Eizo FlexScan S2242W LCD

 

The 22″ Eizo FlexScan S2242W LCD features a high native resolution of 1920×1200 usually found on larger sized monitors.

This is a very good all-around monitor, but depending on your needs the 22″ size might be a limiting factor for graphics professionals.—Steve Baczewski

Eizo FlexScan S2242W

 

In essence Eizo has shoehorned a 24in monitor into a 22in shell

1920x1200 resolution, price

Pixel density can make it less ergonomic to use than larger monitors

To create the Eizo FlexScan S2242W, Eizo has trimmed one of its superlative monitors to nearly the bare minimum — but the core product is good, and offers good value for money if you need outstanding image quality.

Eizo FlexScan S2242W review

 

In essence Eizo has shoehorned a 24in monitor into a 22in shell, allowing the company to add a relatively reasonable price. Eizo says that it can also save you up to 10 percent of desk space - but price is the main reason to purchase the Eizo FlexScan...

Eizo FlexScan S2242W review

 

The Eizo FlexScan S2242W has a few small flaws, but none where it really matters.

Other features include a two-port USB hub and a pair of 0.5W speakers, which are built into the display's case. However, don't be distracted by these peripheral features. What's most important is the display performance, and this is very good. As we've...

Eizo S2242W

 

Eizo has always used a very conservative design and S2242W is no exception. It has got a narrower frame and a more discreetly stand but that doesn't change the fact that the monitor is very deep and bulky.

We use the DVI input for testing. The graphic card is Geforce 7900GTO.

Eizo FlexScan S2242W review

 

Get the best aspects of a 24 inch display within a 22 inch shell with the FlexScan S2242W from Eizo.

Excellent value for money, high-end controls

No Mac software or provided profiles, basic looks

To create the FlexScan S2242W, Eizo has trimmed a monitor to its bare minimum – but the core product is good, and offers great value for money.

EIZO FlexScan S2242W

 

Japan-based EIZO is synonymous with producing high quality LCD TFT monitors that are just the ticket for design professionals. Sure they look like 80's throwbacks thanks to their boring design and chunky bezels, and they lack the connectivity and...

The S2242W is one of very few 22-inch monitors to offer a 1920×1200 native resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. Thanks to its 0.247mm pixel pitch and display of 103 pixels per inch, this results in around 30% more information displayed compared to a...

With everyone watching their budget at the moment, including creative professionals who need a high-quality screen, the arrival of the Eizo FlexScan S2242W is timely.

Eizo FlexScan S2242W

 

Eizo's monitor range is well-respected among those looking for more accurate colour than that delivered by most LCD monitors, so we were keen to put the company's new 22in FlexScan S2242W through its paces

However, don't be distracted by these peripheral features. What's most important is the display performance, and this is very good. As we've noted already, if quality isn't a main concern, you can get a 22in screen for a lot less than this one, but...
