Is that normal to have slightly darker colors on edges.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I bought my first IPS panel and not sure what's normal or not.

So when looking straight in the center you see red for example, but on the edges it's slightly darker red. But when you move your head to look straight on the edge you see same red as you saw in the center.

I guess it's normal, but just in case curious. It's like viewing angles on TN just for some reason more noticeable(or maybe I just look into it too much)

Thats not an issue with viewing angles. It's called vignetting and is common with any LCD display. Some have more, some have less.

 

Edit: Even high-end LCD panels like a Samsung Q90r TV for >2000$ still suffer from this.

 

Edit 2: Misread first. If it would be vignetting, it would stay even if you move your head to the edges. What IPS monitor do you have? Seems like a lower quality one.

If it were a static effect it would be 'normal' vignetting which varies fro model to model.

 

However since its changing as u move its likely the result of IPS glow affecting the colors.

 

Set a black background and see what it looks like in a dark room.

 

Some amount of IPS is normal however it varies from panel to panel and u dont want to have much if any at all , so u could get it replaced with another monitor of the same model and have a different amount.

Yes that looks like IPS glow. This is related to IPS technology and will be a problem with all IPS monitors to a varying degree. Some have more, some have less. You can replace it with the same model to see if you get a better panel (but all IPS monitors have it), but if it doesn't bother you too much i'd just leave it. Normally you only see it in very dark scenes.

Thats IPS glow.

 

If u cant position the monitor and/or urself in such a way that u dont see it / very little, then u could just RMA it and get another one ..its a lottery on how much ull get. But do understand, the next one could end up being worse.

Well there are many factors that can impact this. First theres just uniformity, which means if the same color appears slightly different on each part of the screen. Then theres viewing angles, which mean how the colors shift when not viewing flat from the front. And vignetting are the darker borders. There is no LCD monitor which is perfect in any of these. The Issue you brought up is a combination of everything. But from the fotos and the video i don't see anything to a degree where you should worry about it.
