Eizo has announced the upcoming release of the ColorEdge CS2740, a 27″ 4K monitor with USB-C connectivity. The CS2740 monitor is a successor to Eizo’s ColorEdge CS2730 that increases the resolution, adds new connectivity options and now offers 10-bit input.

The updated monitor features a 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels, 164 ppi) resolution (compared to the 2560 x 1440 pixel, 109 ppi resolution of the CS2730), new backlight uniformity technology and 10-bit color support (over HDMI) for computers capable of outputting 10-bit images. It also features a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 10ms response time, a max brightness of 350 cd/m2, a 178-degree viewing angle and >99% Adobe RGB gamut coverage.

On the connection front, Eizo has swapped the DVI-D port found on the CS2730 for a USB-C port, as well as swapped one of the USB-B ports for two USB Type-A ports. In addition to transferring the image to the CS2740 over USB-C, the USB-C port also supports 60W power delivery so laptops can both transfer the image and charge at the same time. This not only saves time, but also cleans up how many cables you’ll need when using the CS2740 as an external display with a laptop.
Eizo claims the CS2740 can be calibrated in just 90 seconds when using its ColorNavigator 7 software with a compatible calibration system. Additional accessories available alongside the CS2740 include a blackout hood and a dedicated calibration sensor. Eizo offers five-year warranty for the CS2740 (or up to 30,000 hours of use).
Currently, there’s no pricing information available for the CS2740, but the product page notes the product will officially be available starting October 24, 2019, so we should know more within the week.
