EIZO Releases Sustainable Frameless 23.8-inch and 22.5-inch LCD Monitors

EIZO announced the release of the 23.8-inch FlexScan EV2460 and 22.5-inch FlexScan EV2360 - two LCD monitors with a frameless design for business environments such as trading rooms, back offices, and control rooms. They feature environmental-friendly specifications to aid companies in achieving their sustainable development goals, which are becoming more recognized worldwide.

The FlexScan EV2460 is the successor model to the FlexScan EV2450 and uses a 23.8-inch LCD panel with 1920 x 1080 native resolution. The FlexScan EV2360 uses a 22.5-inch LCD panel - the smallest amongst EIZO's frameless models. The small-footprint EV2360 has a width of 499 mm and a large native resolution of 1920 x 1200. Both monitors implement LED-backlit IPS (in-plane switching) panel technology with 178° wide viewing angles.
As part of its efforts to maintain environmentally responsible manufacturing, EIZO developed the monitors without flame retardant in the plastic body to improve recyclability. EIZO also uses recyclable packing material for the boxes the monitors are shipped in.

Furthermore, EIZO incorporates its own EcoView technologies to cut down on power consumption without any additional effort from end users. EcoView Optimizer 2 saves power by fine-tuning the balance between brightness and gain according to the content displayed on the screen. Auto EcoView automatically adjusts the screen's brightness in accordance with changes in the ambient brightness to trim power usage while reducing eye fatigue. With these technologies, typical power consumption is reduced to as little as 10 watts (EV2460) and 11 watts (EV2360) - up to 40% less compared to displaying at maximum brightness. Both monitors are certified by worldwide comprehensive sustainability certifications such as TCO Certified Generation 8 and EnergyStar. This provides evidence to companies that need to verify conformance with their own procurement requirements according to ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investment or SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) policy.

The FlexScan EV2460 and EV2360 are equipped with four and two USB 3.1 Type-A ports respectively. This allows users to conveniently connect devices, such as a mouse, keyboard, or headset, directly to the monitor rather than the PC.

The latest version of EIZO's proprietary software Screen InStyle allows users save individual settings that are reflected automatically in the connected monitor. This is useful for connecting laptops to a shared monitor such as those used in hot-desking or shared workspaces, providing enhanced comfort and work efficiency.

Additional Features
  • DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D, and D-Sub inputs (EV2460)
  • DisplayPort, HDMI, and D-Sub inputs (EV2360)
  • Flexible stands with 140 mm height adjustment, 35 degrees upward / 5 degrees downward tilt, 344 degrees swivel and 90 / -90 degrees rotation
  • Eye care functions including flicker-free display and dimming range from 1 cd/m2
  • Optional stand bracket (PCSK-03R) for attaching a small PC to the back of the monitor
  • Five-year warranty and six-month no bright pixel guarantee

Yea well, I dont have much doubt about quality, but I do need 120 and more Hz. When Eizo? :D

Also preferably with low power consumption. And flame retardants which are in fact some nasty shit anyway..

Worst case scenario is:

"FIRE! FIRE!"

I guess the pixels were all free ranged and ethically sourced too?

Not sure if trolling...

Did you know, that LED monitors are actually the same LCD monitors but with LED backlight?

Speaking of "Frameless." It does have about 2mm of plastic frame around the Screen film, however there is another 5-6mm of frame around the actual LCD matrix. So i would really not call it frameless, but it is a slim frame design.

What the last guy said. It's still LED.
...1200. Both monitors implement LED-backlit IPS (in-plane switching) panel technology with 178° wide viewing angles.
LCD or what we used to call those fatass monitors back in the day used CCFL as backlight. Modern LED backlit LCD are just called LED monitor.

This is truly disgusting. Is it possible that NOBODY knows who and what EIZO is? What weight that name bears in the world where 'gaming 144Hz, overclockable' or '100,000,000:1 contrast ratio (fictive)' is not of major (or any) importance?

