Although we spend the majority of our days staring blankly at one the computer monitor is one area that we give little thought to. However, as camera resolutions climb for both video and still many of our screens are woefully under resolution.
EIZO’s latest CS monitor is the EIZO ColorEdge CS2740, which forms part of the prosumer, hobbyist range. As with the CG series designed for professionals it offers a range of features that are designed to ensure the colours and tones of the images that you see are correct.
This latest monitor aims to be a bit of a jack of all trades with a resolution and colour profile that will suit videographers, photographers and designers equally.
As ever this EIZO monitor offers visual screen quality with simple colour management, a stable display, user-friendly design and a familiar interface for many professionals.
The big features for this monitor are the 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160 16:9 Aspect Ratio, 164ppi) and Adobe RGB: 99%.
These two specifications are core to today’s imaging creatives and when you match in the selection of input terminals that include USB Type-C, Display port, HDMI alongside USB 3.1 Upstream and two downstream it’s obvious that this monitor supplies everything that you could need.
The EIZO ColorEdge CS2740 is aimed at prosumers and hobbiests, a 4K UHD resolution and supporting 99% Adobe RGB makes it ideal for both video and stills.
While EIZO monitors are expensive the CS range brings the price in line with competitors such as the BenQ SW271.
