The staff here at ePHOTOzine towers have been using EIZO CG276 27 inch monitors for a year now. Here, you can find out more about how they've found working with the monitors, the benefits of using them compared to other monitors and features of the monitors that are particularly useful.
"The EIZO monitor we use is really large, making it great when working with lots of windows open," says Emma Kay, Features Writer. "When it comes to choosing the Photo of the Week, accurate colour reproduction really helps, helping you distinguish a great photo from an average one. The size of the screen is great for viewing images, too as photos look even more stunning on a large screen."
Nikita Morris, Content Manager, is a fan of the built-in calibration equipment. "My EIZO monitor can automatically calibrate itself, so I don't have to worry about remembering to do it," says Nikita. "Plus, the size of the monitor means I don't have to work with two screens as I can work quite comfortably split screen with no problems. Images can look dull or over saturated on other monitors - the EIZO makes sure you view them as they should be seen, with the right colour reproduction."
Joshua Waller, Technical Editor, likes the quality of colour reproduction on his EIZO. "As the Techinal Editor in charge of reviews on ePHOTOzine, it's important to have accurate colour for evaluating and assessing both colour and image quality produced by cameras we review. It's also essential to have the full greyscale range from black to white for product photography."
"We do a lot about multi-tasking in our job, so we need to use a lot of open windows, and the size of the EIZO monitor is a plus," says David Burleson, IT Manager. "I do a lot of proofing of code and the size is handy there too. When it comes to designing and graphic work, the monitor has the ability to swivel, meaning I can share work with colleagues easily. When working on newsletters, the ability to turn the monitor to a portrait orientation is handy for seeing the whole thing without having to scroll."
"You can set the monitor to self-calibrate at a certain time every week, ensuring your colours stay accurate," says Rick Hanson, Web Developer. "There's lots of space for testing the responsiveness of the website on the screen, too."
