IPS glow. What is normal?

Recommended Posts

What do you think? Is it normal or should I return it/exchange the monitor? The AOC U34770PQU is an otherwise brilliant monitor but that glow/bleed is a bit annoying.

This is a bad example of IPS glow for reference

Do note that my photo was taken from a relatively lit room. From a completely dark room:

This is my first IPS panel so I'm just wondering if this is normal. I absolutely love the rich colors of the panel but as soon as I game and there's a dark scene the glow starts to become noticeable.. :/

 

Okay. It does look a lot worse in the picture vs rl but it's still quite glaring..

Please guys, set your camera to NOT auto adjust. Digital camera exagerate the problem SIGNIFICANTLY when set to auto, as it assumes you are taking a picture in a dimm environment and tries to get the most of the light to show what you a trying to take. Setting the camera to manual will not do this and if configured correctly, it will be exactly like what you see.

IPS glow should not be really visible, unless you look the monitor corner at an angle. Basically, the more you look at it at an angle, the worst it gets. It is only visible on black.

If it's always visible, even on content between displayed at the center, like a very wide screen movie, then that is called back light bleeding, as the back light bleeds through the panel, and always illuminate the same way.

IPS glow is normal for IPS monitor. It is a drawback of the technology. They are processes that exists to minimize the effect at the production stage, but they are costly, and usually reserved for (but not all) professional grade monitor.

Sadly, IPS panels aren't the why they used to be back in 2009. They are more affordable, and that means production cost cuts. Back light bleeding on med to low range consumer IPS panel is considered normal, and even expected. It's usually a small corner. It is also expected on tablets, laptops and phones running an IPS panel (although less visible on phones due to the small screen size), that is due to cost cutting measures, as fixing this, doesn't really boost sales, and also the space restriction of the panel limits good light shielding.

On high-end consumer grade IPS panels, it is not expected to be visible, unless you set your monitor brightness to near max.

@GrizzlyBear, based on the first picture, your monitor has backlight bleeding.

tbh pretty much all monitors will have some form of glow or another, if you really want zero glow then OLED

Decided to return it since the store I bought it from has a 30 day satisfaction guarantee.

 

What do you think. Should I ask for a refund or exchange it for another unit? The lower left corner is just way too noticeable during gaming. Both top corners are acceptable though.

Yeah. Maybe it's better to just wait for those ultrawide VA monitors. I'd rather have a bit more washed out colors if it means no light bleed/glow obstructing dark scenery in games.

I didn't say that.

You can try returning it and buying the same one again. Maybe it is a manufacture error on yours.

I don't have that panel nor see many in depth monitor review to know.

 

I would recommend not to exchange it, but return it and order another one, so that the 30 day return period resets, in the case you actually want to return it and get your money back, or a try a different model.

Yeah. Good point. I might try the curved Dell, but right now I'll proly just ask for a refund and wait for reviews from the 34" VA panels. (like Samsung S34E790C & HP Z34c)

So a small update.

 

Ordered the Dell U3415W and I'm happy to say that it has none of the issues that plagued the AOC ultrawide. Only very minor light bleed with barely any noticeable IPS glow. Not much different than my old TN panel to be honest. The little bleed there is, is only really noticeable in a completely dark room against a black background.

 

Overall I'm blown away by the quality of this monitor vs the AOC one. And I'm really digging the curve as well. :)

Thanks for the update!

Yes, Dell makes fantastic monitors for your money. Yes, they are not the cheapest, but you do get what you paid for. And the warranty service is fantastic. The simple fact that you don't need to pay shipping on either directions, and that you get to keep your monitor while a replacement arrives, is fantastic. To me, all companies should be doing this, if they are confident in their products. No need to treat your consumers are they are all trying to advantage of the system in some manner. Not to mention you now have a 3 year warranty, and excellent bright/stuck/dead pixel coverage for 3 years as well, unlike AOC (30-days for bright/stuck pixels... and to top things over: you have distance, and zones policy that the faulty pixels need to respect to top things off as reasons to not cover you).
