We’re no stranger to BenQ and its high-quality monitors at PC Authority: in our last roundup of 15, 17 and 18in+ monitors BenQ managed to score two awards including Labs Winner for its 15in model.

The whole line has been refreshed since that time, so we were keen to see what was new in the 17in field.

The FP767 wasted no time in establishing itself as a highly capable monitor, with very high scores all-round in all of the DisplayMate tests. This included the best score overall in the colour and greyscale tests where it nearly attained a perfect score (75 out of 80). In the real-world application tests the FP767 ranked second only to the excellent Samsung SyncMaster 172X.

Aesthetically the FP767 lacks the finesse of previous BenQ monitors, but it more than made up for it with excellent viewing angles, colours and vibrancy. BenQ’s pixel policy isn’t the best though, offering replacement/repairs for any single fault within the centre ninth of the screen on one hand, but only repairing/replacing the screen when there are eight dud pixels elsewhere. This could lead to problems down the track if pixels fail.
