Do IPS panels tend to look smeary compared to TNs?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm really OCD (not denying this) so ghosting/motion blur annoys the hell out of me and gives me headaches.

I'd LIKE to get an IPS monitor to get the better image quality, but this worries me.

Input lag has improved over the years. One reason why I bought a Dell U2311H.

If ghosting is a major issue, I would recommend sticking with a CRT (>85Hz).

They look great, no motion blur.

I've been curious about IPS response times as well. Is it safe to say that if you can easily tell the difference between 2 and 5ms on a TN that you would be able to see the ghosting on whatever the fastest IPS is (I think 6?)?

I don't notice any ghosting on my LG IPS 236, which has the same panel as the dell ultrasharp monitors.

The specs say 8ms but the reviews I've seen said it was usually closer to 2-5. Take what I'm saying with a handful of salt though, because I'm really not as picky as most gamers are about response time. Anything under 8 feels the same to me, even in a fast paced FPS.

The superior color IS very noticeable though.

I have noticed the occasional blur happen with mine, but that was only playing cod doing the occasional 360's

your monitor have ghosting

The panel used is not the same to u2311h, because is ips236v use a last revion, the ghosting depend not to panel but to overdrive tecnology, and in your model this dont run, and u have around 25ms like the IPS231P model, u dont see any ghosting because u are not an hardcore gamer.
And your contrast ratio is very low around 500:1, if u want an 23" good IPS by LG there's only E2370v that is a gaming monitor with truMode and truMotion tecnologies.


Dell U2311h have 8ms only in factory specific because in benchmark is only little highter than the best 2ms monitors, and this is the faster and quality better 23" IPS monitor actually.


Good IPS monitor have not ghosting, and is for FPS and race games whiout any issue, U2311h, U2211h, U2412m, U2410, U2711, U3011, E2370v, ML239H, LG IPS226v, Asus PA246Q ecc.....

5ms in tn panel is not comparable to 5ms of IPS, IPS is much faster.

Newegg lists the response time of the E2370V as 14ms, is that wrong?
