I recently bought an IPS monitor and I regret it. It's not that it's bad, but it's not worth $100 more than a TN panel.

I'm returning it and saving $100.

Too expensive.

I love ultrawide though.

I see.

Yeah, I just got this thing and it blows my mind... Of course, this is my first legit monitor and it is like stepping into a whole new world, lol.


For sure, that's an amazing monitor.

IPS is worthless with 8-bit TN panels around, I really don't know why anyone would spend the extra money to buy IPS these days.


because 8 bit tn still looks a lot worse


For reference, my current monitor is the Asus VK266H, and it's an 8-bit TN panel, and I always thought it looked washed out.

Do you guys think 32" is too big for a monitor? I've read that 27" is ideal, especially for 1440p being viewed at typical desk distances (eye strain).

But then there's the old 'bigger is better' philosophy, and again it's only $60aud more for an extra 5".

Having trouble deciding.

Where do you see it is 8bit? It is actually rare for a TN panel to be 8bit. If it is not 1440p the chances of it being 8bit is almost 0. There is no TN monitor that is 8bit with 1920x1200 resolution that i know of, since 8bit TN is a recent phenomenon.

Btw by 8 bit we mean 8 bit native not 6 bit + frc.


I just checked my monitor display settings and it simply said 8-bit (under 'Big depth').

But it makes sense that it's not, I can tell the colours aren't as vibrant as they could be. Like I said, it has always looked washed out to me.

Might want to check this out.

This is the monitor I'm actually returning. It's a good monitor for a good price on this sale. Like I said, I'm returning it because IPS isn't worth $100 over a TN panel to me, and actually 27" is too large for me. You'd probably like it, VanderZoo!

I don't know how much IPS tech has changed the past few years or so but the two I bought back then have better contrast with better color accuracy that "pops" more than non-IPS panels I or my hubby has/have had.

You have to calibrate them to suit you of course, I had to fiddle with the monitor's OSD settings a long time (Windows calibration features sucks imo) before I got it where I personally wanted (but I'm super picky about color tone and contrast).

Newer TN panels are definitely a lot better than some years ago however. A lot better. Some people just aren't as picky and/or depends on calibration options available/taken, etc.

I don't think viewing TN vs. IPS angle makes a huge difference these days, unless you're going to be watching Netflix while lying from a much lower position like on a bed or something.

Why are DisplayPort KVM's so expensive? Pfft.
