Monitor Inquiry (VA/IPS)

Current Monitors:

BenQ XL2411T(Main)

LG E2351(Second)

 

I have been racking my brain for a few weeks now trying to choose a new monitor (VA/IPS), i was pretty much set on a MPG27CQ but then realised VA panels have a really bad issue with ghosting which i would not find acceptable as all i do on my computer is game. I then started to look more in to IPS Panels but as most of us already know the lowest ms on IPS is 4ms, so my question is how does 4ms(IPS) hold up against 1ms(TN).

 

Anymore information about VA panels would also be appreciated but it seems you can not escape ghosting on these models.

I have a 100 Hz VA panel. It is noticeably lower quality than my 144Hz TN panel, and I can guarantee it's not solely because of refresh rate, I think just it being a VA panel. I've never owned a high refresh rate IPS panel but I've used a few and they have no noticeable difference compared to a TN, IMO. Refresh rate is probably one of the lesser important qualities of a monitor, and supposedly there's no standardized way of testing it either. I just go with 5ms or lower and call it good enough. I would take a good IPS any day over a good TN. But this is all subjective, everyone has different eyes, and likes different things.

I am leaning more and more towards a "Acer XB271HUB" over the "MSI MPG27CQ" as the reviews seem very reasonable and not much mention of ghosting/trailing, just the matter of playing the BLB lottery with an IPS which seems ridiculous but...

From what i have seeen tested, Most TN panels find it hard to hit 4ms 100% pixel transition speed.

However, Manufactuers, whome all use different testing methodologies (this is why u ignore maufacture specs), are almost certianly stating 80% transition speeds.

 

For IPS, the best ones i've seen have 2.8ms - 3.5ms 80% speed and 7.8ms and 13ms 100% transition speeds.

 

For VA, the best ones i've seen have  2.8ms - 5ms 80% speed and 10.9 -13ms 100% speed.

 

For reference TN have around 2ms - 4ms 80% speeds and 4-10ms 100% speeds.

 

There differnce isnt huge in numbers but does make a difference in practice. idealy u want to ensure your 100% speed is below that of the frame time of monitor, so 144hz is 6.9ms, which is why u should get a TN panels at that refresh rate.
