Review of the new Eizo Flexscan SX2762W monitor, with an impressive resolution and adjustable viewing angles

Pros: Image quality, colour accuracy, build-quality, resolut
Cons: High cost

There are a wide variety of monitors out there to suit a range of budgets and disciplines, but if you're serious about digital imaging, either as a high-end enthusiast or professional, then a specialist colour accurate display is a must. These can come with a hefty price tag, and while the FlexScan SX2762W monitor from Eizo costs more than many desktop PCs - you could even buy a 21in iMac and still have change, this is one of their more affordable colour-accurate displays.

The FlexScan SX2762W is a 27in monitor with an very impressive resolution of 2,560 x 1440 pixels and displays 97% of Adobe RGB colour space - something more affordable monitors won't do, while the full gamut of colours in sRGB mode can be displayed accurately.

If you've got a graphics card that's supports 10-bit output, then you'll be able to take advantage of the SX2762W's 10-bit simultaneous display - 1 billion colours are shown simultaneously compared to 16.7 million colours of a typical 8-bit display. In the real world, this means smoother colour graduations.

The monitor can be positioned to suit a wide range of viewing angles - it has a 152mm height adjustment, 25° tilt, 344° swivel and 90° rotation if you want to used the monitor in portrait format.

Straight out of the box and the display is first-rate and delivers excellent image quality. Images are clear with a smooth tonal graduation, while colour accuracy is spot-on. The SX2762W offers hardware calibration (you calibrate the monitor rather than your computers graphics card), but this requires an additional investment in Eizo's EasyPIX hardware calibration kit.

As a high-quality colour-accurate monitor, its hard to fault - the display is excellent. However, this does come at a price. If your workflow demands a very accurate colour display, then this large investment makes sense, but there are more affordable alternatives out there if you're not going to be using it on a professional level.
