EIZO today extended its FlexScan line of widescreen LCD monitors with the introduction of the 20.1-inch FlexScan S2031W (1680x1050) and the 24.1-inch FlexScan S2431W (1920x1200). Designed specifically for business environments such as back offices and trading rooms, these monitors offer increased horizontal screen space, brightness and color control, energy saving features, and a sleek design. The FlexScan S2031W has a brightness of 300 cd/m2 and contrast ratio of 900:1 while for the S2431 these figures are 450 cd/m2 and 1000:1 respectively. The viewing angles for both models are 178° horizontally and vertically. Midtone response times of 8 ms for the S2031W and 6 ms for the S2431W ensure real-time stock data, games, news, charts, etc. are displayed without ghosting. The FlexScan S2031W and S2431W come with EIZO’s BrightRegulator function which reads the ambient light of the office environment and adjusts the brightness accordingly. The FlexScan S2431W also keeps brightness at the ideal level with EIZO’s patented backlight sensor. The FlexScan S2031W and FlexScan S2431W are shipping now. Date of availability varies by country.

Not a bad idea, but I dont see businesses jumping on this unless there is a nice volume discount.

A very nice volume discount. Most businesses don't even find a need to phase out their CRTs.

most businesses would change perfectly working Crt monitors for Lcd instantly if it were financially viable and the energy savings coupled with a bulk discount could make it so.

My company gets new computer hardware every three years. Usually the new computers come with new displays. Some people are still using CRTs (and the older computers), but most of us have LCDs. Unfortunately, no one cares about dead pixels (except me it seems) and they don't care about the three or four I have. If you have an agreement with Dell for so many computers and displays, and each one has an extended warranty, why not get what you paid for? Dell should cater to large businesses (we're Fortune 500). I hate dead pixels! :banghead:

My display isn't even the worst of them. One guy's has a huge discoloration tear down the middle.

You would be suprised. Especially in the medical industry. I have 8 17" CTRs just siting in the back collecting dust because thats whats left of ours. I probably have 75 LCDs in the building now. And Samsung SyncMasters are never cheep.

See "displaying stock data". A broker, or people who work at the stock market usually have 4-8 LCDs from what I've seen on TV. But usually not 24" but a few 19" or 20".

Sadly I think, that the guy who gets to order them knew jackshit about it and bough TFTs with TN panel... viewing angles suck so much on those.

hopefully these lcd has a switch or some sensor that automaticly rotates the desktop when you turn it verticaly. Those samsung ones are gay, you rotate the screen, and you have to manually rotate the desktop.

I'm not saying they aren't gay but for some reason they are still $400 bucks a pop. I would hope with the price tag attached to that new 24" (over $1000) that it does do it automatically.

What sets EiZO as the Rolls Royce of LCDs are their panels. They use 14-Bit Color Processing , I wonder what panels are being used on these new models?

Both monitors allow 12-bit signal processing, but the panels are actually 8-bit.

For anyone following this thread: EIZO panels (esp. the high end range) truely are the BEST TFT panels for graphics quality and color balance/consistency. Designers swear by them. And they have lots of calibration controls.

I have an old EIZO FlexScan, 1280x1024, and about 6 years old. It beats the hell out of my newer Samsung Syncmasters. Only problem is the old panel is slow. Not very good for gaming, but excellent for photoshop, illustrator, office etc.

If these new EIZO have 6ms AND their old quality, then they ARE worth the money for people who use screens all day.

That should not happen, if in doubt, install Samsung drivers.


Judging by the specs, they're most likely 8bit MVA panels.
Seriously, I doubt that. My guess is S-PVA or S-IPS
