Eizo EV2456 review: classic format with a new look

The best option for those who can't keep up


Brightness and contrast

In terms of base characteristics, the Eizo EV2456 does well in terms of maximum brightness, as its 360 cd/m2 is very high and comparable to that of the Samsung C24FG70 ( a gaming monitor that reportedly is also very popular on the business market).

We see something special here with the minimum brightness of white, we only measured 0.35 cd/m2 - Eizo is capable of setting the brightness very accurately and therefore reduce it to a very low level. Working on this display in a dark area will be just fine. This level of control over the brightness can easily be called unique.

If we set the display at 150 cd/m2, we measure a black value of 0.18 cd/m2, which is not exceptionally dark. At maximum brightness the black value is also relatively high.

The mediocre black value is reflected in the contrast, which is around 850:1 depending on our measurement method and testing pattern. It's a fine result and likely the price that Eizo pays for the calibration - but we'll take a deeper look at this on the following pages. The difference between 800:1 and 1000:1 is not really visible, however the relatively high black value is.
