BenQ FP222WH 22in Widescreen LCD MonitorFormer staff writer - May 27, 2007
The BenQ FP222WH has a removable stand that clips onto the arm of the monitor. Once in place you will be able to stand the monitor upright.
The rear of the monitor, which houses the inputs for HDMI, DVI or D-Sub (analog), comes with two additional features. The area where the BenQ logo is located is actually a removable panel, which houses a mounting bracket underneath, so the monitor can be hung on a wall. The other feature is a clip to hold your cables.
The BenQ FP222WH comes with a built in power supply, so it does not need to be connected to an adapter. The built in power supply is auto sensing, which means that as long as you have the correct power cord it will automatically change from 110V to 220V and vise versa, if you happen to be transferred or move to a country that uses different standards. This feature eliminates the need for a converter.
The BenQ FP222WH is also multi-compatible; you will have three options of video input:
- D-Sub (Analog VGA): Referred to as DE/DB-15 connector and cable (15 pin), this is a high density connection used normally for VGA transfer and will carry an analog signal. These are common with most CRT monitors and aging graphics boards that do not have digital signal capabilities.
- DVI or Digital Visual Interface: a digital interface that is used to maximize the quality of a digital display device such as LCD Monitors. A DVI interface utilizes digital protocol to transfer illumination of pixels as binary data.
- HDMI or High Definition Multimedia Interface: an all-in-one Digital audio/visual interface that can transmit uncompressed streams. It is compatible with HCDP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection), a technology that is evolving with many HD-Video peripherals (Blu-Ray and HD-DVD).
The left side of the monitor houses eight buttons that allow you to fine tune the display.
The cables that are included in the package are DVI, Power and D-Sub. I was a little surprised that BenQ did not supply an HDMI cable. Surprisingly there was no CD, nor a user manual included in the package, just 2 safety manuals. I have contacted BenQ and they did say this was a packing error and have shipped me the CD (Drivers) and user manual.
