Eizo ColorEdge CG243W review


Despite issues with the hood and the screen rotation, the ColorEdge CG243W is still an impressive display.

The on-screen display is simpler to use than we've experienced in many monitors, although it still requires the push-button dance between different hierarchical control levels. As well as switching between a number of preset colour spaces, we noted one...

Eizo ColorEdge CG243W review


Boasting an impressive colour gamut, 16-bit colour and a DisplayPort input the Eizo ColorEdge CG243W has much to offer.

Very high-quality output, DisplayPort output for future-proofing, less expensive than other vendors’ flagship 24in displays, simple menu system and software

Not quite as good as some rivals

While the price puts the CG243W out of the reach of many potential buyers, if you can justify the high cost – but can’t quite stretch to HP’s pimped-out DreamColor LP2480zx – it’s an excellent choice.

Eizo ColorEdge CG243W


If you don't care about your screen then anything will do. But those working in any of the creative industries know the importance of a good, colour-accurate display... and a large one, too

The CG243W was so new as we went to press that few places had it in stock, those that did priced it at around 1200 - substantial, but not unreasonable for a product of this caliber. If Eizo could only sort out the slightly sloppy rotation issues and...
