The problem is that you have to make such big compromises whether you go with IPS or VA. There's no "right" answer.Vayra wrote:IPS cannot hold a candle to VA in my humble opinion.
VA = zero bleed zero glow and extreme static contrast ratio. My FG2421 has 5000:1 static, 8bit+FRC, 120hz with a universally applicable strobe utility (240turbo). IQ is unmatched, IPS cannot reach this contrast and recent IPS offerings all have this annoying IPS glow which makes using IPS in dark rooms or dark games incredibly annoying. I came from a Dell U2515H. The only real tangible drawback I see with VA is the slight contrast/gamma shift from left to right. If I look at monitor edges, contrast is slightly reduced. But it is nowhere near as visible as IPS glow is, even during the day. Where IPS 'feels' like an LCD, VA really does 'feel' like a CRT at 120hz.
VA only suffers from a slower black-dark grey transition, it shows only ever so slightly in very specific situations but honestly after a few days of use, it is easy to get used to and I hardly even notice it today. Input lag on VA can be low enough not to matter at all either, although I am sure the 0ms-knights will disagree. But in my book, if you think 3-6 ms is a life and death difference, you have lost the plot and are just looking at spreadsheets too much.
Note however that the only fast VA is the FG2421 until now, Acer and Iiyama have some VA's but they're not gaming panels and horribly slow on transition and input lag. VA when done right, is awesome and for me the best of panel tech.
