I went from a Dell U2715H to a Samsung C27HG70 (so, from IPS to VA), and I love my Samsung monitor so much that I do not at all miss the "IPS" feature of the Dell.

But do bear in mind I'm not a professional working in photographs/video. For professionals, I can see why IPS would be an important issue. There are times when I kind of just put one of my legs up on the table, lean back on my chair, rotated a bit sideways (so, viewing my current VA pane at an angle), and the colors do slightly wash out. But it's not serious, so it's a non-issue for me.

All the benefits of the Samsung, such as high refresh rate, higher brightness far outweigh the IPS of the Dell. Yes, two different panels from two different time periods, but point is, after getting this monitor, I realized IPS wasn't a must-have feature for me.

One thing I will agree with everyone on, though, is ultra-wide was a pain in the butt for me. I tried it a couple of years ago, and at that time, no games supported it, so I had vertical black bars on the sides. Also software blu-ray players didn't support UW, so watching movies meant I had black bars on all four sides, which was horrific (I'm guessing streaming services would've had the same results). Maybe game devs and media software have caught up, but from the looks of other people's complaints it doesn't look like it.

It all depends on the quality of IPS, TN and VA. I have had Dell U2711 (IPS) and changed to Philips BDM4065UC (VA) and now LG 55C7 (OLED). What I noticed is that IPS has very good colours and viewing angles which VA does not have but once you get used to deep black on VA its hard to go back to IPS. I still favour use cases with bright scenes as appose to dark scenes. In the end, I would say its the quality of that particular model that is more important.

Thanks, I just was wondering if there was a bunch of people that regretted going from IPS to VA.

As far as Blu-ray software not supporting it... or use to not support it. I rip all my Blu-rays with AnyDVD and use a MPC-Classic fork with MadVR... no issues with ultra-wide support there. Actually since my current IPS is 16:10, I'm use to black bars on the top and bottom even with 16:9 content. Due to my GTX 970 not being that powerful, I've been playing games over the past year at 1080p instead of 1200p. Black bars are simply a way of life in the digital world.

I would assume all ultra-wides have a zoom feature so you can blow-up widescreen movies that are encoded at 16:9 with bars independent of your software.

decisions... decisions.

I just wish there were more sites doing more in-depth reviews like TFT Central... which don't review a whole lot of monitors.

I'll be able to chime in here in a week or so. I've been running an overclockable 1440p IPS for a few years (calibrated using an i1 Display Pro), and while its great for most stuff, gaming in a dark room is pretty rough. I have a CHG70 coming in next week, and I'll be able to decide if the contrast is worth any tradeoffs there might be. I'm not a professional or anything, but I am a bit of an AV nerd and and fairly picky about display quality.

LG LED IPS to Asus LED VA XGVQ
Both are the same size monitor and resolution, the asus VA has better colors but the LG is less pixely, picture is not as soft as the LG and I don't know how to calibrate it on the asus if you can.
Playing games is much nicer on the asus but reading text/web browsing is much better on the LG.
The asus is 144hz which is very nice, the LG only 75hz.
Supposedly the asus XGVQ uses samsung panels.
Viewing angles the same or better, no ghosting. I wish the VA panel had a softer look to it so still images and text look less grainy. I'm not sure if all VA panels are like this.
After trying VA, I don't think I would go back unless a softer image can be tweaked. I would recommend seeking out a very high quality IPS LED panel with 144hz.

I didn't look at VA since I don't care for it, but I did recently research gsync IPS ultrawides. There are two panels out there now which are 34" 3440x1440. The Dell AW3418DW/Acer X34P is what I bought, and is 100Hz native which OC's fine to 120Hz. The other more expensive and newer option is the LG 950G which is basically the same except the panel has a native 120Hz refresh rate and a wider color gamut (which may or may not be a good thing depending on use case since it has no SRGB mode). There's also the LG 950F which is freesync instead of gsync and has a few more features like 144Hz refresh and rudimentary HDR. Both these panels have tftcentral reviews with more info.

That said, if all you're going to be doing is watching movies/videos in the dark and you don't really care about gaming, go ahead and get a VA panel. It will have better blacks at the cost of response time. Or, for that matter, go get a smaller OLED or LCD TV.

Yeah, I leaning towards keeping with an IPS panel. Although I have an nVidia GPU (and might again soon depending on the RTX 2060), G-sync drives up the price too much.

They only seem to put G-sync in the riced up gaming monitors... mainly VA too since there are few 34" ultra-wides with 1440p IPSs that go over 60 Hz without overclocking the monitor.

I've been using the Dell/Alienware AW3418DW for the past year and it's wonderful having a monitor tick all the boxes for me. AH-IPS, 3440x1440, 120Hz, 1900R, 4ms input lag, G-Sync with a super sturdy metal stand. I'd say a minimum of a 1080Ti is needed to run UW 1440p at 100-120Hz at high/ultra settings.

I also have used an LG 34UC88-B (IPS, 3440x1440, 75Hz, 1800R, Freesync) and there's no big difference between Freesync and G-Sync. My only concern is that AMD has no GPUs that can handle 3440x1440 at around 100+Hz, so it would be disappointing to use. Navi is just around the corner though, so it may finally be worth getting.
