and loaded with features, Eizo Nanao's FlexScan
L768 is designed for use in demanding environments.
Its well-organized on-screen display includes
such advanced settings as gain control and gamma
control, which few competitors offer. The bundled
ScreenManager Pro software lets users select
from five Fine Contrast modes, which optimize
settings for different tasks: text, still images,
movies, color matching (sRGB mode), and one
user-configurable default setting. Though the
on-screen menu is simple to use, the control
buttons on the bezel have somewhat confusing
labels. We'd have preferred actual words to
the buttons' letters and cryptic symbols. Our
jury found no serious flaws in the L768's consistently
excellent image quality; the monitor earned
a rating of Very Good in both graphics and text.
The FlexScan L768 employs a full range
of physical adjustments--tilt, height,
pivot, and swivel--and other practical
design elements, such as a clip-shut
cable cover to cut down on desk mess.
The 0.5-inch bezel--the thinnest we've
seen lately--can be less distracting for
users with dual-monitor setups. A USB
2.0 port is another useful touch. Last
but not least for a monitor that's such
an investment, we found the
documentation thorough and accessible.
The Eizo Nanao FlexScan
L768 provides advanced options for
pros--but at a premium price.
