Page 1: Reviewed: Eizo Foris FS2735
Since its debut at Gamescom, the Eizo Foris FS2735 became one of the most anticipated gaming monitors. With our sample arriving just before Christmas, let’s find out what this 144 Hz FreeSync monitor is capable off out of the Japanese manufacturer.
The holiday seasons brought with it two high-end gaming monitors, the ASUS ROG Swift PG2790Q and the Acer Predator X34. While the former can convince with a very high refresh rate of 165 Hz, the latter offers a large 34” curved screen with 100 Hz refresh rate. Those wanting something new from Eizo had to wait. Well the wait is up, let’s see just what Eizo brings to the table.
Here, Eizo chooses a path that is more reminiscent of ASUS over Acer. It has paired the IPS panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 that doesn’t place the same kind of pressure that’s seen on those 27” and 32” 3440 x 1400 screens. One of the big highlights for the new Eizo model comes in the maximum 144 Hz refresh rate to help create an extra smooth gaming experience. Combined with this, we’ve also got AMD FreeSync support. Simultaneously, another ace up Eizo’s sleeve comes in the ability to control the monitor via a smartphone.
In terms of pricing, it should come as no surprise that it sits in the upper segment. While we don’t have a US price, the 1,099 euro price point is clearly on the high-end side of things. Outside of what you hope is the typical Eizo quality, a 5 year guarantee is offered with onsite exchange.
