Eizo announces new 240Hz-capable LCD, the DuraVision FDF2405W

Eizo announces a VA panel, 10-bit color, 240Hz-capable display, the DuraVision FDF2405W (TYO:6737)

I'm a huge fan of high refresh rate monitors, with Eizo hitting my radar today with its announcement of the DuraVision FDF2405W display. This new displays cranks out an Anthony-approved 240Hz refresh rate, which is way up and above the 120Hz and 144Hz displays we see on the market.

Eizo does use a trick here though, with the display not actually pumping out 240Hz, but it coverts the 120Hz signals to a higher refresh rate of 240Hz. Eizo says that the conversion process reduces ghosting and blurring, claiming that it "greatly improves sharpness and visibility and reduces eye fatigue that occurs when viewing scrolling or moving images."

 

Eizo's DuraVision FDF2405W runs a peasant resolution of 1920x1080 (PC master race, put your hands up!) but it does feature a VA panel which should give better image quality than the TN-based 120Hz panels we have today. We're also told to expect 10-bit color over DisplayPort and 8-bit when connected through DVI.

 

The Eizo DuraVision FDF2405W features 176-degree viewing angles, and arrives in a small, but obviously capable 23.5 inches. No pricing has been announced just yet.
