EIZO FlexScan EV2436WFS-GY Monitor Overview

    Hello Giktayms! There are some things that cannot be passed by calmly. Most interested in cars will always be happy to see the legendary DeLorean , football fans will dream all their lives to visit Camp Nou or Maracana, and there are many legends in the IT world. No matter how history develops, no matter what players enter the market - EIZO will forever remain synonymous with a quality monitor. The well-known Japanese company continues to delight fans not only with ultra-expensive professional monitors, but also with down-to-earth high-quality solutions. I was lucky to get EIZO FlexScan EV2436WFS-GY- office monitor on an IPS matrix with a resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels (aspect ratio 16:10). Subjective sensations and details under the cut. The last two letters of the GY index mean that the monitor case is gray, the black version of the monitor is much more widespread BK (Black), but they are identical in filling and what I said about the gray monitor will be fully applicable to black. Talking about the packaging of the monitor for a long time does not make sense, a device on which you can see the whole world yourself do not want to be kept in a box. I will definitely note the following points: cardboard is dense and of high quality, polystyrene foam reliably covers the monitor from external influences.

    Scope of delivery EIZO FlexScan EV2436WFS-GY: monitor, power cable, DisplayPort cable, DVI cable, software disc (manual, drivers, and EIZO Screenmanager Pro program on the disk). Everything that is necessary for work is available.

    The technical specifications of the monitor look quite promising, some functions, such as a presence detector at the workplace, are rare and are a feature of this particular monitor.

    Monitor appearance

    Strict lines and light gray color give EIZO FlexScan EV2436 a stern fighter of the office front, who will not be easy to register in sparkling-shining gaming systems. However, this is not scary, for gamers come up with their own little things regarding appearance, and the essence of EIZO is different.
    A thin frame (only 15 mm) around the screen is tilted inward and gives the monitor elegance. In addition to the manufacturer’s logo in the lower left corner, there are no decorative elements on the frame.

    The use of LED backlighting made it possible to reduce the thickness of the case to 26 mm, and, despite the rather massive leg, the monitor looks very neat. Due to high-quality plastic, the impression of solidity and reliability of the device is correctly created. In addition, not a single part of the monitor case is polished, which means the appearance will retain freshness for a long time and will not be easily scratched and covered with dust.

    In terms of screen adjustment, EIZO is out of competition. The height of the monitor is adjustable from 3.6 cm (minimum) to 19.4 cm (maximum). The monitor is fixed securely and without jerking.

    The rotating stand in the leg allows you to rotate the monitor without lifting it from the table by 340 degrees, that is, practically rotate around its axis.

    The tilt of the screen changes from 3 degrees forward to 32 degrees back. The adjustment is very smooth.

    Like most EIZO monitors (and not only), the EV2436WFS-GY can be used in portrait orientation. In this position, the height adjustment is from 3.6 cm to 9.7 cm.

    Design delights touched ... the back of the monitor. There are vertical lines on the monitor leg, and an interesting latch for cables, and an unusual handle for carrying the monitor. The foot comes pre-installed, but can be easily dismantled, and a VESA 100 mm bracket can be installed in its place.

    Power tests

    The manufacturer claims the maximum power consumption of the monitor - 60 watts on a white screen with normal consumption in the region of 19 watts.
    In off mode, the consumption is less than 0.3 watts.
    When measuring, the following figures were obtained: the maximum power consumption of the monitor is 36.2 watts, consumption in the off state is 0.4 watts.
    It’s nice to understand that the real numbers turned out to be less than those proposed for the passport, and consumption in the standby state should be looked at with some indulgence, firstly, the difference is miserable and can be attributed to the error of the measuring device, and secondly, even if such a difference occurs perhaps, the annual cost overrun will be less than one kilowatt, that is, less than 5 rubles per year.

    Control buttons

    On the front panel, almost in the middle of the monitor, there are seven control buttons. From right to left: power button, up / brightness, down / volume, confirmation, mode, input selection, ECO button. Next are the light sensor and the presence sensor.

    Ports & Connectors

    On the reverse side, in addition to design refinements, there are monitor connection ports. On the left side on the lower edge, when looking at the monitor from the back, there is a power socket and a switch.

    On the right side, there are three video inputs - full-sized DisplayPort, DVI and D-Sub. A little sad without HDMI, because you could use this port to connect a game console or an external multimedia player, but it quickly passes when you start using DisplayPort.

    On the left side on the left are two USB 2.0 ports and audio connectors. Again, a minor remark, in our age it is time to embed USB 3.0 hubs.

    Cables connected to both the main ports and USB or audio do not interfere with monitor rotation and neatly fit into the leg in a special holder.

    OSD menu

    Pressing the “Enter” confirmation button turns on the on-screen menu. It does not have a lot of points and they are all easily and easily configured.

    Preset selection mode: two user modes, sRGB, Paper, Movie

    You can manually adjust the brightness, contrast and color temperature.

    Select zoom options.

    There is a separate menu for sound settings.

    The power management menu allows you to configure standby mode and Eco-Timer.

    General monitor settings: menu language, logo settings, menu location settings.

    Information item about the current monitor operation mode.

    The Eco button enables energy saving mode and controls the light sensor.

    Sound quality

    The monitor has two speakers built into one watt, the sound quality can be estimated with just one parameter - there is sound. Of course, it is pointless to expect something from such an audio system, nevertheless, Internet radio is played, although without any special quality.

    Image quality

    Brightness - adjustable from 1 to 100 in increments of one unit. Automatic brightness adjustment occurs when the eco mode is on. If the room gets dark, the brightness slowly decreases to a comfortable level. For me, the optimal setting was brightness of 70.

    Contrast - the scale is similar to brightness. A comfortable setting is 65, at this level all the shades are clearly distinguishable, there are no overexposures.

    Color. There are five settings - two custom, sRGB, Paper and Movie. The sRGB setting turned out to be the most adequate (anyone would doubt) - the most pleasant color temperature, but as I said above, I lowered the brightness from 100 to 70.

    Backlight. The EIZO FlexScan EV2436WFS-GY monitor has almost no illumination. After my working ASUS PA238Q, it was very unusual for me to see a black screen without any light.

    Professionally assess the quality of the monitor in this document . Colleagues from Germany did a detailed analysis much better than me.
