Summary: I am a 'computer-gamer'. With it's extremely low lag/latency/fast refresh rate, yet very high picture quality, this FG2421 is the best monitor for gaming, IMHO... (my son and I play 'Battlefield 4', among other PC games).
Excerpt: The 120Hz Sharp MVA panel is rather impressive. Panel is 8bit + FRC which is more or less useful or useless depending on what you do. 120Hz and the 240Hz motion blur reduction works nicely but still introduces the "PWM" issue so I don't use it much. Having problem with PWM and it being PWM free for a wide range of brightness bar the lower range which uses a high frequency PWM which doesn't pose a problem with me is great. OSD is relatively simple to use.
Summary: I used this for about 3 months then went to 1440p OC monitor. Every time I walk into her play room where she uses this for FFXIV I'm mesmerized by it. Fantastic monitor if you get a good unit. Some bad QC.
Summary: I'm a long time refresh rate addict. I tried the 120Hz TNs as soon as they were available. I've gone through a few high end CRTs. Until now the CRTs were my favorites in spite of their aging problems and low-res for high-refresh. I can't praise the FG2421's picture quality enough. In contrast, black level and motion it's unparalleled among PC monitors, period. Colors are also a major step up from TNs.
Excerpt: Beautiful monitor...very nice both in its form factor and in the picture it produces. The contrast is outstanding. It ships VERY bright (brightness 100) and needs to be turned down substantially right off the bat to be useable. I know a lot of people report issues with crosshatching, dead pixels, VA color gradient, etc...but mine is nearly perfect, to my eyes.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great contrast, Great Osd, Powerful, Very Nice Colors
Cons: Slight Color Bleed, Some Colors Hard To Read
Excerpt: I've had a lot of these on my table, but the best one came from B&H, no lie. They are all a little flawed in some way or another, but it's better than having to ask how much the industrial version costs. Eizo makes extremely high end professional monitors and, as such, one can imagine there is a bit of a compromise to purchasing a gaming monitor from Eizo that is being made from failed panels for a $6,000 display.
Pros: Best Gaming Color, Best Gaming Contrast, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Powerful
Excellent monitor if you'll get lucky... Unfortunately I wasn't

Summary: This is a great monitor for gaming purposes, perhaps the best one there is - it supports native 120 Hz refresh rate for less motion artifacts (less "blur") and for decreasing issues with traditional V-sync implementation in various games, it also allows you to enable optional "Turbo 240 Hz" mode for even more fluid motion, which gives you almost "CRT display"-like display smoothness (with a minor drawback of slightly increased input lag/delay, which is not really...
Excerpt: I picked this product out because I wanted a high (100+Hz) monitor to go along side my large IPS monitors. A TN panel wasn't an option, side by side the quality difference was jarring. The Eizo provided a very high quality image that fit in the setup extremely well. I highly recommend it for anyone who has needs for both high response and good color.
Summary: Stellar image quality combined with a strobing backlight and associated motion clarity. Pro's: 1. Amazing brightness adjustability. 2. Overall motion clarity is great. 3. Semi-gloss AR film. 4. Strobing backlight built it, no messing with certain GPU brands, drivers, fixes/work-around's. It just works! 5. Great bonus features you only find on high end monitors. 6. Blacks and contrast ratios off the chart. 7. Great quality control seen in my three examples.
