>have several terrible experiences with "high end" monitors
>end up just going for a U2515H because it's considered reliable
Are you fucking kidding me
How is this remotely deemed acceptable
Can confirm. I had a U2312HM once and it had similar levels of IPS glow and some other problems.
Returned it and stuck with my old samsung syncmaster P2450. It's a shitty TN panel, but at least it's fast (muh vidya) and decently usable.
I'd love to have a 30" 4K OLED screen on my desk though, if it didn't have burn in problems and shit. Guess I'll have to wait another 5-10 years for them to become decent and affordable.
I really want a new monitor and after like 7years with a TN I wont go back to it. So its IPS only, I also want that g-sync and 120+hz.
Its sad that there are currently only 2 monitor out with those specifications and both suffer from insane blb, dead pixel and horrible quality in general.
There is also only one new ips, gsync, 120+hz monitor coming out this year and its going to be 1200€, I just hope it will be better than the acer/asus ones.
At this point Iam very desperate and willing to schill out 1200€ for a 27" monitor.
Inb4 w8 for oled, my current monitor is 8years old and I sure wont use it for another 5-6years.
I really hate IPS but everything else is worse.
I'm about ready to give up and buy the UP3017Q, but being an early adopter of OLED monitors seems like an unnecessary risk given the price.
Where did it all go wrong?
I play a bit of grid 2 / gta 5 races on my dell u2415.
I have to admit, if I'm looking for ghosting issues then I can find them.
Its not really noticeable but if you look for it then fast moving stuff on the edges of the screen does have a little bit of ghosting, think of the top part of streetlights for example. But for the most part its not noticeable.
Also I do play some shooters on the monitor like cs:go and I cant really notice anything there.
gsync/freesync is not a meme, it actually works.
same thing with 60+hz, its a straight up fact.
do you feel offended or anything? just chill man.
there are no va panels for my needs therefore your suggestion is pointless.
The Dell U2414H is what you want. It has incredibly good response times for an IPS display.
What qualities make a high end monitor?
Thinner the TFT, more changes of it not being completely flat and so it bends too close to the backlight. This is the primary reason for backlight bleed. TFT's have become thinner all the time. The type of backlight (CCFL or LED, backlit or edgelit) has very little to do with it.
Secondary reason is incorrectly designed housing, which introduces uneven or too much of a pressure on the TFT or the whole panel construction.
I currently have NEC lcd2490wuxi, PA301, PA322UHD and Eizo CG303W, CX271, CX240 and CG247. All of them have backlight bleed, the CX271 very much.
If you play at 60Hz at most, does IPS really lose to TN in gaming applications? Like, what's the difference? I know it's easier/cheaper to make 120+ Hz panel with TN, but if the IPS panel says the response time is 5ms or less, wouldn't that be enough for gaming at 60Hz?
I ask because I want to get a new monitor and I play fast competitive games, but capped at 60Hz. It's full of cheapish <150€ IPS panels that claim response times of 5ms or less.
>mfw I've been using a 42" 1080p HDTV as my monitor since 2010
>no ghosting in games
>good for movies
>no complaints so far
why are TVs considered bad monitors again?
Input lag. The fact that you don't notice it doesn't mean it isn't there, anon. It just means you're not a pro gamer playing at an elite level.
Am I really going to have to put up with this old 1680x1050 piece of shit for another 6-7 years until OLED monitors are finally the new standard? Is there seriously not a single good option on the market right now?
From what you've written, i'm sure you're referring to the PG279Q and XB271HU monitors. If you're desperate for one, i'd run for the Acer XB271HU, simply because their QC is quite better than ASUS. I'm getting my second Acer monitor in tomorrow b/c the first one had a dead pixel in the corner, but didn't suffer from any BLB or noticeable IPS glow.
The $1200 monitor you're referring to is the ViewSonic one, correct? I'm not too sure how it'd going to turn out in terms of quality, but $1200 is pretty damn steep when the competition is $400 cheaper. Plus, they describe the panel as being "SuperClear IPS-type" which sounds like it's just gonna be the same AU Optronics panel their competition uses.
yeah I was referring to the viewsonic one.
well, even its going to be same panel I atleast hope they will have their qa on point for that amount of money. I dont need to tell you that Iam sure you know about the quality issues with those things.
My U2414H doesn't have very noticeable IPS glow, maybe a little bit on the lower right corner, but it goes away when I back away from the monitor.
What bother me more is somewhat noticeable darker areas when viewing solid colors. The middle and to an extent the right portion of the screen is slightly brighter than the rest of it. Again, it's only noticeable when looking at solid colors, but it's still annoying knowing it's there. It also has tiny, dark areas (1/4 inch) on the bottom corners of the screen. These issues are illustrated in pic related.
The U2415 has that issue as well, yet it's worse than what you've described and had a small dead sub-pixel. Had to return it after I noticed that.
It was my first and last ever Dell monitor, terrible quality control.
Got a BenQ BL2411PT and never looked back.
Its not the manufacturers fault, its the lazy game devs who only optimaze their games for 16:9.
Some games have amazing 16:10 support like all Valve games, but many other just have those fucking ugly black bars on the top and bottom.
I don't have those dark spots in the upper corners. My dark spots are very small and in the very corners, but still somewhat annoying.
At least there's absolutely no backlight bleeding and the screen is overall quite uniform compared to cheaper TN panels and most TVs.
I bought a asus rog swift pg279q, Does asus dont do Quality controll?
That thing had backlight bleeding like fucking crazy... I want to get a new monitor but I dont want too go through the rma shit again... So what companie actualy checks the products they sell
pic related my 15 inch retina macbook pro, looks much worse on the picture for some reason tbqh
Yeah I'd really just wait. Some guy at a tv store told me that the boot (!) logo on their lg oled had burned in.. I can imagine the early dell monitors having similar issues.
You'll probably save at least 2 grand if you at least wait one year m8
