Making a decision between TN or IPS

Feighery
 Share

I currently have a dual monitor setup of 23inch older monitors, 60Hz. An Iiyama and Dell. The problem I have had is that the bezels are quite large for a dual screen setup and neither support freesync. Plus the Dell monitor has a very poor refresh rate with some artefacts burnt into the screen.

 

I am looking at two monitors to replace them, on a budget.

I have narrowed my selection down to an iiyama 24.5 inch TN monitor with 1ms refresh time 1080p and a Dell 23 inch IPS monitor with 5ms response time 1080p. Both do 75Hz with freesync.

I have an RX480 8GB gfx card and I find 1080 to be fine, no really looking at the jump to 1440.

 

The IPS is cheaper at €124 euro and the TN is €141 but that little bit larger.

 

I do a lot of amature photo and video work, which is why I was looking IPS in the first place but is there realistically enough of a different between these two?

I play a few games, mainly Starcitizen and the like so visuals can be important.

Anyone want to push me in the direction of one or the other or even have an alternative in that price range.

 

Thanks

If you're doing any sort of colour sensitive work on your display, then a TN panel is not suitable, you'll need an IPS panel. Response times are mostly just bs and you won't notice the difference between 1ms and 5ms, but the graphics will look so much better on an IPS panel than the TN one.

I think VA is the least worse choice ..but out of TN and IPS .. IPS is the least worst.

I went IPS, got two AOC frameless 24inch ones. They are excellent.
