EIZO CS2740 Overview

By B&H Photo's

Designed for those who need a detail-oriented, comfortable, and creative workflow for creative fields that include photography, video editing, or design, the ColorEdge CS2740 26.9" 16:9 Wide Gamut 4K IPS Monitor from EIZO gives you everything you need to keep your imagination flowing. It delivers a UHD 4K resolution, a 26.9" diagonal viewing area, and USB Type-C connectivity. So that the ColorEdge CS2740 may be calibrated to your preferred settings, an external EX4 calibration sensor is available as a separate purchase.

EIZO designed the ColorEdge CS2740 with an anti-glare panel, a native resolution of 3840 x 21600, In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, 10-bit support for 1.07 billion colors, a 16-bit LUT, a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a static contrast ratio of 1000:1, 350 cd/m2 brightness, 164 pixels per inch, and a 10 ms (GtG) response time. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. This display has one HDMI input and one DisplayPort input. There is also a USB Type-C port that supports DP alt mode, data transfers of up to 5 Gb/s using the USB 3.1 Gen 1 standard, and up to 60W of power for device charging. Additional USB ports include one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-B input, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A outputs with 0.9A of charging power per port, and two USB 2.0 Type-A outputs with 0.5A of charging power per port.

The ColorEdge CS2740 has been engineered to support 99% of the Adobe RGB and 103% of the NTSC color gamuts. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, it features a vertical tilt of -5 to 35°, a left/right swivel of 344° (±172°), a clockwise rotation of 90°, and a height adjustment of 6.1".

General Features

4K UHD Resolution

The ColorEdge CS2740 is the first CS series monitor to implement 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160), which is four times the size of Full HD. This ensures that high resolution photos and other content are displayed crisply. The 27-inch screen provides ample space for easily displaying Full HD content in full with enough space to show toolbars, palettes, and other windows or applications simultaneously. This makes the monitor versatile for photos, video editing, design, and other types of creative work up to 4K.

High Pixel Density for Smooth Display

A conventional monitor displays in Full HD with just 96 ppi. The ColorEdge CS2740 has a pixel density nearly twice that at 164 ppi for 4K image display that has never looked smoother. Alphanumeric characters and contours are distinguished with greater sharpness, so you can check even the finest details without needing to zoom in.

Single Cable Connection with USB Type-C

The ColorEdge CS2740 features USB Type-C connectivity with 60W of power delivery. With a single USB Type-C cable, you can display video, transmit USB signals, and supply power to a connected device such as a smartphone or notebook PC. Simply plug in and get creative without worrying about additional cable clutter.

ColorNavigator 7 Software

ColorNavigator 7 is a calibration and quality control software for ColorEdge color management monitors that combines all the features of EIZO's previous color management software, ColorNavigator 6 and ColorNavigator NX, to create a new and improved solution for creatives in a range of fields. The proprietary software performs hardware calibration by directly utilizing the LUT (look-up-table) of the monitor for higher precision and better gradation characteristics compared to software calibration.

Quick Color Match Software

Even with all the right equipment, color matching can be a tedious process - from monitor adjustment to determining the proper retouch software and printer settings - achieving an accurate print takes a great deal of time. Quick Color Match greatly simplifies the process by automatically adjusting to the most appropriate monitor, retouching software, and printer settings, so you can focus on editing your photos and print your work quickly and hassle-free. Simply drag and drop your photo in the Quick Color Match window to automatically start the process.

Vivid Colors Reproduced to Industry Standards

The wide color gamut reproduces almost the entire Adobe RGB color space, so images shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed correctly. Photos of vibrant blue skies and lush green forests are reproduced faithfully in a way that monitors limited to an sRGB color space cannot display. The wide color gamut also ensures reproduction of almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK color spaces used in printing.

10-Bit Simultaneous Display

Using the DisplayPort or HDMI inputs, the monitor offers 10-bit simultaneous display from a 16-bit look-up-table (LUT) which means it can show more than one billion colors simultaneously. This is 64 times more colors than you get with 8-bit display, resulting in smooth color gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colors.

HDR Gamma Support

EIZO offers optional HLG and PQ curves for the ColorEdge CS2740 as an upgrade. The optimized gamma curves render images to appear truer to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR.

