New ! EIZO CG2420 monitor review  |  September 22, 2016


EIZO CG2420 monitor

New review ! The Eizo CG2420 replace le famous CX241 :

  • Still 1920 x 1200 displaying Adobe RGB 98 (photographers) and DCI-P3 (video makers),
  • but thinner edges: - 0,39 pouce on each side for a tighter multi-screens configuration,
  • "Real" built-in calibration device, as on the CG247 and still with Colornavigator + cap!
