12 Reasons For

Excellent Owner Reviews

Owners have rated this Benq flatpanel monitor as excellent on average.

Nice Design

Four Benq BL912 owners who reviewed it thought it was retro. This month Duncan Woodward gave it a score of 80 out of 100 and he wrote on Amazon “It's a good deal, especially if you're looking for a modern monitor for a retro computer or console” in his review. In October last year P. Skidmore said in their review of this PC monitor “Perfect for retro gaming”. Paul Vernon scored the product 5 stars and he wrote in his Benq BL912 review on Amazon “Awesome for Retro Acorn Archimedes computers!”.

One Benq BL912 owner reckoned that the product was neat. Five years ago Ejr mentioned “Externally it is neat and unobtrusive with easily adjustable height, tilt” but even so they gave this PC monitor a rating of 60 out of 100.

Reasonably Priced

Some customers who purchased the Benq BL912 concluded that it was a bargain for the price. Des mentioned in their Benq BL912 review last year “Feels just as cheap as you might suspect.”. Duncan Woodward said on Amazon in October “A cheap monitor with a trick up it's sleeve” in his review. Duncan Woodward also mentioned “The general build quality is a bit cheap feeling”.

Benq Has Excellent Reviews for Its PC Monitors

Small monitors manufactured by Benq have excellent ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all PC screens (not just small monitors) and found that Benq also has excellent ratings across its entire range.

Easy to Use

One customer who reviewed it concluded that it was easy to setup. Sully said “The monitor itself couldn't have been easier to set up, came well protected”. One Benq BL912 reviewer who reviewed it reckoned that it was easy to use. Sully scored it very highly and wrote on Amazon “It also has blue-light adjustments which are so simple to use via a button on the base of the monitor”.

Good Size

One Benq BL912 reviewer who reviewed this PC monitor concluded that it was a good height.

Good Picture Quality

One customer reckoned that the Benq BL912 had good colour saturation. Ejr wrote five years ago “The Windows 7 monitor calibration tool failed to yield a pleasant display with accurate colours” .

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to it.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays that have an LED Display and we think cheaper PC monitors such as the Asus VB178T[plb_1410090_price] is also worth considering.

1280 X 1024 Pixels Display Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels, which is typical of many small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), which is typical of many LCD screens of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode

Small monitors that have been around for more than two years have power consumptions when in PowerSave mode of between 0.15W and 18W, and the average power consumption when in PowerSave mode is 4W. The Benq BL912 has one of the lower power consumptions when in PowerSave mode (only 0.3 Watts) amongst small monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

With a horizontal viewing angle of 170 degrees, the Benq BL912 has a quite wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to the BL912.

5 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

A few Benq BL912 reviewers who reviewed the product concluded that it was not good quality. Duncan Woodward said this month “Whilst not the best quality picture” . Five years ago Ejr mentioned “Inadequate image quality and hard to adjust” in their Benq BL912 review.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other flatpanel monitors that came out more than two years ago, the Benq BL912 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think the Asus VW199TL[plb_2951688_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Perfect for retro gaming on an Amiga :) You wouldn't want to use this on any modern machine though!
