[EIZO] New 240Hz EIZO Foris FG2421 Gaming Monitor - Page 80  

post #791 of 889
Vega, I was a step ahead of you and Mark R sent me the same test (although it was the Quebec City image) and with Turbo240 on.....it was much better, and I was even able to read the little numbers flying by on the red objects.

Here is my thoughts after playing on it for 3 days

My very qualitative review of the monitor was that it is, without question, much better than the Asus VG248QE with respect to color, blacks (and therefore contrast), viewing angle, you name it. I returned it for the following reasons: first the input lag difference (and im sure many will argue you can't tell difference) is palpable. I would play alternating rounds of BF4 on the Eizo and the Asus and it was definitely costing me frags.

I hate to be the bearer of any sort of bad sceptical news but I've figured out why I wasn't "wowed" by Turbo240 and Chuckinbeast pretty much summed it up in his above quote. Firstly, this is the best gaming monitor I have ever seen in terms of what has already been discussed (blacks, color, contrast) and that is without me even changing to any suggested color recommendations yet! I particularly noticed in my razer mouse drivers how incredible the glowing green colors were, similar to one of Vegas pics he posted earlier. And it really does look incredible in game. However, I will leave picture quality reviews to the pros in this thread since that isn't my forte.

What I DO have a boat load of experience with is fast twitch games and input lag since 1998. In Turbo240 mode I noticed motion blur was reduced on fast turns, etc. and things looked more CRT like, but I just wasn't hitting well in Quakelive. Moving from the 2233rz up to the Eizo I thought, maybe it was the increase to a 24 inch display that was taking me getting used to. So here is what I did to figure out what the issue was:

First, I went back to the 2233rz and instantly started hitting consistently again and moving much better in game. It just felt very responsive to my mouse movements. Then I went back to the Eizo/240, and motion clarity was better, but I started missing, etc. again. So I tried turning Turbo240 mode off and running with 120hz on its own and sure enough I started hitting/playing a little more like my old 2233rz self. I know Turbo240 adds more input lag (even more so than lightboost, which I have yet to try) so I had to compare with it off.

I also dug up my trusty Viewsonic CRT from the basement and hooked that up. Sure enough, I've been crushing people on for the last several hours and am hitting rediculous shots. If I had to compare the blur reduction of Turbo240 mode with the crt, I'd say its damn near identical, which is great news! But the input lag on the Eizo/240 is absolutely unplayable for me in such a fast game (and I have a fast play style myself) like the quake series. I can just tell on the Eizo with my movements, things feel sluggish and a little "behind". Playing on a 38 ping server feels more like a 60+ ping server although the clarity in motion is there.

I know people have different sensitivities to this, and in many games it won't be an issue I'm sure. But even if I could have the reasonable input lag of the 2233rz matched up with the Eizo perks....I'd be a very happy camper.

I think I'm going to play on the CRT for a few days because of how unreal the motion clarity and non existent input lag feels.

In summary, I can't use this monitor for my particular gaming purposes due to it's input lag. If you are not particularly sensitive to it, or maybe you won't even notice it much at all in the games some of you guys play.....if you get a good panel, you are going to love this thing I'm sure!

Here's a few photo's of my TEMPORARY triple monitor set-up. Hopefully my Freedom stand will arrive in a couple of weeks, so I can't wait to debezel these bad boys and mount em properly AKA Vega Stylee!!! LOL wink.gif














The only downside to having a surround set-up is that web browsing is not as good as a single screen was:-

IMG_0357.jpg

I even got CoD Ghosts to run in surround without any adjustments at all too!!!






Having a surround set-up totally transforms PC gaming and I will never switch back to a single screen now. These monitors are amazing and soooooooooooo worth every penny!!! smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

Look's great Cyber. This 3x Eizo setup is the best in the world for overall gaming IMO. thumb.gif For desktop use though, I break out my trusty 24" 4K.

Thanks Vega - Yeah these EIZO's are the best screens for caressing ones eyeballs by delivering max eye candy. And a 24" 4K monitor just for web browsing? How the other half lives!!! LOL wink.gif

So does the Jedi master have any tips for the young apprentice on how to debezel these bad boys please??? wink.gifwink.gif

These are a little bit more rough to disassemble versus some other displays. They have a lot of wires that you need to disconnect before you separate the panel from the PCB/chassis. Just be careful in there as the connections are quite fragile!

OK Thanks, how have you configured the on-board switches? Have you remounted them to the bottom of the panel? As it looks like you have relocated them from your pics? Would you mind posting a close-up shot or two please??? wink.gif

If you look at my screenshots above, you can see the three LED's for the power indicator on the bottom left of the monitors. It's really easy with some double sided tape, you can pretty much mount them wherever you want within reach of the ribbon cable.

The only downside to having a surround set-up is that web browsing is not as good as a single screen was:-

Does image quality get better because of the higher res? Or is it the same as one 1080 but bigger, because PPI remains the same??

These companies are all in collusion.

 

I bought a 27" Dell, 6 years ago for $799 (On sale). In that span of time, these companies have done ZERO with the quality of output for end users.

 

Why are they not perfecting latencies, input lag and hardware? Why buy their crap all over again, because now it's 4K..? Or, pay for a premium, for an ultra-small 24" gaming monitor..   that has incredible amounts of input lag? Why are they not advancing & making 27", or 30", with new tech, that allows for CRT quality input..? And CRT quality output. 

 

 

Gamers don't watch their monitors, they use them. No amount of motion blur means anything, if it doesn't listen to your commands instantly... , but lags behind you..

 

 

 

I suggest the FG2421 is not a gaming monitor, because it doesn't respect our own input.
