Ah, people actually still use 4:3 aspect ration monitors ? EIZO Corporation today announced the release of one 21.3-inch and two 19-inch square monitors. The 21.3-inch monitor is the FlexScan S2133 and the 19-inch monitors are the FlexScan S1923 and FlexScan S1903. All three monitors come with LED backlights and other energy-saving features making them ideal for large and small offices that require a traditional square design. With its large screen size, the FlexScan S2133 is also suitable for control rooms and CAD (computer-aided design).
All three monitors have LED backlights for low power consumption of 16 watts or less during typical operation and just 0.5 watts in power save mode. They are also easy on the eyes. An ambient brightness sensor called Auto EcoView and a preset mode called Paper mode lower the monitors' brightness and color temperature respectively to reduce the blue light output which can cause eye fatigue.
Several other presets including sRGB and Custom (user-defined settings) modes are available with all models. The user can toggle between modes manually in the OSD menu or automatically by using the bundled ScreenManager Pro for LCD software (Windows 8, 7 and Vista compatible) to assign a mode to each application.
These models comply with stringent international standards for power consumption, the environment, and ergonomics like EPEAT Gold, Energy Star 6.0, and TCO Certified Displays 6.0. All models come with a five-year manufacturer's warranty*. This is two years longer than the three-year warranty of most monitor brands and contribute to a low total cost of ownership.

21.3-inch screen with 1600 x 1200 native resolution (4:3 aspect ratio).
