My thoughts on the EIZO FS2333
Posted 2013-07-17 Miniraser
I received my EIZO monitor and the first thing I noticed was, that it was packaged very well, practically bulletproof! When you’re unpacking the monitor, it might seem like it’s going to be a bit confusing but the setup was extremely easy. The instructions are clear and everything went together without a hitch.
With gaming, people usually build their computers around the PC itself however the monitor plays a huge role in your experience. Straight off the bat it was clear that the EIZO FS2333 was a cut above the rest. Everything from the resolution, the size, the ability to customise the height and angle of the monitor was perfect.
Once I got everything setup the way I wanted it I moved straight onto the gaming. It feels like a different game once you load it up for the first time. Every single detail is clean and visible. At the very start of the game when most of the map is undiscovered some details are extremely hard to see on regular monitors but the Smart Insight feature allowed those details to be clear on the screen. This might seem minor to some players but for me, scouting early on is crucial to my build so being able to see everything and exactly where I’m sending my scouting drone is one of the best things about this monitor.
Although the EIZO FS2333 is marketed towards gaming, the monitor’s picture quality is unmatched with anything I’ve seen before. Watching streams, movies, or even browsing the internet you’ll find yourself in awe at the quality of the screen. The monitor also has an eco-profile. This will allow the monitor to adjust itself to your surroundings. So depending on your lighting it will change the settings without decreasing the performance in anyway. I found this addition to the monitor to be extremely helpful, as a gamer I’m at my computer for extended periods of time each and every day. The lighting on most monitors does take it’s toll on you, but with the FS2333 sitting at the computer for long periods of time my eyes didn’t feel strained at all.
If you’re like me and you like to have your monitor sitting perfectly but also have the option move it around and change it. The FS2333 offers a lot of options that you’ll love. The most important part of the monitor in my opinion is the ability to change the height. When going into an event you don’t know how the screens will be setup. So it’s important to have the ability to adjust the height at home so you’re ready for anything you encounter at an event.
All in all, the monitor shines above every other monitor I’ve used. At home and at events. The price tag may seem quite steep but in all honesty you will get your moneys worth out of the EIZO FS2333. There’s a reason why all of the gamers you see at DreamHack and such love using the FS233. Even if you’re not gaming this monitor is a solid investment and one you won’t regret!
