Eizo, a leading producer of professional and consumer displays, has unveiled a rather extravagant square display with 1920*1920 resolution. The Eizo FlexScan EV2730Q monitor is intended for CAD/CAM/DCC/finance and other professionals, sports a number of professional features and is among the first square displays with 26.5” diagonal on the market.
Eizo’s FlexScan EV2730Q monitor is based on a 1920*1920 IPS panel with LED backlighting, 300cd/m2 brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time, 60Hz refresh rate and 178°/178° (H/V) viewing angles. To lower eyestrain, the monitor features anti-glare coating and utilizes Eizo’s proprietary technology that regulates brightness to make flicker unperceivable. In addition, the wide dimming range allows the monitor to be adjusted to just 1% of maximum brightness for higher comfort in dimly-lit work environments.
The FlexScan EV2730Q from Eizo is by no means a display for gamers or multimedia enthusiasts, but if you are a professional who needs a lot of vertical workspace (for CAD, CAM, DCC, finance, development or other applications) on your screen, this is a monitor just for you. In fact, the EV2730Q is among the first square displays with 26.5” diagonal and high-definition resolution on the market, which is why it will likely get rather popular.
The EV2730Q display sports one dual-link DVD-D and one DisplayPort input. It has built-on two-port USB hub, two 1W speakers as well as 3.5mm stereo jack audio input.
The FlexScan EV2730Q will be available from the first quarter of 2015. Pricing of the Eizo FlexScan EV2730Q is unknown, but it will not be affordable, given the positioning of the display. The monitor comes with 5-year warranty, which is a good thing.

KitGuru Says: Like many other professional devices, Eizo’s FlexScan EV2730Q generally sacrifices many consumer-oriented things in favour of comfortable work in select applications. Would you guys buy one of such displays if you needed to more efficiently work in certain programs?
