Eizo EV2456 review: classic format with a new look

The best option for those who can't keep up

Uniformity

Eizo offers uniformity correction on its more expensive monitors, the EV2456 does not feature it as it's only a 'simple office model'. This does not mean that its uniformity is bad however, as we measured fine to excellent values.

This is also the case for the individual measurement at 15 different points on the screen. The variations are pretty much all too small to see with the naked eye.

Bear in mind that the colour in the boxes with the uniformity of black, white and the contrast is related to the results of the measurements for that model; not to the absolute values.

  • As far as black goes, the lower the measured value, the better (=greener); if the value is higher this means worse (=redder).
  • For white the colour coding is different, because there we set a specific brightness of 150 cd/m². That is why values that are closer to this setting green, values that are further away become red – the more they deviate the redder they are.
  • As far as contrast is concerned, the highest contrast is green, the lowest is red – the values in between are marked by these colours. Greener is better, redder is worse. We emphasize again that these values are relative: a contrast of 1702:1 is excellent, but if the highest measured contrast is 2581:1, the former value is still marked in red.
  • With the colour temperature the measurements are bluer the lower they are, yellower the higher they are.
  • Last but not least the colour deviation: here you see a number for the DeltaE value in the boxes, where values below three are barely noticeable with the naked eye. The colour of the boxes shows the colour deviation of gray.
