Eizo Rolls Out New Monitors Eizo has released two 19-inch square monitors, the FlexScan S1923 and FlexScan S1903, ideal for large and small offices that require a traditional square design. Both monitors have LED backlights for low power consumption of 16 watts or less during typical operation and 0.5 watts in powersave mode. An ambient brightness sensor and a preset mode lower the brightness and color temperature to reduce blue-light output that can cause eye fatigue. The FlexScan S1923 and S1903 include a 19-inch screen with 1280x1024 native resolution (5:4 aspect ratio). They boast compatibility with older graphics boards that output a sync-on-green signal. The S1923 is priced at $499, and the S1903 costs $299. 4 ■ CGW Sep tem ber / O c t ober 2013 HP Grows Z Workstation Portfolio HP has expanded its Z portfolio of professional workstation and display products.
