Eizo's new 27" FlexScan EV2780 is the company's first monitor with a USB Type-C port. That Type-C port allows for transmitting video, audio, USB, and power over a single cable. This ought to make the monitor a good choice for laptop users wanting a single-cable connection to a docking station. The Type-C connector can also provide up to 30W to power and charge an attached device. Owners of machines with traditional DisplayPort or HDMI outputs need not worry—the EV2780 has an input for each of those, as well.
The EV2780 could also be a good choice for multi-monitor users, owing to its "bezel-less" one-millimeter frame with a 5.7-mm inner border. The monitor has an LED-backlit IPS panel with a 2560×1440 native resolution. Eizo says the panel's maximum brightness is 350 cd/m2 and the contrast ratio should reach 1000:1. A pair of one-watt speakers and a microphone are built into the display, which is held aloft by a stand with built in height, tilt, and swivel adjustments.
Users can automatically adjust the brightness and color temperature of the screen using Eizo's Screen InStyle software, which can vary those settings depending on the time of day in an effort to conserve power—something the company believes is an important consideration for enterprise-level organizations. Eizo backs the EV2780 with a five-year warranty and a six-month guarantee against bright pixels.
