We are an exclusive CG line Eizo dealer and have done extensive testing
with the CG220, CG210, and the CE240W. They are all excellent montiors. The
CG 210 and 220 use RGB panel that employs Super IPS (In-Plane switching). This is currently the best way to design an RGB panel as the viewing angle
is very wide...170 degrees...which means for soft proofing the operator, and well as a group of people can all look at exactly the same image on the
The new CE240W uses a PVA (Vertical aligment) RGB panel. Its less expensive to make, and therefore the monitor cost less. The accurate viewing angle of the CE240W is quite a bit less than either of the CG units. Its an excellent
monitor, but would not be my reccomendation for soft proofing in a fine art
printing enviroment. Eizo recently announced teh new CG221, replacing the CG220. Therefore, there are deals to be had on remaing CG220's, and the new
CG221 has improvements that may benfit you...so more choices!
I think before you jump into any new monitor you should consider a few things:
1) What will I really be using this montior for?
2) How long will I own it?
3) If its really accurate, how much will it increase my productivity?
If you have any other questions, feel free to email me on or off list.

My old CRT just died and I am considering the ColorEdge CE240W. I like this
monitor's size, the 5 yr warranty and the native software that supports the
I do fine arts printing for myself and other artists: much of my time is
spent color matching/soft-proofing and correcting images.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
I would love to have a CG220, but I will probably wait until ARBG monitors
become somewhat more affordable.
