0:40 look at the legs of the center/left guy jumping... is that overshoot or smearing? I hope the guy just set the overdrive too high because otherwhise this is not acceptable
850G is undersaturated even for sRGB, unless you use it as a TV from a 4m far away couch.
These blurry videos are useless to see any judge anything from.

I need VA,SRGB and variable overdrive and this is the only panel that has all.
Idk why people are obsessed with IPS, you don't need viewing angles unless you are trying to look at the monitor from stupid positions, TN is a different story because gamma shifts even if you sit 0,5 cm lower. Vivid colors yeah but are you willing to get dark greys with that? I am not
100% yes, some of these VA panels are screwed up with too deep backlight that doesn't extend enough around sides and you loose pixels even from normal viewing positions. I've reported and documented this for the Samsung and AUO VAs, the other monitors (IPS) didn't have this problem.
You do need viewing angles, duh! Unless you are watching your monitors from 10 meters away, I certainly don't.
25deg for a 31.5" is pretty normal and VA can't do that, the 850G desaturates a lot out of center. All VAs do. If a panel is already in red at 30 deg on rtings measurements, it's bad. You want one that stays in the green, aka minimal change with angle.
The Samsung VA also has terrible blacks viewing angles and glow. AUO VA has better blacks viewing angle but Samsung VA has better colors and brightness viewing angles.
The difference in viewing angles between IPS and other LCD types is night and day.
All the 850G photos and videos of smearing/response times, viewing angles, pixel layout, blb, glow and other possible issues are all here:

The VA vs IPS smearing is here:
Even at 60fps you can see how snail the VA is, you can also see some of the over shoots but would need much faster recording frame rate to capture those well.
If you like it, buy it, otherwise all about these monitors have been covered in reviews and what hasn't is in these Samsung and LG threads from users and comparisons of endless issues in my own threads.
In the end you have to buy it and see it. Some people buy a VA, look at it and send it back the same day, no joke, it can be that bad to them even for some simple office/home work and gaming. Especially if one had an IPS before that was nice and uniform on it's entire area.
