The Eizo Foris FS2735 is a feature-packed 27" 1440p gaming monitor that comes with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and FreeSync support. Its price tag is hefty, but it performs well enough to be used by eSports professionals, both in terms of in-game responsiveness and picture quality.

"However, while ULMB is inherent to G-Sync, FreeSync monitors don't necessarily offer Blur Reduction, so that's just one of the many extras Eizo offers with the Foris FS2735."

ULMB is not inherent to G-Sync. In fact, as of today, the use of G-Sync almost always precludes the use of ULMB. They are separate features. Most G-Sync monitors will have ULMB but just looking at BlurBusters' list, the following G-Sync monitors do not: Acer Predator X34, AOC AGON AG352UCG, ASUS ROG PG348Q, HP OMEN X 35, Acer Predator models: XB271HK, XB280HK, XB281HK, and XB321HK, ASUS PG27AQ.

Considering the name on this monitor and the price, this is a total dud. Its color space doesn't cover sRGB or AdobeRGB right. And it comes with a DVI(?) connection that can't drive 1440p@144Hz anyway.

Inherent in a sense that it oftentimes/most times comes along with G-Sync. It can never be combined with G-Sync though, as ULMB requires static refresh rate for the strobe to work, while that's against the very nature of G-Sync. In short, we're in agreement with each other, but perhaps it wasn't clear enough what I meant with "inherent" :toast:

It’s a gaming monitor? How is colour space actually relevant to gaming?

I tried the their previous VA Panel once, and it was HORRIBLE! It had over 7 dead pixels and the screen wasn't uniform lighting wise.

Obviously nothing to do with EIZO, AV is just super cheap.

I been using a Non-Gaming Monitor since 2013 or so, the EIZO CX240.

I had 3 pieces of this monitor and returned them all. All had terrible backlight bleeding, your photos here are trying to cover it but it is much worse in person. One of them had a lot of dead pixels, lucky that at least i tried this one in the shop. Plastics are a flimsy and squeeky around the edges, the monitor doesn't feel solid. Not worth the money at all.

Might consider this when it hits the $600 and gets FreeSync2 as well...

Is the only proper Freesync IPS 1440p monitor the Nixeus EDG 27 that does 30-144 FPS full range without limitations?

I have not read the whole review just yet, but I'm really hoping the price will go down to around 400 - 500 € in time, since I bought the predecessor model Foris FG2421 for just over 400 € some years ago. I'm still using the FG2421 and it's an excellent gaming monitor without major sacrifices in image quality. I see this new model as an updated version, but it's such a shame that 1440p panels are still so expensive, even though 144 Hz panels are not. Another bummer is that if you want to use adaptive sync with this panel right now, you will have to buy an AMD card and they only offer quite high power consuming models as of now, if you value low power consumption and heat in general, but we can hope that when Navi comes out, they will consume much less power and this panel would be way cheaper.

I also wish there would be 24 or 25 inch model of this monitor, since 27" is too large for close viewing distance, and there must be people who appreciate higher pixel per inch ratio over large panel.

Good monitor. Will buy two. Not often possible to meet such a reasonably priced offer!

1000€ for PWM dimming and freesync only?

Is warranty 5 years or it has like most of their "5 years or xx.xxx hours used"?

As for color coverage. 80% aRGB is pretty good for something thats gaming monitor. If you want more, than it gets rather expensive. Also Im not sure there is high Hz monitor paired with lets say 95% aRGB (kinda standard for photo post-processing LCD). Plus for photos you do want really good backlight, which is very rare in any gaming LCD.

And price? Its Eizo. Thats equivalent of Leica or Zeiss. From my experience, these monitors last longer than you would actually want to use them. My EIZO has clocked 27k hours usage (1125 days of use) and its as good as new. Tho only way its related to reviewed Eizo is that it was perfectly calibrated out of the box.

Normally, yes. But just look at those greens: this thing doesn't even cover sRGB as well as a crappy $150 TN-Film monitor.

Well mine is supposedly 100% sRGB but it certainly wasn’t a feature I purchased it for. I had to look it up.

Thats coverage with default factory settings. It does cover 100% of sRGB just it would require calibrating to match it, eg. creating custom profile. Pretty sure that can be done.

That graph there is just test of how its calibrated from factory, it doesnt display whole possible gamut of LCD.

So, which one is it? Is it a gaming monitor or does it require calibration? Because not many gamers have the necessary equipment to do that.
Fwiw, those greens are so off, even calibration won't set them right, I'm afraid.
