has VA panel improved to match IPS?

Since modern times, technology has obviously exponentially got better every year for computer hardware especially displays. There is more argument for ips vs va back then.However, i am looking for a new display. I have tn gaming monitor which is really good. I have tried ips and the colour looks amazing on dell displays and the acer is just so-so. I have not tried the va but from what i have researched yet i still dont have any answer about the va which is apparently the newer technology after ips. 

I never seen any VA display that is on par with ips. I do know IPS is the best but i want to be open to different panels. 

Thank you

you are a bit behind. Oled is the best, but exept if you have 2000-4000 dollars to burn, it ins't a option

 

as far as I've seen is ips and va about the same in colors. only the viewing angles on va are a bit worse, and black and whites differ a bit...

iirc, VA has better whites, and IPS has better blacks <- backwards. Seeing as IPS panels are more widely used, I would imagine they are better in some way over VA panels. Also, VA panels typically have worse response times than IPS, which leads to blurring. I have both types at 100-144Hz, and the VA at 100Hz is noticeably worse than the IPS at 144Hz

It's the oppostive actually, IPS has better white or better saying "light" colours, while VA has the best blacks.

 

This is due to the usual backlight bleed effect on IPS panels... response wise VA and IPS is pretty identical if you're shopping for the latest models which hardly is any worse than TN nowadays thanks to slight improvements here and there.

 

All in all though no need to stress too much about it nowadays... But I'd still go IPS for that lil bit of extra colour accuracy even though certain games with tendecy of having very dark and low bright environments might actually take advantage of the VA's superiority with black/very dark colours.

Depending on your definition of modern times i would argue technology has gone backwards in regards to VDU's.

 

LCD is a trash VDU tech with major flaws with its current 3 primary LCD panel types.

TN - crap image quality.

PS - IPS glow, and poor blacks

VA - slow pixel reposne, poor viewing angles.

All of them - Cant produce black unless equiped with FLAD. Even then, all have low density arrays resulting in haloing.

 

CRT and Plasma, dispite their physical size and power usage flaws, had pritty much zero flaws in regards to image quality. The image of which is the priamry purpose of a VDU.

 

The only 'modern' VDU tech to match and surpass CRT and Plasma is OLED, but OLED is only currently readily availabel at 55"+ sizes.

 

 

Now if u say "LCD tech has improved over time". Yes it has. Its still LCD, so its still crap ..but its improved crap non the less.

Your choices are the same as 10 years ago but each of the 3 panel types has lessend its particular flaws somehwat.

 

IPS - is cheaper now, and faster.

TN - produce better colors and overall image quality than in the past

VA - Now have faster pixel resposne 'reducing' ghosting.

 

Now imo .. i would probably go with VA. Primarily due to the better contrast and black levels. However, i would have to ensure i get a VA panel that has been tested vs others and has a fast pixel response to reduce ghosting as much as possible. Even then though, i expect i would not be able to put up with it.

There's a reason i still use a 1080p Plasma as my VDU , i simply cant stand ANY of the 3 panel types and their associated flaws.
