"Smart Insight" sounds like more of a gimmick then something gamers would actually use. Most users and also gamers dont touch the brightness settings ever again, once their monitors been unboxed and set up.

Other features gamers will enjoy include speaker and headphone jacks, a remote control with access to the on-screen display menu, and multiple connectivity options with dual HDMI inputs, one DVI-D (digital), and one D-Sub (analog) input.
Other features gamers will enjoy are using their OWN speakers.... Speakers for LCD screens are at best very poor sound quality. No bass, No mids, No body and a rather harsh sounding 'rasping' tone almost like if someones licking the only ear you can hear from if you are deaf in the other ear.... So NO gamers will NOT enjoy it.

Other features that gamers will find useless: headphone jacks, a remote control with access to the on-screen display menu

Headphone jacks on gaming screens are a waste of time as gamers usually have a dedicated sound card so would preferably plug into instead, even at lan games.

the only time where i think someone would REMOTELY find this useful is in an office environment where people have cheap websurfing and wordprocessing grade PCs and not gaming machines where they would like to listen to music or watch videos online while their on break so long as they are connected via HDMI. Nothing is said about analogue audio inputs so I assume it doesnt come with any.

no mention of price so i will stick with getting a catleap as its probably going to be cheaper.

Not bad at all! Just a few minor notes, EIZO:
- Forget about the inbuilt speakers.
- Gamers don't need a scaler in the screen, video cards can do that.
- Make it 100 or 120Hz! Your "3.5ms" IPS panel should be able to do that easily.

Next, a 27" 2560x1440 version of the above please.

The most important question is..............

is it a true 120 hz refresh rate, or is it 60hz with interpolation??

The FS2333 is, unfortunately, just a 60Hz screen. EIZO never claimed otherwise.

1920 x 1080, 60Hz, how boring.

+1 to comments by Freedowm and Mistral.

EIZO are WASTING MONEY spending $ on marketing inferior products when they should instead be pushing and investing in quality and resolution. (They USED to do this... I spent THOUSANDS of company dollars on Eizo when TFTs first came out... with and without inbuilt speakers... but all very fine products in their time. But now there're better products from other manufacturers. Strategically, it is incompetent: brand dilution and brand damage making PR and therefore awareness of the Eizo brand around inferior rather than superior products. PR team should fall on swords. New strategy director needed. I'm shorting the stock)

In my opinion, the specs of this monitor are very strong. 2 hdmi ports, a DVI port, and VGA port, and 2 sounds jacks (and not to mention 1080P resolution)! Very strong indeed...

However, if the price is too high, this monitor will be overlooked by most gamers.

It shows a company selling out without heart. Claiming to be targeting a specific market while knowing nothing about that.
