adam, from what i underastand, they know that they will last a lot longer than 5 years, no problem, but even with calibration and whatnot, they will eventually shift or lose something that won't display the true color that it was originally capable of doing.
I hope mine can squeeze at least 3 years in My crt did the same thing, after a while it couldn't calibrate because there wasn't enough blue...glad to get rid of that boat!

Re: New EIZO 30"

They do last a lot longer than 5 years. Becasue of the way they lock in the calibration, they self adjust to aging quite nicely.
Adam I havev had minde for 3 years and have seen NO signs of drifiting etc.

My wife just ok'd my getting a Canon Mark DSIII. Maybe she'll let me get this one to.

I'm guessing it'll be around 2800 to 3200.

Chris

A solid investment I'm glad you talked me into the Eizo's I just saw a cinema at the store and the brightness was very uneven with a 50% gray wallpaper and one had a circular darkish spot...not good for $800! The $1700 for the CE is hard to bite but money well spent. Almost went for the CG series but I just had brain surgery so they money is a little tight now...but hey now I can upgrade to the 30"

Re: New EIZO 30"

chris, is eizo dropping in price to corner the market or something?

i noticed that the new 24" was around 2k something.....why is the CG221 like 5K?? what makes that model much more?

Re: New EIZO 30"

The new 24 is not a cg monitor?

My guess is that they are trying to avoid Barco's mistake by over priciing and letting the masses get their hands on one.

Could be wrong. I don't really have any idea what their angle is. Just guess work.

Re: New EIZO 30"

the 24 is CG.

i'm just curious what the difference is between these new larger (CG) models and the flagship CG221 the price difference is huge.

The 24 CG series doesnt have the gamut that cg221, the 22" has a full adobe rgb gamut range while the 24" cg has around 96%. I ended up buying the CE series coloredge 24", it doesnt have a wide field of view, but is a lot cheaper, hopefully the gamut is close to the cg series.

Re: New EIZO 30"

i use the Eizo ColorEdge 21, very sharp and clean, a little off in color on the left side but not near as bad as the Apple 23". We compared the LaCie, Apple and Eizo, plus just tested the Samsung 20" very nice.

Re: New EIZO 30"

I've worked on a CG210 for some time now and it's the only monitor that, to my eyes bests, my Lacie (crt) at the home office. I will be replacing my Lacie within the next year - definitely going Eizo, 30" would be nice. Screw palette monitors.
