It's all good.

Also .. as you mentioned PLS vs IPS ...

I agree that reviews don't show PLS to have a marked advantage over IPS panels ... but they *do* confirm that they are on par with one another.

That said .. and having purchased a Dell U2711 (an IPS panel) prior to my current Samsung 850D ... I much prefer the Samsung panel. First and foremost because the game play is quite noticeably better on the Samsung. The Dell U2711 was okay ... playable and all but there was a very noticeable "smearing" to the trailing images during movement ... this especially bugged me in Skyrim outdoor areas where lots of trees were present. The blur/smearing was annoying. Wheareas, the Samsung's input response and especially the trailing smears/blurring is reduced to almost non existent. Just speaking of gaming, I can personally verify that the performance is better on the Samsung 850D (and also the 970D, which I had too but returned in favor of the 850D).

Also, I prefer the whites of the PLS panel. I'm not sure if this is due to the SEMI GLOSSY coating on the Samsung or something inherent to the PLS technology but the Dell seemed almost "off white" or something ... and the Dell's very heavy anti-glare coating bugged the crap out of as text seemed less crisp and everything seemed to be like looking through a filter. The semi gloss screen of the 850D (also the new Asus PB278Q which uses a Samsung PLS panel), to my eye, is the perfect medium point between the annoying reflections of a full glossy screen and the annoying haze effect of the regular anti-gloss screens.

Otherwise, though ... I found the general color performance to be identical between the IPS and PLS screens.

I've read quite a few good things about the new Asus PLS panel but I've also read around that it's utilization of PWM control of the backlight dimming causes some noticeable image flicker for some users.

For whatever reason, in both the Samsung 970D and the 850D ... I've noticed zero flicker ...

Just some info ...

Best.

To be fair I think at this level of quality, it really mostly comes down to personal experience and personal interpretation.

I have had no issues with smearing on my IPS panel, I do tend to agree in regards to the whites though, they're not really 'pure white' but they're white enough to make my eyes hurt when the brightness is on full so I can't complain. tongue.gif

I love the black levels on this IPS panel and I tend to agree that glossy panels seem to give better clarity and an overall better perception of quality. Some people do however point blank refuse to buy a screen that is glossy, because to them it is virtually unusable.

I agree.

And for the most part I was discussing specifically the U2711 and the Samsung 850D ... as IPS, in general, are just as capable in regards to gaming as are PLS and in many cases, much better ... (speaking of input lag/response times, etc.)

But the Dell U2711, specifically, is def a technically "slower" monitor than the 850D (or the new Asus panel) as it's simply engineered differently.

Just wanted to clarify that I wasn't speaking of IPS in general ... hell ... many of the Korean IPS monitors are, technically, a good deal faster than the Samsung 850D PLS panel ... simply due to mechanical engineering chocies. I mean, I have to be honest ... I personally would *love* to see 120hz on my panel but that will have to wait for the next upgrade cycle.

I love mine, it was everything I expected and more. The colors and viewing angles blow my older screens out of the water, the build quality and mount are awesome, and moving to 1440p was every bit as big a leap as it was from 720p to 1080p. All in all I'm very impressed with this monitor, and would warmly recommend it to anyone considering buying one smile.gif

As an aside, I'm running mine at 75Hz without any issues, though I haven't tried going any higher to see how high I can get it.

Right, will get one soon smile.gif. Couldn't decide between this and U2711 which was on sale for same price as 2713hm but the 2711 has bad backlight, way more heat and powerconsumption. Only plus was the 1 bil colours which I would probably not even notice.

I used to own the Dell U3011 and i thought it was the greatest thing at first compared to the regular 1080p lcd panels i had, but the shiny anti glare took some getting used to, but now that i have my glossy Crossover 27Q, i dont think i will ever buy a anti glare coated panel, my korean ips panel looks amazing and the best part is i only paid $420, id love to try the samsung, but the $800-$900 pricetag doesn't make it work it to try something fairly easy, i really hope these korean panels start bringing down the price of OEM screens like Samsung, Dell, HP, and Apple.

I really hope these 4k monitors hit the mainstream market in the next two years, so it will give me a reason to completely revamp my system!
