REVIEW: Eizo EV2436WFS-BK Part 12
With the EV2436W, Eizo has developed a really well done monitor which, while intended for office use, should certainly not be limited to it. Its appealing design without much bells and whistles lets the Eizo EV2436W blend into any work environment. Build quality and mechanics are of high value and the EV2436W's ergonomic functions cover everything including pivoting. Its interfaces range from an analog VGA input to the state of the art DisplayPort.
The IPS panel uses power saving LEDs as its light source. Combined with high quality electronics the Eizo EV2436W delivers convincing image quality. Particularly in office environments its versatile power saving functions will prove to be very useful. In addition to a light sensor the EV2436W is equipped with a movement sensor. As soon as it recognizes that there is no user in front of the monitor, the operational status automatically changes to standby mode.
Gamers too will get their money's worth with the Eizo EV2436W. Multi level overdrive control, fast response times and extremely low latency are convincing arguments. Due to its integration of electric current control for brightness changes, any PWM flickering can be ruled out with the EV2436W.
Unfortunately the Eizo EV2436W's factory defaults do not reflect its true potential, as evidenced by our subsequent profiling. The high deviations of the factory defaults relative to the target values can be reduced to a minimum. Thus, profiling is particularly worthwhile with the Eizo EV2436W.
A missing HDMI input, the lack of support for 50 Hz and deficient scaling options make the EV2436W nearly unusable for external devices such as video game consoles and Blu-ray players, albeit admittedly this is not the intended use it had been conceived for.
Last but not least there is the firmware error message we touched upon in the image quality section.
Concluding, the overall impression that the Eizo EV2436W leaves us with is very coherent, and even though it might not be the most affordable of its class, the performance it offers as well as the power saving potential will offset the slightly higher price in the long term anyway.
Overall rating: VERY GOOD

I bought this monitor and its awesome. Only one think is bad. Its sensor for detections presence. I am sitting front of monitor and i got warning as not detection of presence and in few sec will be monitor turn off. Do you know if i can set it somehow or its just manufacture problem and only think what can i do is turn off this option? Thanks.
The Eizo EV2436WFS seems really good.
However, it's a bit expensive for my budget. Is anybody can tell me if the Eizo EV2336WFS and EV2316WFS can be compared to the EV2436WFS ?
Is the EV2336 and EV2316 are flicker free like the EV2436 ?
