If in the market for a new gaming monitor, Eizo’s latest is just begging to be considered. At the forefront, the FORIS FG2421 boasts a 240Hz refresh rate – not the world’s first, but it is the first on a gaming-specific monitor that I’ve been able to find. Past that, the implementation of a VA (vertically aligned) panel helps deliver a native contrast ratio of 5000:1, resulting in some fantastic color ranges and increasing the visibility in darker scenes.
Past that, one thing that sets this monitor apart from most others for gaming are presets that can be downloaded to tailor it for specific games – even some pro gamers have contributed their efforts here.
Other key specs: 400cd/m2, 176° viewing angle, less than a 1ms response time, DisplayPort, DVI-D, HDMI, and dual USB ports (we’d assume 2.0 given the lack of blue color). Given everything the monitor boasts, it’s nice to see that its max power draw is 53W – not too shabby.
Once available for sale, the FG2421 will retail for about $699 USD, which includes a 5-year warranty.
