    Was it really necessary to make the stand of shiny black plastic? Reply

    Jeeze man, I mean, I get it, but overall the look is pretty decent and when it's not covered in Rgb lights I think we need to take the win. Reply

    I resigned my office-job and now I am getting paid 90 dollar hourly. How? I work over internet! My old work was making me miserable, so I was forced to try something different, two years after...I can say my life is changed-completely for the better!

    Check it out what i do....

    It was absolutely critical to make the stand of glossy plastic. Reply

    TN Panels xx(

    How much extra would it cost to have a monitor properly calibrated at the factory? Because at this point I think that's the main thing holding back budget PC monitors...they are usually very poorly calibrated out of the box. Reply

    Also, how many years before OLEDs enter the PC monitor market? 5? 10? Never? Reply

    I gave up waiting for OLED to get cheap enough even for a TV and settled for IPS with "full array" backlight. Maybe I'll get lucky and OLED prices will drop 75% belle the return period expires. If they can't make a cheap 50" panel where they have plenty of room with "large" (relatively) pixels, getting a reasonably priced 25" panel with the requisite smaller pixels seems unlikely. Reply

    Probably never as people are still buying the crappier screens. No point in advancing if you're still milking consumers of their $$$/£££. That's business for you.

    If everyone stopped buying the cheaper pap it might happen.

    TN crap again? Is anybody ever going to make a FreeSync-more-than-1080p IPS screen? I only need FreeSync because I keep the graphics quality at high levels. What's the point if the screen goes and washes out all the nice colors with crappy outdated LCD tech? Reply

    Such monitors exist. Maybe instead of complaining about TN panels you can just use google to find one.

    TN panels also still produce much better response times and reduced input latency than IPS, which is beneficial for fast paced games (primarily FPS). 144hz IPS displays exist but they still don't come close to matching equivalent TN panels.

    ^^This right here.

    I'm not getting anything but TN display for gaming and today it's far more difficult to find a good TN display than IPS or VA.

    Give me a matte TN display with 120-144Hz refresh rates and a distinct lack of LEDs, speakers, USB hubs or all the other crap they keep pushing in there to justify bumping the price.

    You want an IPS or VA display with hugh refresh rates?

    Good for you, the market is pretty much only that these days.

    At least let it have hdmi audio pass through to a headphone out. Reply

    Let's not also forget that not all TN panels are complete crap. A high quality panel like the ones found in good gaming displays still produces a pretty good image. Yes it's not as good as IPS, but it's worlds better than the terrible cheapo panels you can get for sub-$100. I own several nearly top of the line IPS displays which are absolutely fantastic for what they do, but I'm 100% pleased with my 144Hz TN panel I use for gaming. I could not be happier with that purchase, and even sitting side by side with my IPS panel it still produces a pretty good picture. I also own 2 super cheap TN panels which I use when I visit my parents out of state and by comparison it's night and day difference in quality. I could probably convince most people my 144Hz display is IPS when side by side with one of those. Reply
