Introduction

The S1931 is part of the Flexible Edition by Eizo and is a serious competitor to the S1910, which we already reviewed. On average, this new monitor model is almost 100.00 Euros cheaper, although it basically shows the same technical specs and, in addition, is equipped with built-in speakers. OSD menus of the S1931, however, have been cut back substantially: As a result, unlike the S1910, it lacks configuration options for gamma, saturation and hue. Whether it is best take the inexpensive newcomer S1931 or the "well tried" S1910, you are about to find out in the following in-depth review.

It should be noted that the Eizo S1931 is available in two versions which feature different stands. The test monitor that we used for this review goes by the name of S1931SH-BK, with the SH denoting the pillar-type stand and BK referring to black.

All tests were conducted using a digital connection via DVI-D. The analog signal input was merely used to test analog image quality. Our test system ran with a Sapphire Radeon 9800pro graphics card; additionally, some tests were conducted using a GeForce 6600GT as well as a Sapphire Radeon X800XL.

Scope of supply

The Eizo S1931SH-BK ships with all the necessary accessories: It includes one DVI-D cable and one D-Sub cable for PC connection. Furthermore, Eizo supplies one audio cable for the built-in speakers, as well as one USB cable which is needed for adjusting screen settings using the included screen manager software. Aside from the cables, the package contains a fairly detailed quick instructions guide, and a CD offering monitor drivers, one color profile, and a detailed multilingual PDF manual.

Design and mechanics

In terms of design, the S1931SH-BK looks almost exactly the same as other Eizo models such as the S1910, with the exception of the well concealed speakers integrated on the rear side. As an alternative to the regular pillar-type stand version of which our test monitor was, there is also another version, the S1931SA, which features Eizo's Arc-Swing stand.

The looks of the S1931SH-BK are characterized by the functional design aspects that are typical for Eizo.
