REVIEW: Eizo Foris FS2332-BK Part 11
A typical Eizo model, the appearance of the Foris FS2332 is an edged and austere one. Also very characteristic is the quality of workmanship. The plastic housing provides high-grade look and feel, no cracking or crunching. Equipped with a variety of interfaces including two HDMI inputs, the connectivity options of the Eizo FS2332 are very flexible.
Being the biggest difference to the predecessor model, the 23-inch IPS panel provides for superior image quality. By default, grey axis and contrast are very good, and the Eizo FS2332 offers two individually adjustable user picture modes. Extensive OSD settings and high-quality electronics with 10-bit LUT ensure a very good calibration result, and the passing of the UGRA certification punctuates the potential of the Eizo Foris. Considering this result, the FS2332 is ideal for ambitious digital image processing in an sRGB workflow. The uniform brightness distribution with average deviation of only 3.2 per cent is also very positive. Here, the Eizo FS2332 has significantly improved, compared to the previous model.
Although not drastically, image build-up and input lag have also improved. The IPS panel offers a good basis, and if Eizo finds a way of optimizing the overdrive circuit, the FS2332 is not far from a monitor that has it all. What is really annoying – but easily to fix – is the fact that the Eizo FS2332 has no option to change the position of the OSD. Since it always appears centred on the screen, it gives users a hard time measuring and profiling.
The major point of criticism is once again the lack of ergonomic features like height adjustment, above all. For many users, a fixed installation altitude of 10 centimetres is not enough.
The Eizo FS2332 is available for a street price of around 500 Euros. The offered quality speaks for itself, cost and performance are consistent.
Overall Rating: VERY GOOD
