Two different 31.5" 1440P VA flat panels don't just pop out of thin air at the same time and be completely different. That is not how the display industry works. Significant tooling is involved.

But you have to agree that if what this guy says is true then it's suspiciously little for a VA:

Every LG Ultrawide I've had had serious BLB problems. LG is not free from fault at all. Also, their $1400 LG32ud99 32" HDR IPS is a disaster in blb.

But their 4K series of monitors are VA. Maybe the 165Hz is achieved by lowering the contrast to IPS levels.

But one things for sure, if it's IPS, and there is no A-TW polarizer on a 31.5" screen, it is going to be the AUO M270 IPS glow nightmare but on steroids.

I'm not saying it is impossible to be IPS (especially considering LG is an IPS company), but I'd take the word of the official spec sheet over "a friend of a friend called some random customer support guy". I've actually found customer support people wrong more than correct.

EDIT: Nevermind, the LG rep for the UK actually confirmed it is VA in my thread here:

Yeah I'm debating cancelling my preorder because waiting another 2 weeks when it was suppose to ship today blows but I really want a VA Gsync monitor that is not a Ultrawide.

Ya it should be an interesting monitor. I would have continued with my pre-order if it had ULMB.

Shame, looks like another monitor with this panel but no strobing backlight.

I think the smear must be terrible for none of these monitors to have a strobe function.

That's using the CHG70's 1800R curved panel. Completely different from this LG.

I dunno if I should just bite the bullet on a X35 ($899) or Z35P for 20hz more. I just hate Ultrawides though so I'll wait for this LG since Newegg is offering extended holiday returns.

Oh ya for some reason I was thinking the LG was curved too. Been looking at too many different monitors... If it is using the CHG70's screen, that isn't good news. It did quite poorly in TFTcentrals motion testing. Especially since there is no strobing backlight on the ASUS.
