after a bit of luck I got the Benq 783 for two days to test it. First of all for our german users: a translation of this review will be posted in the premium sector around tomorrow.
What´s to say about the technique in the 783: we can found a TN-Panel with 12ms, viewangle: 140°/140° brightness 300cd/m² and a contrast of 500:1.
Start with the outward appearance, which is quit interesting. The base looks a bit like the arms of an octupus - my first thinking. As body was used a quit strong plastic, which is aid by a metal charge. For a result the stability of the screen is really good, remembers me on the NEC stability. One minus point right here: for a 17" display you need a lot of space at your working desk, the monitor is quit deep. You should check this before you buy the 783.
The idea of the cable inputs is simple but effective. I just needed around to understand how to put the cable in the right position and to lay it out, but after I done it the first time I just have to say: great!
The display is a little bit higher as the S17 or the AL1721, just in case if you want to know it. It´s not that much, but seeable. For big-boys like me, it has the right tallness.
After you put the cables in place and want to use the leaning function, you must be quit carefully, ´cause there is a bit of pressure on the cable. But not that problem if you are soft with the screen.
So that´s enough for the first, I have to take a look to some flats. I will go on with the test later.
