The low end monitor market – and by this I mean low end monitors in the context of colour accurate work, not really low end consumer rubbish like Apple, Dell, BenQ etc. put out – has been a bit in flux lately with the loss of NEC’s great little and very affordable P221W model, and no really comparable replacement from NEC so far. This has meant monitors in the sub $1000 market have all been – to be frank – a bit crap for colour work…but Eizo has actually had a surprisingly good but kind of well hidden option available, and the recently upgraded 2012 model is actually a real bargain.
The problem is, it’s been hidden by some pretty awful marketing – or at
least, misdirected marketing. It’s been pitched heavily as a gaming
monitor – but some of the attributes that make it good for gaming also
of course make it good for imaging work, both still and video. So let
us introduce you to the very pretty and very useful FS2333:
Here is why we think they are a really good option for imaging professionals on a budget:
As a special introductory offer and exclusive to Image Science, we have 5 of these going super cheap. They are technically ‘ex-demo’ – they were lightly used on an Eizo trade stand for just one weekend but have been audited by Eizo and re-packed and are entirely as new, and come with the full warranty. Normally $855 and excellent value even at that price, these 5 are just $655 and there is absolutely nothing that can touch them at a similar price. (EDIT: This promotion has now ended, but we currently have new stock at an even BETTER price of $560.)
First in best dressed! Please phone your order through on (03) 9329 4522
(Oh – and if you do do some gaming – they’re is nothing better, frankly – these are the monitors the pro-gamers use!).
Image Science have been very easy to deal with, more than happy to help someone who previously knew nothing about how any of this worked! I knew what I wanted to achieve but no idea how to make it happen but had literally a million questions that were answered for me and was guided through how to make my plan a reality. I’m very happy with the result!
