VA or IPS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

He's got $300 he plays E-sports games, any suggestions on a VA or ips 1080/1440 27 inch monitor?

In that budget you could get the ASUS VG279Q, 1080p 144hz IPS.

Other more extreme variant would be a 1080p 240hz TN.

If he is a pro gamer then the 240hz could benefit him, but if more casual then the IPS panel would be nicer to look at.

It's neverending debate what is better. The better is different for everyone - someone loves VA, someone loves TN and others - IPS.

If he is competitive you will want a TN panel for anything above 120hz.

Beyond that frequency both VA and IPS panels technically cant have a fast enough pixel response to keep up, resulting in blurring/ghosting thus reducing the effect of high refresh. This is a technical factual limitation.

 

If however he wants a better image then he needs to choose between dealing with IPS glow in dark room environments, or poor viewing angles from VA.

VA has better black levels. again though 120hz is the fastest you can ask for here, even then you have to check reviews to ensure the particular model ur looking at is designed to have as fast a pixel response as possible in real world tests , not just on the spec sheet.

 

Example:

ASUS VG279Q  144hz IPS

Advertised 1ms response

 

Target < 7ms Maximum response (not average) (1sec / 144)

 

Real world response With 80% overdrive = 4.1ms  0-80% 80% transition, 9.8ms 0-80% 100% transition,  Overshoot present.

other targets reveal slower pixel response

i.e

0% - 20% = 100% transition speed of 13.9ms. (Primarily due to overshoot )

80% - 20% = 100% transition speed of 12.5ms

As you can see there's more to it than just looking for a high frequency monitor with an advertised low response time.

In addition to the IPS Asus VG279Q, I would have a look at this MSI curved VA monitor which is currently  on sale at Microcenter (shipping is about $20, I think.)
