Eizo CS2420 and CG2420 displays are ready for color-critical work

Eizo's a well-known name in the professional monitor arena, and its latest pair of monitors continue that tradition. Meet the ColorEdge CS2420 and CG2420.

These monitors have 1920×1200 IPS panels, which might seem like a rather bland specification at first glance. However, color and contrast are these panels' forte. The panels and circuitry on these monitors allow for 10-bit-per-pixel output using a 16-bit internal LUT. Those characteristics result in rather impressive color specifications for both models.

Let's start with the "lower-end" CS2420. This model has a 1000:1 static contrast ratio and covers 98% of the sRGB color space. Eizo also includes dedicated circuitry to ensure optimal color uniformity across the screen. The display's gamma curve comes calibrated from the factory, too. For users concerned with maximum accuracy under mixed lighting conditions, Eizo offers an optional shielding hood.

The CG2420 is an (even more) upscale model. This display has an impressive 1500:1 contrast ratio and can cover 99% of the DCI-P3 color space. This model includes its own retractable calibration sensor, built into the top edge of the screen. Eizo promises the equalization circuitry on this model ensures a Delta-E color variation of less than three across the whole screen. A shading hood is included in the box. The company says that the CG2420 will be color-accurate just three minutes after being powered up, too.

Both models come with calibration software and stands that allow for height, tilt and swivel adjustments. Input connectivity comes by way of DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI ports. As an added convenience, the monitors include USB 3.0 hub with three ports, one of which has dedicated charging circuitry.

Eizo will be selling the CS2420 and CG2420 soon. The company offers 5-year warranty coverage for these displays, as well as a 6-month zero-bright-pixel guarantee.

    I’m very unhappy. I bought this monitor last week.
    And has a faulty full pixel, in all RGB colors.
    Stay away!!

    How do these Eizo models compare to, say, the Dell Ultrasharps that are also high color, 10:16 resolution ratio, and well calibrated?

      • DPete27

      Yeah, as far as I can tell, the DCI-P3 color space isn’t as broad as the Adobe RGB color space and there are plenty of sub-$500 factory calibrated monitors out there that can cover 99% -ish of that. Dell Ultrasharps being some of them. The [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236332<]Asus PA249Q[/url<] is another popular one.

    What ever happened to those 26.5 1920×1920 panels they were going to roll out? I was actually pretty excited at the prospect of a multi-monitor productivity setup with those.

      [url<]http://www.eizoglobal.com/products/atc/sq2814/index.html#tab02[/url<] Hows 2048x2048?

        Ugh, if only the frames on those weren’t so terrible. I get that they are purpose-built, but a 2in frame is off-putting no matter what the end use.

        On a related note, I did discover that they finally released the monitor I was referencing, but at roughly $1500 a pop, a triple monitor setup is a little out of reach… [url<]http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1138908-REG/eizo_ev2730qfx_bk_thin_bezel_26_5_tft.html[/url<]

    “For users concerned with maximum accuracy under mixed lightning conditions, Eizo offers an optional shielding hood.”

    Maximum accuracy isn’t my first concern when I’m experiencing mixed lightning…

      Never heard of hoods that protect you from lightning?

    At least you can get these in the master race aspect ratio.

      21:9?

      Golden Ratio

        AND fits 1920x1080p content (videos/console games) without any blurring while at the same time gaining taskbar or other workspace

    1500 contrast ratio is unusual. Improved IPS tech?

      • Srsly_Bro
      • 4 years ago

      1500^9000 contrast ratio

        Uh… 9972?

    Easily a $1,000+ price tag and it is not build for gaming either.

    Thanks, but I’ll pass

      I’ve often wondered if you were serious or if you were doing a rather poor imitation of a troll.

      I’ve stopped wondering.

        Honest opinions are now considered to be trolling?

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts…… Even tho no one asked

      • LightenUpGuys

      Lol they make some of the best gaming monitors too.

      • Krogoth

      It seems videophiles are still mad that most of the market frankly don’t care about color accuracy. I keep enjoying the delicious tears of impotent rage.

        • crabjokeman
        • 4 years ago

        Quit while you’re behind.

        • crabjokeman
        • 4 years ago

        No, they’re not mad. They’re just rolling their eyes at gaming tards that seem to think they’re the center of the universe and the target market for every product announced at TR.

          Unfortunately, 70-80% of the current PC Enthusiasts fall into PC gamer demographic.

          The listed monitors are videophile and professional-tier hardware cater towards a vanishing small demographic.

          Besides, LCDs are weak at gamma (cannot handle true blacks or really bright, vibrant colors).

            Had to upvote you for truth.

            Ugly truth, but truth nonetheless.

    Finally I can see chuckula’s true colors.

      Is “jackass” a color?

      (j/k chuckula, I heart you).

        • tygrus
        • 4 years ago

        I have no idea what color chuckula is, but anyone who starts personally attacking others based on color could be called a “jackass”. Apart from that, “jackass” as a color could be a slightly dirty brown shade of grey.
