REVIEW: Eizo Foris FS2332-BK Part 8
Hereafter, we identify the correction matrix used for the X-Rite DTP94 and the present test model. As a reference, the EyeOne Pro is used. We are referring to the actual spectrum of the display, which is why the results are possibly more accurate than with the generic correction in iColor Display. Due to relatively small deviations from one X-Rite DTP94 to another, the lack of averaging by a variety of probes is bearable. Of course, the EyeOne Pro is not an absolutely ideal reference. At present we know of no software that officially supports the integration of individual correction matrices.

Integrated in its cabinet, the Eizo FS2332 provides two speakers. These are located below the display and are mounted in downward direction. According to the manufacturer, they boast a performance of up to 34 watts. In fact, the small speakers make impressive noise, but depths are completely missing and the output sounds tinny. Since due to the size and the lack of a sound body one is unable get out more of the small speakers, which is no surprise. Being mounted at the side of the housing, better sound quality can be achieved fast and comfortable – a good headphone provided.

In PC mode, i.e. when the DVI input is used for the image signal, the Eizo FS2332 offers three page format settings, "Full Picture", "Enlarged" and "Normal", with the latter being a 1:1 reproduction. With the "Enlarged" setting, 16:10 and 4:3 resolutions are displayed fairly correct, and depending on the support, 1:1 display is also possible. The table below lists all resolutions the Eizo FS2332 is able to display pixel-accurate.
Roughly, the following pictures show the interpolation of the Eizo FS2332. The sharpness control (smoothing) is set to the default value of 3.
Native resolution of the Eizo FS2332: 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.
16:10 resolution with the scaling options "Enlarged" (left) and "Normal" (right).
16:9 resolution scaled to full screen (left) and 4:3 resolution shown enlarged (right).
1,280 x 1,024 pixels displayed normal (left) and 1,024 x 768 pixels enlarged (right).
The Eizo FS2332 is able to display the following resolutions with pixel accuracy:
1,920 x 1,080 (native)
The interpolation performance of the Eizo FS2332 is tested based on a scene taken from the 3rd person shooter "Dead Space". This game takes into account the aspect ratio of a certain resolution and accordingly reduces the player’s field of view. So it is not down to the monitor if the image display is clipped depending on the resolution.

1,360 x 768 pixels scaled to full screen (left) and 1,280 x 1,024 pixels displayed "Enlarged".
Since the Eizo FS2332 is able to reproduce a number of resolutions 1:1, interpolated display can be avoided in games. Especially with 16:10 resolutions, pixel-accurate representation is always recommended since the display is slightly distorted otherwise. In the "Enlarged" setting, 4:3 resolutions, however, can also be displayed interpolated in pretty neat quality. Altogether, the Eizo FS2332 provides a good interpolation performance.
