    EIZO last night launched the FlexScan S2242W-H and FlexScan S2232W-E, both 22-inch displays with EIZO's state of the art quality. The FlexScan S2232W-E has 1680x1050 wide resolution while the S2242W-H boasts 1920x1200 WUXGA resolution, typical for 24-inch displays. Both panels cover 95 percent of the Adobe RGB color space and 92 percent of the NTSC space, making them suitable for professional work such as audio and video editing or CAD. EIZO will start shipping both monitors simultaneously on February 5th. The lower-resolution S2232W-E should sell for ¥62,800 yen or the equivalent of $705, while the S2242W-H will cost ¥69,800 yen ($784).

    There have been quite a few new releases of "semi-professional" TFTs recently.

    1./ NO, they are not as good as true professional TFTs. The color spectrum (gamut) is about HALF WAY between consumer and true professional screens

    2./ There does not seem to be any improvement in response times or contrast ratios compared to consumer or professional screens

    3./ Pixel count, or pixel density, has not improved either

    So what HAS changed? They are cheaper. Cheaper but NOT as good as the true pro screens. So what is going on? Nobody is buying the really good stuff because it is too expensive, so they are creating "budget" "Semi-pro" TFTs? Or is it that they are slowly ditching the visually superior IPS panels and moving to cheaper panels with color overdrive to improve the color spectrum?

    I'm worried. Until there are reviews on the true quality of these items, IMO, it looks like a step backwards.
