Ultra-Smooth Gaming with Turbo 240

Experience fluid gameplay free from motion blur with the gaming industry’s first 240 Hz monitor. EIZO’s Turbo 240 converts 120 Hz input signals to 240 Hz for a refresh rate double that of conventional gaming monitors so you can enjoy the smoothest motion display yet for first-person shooter, racing, and other fast-action genres.

Turbo 240 LOGO

Quick Scoping with Extremely Low Input Lag

Input lag, or the time it takes for commands from a keyboard, mouse, or controller to appear on the screen, can be the difference between hitting your target and missing it. EIZO developed its own integrated circuit to ensure your commands appear onscreen without delay.

Download Pro Gamer's Color Preset

Play like the pros with gaming presets from pro gamers such as Counter-Strike legend Patrik “cArn” Sättermon and Dota 2 player Johan “n0tail” Sundstein. Download the "G-Ignition" software to apply these and other presets from the download page or to export your own presets.

Clear Visibility with High-Contrast VA Panel

The FORIS FG2421 uses a new VA (vertical alignment) panel with a native contrast ratio of 5000:1. This is 5 times more than what other gaming monitors offer and increases the visibility in dark scenes so you can spot enemies more quickly.

Easy on the Eyes

Turbo 240 significantly reduces motion blur for clear visibility in FPS and other genres. Disabling Turbo 240 activates produces flicker-free images to reduce eye fatigue. By using the bundled ScreenManager Pro for Gaming to assign a preset mode to each program, you can turn Turbo 240 on and off automatically. For example, when playing a game in FPS mode, Turbo 240 will be activated, but when using your browser in Web mode, Turbo 240 will be deactivated.
