Are there any TN or IPS monitors that reliably have no backlight bleeding?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Does anyone have any idea on a IPS (or non IPS 120Hz TN gaming monitor 1080p is fine) that has no backlight bleeding?

Just to clarify, I'm not talking about a general IPS glow in the corners, I'm talking about a yellow glow that appears at the edge which is noticeable in office light conditions for dark scenes in movies or dark games.

I have a Dell 2713HM and I'm on my second one, both have backlight bleeding. I know there is already a post about that Dell monitor but I didn't want to derail that post by asking my question.

Thanks.

What size are you looking for? That makes quite a difference. Not so much in technical terms, but just so we know which panels are interesting to you.

No BLB at all is actually a bit too rare. But there are monitors that are there or very close. It is worth noting that even with big brand name quality monitors, there can be differences between to otherwise identical monitors.

In general TN panel are still better than IPS for gaming so that is where I would look.
Mainly due to better response times and lower lag.
The main drawback is that TN panels generally do not have as accurate colour representation as IPS. However, this is not a rule without exceptions. Some new TN panels do actually have colours that are in the same accuracy range as some of the best IPS panels. And some IPS panels have very poor colour accuracy.

My BenQ XL2420T (120Hz TN) has zero bleed.

Thanks for the replies.

Dire Squirrel, Ideally a 27" 1440p (I'm thinking 27" 1080p might be a bit large pixel size wise for me) or a 24" 1080p.

Cheers.

Since you specified gaming monitor, I would go for the 24" 1080p out of those choices.
Higher resolution can be nice, but for gaming, good response time and low input lag are the things that really matter.

The BenQ that already been suggested is deffinitely a very good monitor. And it has a very good stand.

The Asus VG248QE is another 24" monitor that you may want to take a look at. 1MS response time and 144Hz. I have heard a few complaints about backlight bleed on this monitor, but the ones that I have seen in person have not had any. My guess is that it must have been a bad batch or something like that.

Thanks Dire Squirrel (great name by the way!), I'll check those out.
