Eizo Nanao FlexScan T765

The Good Multiple connectivity options; four-port USB hub; cool add-on speakers; sophisticated calibration software.

The Bad Expensive; mediocre image quality; clumsy onscreen-display navigation.

The Bottom Line If this display were dirt cheap, it would be a great deal. However, its extra features just don't make up for a high price tag and lackluster image quality.

Eizo Nanao FlexScan T765

Eizo's jumbo-sized, 19-inch FlexScan T765 is much like its sibling, the 17-inch FlexScan T565. It has an identical look, many of the same features and extras--including sophisticated calibration controls and add-on speakers--and a commensurately high price. It does offer a couple of things that the T565 doesn't, such as extra screen space and a USB hub. But unfortunately, bigger does not equal better when it comes to image quality, especially when you can buy a 19-inch display with comparable performance, such as the Samsung SyncMaster 950b or the ViewSonic P95f+, for about half the price.Eizo's jumbo-sized, 19-inch FlexScan T765 is much like its sibling, the 17-inch FlexScan T565.

Land the white whale
You'll need a friend to help you unpack the 60.7-pound, $689 FlexScan T765, but once this behemoth is on your desk, setting it up is easy. The box doesn't contain a quick-start poster, but the manual is quite comprehensive, beginning with a detailed setup diagram, a description of how to understand and navigate the onscreen display (OSD), and a lengthy troubleshooting section.

The monitor itself has a glare-reducing flat screen with a 17.8-inch viewable area, four USB ports, and both VGA and BNC inputs on the back so that you can connect two computers to the display. The FlexScan sports a tight, .24mm dot pitch at the center of the screen and .25mm at its edges. The display can support a maximum resolution of 1,600x1,200 at a flicker-free 92Hz refresh rate, but the manual recommends a resolution of 1,280x1,024 at up to 107Hz. The T765 is compatible with both PCs and Macs.
