Eizo are a Japanese company that have earned themselves a sterling reputation in the graphics, photography and imaging markets.
While Eizo monitors are not the cheapest option out there, they offer clear quality advantages over other panels that more than compensate for their higher price tag. Unlike, say, Apple Cinema Displays, these screens are not simply re-badged panels from a variety of third party manufacturers that vary wildly in quality and consistency.
Eizo's control of the complete manufacturing process, and strong commitment to quality and testing, is what gives them the their edge over the competition.
Using an Eizo screen, is a real pleasure. Superbly sharp, great viewing angles, and consistent, accurate, and repeatable colour are the key things - they calibrate so easily and accurately, and consistently over time, it's quite remarkable.
When comparing it to other premium priced panels like Dell Ultrasharps or Apple screens, the difference is simply night and day. A lot of the electronics in Eizo screens are specifically devoted to stability and consistency - things largely ignored by other brands but of great importance in professional imaging.
If you're serious about photography or image making, then Eizo screens are well worth the price of admission.
Combined with an accurate, simple monitor calibration system you will find your ability to visualise, accurately soft-proof, and make subtle, precise adjustments to your images is remarkably improved.
We use Eizo screens ourselves, and we will be happy to help you with any set-up and configuration questions you might have. A full range of accessories, such as monitor hoods are also available.
As with all products purchased from Image Science, we are able to
offer lifetime support - so if you have any issues or technical enquires
please feel free to contact us.

Thanks for the quick turn around on the profiles - I just ran the test print and compared against one that I did yesterday morning and it looks great - stronger reds, neutral greys, no yellow cast, better skin tones and shadow detail. Thanks again.
