Eizo FlexScan T2351W-LThe Eizo FLexScan T2351W-L is a well-designed touch screen monitor, that prices itself out of most users' grasp.
With the enormous popularity of tablets these days, we weren't too surprise when Eizo sent over the FLexScan T2351W-L. It's a 23-inch monitor with multitouch touchscreen functionality. What that means in this case is that the fingertip takes a place of what would be your cursor allows you to highlight text to have shortcuts. There is a software keyboard here as well. Tapping and then holding down gives you right click options and the multitouch feature allows you to alter the size of your browser at will. Well, Eizo has done its best with the touchscreen feature. The monitor still being used with and OS that was designed for mouse. So, if you're using windows the size of your fingers or least your fingertips can cause a problem as you attempt to tap certain smaller options. Now, if you're using a touchscreen while it's in a vertical position, it sounds like a pretty strenuous work out for shoulders that's because it is. Luckily, Eizo features a 65 degree back tilt, which in the position makes using the screen less conducive to lactic acid buildup. Beyond that, the FLexScan is well made with a reinforced glass screen and vertical alignment panel, which affords a wide viewing angles and a deep black level. Movies and games looked good with well balanced color and nice deep blacks, although the cinema preset despite it's name, it's not conducive to movie watching. Luckily, the sRGB is there to save the day. The monitor includes HDMI, DVI, and VGA connections as well an USB upstream connection, which is a required connection for the touchscreen functionality. The FLexScan is a well performing, well-built monitor with a unique touchscreen feature will not perfect in its execution, has its usage. The problem is cost. At over $1000, you have to ask is that amount of money worth it for 23-inch screen, probably not for most. However, for those willing to shell out the money for such a well made, well performing monitor, and are really excited on touch screens is probably worth looking into. Check out my full review for more details. I'm Eric Franklin, and this has been a first look at the Eizo FLexScan T2351W-L.
