The Foris FS2434 is a superbly built monitor with tiny bezels, great image quality and software making it perfect for multi-monitor setups


We were underwhelmed by the FS2434’s built-in speakers. We had high hopes for them initially because they face the user and even have holes machined into the bezel. However, a quick blast of Jay Z and a few minutes of Wolfenstein: The New Order proved that these tweeters are cheap and tinny and should be avoided at all costs. It’s a shame, and does harm its credibility as a multimedia monitor. If you want a multimedia monitor with good speakers, you should look at the four-star AOC i2473PWY.

Pure IPS displays are a rarity among gaming monitors, with the technology currently incompatible with refresh rates beyond 60Hz. Instead, expensive gaming monitors use IPS-like AHVA panels. The FS2434 uses a 23.8in standard 60Hz IPS panel for accurate colour reproduction, deep blacks and high contrast levels. In our calibration tests, the monitor was able to produce 92.8 per cent of the sRGB colour gamut. Colour reproduction was good, as expected, with most colours attaining delta-E figures, where lower scores are better, of between 2 and 5.. Contrast levels weren’t quite as high as we were expecting at 883:1, and black levels were a little higher than expected at 0.26cd/m2.

Overall image quality is still great, though, meaning high-quality photographs and high-resolution video look superb. There are some alternative preset colour modes made for gaming but, as expected, they merely give games a harsh, blown-out and unpleasant quality. They make in-game objects easier to see, but we can’t imagine anyone would truly enjoy an atmospheric horror or story-driven game with these settings turned on. We stuck with the default sRGB colour settings for our testing. There were no issues with input lag or response times and we’d be confident that most gamers would be happy with its performance.

Overall, the Foris FS2434 is a pretty and keenly priced gaming monitor. While twitchy gamers will want to look elsewhere at something like the 144Hz Iiyama ProLite GB2488HSU-B1, those who want high quality images or a multi-monitor setup can’t go wrong with the Eizo.