Adjusted at the Factory for Smooth Color Gradations

The gamma level for each ColorEdge monitor is adjusted at the factory by measuring the R, G, and B gamma values from 0 - 255, then using the monitor's 16-bit look-up-table (LUT) to select the most appropriate tones and achieve the desired value. This helps ensure the smoothest color gradations in your images.

Uniformity Across the Screen

LCD monitors commonly exhibit fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity across the screen, affecting color accuracy. To counter this, ColorEdge monitors are equipped with EIZO's patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology which corrects deviations in every tone across the screen to help ensure a stable display.

Seamless Electrostatic Switches

The flat design uses electrostatic switches on the front bezel in place of traditional buttons for seamless access to monitor setting.

Built-In Carrying Handle

A carrying handle on the back of the monitor allows you to easily move it from one location to another.

Minimized Reflections with Non-Glare Panel

The monitor is equipped with an IPS non-glare panel for high visibility. It also uses dimming technology to minimize flicker and help prevent eye fatigue for a more comfortable working environment.

I/P Conversion for Flicker-Free Display

The HDMI input supports I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion for converting the interlace signals from TV and video into progressive signals for flicker-free display.

Wide Viewing Angles with IPS Panel

The 178° wide viewing angles afforded by the IPS panel technology allow two or more people to view the screen at once with little change in color or contrast.

Optional Light-Shielding Hood

An optional light-shielding hood is available that effectively prevents glare on the monitor's screen caused by ambient lighting. The hood attaches to the monitor magnetically, allowing users to setup quickly and easily without needing to connect separate parts.

Ergonomic Stand for Comfort and Convenience

Adjust the screen to the most comfortable angle and reposition it to show your work to a colleague or client. The monitor comes with a versatile stand that offers height, tilt, and swivel adjustments as well as portrait display. The stand is also equipped with a quick release that allows you to easily remove the screen from the stand with one touch.

Multiple Inputs

The ColorEdge CS2740 is equipped with HDMI and DisplayPort inputs. In addition to USB Type-C, it also has a USB Type-B and four USB Type-A ports.

Limited 5-Year Warranty

ColorEdge monitors are backed by a manufacturer's 5-year warranty that covers all components, including the LCD panel.

Zero Bright Pixels

EIZO guarantees its ColorEdge monitors will be free from bright sub-pixels for six months from the date of purchase.

EIZO CS2740 Reviews

Retouchers, this is what you're looking for

If you do high-end retouching and color matching, this is the tool you are looking for. Seems like everyone else has come out with pro monitors in the last few years. You might like the features or the promises they have to deliver. But there's only one thing that matters here, and that's the crazy-high level of screen quality these Eizo's have to offer. 5-year warrantee to back it up. You know what must be done, get the Eizo.

This Monitor Is a Revelation

Great Monitor! This is one of the few tech products I have purchased where the product actually exceeded even the makers' Marketing. The design is simple, the build quality quite good. The screen itself is fantastic. Edge to edge sharpness and illumination levels as close to perfect as I have ever seen. It is also very easy on your eyes. Long editing sessions won't leave you nearly as eye tired. I had often wondered, using my old setup, why my photographs were not as sharp as I thought they should be. My printer (a Canon Pixma Pro-100) delivered sharper prints than the photos seemed to be as they appeared on my monitor. The CS2740 has shown me that the images were actually very sharp, the monitor just couldn't display at that level. There are some things that might be less than optimum for some users. Type can be very small as can some controls in programs like Photoshop. For me, as a Mac user, this has been little or no problem. I cannot speak to how it may affect users of other computers. The Mac allows me to enlarge (or reduce) typefaces, interfaces and window sizes. That lets me easily enlarge type where the need for it is critical. The payoff though, for image makers of all kinds, is that you will see and work with your images with new found detail, incredible color rendition and much easier match to prints and printed media of all kinds. It doesn't hurt that B&H sells the Eizo at a very good price either.

