Eizo Slims Bezels for Multi-Monitor Set-Ups

Eizo has released a new Flexscan monitor, with edge-to-edge glass that is flush with the narrow bezels (outer: 1mm, inner: 5.5mm), for a fully flat surface. The monitor cabinet is 48.5mm deep.

Picture-in- and picture-by-picture modes are supportedThe unit is called the EV2750: it is a 27″ monitor with an IPS panel and ergonomic stand. It is capable of -5° to 35° tilt, 344° swivel, 90° pivot and 155mm height adjustment.

A hybrid dimming technology enables flicker-free viewing, even at low brightness levels. Supporting use in dim environments, the EV2750 can be dimmed to 1 cd/m². Eizo’s Ecoview technologies are built in, helping to save power. These include an ambient brightness sensor and ‘Ecoview Optimiser 2’, which lowers backlight brightness and increases gain when mostly dark content is displayed.

Users can adjust colour and Ecoview settings with the mouse and keyboard, rather than the OSD. There are five preset modes, one of which (Paper) also lowers blue light output. Eizo supplies the monitor with its five-year warranty, and guarantees it against bright pixels for six months.

The EV2750 has 2560 x 1440 resolution, 178° viewing angles, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 5ms (grey-to-grey) response time. Brightness is 350 cd/m². DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D, USB 3.0 (x2) and USB-B ports are built in, as well as two 1W speakers.

Eizo will begin selling the EV2750 in Europe in mid-October.

Analyst Comment

The slim bezels obviously lend themselves to multi-monitor arrangements, and moving the monitor settings to control via a keyboard and mouse is also a good move in this regard. I have talked before about the difficulties in where to place the physical control buttons for a monitor that is used side-by-side with others; on the side means that the monitors need to be moved (and is less practical with thin bezels), the back is out of reach, and placing buttons on the front spoils the monitor’s minimalist design.
