On October 30, 2013 in Hakusan, Japan, the EIZO Corporation announced the 23.5-inch FORIS FG2421, the world’s first gaming monitor with a 240 Hz refresh rate.The FORIS FG2421 comes with a new feature called Turbo 240 that surpasses the 120 Hz refresh rate of conventional gaming monitors. Turbo 240 converts 120 Hz signals to 240 Hz by controlling the blinking of the LED backlight. This high refresh rate along with a response time of less than 1ms produces the smoothest image display available on a gaming monitor. This unit comes with a five year warranty.
