It's 1:37AM here, contemplating on which one to pick, I have decided to go for 650F, because legit, better waste less money on an all around good monitor with some drawbacks, than pay the premium for something that shines better in one aspect, but then lacks in another. I really couldn't justify the increase in the price tag from 650f to GL850 or GK850g, it's not even a compromise, their value is not even ground. I STILL cant understand the difference in smearing from 650F and 850G, it wasnt that horrible for 650F, and I had no scanlines or anything for that monitor, and I did sit pretty close to it. If you haven't tried the 650f or 850g, and you did enjoy the samsung VA with the smearing, excluding the other problems you had with it, then I think you will enjoy the LG ones, I also went from a curved 27'' VA samsung, but it wasn't a quantum dot, nor did it have freesync, which is crucial lol. A game like wolfenstein 2 looked AMAZING on 650F. I really didn't notice smearing there, it was there probably, but nothing to cry over about. When compared to IPS TV I have hooked up right now, here's the thing, It doesn't have great contrast, obviously, but I don't have IPS glow that I could tell apart or any bleeding, then again, it's a old TV and I don't give a flying ****.
Tho I wouldn't justify paying 520 bucks for a screen that's not uniform, let it be ****ty contrast, but I don't want to risk the lottery of that. Another thing to note is I dont watch movies on my monitor, but I have my Philips 55PUS7803 VA TV for that, and when I got it after returning the 55PUS7303 (which can be either VA or IPS, I instantly could tell the screen was IPS with the crappy contrast and backlight bleed and clouding), I couldn't be any happier, it is almost pitch black on a black screen, text and icons and everything on it looks awesome, only I will probably have to get it to repairs cause it has these dimmer vertical zones that you can see on darker backgrounds or when the HDR mode is on. So yeah, if you are watching movies on a monitor, VA is a MUST, at this point it's clear you want a monitor that serves well for all purposes, then just go for the LG 32GK850G if the price tag doesn't bother you. Since I mostly just game, maybe mess with corel draw and photoshop, IPS would be better, and I really got my eyes on ViewSonic VX2758-2KP-MHD, but it's nowhere in stock where I live, and it's cheaper than the 650F, I'd love to try it out over 650F just because of the price, but I'm not investing 200 more Euros for something that might be better, could be, maybe etc. etc.
