AVAST is working on EIZO
More than 250 EIZO LCD monitors were supplied to Avast programmers over the course of the last 3 years. About half of the lot are 24" FORIS and EV models. The other half consists of 27" SX2762 and EV2736W monitors.
EIZO LCD monitors traditionally come with quality LCD panels with a very pleasant anti-glare surface in combination with automatic brightness optimization and flicker-free technology, which allows users to work with the monitors for a longer period of time without any eyes fatigue.
Another favourable criterion is the affordable 27" monitor with an ultra-high 2560x1440 resolution, which is becoming a popular standard for today's programmers. No less important is the low consumption ensured by modern low energetic backlight systems ("white "-LED and "RGB-LED") as well as the high reliability of EIZO monitors that come with a 5-year warranty.
