It's just a "solid performer" -- but then again, there's quite a few of those out there already. This is one of those "Oh cool, that's a good quality LCD but meh" kinda deal.
The price tag is a kick in the bean-bag though. $1200? Ouch.

Had we been scoring back in November 2006, the BenQ FP241W would have come very close to straight 10s because it was simply an amazing product at the time - well ahead of anything else out there.
The price is definitely a kicker, you're right, but I don't think it'd be as expensive as you're suggesting in North America, because the UK price quoted includes tax. I'd imagine it'd less than $900 before tax and, in Canada, it'll be around $1050 CAD.
