For years Eizos have been the professional's choice because they offered more flexible gamut mapping and transformation capabilities versus (for example) the WUXI/WQXI series. This series of screens with wide gamut panels could not properly emulate sRGB limiting their appeal. I know because I have an LCD2690WUXI-BK which is wide gamut and has an absolutely horrid sRGB mode. Unusable would be the most accurate description.

The PA series now equals those capabilities for a lower price and fixes the two biggest problems the W*XI series had, limited back-light regulation which could not go dark enough, and the improper gamut transform capabilities.

I can see that.

What about the difference between wide-gamut and standard?

From what I understand, the Eizo CG245W will do standard using the DVI port but will change to wide-gamut if using DisplayPort? Either that or I just couldn't figure out why they listed two.

I assume the PA241W is only wide-gamut? Which begs me to ask if that's the only difference between the newer P241W?

What about backlight bleeding on either the Eizo or the NEC?

Sorry for the stupid questions...I guess I'm one of those prosumers you referred to and I don't want to waste money where I can't!

Let me ask this question too...lets say you had $10,000 to spend on a monitor and the rest would get burned. Which would you personally buy and for what reason?

I'm about to pull the trigger on the PA241W-SV for photography/browsing/gaming (mostly RPGs (DOTA)) to brother my U2410. Can someone convince me otherwise? Or give me some other options? Should I look at the 30' instead due to the pixels-per-inch? Should I really start reconsidering the Eizo (I think it's incredibly ugly...)? I think the Eizo charges so much for the built in calibration and because before the PA series, as 10e said, nothing else could compete with it.

GAH SOMEONE DISCOURAGE ME BEFORE I BUY AND HAVE REMORSE!

Anyone? Please? Today's the day.

I'll either be spending $2800 on an Eizo or $1300 on an NEC.

HELP!

PA241W-BK-SV. You want 30" go for the PA301W, but I don't particularly recommend it. 30" panels being so large do not measure up to the quality of 24" in some ways. I have the PA301W and wish I had gotten the PA241W outside of the extra resolution/PPI.

You want max PPI, there is the PA271W as well, but the anti-glare will be very sparkly and strong.

The Wuxi series also supported internal calibration, but the wide gamut versions had issues with sRGB, that was the only advantage Eizo had back then.

Thanks for your help, 10e.

I'm thinking I will order me a PA241W tomorrow.

Can anyone confirm if the Eizo CG245W as mentioned works in both wide-gamut and standard mode?
