EIZO has introduced two new displays designed for specialized and business environments that require multi-monitor setups. The new FlexScan EV2451 and EV2456 are equipped with ultra-thin bezels for their standout feature, and are IPS panels with 178° viewing angles as well as four display inputs to maximize compatibility.

The FlexScan EV2451 and EV2456 monitors have generally typical specifications for today’s office displays: 1920×1080 and 1920×1200 resolution (respectively), 250 and 350 nits brightness (respectively), a 60 Hz refresh rate and a rated 1000:1 contrast ratio. The monitors can use DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D or D-Sub to connect to host PCs such that they can be used with new and legacy computers. In addition, they support EIZO’s EcoView Optimizer 2 feature, which dynamically adjusts backlight brightness in accordance with environment brightness to reduce power consumption.

The key features of the two monitors are their ultra-thin bezel sizes: 1 mm on the sides and top as well as 4.6 mm on the bottom (keep in mind that that the monitors also have black borders between bezels and screens, hence, we cannot call them completely borderless). Such thin bezels mean that EIZO is aiming these displays for multi-monitor setups used in trading and control rooms. Moreover, such bezels make the FlexScan EV2451 and EV2456 monitors plausible candidates for gamers, who might use multiple monitors to play titles like flight simulators.

To maximize flexibility for multi-display environments, both monitors also use new stands with height-adjustment range of 158.6 mm (EV2456) and 172.7 mm (EV2451) as well as 40° (5° down, 35° up) tilt, 344° swivel, and 90° pivot for viewing in portrait mode. The stands can be easily removed using their quick-release buttons, and the screens can be installed onto a VESA-compatible mounting device. Finally, EIZO also supplies special Screen InStyle software that lets users adjust the color, circadian dimming and power settings on multiple FlexScan displays at once. This includes flicker free modes, blue-light reduction modes, and paper-reading modes.

EIZO plans to start shipments of its new monitors shortly, their prices will naturally vary by country. The predecessor of the FlexScan EV2456 (the EV2455) has an MSRP of $569 in the U.S., whereas the predecessor of the FlexScan EV2451 (the EV2450) costs $399 in the U.S. As for warranty, the FlexScan monitors come with a five-year warranty with a six-month zero bright sub-pixel guarantee.

    Nice score @shabby! I got one for $100 once that had non-working dvi port and was under warranty. HPs workstation line has 3 year overnight service... 1 day after I got it a guy came to my house with a brand new refurb haha.

    the HP elitedisplay is business orientated, but it's in the range of ~$250 or so. Look for E241i and E242.

    My 22" Asus had died on me and I began looking for a new monitor...Lots of cheap 19/22/24/27 16:9, when I came across the U2413 I believe, the predecessor to the U2415, then I read that the new version had been launched, so I sprinted for a U2415... Great 16:10, not very expensive(cost me around 260 euros if I recall right), and I have been using it for about a year now, no problems, no dead pixels. If you want a good 16:10 IPS, get the Dell U2415.

    Ok specs but are we back in 2005 man are those monitors thick for being just released. Are these business class monitors if so I guess that explains why they are so thick being we are in the time frame of everything getting thinner and thinner...lol
  • Murloc - Thursday, October 27, 2016 - link

    you're free to buy thin monitors but some people prefer the thin bezels.
  • rocky12345 - Thursday, October 27, 2016 - link

    Actually I prefer to have both thin bezel and a thin monitor...Which I currently have on my main home system.

    In Ezio's target market the thinness of the bezel is probably secondary to the consistency of the backlighting; and backlighting is more consistent when it's actually backlights (smaller bezels/thicker panels) instead of edge lights (larger bezels/thinner panels)

    24" FHD 60Hz monitor for $569? Seriously? Dell already has slim-bezeled 24" monitor at around $200 AFAIK.
