[EIZO] New 240Hz EIZO Foris FG2421 Gaming Monitor - Page 84  

post #831 of 889
Provantage surprised me and credited my account for my original shipping cost... which was 40 dollars for 2-day delivery. Erased my annoyance at having the refund take so long. I'd buy 2 more FG2421's but I'm waiting to see how good the ROG Swift is.

I thought I would share this here too in case anyone is interested. Got mine a few weeks ago (to replace a Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 930SB that had just died). Overall it is a great monitor: deep blacks, very good color reproduction, amazing brightness range, almost CRT quality motion blur reduction and a very sleek design. On the negative side, it has the bleeding-like problem on both sides (mostly on the right one) but that's about it. I'm very happy with the purchase.

I took the time to take some photos of the screen to try to show how it looks to the naked eye. I used the custom white balance option of my Sony RX100M2 in a dimly lit room while having the screen show a pure white image. The camera returned a temperature value of 6000K. I used the TFTCentral ICC profile and the following settings for the monitor:

Brightness 100
Black Level 45
Contrast 50
Temperature Off
Gamma 2.0
RGB Gain 100/96/90
Contrast Enh. Off
Color Space RGB Full Range

This is the closest representation of how my screen looks (photos have been scaled down from the originals):

As I said, I'm very happy with it. Oh, and gaming on it with Turbo240 is a pure joy. By the way, if anyone is interested, it was manufactured in Japan on 2013.09.26 (got it from Amazon EU).

Thank you for sharing this great set of pictures N0RVE. Best set I've seen so far for this screen (morkai made some good pictures too).

The "bleeding-like" issue appears clearly on the stripped pattern though I have seen way worse, so your unit seems a "good" one. At least I cannot see the "bleeding" on much of your other pictures, which gives me a better opinion of this screen than what I have had so far.

I see the "bleed" on thoses:
- monster inc (slightly in the stripped part at the upper right)
- rectangular color pattern (gray rectangle at lower right)
- gray shade getgray pattern (one I see the bleed the most after the gray stripped pattern)
- full gray (128 gray ?) screen (black crush is also very apparent on this particular one)
- fairy picture (sides)
- taxi picture (slightly on the stairs)

I'm glad I don't see it on the walt disney one, blue doesn't seem really aftected.


I'm also pleased with your picture of the rose that show that the red are not that bad than some people with terrible photography skills have shown before biggrin.gif
If I compare with the original on my IPS the red of your picture tend to go orange-ish a bit but not that much.

Could you take a picture of this for example:
http://images.oyster.com/photos/lobby-clift-v572953-1152.jpg

I remember someone posted a picture of what seemed to be a redwood bar like this that was terrible (yellow-ish instead of red). Can't put my hands back on it.


Beside this, what catches my attention the most is the hotspot at the center. It is very visible on the W-R-G-B screens and also on many other pictures. Does it look the same with naked eye or the picture just exagerated it ?

And last thing I note is on the zone/geometry pattern (H/V white lines + circles on black background), the vertical lines turn pink on the right side of the image, but that's maybe an artefact due to the picture (I seem to remember I have already seen that elsewhere). Not a big deal though.

Wow, i'm getting this as soon as I get a job. Just tried the Asus VG278HE and the color reproduction was crap. VA panel is truly the best of both worlds. thumb.gif

I just returned my latest purchase - Samsung S27C750P because of how Samsung does business these days. They make these monitors in 2 different places - Mexico and China. Chinese versions have awesome contrast ratio of 4000:1+, but the ones made in Mexico barely make it to 2500:1. Samsung pays BestBuys and other stores to display/show/demo units made in China, but to sell units made in Mexico. In Europe, where this monitor is more expensive, it is sold at a higher price, but only the version made in China is sold. Europe always gets higher quality versions because people there are more quality-oriented, unlike most US customers. Almost all review sites tested the version made in China... This is typical with Samsung VA panel lottery and AFAIK some other companies, which brings me to the important questions:

1. Were did you buy your Eizo Foris FG2421? Japan? Germany?
2. Where was your unit made (should say somewhere on the unit)?
3. Who made it? Sharp?
4. Do you have any obvious light bleeding, checkerboarding effect, or other issues?
5. If you have access to colorimeter - what is your contrast ratio?
6. Are you happy with it?


The reason I am asking is because this panel may be manufactured in different places and that may affect unit quality. There are actually a bunch of bad reports that talk about severe light bleeding (from the right side), obvious checkerboarding, and much lower contrast ratio, with a black point of 0.06 cd/m^2 when white point is set to 120 cd/m^2. I can't be sure of accuracy of those results as they were made with inaccurate equipment, but you never know!

Also, why does this monitor show a very dark blob in vertical bars test? What does that mean anyway? This is the test - http://i.minus.com/iLMtKVb7ecFRV.JPG
post #837 of 889
From my forums readings the dark blob is called "black crush" and would be due to the VA technology. Some users feedback it mades it usuitable for decent photography work.

edit: the dark blob appear when looking perpendiculary to the panel, so it can move to another place depending from where you are watching and at which angle. At a certain amount of angle the dark blob isn't even there anymore.
post #838 of 889
Has anyone here returned theirs due to backlight bleeding??? Where did you buy it? How long ago / When did you buy it? Its like there are so much talk about it, so many people have it, and yet nobody is bothered to answer any questions...
post #839 of 889
Ok, so it appears that Newegg got these in stock again and I decided to try it out. I've received mine today - it is new, the box wasn't damaged, unfortunately it seems to have same issues as others have already mentioned. There's some crosshatching, but it's barely visible and doesn't really bother me during normal usage. What bothers me is the light bleeding - it's noticeable at all corners but mostly at the top right corner. On completely black/dark background there's a very noticeable "blob" of lighter color in that particular area. Which is pretty disappointing - other than uneven backlighting this monitor is really great and much, MUCH better in terms of viewing angles, color reproduction and especially contrast compared to a garbage 120/144hz TN monitors from BenQ/Asus (I used a few of these models, still have the BenQ model). I guess I'll try replacing it first, see how the next one will be - I really don't want to return to garbage TN monitors or to 60Hz-limited IPS variations (yes, I know some can be overclocked but I don't want to experiment with that)...

Just for reference, mine is labeled as "Made in Japan" and has a build date of "2013.11.13".

Wow. Those images O___O -drools-

Interesting monitor, I love the IQ from the stuff people have posted, especially the black level, Hows it compare with like say.. a Dell 2713HM in terms of black level? Or my 2410 for that matter? (My 2410 does pretty well on blacks, At least uniformity wise, They're not perfect but they're much better than my 2407)
