BenQ T905 LCD Monitor .. issues

by Haisook / July 17, 2006 12:15 AM PDT

I bought this 19" monitor yesterday. It has dual input methods; D-Sub & DVI. (official page:

I connected the monitor via D-Sub, since I haven't bought a DVI vid card yet. It seems the upper portion of the display has more contrast than the lower portion. For instance, colors look darker and text is shadwoy in the upper part. I wonder if this is because of the D-Sub connection, the limited vertical angles, or the old video card? Will DVI show better display?

Another thing, when I scroll fast in webpages, the black text turns kinda green with something like ghosting. The monitor has 8ms resp time. So is this normal for such LCD monitor?

I'd appreciate your opinions.
Using Win Xp Pro
Intel something Video card (very old)

Your first LCD?

Ghosting is pretty normal. Maybe you need to try others?

As to brightness, that's either settings in the display or card. Some displays are dimmer than others.

Yes, it's my first LCD.

Anyone else would like to share opinions?

If the contrast varies when you move your head up/down, then try moving the monitor back some... you may be too close and encountering shift because of your viewing angle.

If you got the monitor locally, take it back and ask them to hook it up to one of their computers via DVI. If you still don't like its behavior, exchange it for another brand/model.

Thanks, here's something...

I had already contacted BenQ when I just found this:

The article explains with an example that typically, most LCD screens will show the upper part darker than the lower part due to limited vertical angles, so it's not a warranty issue.

Now I need to relax.

A New Issue (or something)
by Haisook / July 25, 2006 5:57 AM PDT

I've noticed when I get very close to the monitor, like 3 inches, I can see the particles kind of vibrating, as if there is a liquid beneath. Is this normal? Since it's based on liquid crystals technology.

What do you think..?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
