This. Sony, Vizio, Samsung flagship TVs are all VA. So are their high end ones, so are their mid grade ones, I'd assume their entry level ones are too. LG flagships are OLED, and have IPS ones that literally nobody uses because the picture quality is nowhere near good enough.

Also, input lag (the lag you feel) has absolutely nothing to do with panel type. That's related to the other electronics behind the display, the processing.

Hello everyone,

I am torn between getting a DELL U2515h (60Hz IPS) or the AOC G2460PF (144Hz Freesync TN).

I am a casual gamer (both moba and FPS). I have never used a 144 hz monitor, and I have never used one with Freesync. Moreover, where I live, I do not have the chance to use one in order to judge on my own which one suits me the best. I have only used 60Hz IPS monitors.

My question to you is: Will the 144hz freesync monitor make up for the color loss due to the TN technology? Is the color difference between IPS and TN that obvious? I know it all comes down to personal preference, but since I have never used 144hz panels or Freesync, I really don't know what to choose.

Moreover, U2515h is 1440p and I am not really sure how my R9 390 is going to handle it.

Thank you all in advance.

As for the choice between the u2515h and the aoc 144Hz. Your 390 will have a harder time getting 120 fps at 1080p than 60fps at 1440p. However free sync will enable you to not see as much stuttering down the road.

As for color: the u2515h uses an ips-8bit. Everyone keeps talking about xyz about ips vs TN. In your case your not photo editing. Havening recently bought 3 u2515h for coding and work related purposes I'll say the Light AG coating was rather nice and didn't grainy up the images as much as some older TN panels with the heavy grained AG coatings.
How's the Light conditions in your place were this display will go?

I've found that while people gripe about light bleed i have 3 and noticed far less then my prior displays.

For gaming it's the same as any old 60hz display. No different so if thays fine for you now it might be the better choice to get a higher res and "slightly" better color representation.

Yes the colors are better but typically the greys are the only place where you can drag from the IPS to the TN display and go where did the grey go.

I'm pretty happy with my u2515h's but I'm not gaming on them. Also the u2515h has some people griping about the HDMI issues with older cards. My quadro doesn't have HDMI output so I don't know if the port is bad or not.

When researching I was paranoid about light bleed but like I said above didn't have it in any of the three displays.

I can't speak for the AOC 144 However I have used other 144hz displays before and yes in a FPS game it's kinda neat you can wip around faster.

It's not going to elmimate motion blur and it's not amazing but then again I just said the u2515h colors weren't that amazing compared to some TN panels. If your going to do anything other than FPS games I would say the u2515h is the choice.

If you play FPS more than anything else get the AOC.

Your full RGB values will be great, but your inbetween might be in bad shape. You can get an sRGB monitor with virtually no perceivable banding.

EDIT: Also, to highlight that the backlight, while vital, has nothing to do with the bit-depth of a monitor, and in turn, how accurate the colors look.

This is why your saying that the panel technology has "nothing to do with how correct the color is" is simply not true.
It's certainly true. The panel technology is not at all tied to the bit-depth. There's plenty of low-price IPS monitors these days that can only achieve their 8bit bit-depth by dithering--that means they're actually 6bit panels and can only achieve 8bits by something called frame rate control. Likewise, there are some TN panels that have a bit-depth of 8 true bits.
