Eizo reveals 30-inch, ultra-high res LCD

updated 03:10 pm EDT, Wed October 17, 2007

Eizo 2569x1600 LCD monitor

Display specialist Eizo has announced a new, extremely high-resolution LCD monitor, the SX3031W-H. Sized at 30 inches, it is capable of resolutions up to 2560x1600, well surpassing the 1080p limit of most screens. Part of the purpose of this is to support its dual DVI-D inputs, which allow the monitor to display two different video sources side-by-side, at resolutions up to 1200x1600 each. Eizo further claims that the LCD covers the whole of the NTSC color range, with a brightness of 260cd/m2, and a contrast ratio of 900:1.

Tradeoffs come in the form of a 12ms response time, and a lack of any analog inputs. Two USB 2.0 ports expand peripheral connections. Eizo will be shipping the 3031W-H to Japan on December 19th, at a price of 298,000 yen ($2,555); foreign release plans are unknown, but Eizo has previously brought products to North America.

    WOW!

    Holy cow, a monitor that can do exactly what the Apple 30" monitor has done for 2 years! Incredible engineering!!! How did they manage to get the exact same resolution?

    ultra-high res LCD

    In fact, I was hoping to see something like 1.5 or double the resolution of current 30" LCDs by upping the pixel density.

    i have

    I have twin 23-inch Cinema Displays at work and I love 'em. I was originally considering a single 30" display but opted for the dual-monitor setup that I have now because it's really convenient to maintain two distinct work areas. I guess it's good to see more companies offering jumbo LCDs, even if the specs are no better than the Apple version (competition is good for consumers, and all that...).

    looks good to me

    I'll be looking seriously at this. I have a 24" Eizo because they had no 30" available earlier. The difference between Apple and Eizo monitors is pretty significant. I've used both quite often. I have a 17" Dell for palettes next to my Eizo. I wouldn't mind a single 30" Eizo. The specs will far surpass Apple if history teaches. As with most things, you get what you pay for.

    Eizo=Good

    $2500, which is $500 cheaper than when I purchased my Apple 30" Cinema, $1000 cheaper if you consider I'm currently paying $500 to have it fixed at this very moment because of the massive ghosting and inconsistent backlight problems I've been having with it since it was a year old. Also note that Eizo's have a 5 year warranty, 4 years longer than Apple's.

    That monitor is a steal at the price, and I plan on buying at least one.
