EIZO FlexScan EV2451 & EV2456 Launched: Thin Bezels in 16:9 and 16:10


EIZO FlexScan EV2451 & EV2456 Launched: Thin Bezels in 16:9 and 16:10

EIZO has introduced two new displays designed for specialized and business environments that require multi-monitor setups. The new FlexScan EV2451 and EV2456 are equipped with ultra-thin bezels for their standout feature, and are IPS panels with 178° viewing angles as well as four display inputs to maximize compatibility.

The FlexScan EV2451 and EV2456 monitors have generally typical specifications for today’s office displays: 1920×1080 and 1920×1200 resolution (respectively), 250 and 350 nits brightness (respectively), a 60 Hz refresh rate and a rated 1000:1 contrast ratio. The monitors can use DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D or D-Sub to connect to host PCs such that they can be used with new and legacy computers. In addition, they support EIZO’s EcoView Optimizer 2 feature, which dynamically adjusts backlight brightness in accordance with environment brightness to reduce power consumption.

The key features of the two monitors are their ultra-thin bezel sizes: 1 mm on the sides and top as well as 4.6 mm on the bottom (keep in mind that that the monitors also have black borders between bezels and screens, hence, we cannot call them completely borderless). Such thin bezels mean that EIZO is aiming these displays for multi-monitor setups used in trading and control rooms. Moreover, such bezels make the FlexScan EV2451 and EV2456 monitors plausible candidates for gamers, who might use multiple monitors to play titles like flight simulators.

To maximize flexibility for multi-display environments, both monitors also use new stands with height-adjustment range of 158.6 mm (EV2456) and 172.7 mm (EV2451) as well as 40° (5° down, 35° up) tilt, 344° swivel, and 90° pivot for viewing in portrait mode. The stands can be easily removed using their quick-release buttons, and the screens can be installed onto a VESA-compatible mounting device. Finally, EIZO also supplies special Screen InStyle software that lets users adjust the color, circadian dimming and power settings on multiple FlexScan displays at once. This includes flicker free modes, blue-light reduction modes, and paper-reading modes.

EIZO plans to start shipments of its new monitors shortly, their prices will naturally vary by country. The predecessor of the FlexScan EV2456 (the EV2455) has an MSRP of $569 in the U.S., whereas the predecessor of the FlexScan EV2451 (the EV2450) costs $399 in the U.S. As for warranty, the FlexScan monitors come with a five-year warranty with a six-month zero bright sub-pixel guarantee.

  1. Picked up an hp zr30w for $100 recently, look through craigslist locally.

  2. I'm viewing this on a U2415 right now, and can confirm it's a fantastic monitor! (and cheap for what it is, IMO)

  3. I've got one of those at work because it was the highest resolution supported by the USB3 docking stations they're using. It's a beautiful display and my only regret is that it makes my other monitor (a generic 22″ 1080p TN on a non-adjustable garbage stand) look like the piece of crap that it is.

  4. Tbh from personal experience with increasing size the need for :10 vertical ratio is quite diminishing… I'd badly miss it on 21/22″ but don't miss it at all on 27″…

  5. Still rocking 3x U2412M here, the display market keeps shifting so much that ideal replacements keep lapping each other just over the horizon… At this point I think I'd rather have a much larger 4K panel but even then I'm not sure there's a near ideal choice.

  6. +1 to all of this. I have the predecessor Dell to that model, and it's great. And, I too wish I had a 16:10 upgrade path available aside from prosumer options. I even ponder a Korean 30″ import with all the associated hassles since it's one of the few >24″ 16:10 options out there.

  7. Why aren't there any consumer grade 16:10 monitors??? I'd buy this if it was closer to $200-250. But 400-500? I just can't justify that for 1080×1200. Maybe the Surface Studio can spark interest in large 3:2 high res displays. Maybe…

  8. And what do they taste like? I hope they don't leave that awful metallic and plastic taste in your mouth like most of other monitors I've tried.