Excellent Monitor

Great monitor, I have it setup with my iMac 5K as my proofing monitor. A couple of things to be aware of: 1. When you rotate to portrait mode you must switch first in the MacOS and then rotate and when going back to landscape mode you must change it first in MacOS. I thought the monitor automatically did this. 2. To rotate to portrait mode using the included stand, you have to tilt the monitor out and then rotate otherwise you will hit the corner. Its a little nerve racking. 3. I bought the ergotron LX monitor arm, make sure to get the tall pole otherwise if you only need the main arm and not the extension arm you will need to tilt it out the same way with the built in monitor stand. 4. The front power switch is just like a sleep mode, the iMac will think the monitor is still on and display things on it. If you use the power switch under the monitor by the power plug, the iMac will see it as no monitor attached. I am so glad I got this monitor. You can see a big difference between this and the iMac 5K Retina.

So far, so good

I have had the monitor for a couple weeks to replace a 10 year old Dell 25. Major difference in colors, even with the color temperature the same. Another major reason for me to upgrade, as I couldn't trust the old Dell anymore for correct colors. Thought about getting a BenQ, but wanted something reliable long term. I will be using the EIZO for photo editing. I used the X-Rite i1Display Pro with EIZO's color navigator software to check calibration. Didn't appear to change much from the factory calibration. The monitor does give off alot of heat. Make sure work space is well ventilated. Also got the hood accessory. As expensive as this monitor is, they should just include the hood with it. Can't use the new style hood while calibrating though, no slot. They recommended turning off any overhead lighting prior to calibration to lessen ambient lighting. Called tech support prior to doing the calibration since I had a two monitor setup, I didn't have to be on hold very long, and they were very helpful. If you have a two monitor setup, make sure the EIZO is the primary monitor (windows setup).

Perfect monitor for professional photographers.

I first bought the Benq SW321c and had some issues with the calibration software that came with it: Pallete Master Element. Out of frustration with the Benq I also purchased the Eizo CS2740. Side by side i did get the Benq calibrated after several attempts and it does match the Eizo pretty good. Why I decided to go with the Eizo? Side by side with the Eizo, the Eizo just looked more true and correct, the Benq does not have a great contrast ratio and seemed to have the slightest blue tint compared to the Eizo. Also was not in love with the Pallete Master Element software, and I seem to not be alone with that feeling. Eizo is just the leader when it comes to monitors for Photographers. I loved the 32in size of the Benq but the Pixel Density was hard to get used to vs a retina screen of an iMac. The Eizo pixel density since its a 27in seemed right at home next to my imac. If you are a photographer and want to stop playing around and KNOW you have accurate color just get an Eizo.

I'm a seasoned national ad shooter. Do most of my own post work and composites. Very educated on color management workflows. It was time to upgrade to 4K to handle motion editing. This is the monitor. Do not be fooled by resolution specs - many of the 4k's out there can't do Adobe 98. This does. There are presets for sRGB = rec 709 for motion editing. When I calibrated this using my i1, was able to get it exactly 6500. The accuracy is astounding. I waited 4 months... totally worth it.

Excellent monitor and profiling software

By Bruce M.

The Eizo CS2740 wide gamut 4K monitor is an excellent choice for photo editing. Its gamut is stated to be 99% of Adobe RGB (1998), which is ideal for photo editing. The monitor calibration is done with Eizo's ColorNavigator 7 software, which I believe is available for any Eizo CS monitor whether you purchase the EX4 calibration device or not. I did. It appears to be manufactured by Datacolor in that it looks very much like their Spyder X. In fact, the Spyder X is listed in the software manual in a fashion that leads me to believe the two are essentially identical. Quite a few other measurement devices are compatible to ColorNavigator 7, based on the manual. The manual recommends that calibration be performed with the monitor resolution set to 3840x2160. This is the resolution that I use for photo editing. However, it's very easy to change the resolution to 2560x1440 after calibration. I find this setting to b easier on my eyes when working with text. Changing between the two resolutions does not affect the calibration. The monitor and the hood, which is purchased separately, appear to be very well made. Some reviewers have remarked about the plastic construction, but I fail to see this as an issue. Returning to ColorNavigator 7, the software is easy to use. Its manual is 102 pages long. I recommend looking at some of the videos on Eizo's website instead of reading the manual to get up and running quickly. You can use the manual as a reference when you want more details. I replaced an aging NEC PA271W with this Eizo. I was happy with my NEC monitor and SpectraView II, but Sharp/NEC seem to have departed the wide gamut monitor business. ColorNavigator 7 is more powerful than SpectraView II. Knowing this now, I think I would recommend the Eizo monitor over the NEC even if NEC did come out with a new wide gamut display.
