I got curious and took some pics of my current cheap old regular 60 Hz IPS panel that I want to replace soon

1) taken when viewing this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WexJRnud32U

Now obviously the photos amplify the effect by a lot, its not actually a glowing yellow in real life, but still - this is pretty terrible BLB/glow from what Ive seen, right ?

Im just asking because I used this monitor for 2 years now and never knew this existed until recently, even when I view something dark without the room light on (sure the blacks arent a perfect realistic pitch black, but you probably need OLED for that) .. if I lived with this for 2 years then maybe Im exaggerating the issues I might have with a 144Hz IPS panel .. ?

Its all in that eye of the beholder, right ?

You didn't notice this in 2 years? I cannot imagine how this is possible, but if you seriously didn't notice then this not a problem for you, right? You had too see it, there is no way you didn't see it, but maybe you just didn't care or didn't pay attention to it. Or maybe you somehow managed not to view any dark content, watch movies with dark scenes and you played games with no nights or something, but for 2 years... I don't know, like I said this is beyond my imagination

Get your new monitor and see if this effect bothers you, this is all about how it affects your viewing experience, not how photo of monitor looks.

@ Krzych04650 well obviously I see that the black is not truly perfect pitch black and there is some LCD light/backlight or whatever lighting the black corners when viewing something dark, but yes it didnt bother me and I thought that was normal/acceptable

@ BURGER4life eh, just eyeballing it feels like the areas are bigger on mine then on those photos .. but I also have the yellow (yellow = BLB, blue = IPS glow, right ?) only on the right while it has it in all 4 corners
