Yeah, I was looking through that thread. Unfortunately Asus and Acer Predator tend to be the best IPS but as you say, its a lottery. I was very interested in the Samsung C27HG70 but reports of non-existent quality assurance squashed that.
When is Panasonic (or anyone) launching their with dual display cell filter IPS? They made a major announcement years ago but nothing since.
Panasonic monitor? Never.
Panasonic TV? Maybe if they move to it from OLED but they have the best OLED TV right now for TV use, it's all LG OLED anyway in all these TVs but supposedly as always they can order variants and quality bins and there is a crap ton of processing in TVs and tuning to get the image good.
HiSense I think has dual layer TV now.
Otherwise dual layer IPS is only in those 30" movie production reference monitors, replacing OLED in those, yep, replacing OLED variant.
Asus, Acer, ... it's all the same AUO panel in different revisions/mounting holes.
C27HG70 was awful quality wise, had 5 of those didn't try for 6th, Amazon hated me enough already
Smearing VA, poor viewing angles, etc. typical VA, but the worst is was quality really, curving ruined that panel quality wise and I can't stand curved monitors anyway, not buying curved probably ever again. It was nice on paper but to buy and use not so.
Would love a 180Hz+ dual layer 1440p IPS, flat. Not gonna happen anytime soon though. Been ages now and there is still not a single decent 100Hz+ really without major compromises.
Maybe the newer or even older GB, I added the newer to OP not long ago, or wait for this LG/EVE to show up in shops at a good price.
800:1 vs 1200:1... one might actually notice that especially side by side.
I have, according to reviews, 1350:1 and I would gladly have 10x, 100x, 1000x more any time of the day. Something like a VA 2700:1 is not really worth it considering the endless drawbacks of VA :/
