Eizo Coloredge Are older models still worth buying?


Are 10+ year old Eizo Coloredge models still worth it for providing accurate colour when proofing for book publishing? Versus newer but ‘lesser’ brands?

I can invest $2000 for a lower end newer model or pick up an 21 or 22 inch for much less. Are the tolerances really that critical between cg  cs or cx product lines?

I am not seeking pantone matching. I would like to experience the final proofs  in the best possible color environment that I am willing to afford.

Right now, I am using an older BenQ SW2700. Are there are any recommendations for Eizo models other than CG, as I may not require CG quality.

This is a project with hundreds of images from many sources presented in different sizes. Different analog and digital sources in color and black and white. It contains a wide range of underlying colour characteristics or B&W grain.

I am using an iProfiler for calibration but would be looking forward to benefit from self calibration. I use Capture One and it has an option for Eizo monitors in the preferences.

Will it make it difference in terms of eye care?

Thanks and Stay Well
