Introduction

Eizo introduced three new 24-inch models in the past few weeks. As well as the S2431W we reviewed in this test, the S2441W and CG241W have also been added to the company’s product range. The Eizo HD2441W is aimed at multi-media users and offers two additional HDMI (1.2 b) inputs compared to the S2431W and also comes with a Picture-in-Picture function. The Eizo CG241W from the Color Graphic series is aimed at graphics professionals and offers a 12-Bit lookup table (LUT), hardware calibration, Digital Uniformity Equalizer for colour purity and even brightness distribution amongst other features, making it compatible with video editing and animation systems from manufacturers Avid and Autodesk.

In our test, we examine the Eizo S2431W, which is the basic model of the three new 24-inch models. We intend to clarify all that the S2431W is capable of and for which target group this monitor is suitable.

All results published here were obtained via the digital input using an XFX GeForce 8800GTX graphics card. Only the analogue image quality was tested via the analogue connection.

Scope of supply

The Eizo S2431W comes with a CD that contains a multi-lingual manual in PDF format, ICC colour profiles, an image adjustment program and the ScreenManager Pro application software. However, this latter only runs on Windows (2000/XP/Vista) and not on Macintosh. In addition, a multi-lingual Getting Started Guide in hard copy and a booklet with the terms of the guarantee are included. A D-Sub cable, a DVI-D cable, an audio cable, a power cable and a USB cable complete the scope of supply.
