The BenQ FP951 is considered as a cross platform computer display monitor primarily for its support for two of the most widely used mainstream operating system platforms. This hardware component features a 19-inch viewing screen which renders textual and graphical contents based on the video signals transmitted from the installed graphics processing card. A computer user has the option of choosing between a conventional 15-pin D-sub analog or a Digital Video Interface connection. The choice of course would also be dependent on what is available on the video adapter card. Essentially the analog signals that are processed from the 15-pin D-sub video output port are digital data converted to analog for the purpose of transmitting information. In a sense some of the quality may be lost during the digital to analog conversion process. For the Digital Video Interface output on the other hand the video signals are passed on as is to the attached computer display monitor like the BenQ FP951 device.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The design of this hardware component is anchored on simplicity with the intention of not concerning the computer user with the technical details involved in the display subsystem. The manufacturer incorporates a 700:1 contrast ration supported by a 250 cd/m2 brightness setting. These display properties basically define how light will be handled by the BenQ FP951 since they deal mostly with the luminance. The device driver also provides the computer user access to other display attributes which may affect the quality of the final output. Since this computer display monitor is based on the Liquid Crystal Display technology, rendering of images is quite different when compared to the Cathode Ray Tube based computer monitor. The manufacturer has designed this particular computer display monitor to make use of a 0.294 mm pixel pitch. This essentially dictates the distance between same colored dots on the computer screen. The smaller the distance the better the display quality. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and BenQ FP951 errors before installing any driver updates.
