Las Vegas, NV (Jan 5, 2006) - BenQ, a leading manufacturer of digital lifestyle devices, today announced that its new 19-inch FP93V LCD monitor has been selected for the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show Technology is a Girl’s Best Friend (TechGirl) Diamond Product Showcase in the Computer category. The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA®), producer of the world’s largest annual technology tradeshow -- the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES®), announced the selected manufacturers and their products on December 1, 2005.
Sponsored by CE Lifestyles, the showcase highlights products with “features that women recognized as most important in their electronics.” In its fourth year, the TechGirl honorees were chosen based on results from a recently conducted survey by CEA Market Research. The survey, What Women Want, sampled more than 1,600 adults (men and women) to find what features women prefer in their consumer electronics devices. The survey along with a review by a panel of female journalists determined the showcase participants.
The FP93V features a simple, refreshing, all-white polished exterior that is elegant in design. The unit comes with an ultra-fast 8ms response time and a high 550:1 contrast ratio, and is the ideal complement to any office and home décor.
The FP93V features a unique base-stand that offers a convenient place to keep stationery, external drives, media players or even a small PC system. The handy two-way cable management design provides helpful ways to manage cable clutter. The adjustable screen position feature ensures optimal viewing and comfort.
The FP93V will be showcased during the entirety of the 2006 International CES, January 5-8, and will be included in a national satellite media tour (SMT) that will highlight the TechGirl program and the products within the diamond product showcase.
