    Used Eizo recommendations?

    I want to upgrade to an Eizo, and I'd like to go used to save some cost if possible. Any model recommendations or models that have issues I should avoid? I don't need a ton of screen real-estate as I keep my tool palettes on a second monitor. My main requirement is being able to get a good profile at low cd/m2 values (~80); while Adobe RGB gamut coverage would be nice it's not a requirement.

    I bought this one used 2 years ago for only $470 . about 1/3 of new as I recall.
    It had 350 hours
    Now it has 9300 hours and I understand it should last till about 16000 Hrs.
    The lamps are replaceable too, but I suppose I would upgrade to another used one if the lamps go down.
    It is so much better on the eyes than the other monitors here, that I use it daily in text mode as my main office monitor and switch to sRGB for photos.

    If you have ColorNavigator installed, you can open that and choose Help > Monitor information to get the number of hours.

    What happens to old Eizo's is that their backlight gets gradually dimmer. So it makes sense to look for one that can still hit a reasonably high maximum brightness. I remember that the CG222W's had a fairly low max brightness when new (238 cd/m2) - so I'd watch out for one of those. Just about any Eizo is going to last far beyond the 5 year warranty.

    I have a Eizo CG241W that has about 11,500 hours on it. Looks just as good as the day I bought!