Eizo produces high-end displays for decades, the kind that is used in medical industry, for professional CAD/CAM, printing industry and so on. Where the quality is the only measure? The few thousands worth paid, no questions asked, for anyone who doesn't compromise on quality?

And... it's IPS, by the way. And I know fully well how IPS functions, before someone asks...

It's not for everybody, it's a top stuff. Even when they produce a relatively cheaper product, it's typically top quality in the range. This one may be a niche product, but that should also be very clear from the text...

But telling this to the people who actually believe that Razer produces own, 'gaming' (sic!) headphones instead Sennheiser (or whoever actually knows how to build them well) is doing contract manufacturing and Razer sells only the brand is...

Well, this is kinda new low in 'community'...

No, my moose friend, I have not o_O... PROBABLY! Ill took them again, just to be sure! But I fail to see how it concerns you, though. Care to elaborate, perhaps?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustainability_standards_and_certification

It's... painfully obvious what standards a computer screen can uphold and what not. What is sustainability here? Spelled in the article:

"With these technologies, typical power consumption is reduced to as little as 10 watts (EV2460) and 11 watts (EV2360) - up to 40% less compared to displaying at maximum brightness"

I had a pleasure to work with several EIZO models over number of years - say 10, but... most likely more, in different classes, not just price-ranges. All of whom were superior to similarly priced models I had seen /cocks head/ Sony /grinds unsettlingly/, NEC, LG /grins even more unsettlingly/. Yes, CRTs, then Trinitrons (Sony-tube; let's not forget how many producer of Trinitron CRTs were, *not* monitors or models, but just good'ol'cathode).

First time I actually worked on their LCD - boy, what a difference it was /growls/ - but it was noticeably superior to others then... I'd bought one for myself then, but there was a hefty price that I could've not afford.

He goes a bit hot on that marketing, but I do have my own Eizo, which currently is nearing 33k hours of use and its still in excellent condition (meaning it works without issues). Only thing I would replace it with would be another better Eizo. :D There is huge quality gap between Eizo and rest of the folks, maybe with some exception for some graphic oriented flagships from other manufacturers.

Oh I never said anything bad about EIZO. They're just not for average users.
The price gap is huge too, I would say way too huge for the quality gap.

That doesnt change the fact my head hurts when watching a LED monitor. And my head doesnt hurt when watching my LCD monitor from 2010. My monitor isnt fat lol.

Yea sadly good quality CCFL is more pleasant than bad category of LED. Or I have feeling any LED.

That said, I had no issues with Samsung QLED TVs or OLED. Unfortunately we are probably not there for OLEDs as PC monitors.

Still using my 24", 16:10, 60Hz, 10-bit S-PVA panel(samsung), CCFL backlight FlexScan 2411W counting 48000+hours (13years in a month)... with not a single pixel lost, no backlight bleeding, same light uniformity across panel, no lag input, no eyes strain even after hours of usage, no noticable ghosting when gaming, amazing text... and I could keep going...

Yes, the monitor was costing a small fortune back then (Jan 2007) compared to others, but IMHO was worth it. Still is.
That very same panel Samsung was using it back then at own 24" model with a cost of ~450€. The EIZO variant was costing ~1300€!
Probably in 2020 I will change the monitor not because its defecting or something. I just want to go to ultrawide 1440p or 1200p.

Price difference is due cherry picked panels and really expensive electronics around it. Panel itself apart dead pixels aint that much important, its the stuff around that is important and expensive. Also reason why it lasts eternity and half (at least I hope so :D). Only thing that survived so long was my Nokia (still works).

Precise... its the electronics supporting the panel (from power supply, to every controller or sub-device) that are making huge impact on almost every aspect of the monitor.
I'm going to miss this kind of feature quality and reliability when the time comes to replace it.

Yea me too. I honestly wonder if EIZO is still as good as one I have. Sincerely hope that it is..
