Realistic cons are to expect some weird cross hatching effects with the coating and the edges glow on certain colours. There is also some gamma shift but it’s better than any TN 120Hz monitor. Just turn the brightness down when your gaming as some of the greys and browns can look a bit washed out. I was tempted to return mine but after two weeks you just get used to these niggles.
It’s not perfect but on balance its probably the best 120Hz monitor out there. Colours are good enough if you’re not a professional user, 240Hz turbo mode smokes anything I have seen when it comes to motion clarity on a LCD panel and you get a 5 year warranty with Eizo.
I just bought the FG2421 as well. I tested all colours in the store (b,r,g + black background) and it seemed to be excellent. No backlight bleeding at all and uniformity seemed to be OK in the light conditions of the store. Once I fired up Battlefield 4 at home I noticed a very strong glow from the right side on dark (greyish) scenes.
My sample seems to be horrible in dark greyish scenes. Anyone else with this problem? Is this normal? The odd thing is that black is completely black on right edges and this only happens with grey. I am returning it today but I am afraid a 2nd unit will have this problem as well. Please not that this is not the input bug from Displayport to DVI. I had this bug and was able to get out of it.On the link below you will find two pictures, scroll down to see the second picture as well.
Looking forward to your comments and opinions.
Settings during screenshot:
Brightness: 52 (lowering to 18 did not help enough to keep this unit!)
Black level: 50
240hz on/off did not help.Edited by JCRoq - 11/24/13 at 3:04am
