"My first EIZO monitor was the ColorEdge CG220, their first Adobe RGB Gamut monitor. Shortly thereafter we bought the ColorEdge CG221, the first Adobe RGB monitor with digital equalisation uniformity. 12 years on, we still use this on our main profiling workstation where we create the highest quality profiles for people’s printing, pre-press and camera calibrations.
I still trust that monitor with my life, and it has been on that workstation for 12 years. Unlike the newer ColorEdge monitors, I have to physically calibrate it and it is still within specification!
Today we also use CG277s, CG248x for video, and we are in the process of adding CG319x."

“I tend to invest more in my production monitors than my computers because the monitor is the window to my creative world. I don't hold nack when it comes to the quality of my images, no matter where they are displayed.”
