5 Years Warranty
EIZO stands behind the workmanship of this FORIS model with an industry-leading five year warranty.
Full HD Resolution
The 1920 x 1080 native resolution displays pixel-by-pixel all the content of full high-definition video sources such as Blu-ray discs and many of today's games without any black bars across the top and bottom of the screen.
HDMI, DVI-D, and D-Sub Inputs
Dual HDMI inputs are included for full HD connectivity with audio-visual devices such as gaming consoles, Blu-ray disc players, and TV tuners. DVI-D and D-Sub inputs allow connection to PCs with digital and analog graphics boards respectively.

10,000 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
A ContrastEnhancer adjusts the brightness, gain, and gamma of images to their ideal levels in real time. The resulting dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1 ensures the monitor consistently produces deep blacks and vivid colors with moving images.

Clearer and Sharper Images for Gaming
Game mode activates two EIZO features called “Power Resolution” and “Power Gamma.” Power Resolution makes the details in both low and high resolution games look clearer and sharper. Power Gamma applies a gamma curve to games and other animated images that amplifies the feeling of contrast to make them look more three dimensional. Other features that optimize the monitor’s performance for gaming are a gray-to-gray response time of just 7 ms and an input lag of less than one frame.

Paper Mode That Simulates Printed Paper
Designed to reduce eyestrain when reading documents or ebooks, Paper mode simulates the look of printed paper by raising the black level and lowering the contrast ratio.
Preset Modes for Optimum Viewing
In addition to Paper mode, several other preset modes are also available: Cinema, sRGB, Game, and two User modes for user-adjustable settings. Toggling between modes is done manually in the OSD menu or automatically by assigning a mode to a particular application with the bundled ScreenManager Pro for LCD software (Windows 7 and Vista compatible).
Simple Color Matching with EIZO EasyPIX
The EIZO EasyPIX color matching tool is ideal for digital SLR camera users looking to match colors between their monitors and photo prints. With the EasyPIX software you can match the monitor’s color and brightness with that of the photo paper and then create a monitor profile with the bundled EX1 color sensor. No expertise in color management is required and the profile can be shared with image retouching software to ensure accurate results when printing.
New Cabinet Design
The FORIS FS2331 debuts a new cabinet design that features a long, narrow imprint that runs from side to side across the lower front bezel. The imprint is for affixing a red, gray, or blue color stripe so users can personalize the appearance of their monitor. The color stripes are included.
Included with the FS2331 is a card-style remote control which offers full control of the OSD menu plus one-touch access to screen size, volume, and PC/HDMI input selection.
Dual internal 0.5-watt speakers give the FS2331 audio capability. Headphone jacks are also included.
In addition to the dot-by-dot display, overscan display, which eliminates extraneous data around the edges of the screen, is also available in the OSD menu.
Two functions ensures stable brightness which is necessary for the proper display of color. The first is drift correction circuit that quickly stabilizes the brightness level after startup or coming out of power saving mode. The second is an ambient brightness sensor called "Auto EcoView" that detects changes in the ambient brightness and signals the backlight to adjust the screen brightness accordingly so it is never too dark or too bright.
Energy Efficiency Gauge
A user-activated EcoView Index displays the level of power savings and equivalent amount of CO2 reduction compared to using the monitor without Auto EcoView activated and with the screen set at a brightness of 100%.

10-Bit Gamma Correction
This technology ensures smooth, accurate color tones by converting the 8-bit PC data to 10-bit, assigning the ideal gamma values, then returning the data to 8-bit format for display.
A five-year warranty offers a long service life, and compliance with leading industry standards such as TCO Display 5.1 and TUV Ergonomics ensures a better working environment.
