REVIEW: Eizo S2433WH-BK
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
As a "Concentration on the most important", EIZO is presenting its 24-inch S2433WH monitor, where ergonomics and naturally also the image quality are being emphasised as particular features of the model.
In keeping with the spirit of the times, these most important features also include EcoView Automatic, which is reported to reduce the power consumption to a low 40 watts for normal usage of the 1.920 x 1.200 pixels and adjusts the screen brightness depending on the lighting in the surroundings.
HDCP via the available DisplayPort input, integrated speakers and an overdrive solution as well as a high-quality S-PVA panel with 10 bit LUTs even allow for hopes beyond EIZO’s announcement that this model may also be established as an inexpensive alternative to the FORIS, the multimedia giant with luxurious features from the same manufacturer, or other models for graphics workers.
The model's performance in the usual detailed tests will show whether EIZO has stuck too much to the most important things with the S2433WH or whether it will beat the competition from its own product lines.
In PC mode, the model was tested on an nVidia Quadro FX4800; video playback was realised both with a PC via DVI and DisplayPort cable as well as with a PS3 and a HDMI-to-DVI cable. In addition, a Gretag Macbeth EyeOne Display2 and a DTP94 colorimeter were used together with the iColor Display 184.108.40.206 software was used for the measurements. The SMTT software was used to determine the input lag.
As well as the fully assembled monitor, the scope of supply includes an accessories package which consists of various cables, some leaflets and an "EIZO Utility Disk” CD. The cables include a D-Sub HD15 cable, a DVI-D single link and a USB uplink cable as well as a 3,5mm jack connector cable. Unfortunately, a DisplayPort cable is not included with the monitor.

Although the numerous leaflets do not include a detailed manual, this is provided in electronic format and the leaflets are sufficient to connect the monitor properly. The thoroughly illustrated installation guide also provides aid. In addition, beyond the lifetime of the monitor, everything that can be read about in the guarantee conditions and the recycling information can be regulated via the leaflets. The only surprise comes in the form of one leaflet with the title "Display Port", which explains to the puzzled tester: "In some cases, images are not displayed correctly …". Without giving anything away in advance, we actually found an example of this. In addition, there is also a CD with drivers and software.
