PLS is generally considered to be better than IPS aminly due to black levels and contrast capabilities. However AH-IPS specifically tends to be equal or better than PLS. PLS tends to be a bit warm and better at a warmer color scale. AH-IPS is the exact opposite in that it is a bit better at cool colors and tends to have a bit better gamma levels(in my opinion). I have tested both and prefer PLS for games but i still think AH-IPS was a tad superior. My advise is to go to the store and take a look at both if you can and decide yourself.

This is a question of IPS vs PLS which i already spoke on. I would taking a look at thread and forums that specifically regard the IPS vs PLS. This is going to be mainly dependent on preference especially if you don't plan on OCing.

Korean IPS is normally 6ms for response time, while PLS is 8ms. Both seem to be equal in input lag (about 8-10ms iirc). I've had both IPS/PLS 120hz panels - they are identical in terms of amount of blur/input lag when tested side by side. IPS dont darken when overclocked while its not uncommon for PLS to, so the contrast levels kind of even out since while the black levels are darker, so is everything else. But there is the option to combat this with color profiles.

Right now i like the PLS by a hair more because the darks are better, and there are a lot of games that have dark backgrounds.

Guys when using the ICS profiles from here, do you guys have the Nvidia control panel set to Other Applications Control color settings or Use Nvidia settings?

Yes you have to otherwise the driver or NVCP will be running the calibration settings for the screen which is default unless you have modified them.

About the same as Asus Monitors or many other name brands that are not known for having no backlight bleed. If you search over the forum it is pretty clear that it does happen but more often than not it is minimal or no more than store bought panels. I think there was a post were a member went through all the backlight bleed posts per member and put together a little statistics behind this. The post was mainly common terms though so it would be hard to find. Overall i think there was like a 50% chance to get none or very little. Another 25-35% of people fixed theirs with the BLB fix which left a margin of people who just complained and never got back to post or never mentioned it.

It´s really common to have some sort of backlight bleeding but it isnt always really bad, and the really bad ones are fixable. Now I know some people are "fanboys" to these monitors and will say just as much as any other brand but I have seen blb on 1/50 monitors by regular brands. And there is always minimal blb on these monitors. The one monitor is sadly the one im using right now smile.gif
