IPS vs VA 100Hz+ UltraWides

We’ve recently reviewed a number of 100Hz+ UltraWide monitors with VA panels. To try to help users focus their thoughts and decide which of these may be best for their own uses, we created this comparison thread on our forum. Useful though this thread is for comparing the various VA options, we sort of brushed over the comparison with the IPS models (Acer X34/X34A and ASUS PG348Q).

Samsung C27H711 and C32H711 WQHD VA monitors

If there are two things Samsung has really embraced with their recent monitors, it would be the use of a curved rather than a flat screen and the use of the VA panel type. The C27H711 and C32H711 (C27H711Q and C32H711Q plus regional suffixes) of the CH71 series embrace both of these trends. In terms of styling, Samsung have again gone for the minimalistic modern look shared by the likes of their C34F791 and C27F591.

ViewSonic VX4380-4K with ‘4K’ IPS panel

Back in May 2016 we looked at the Philips BDM4350UC, a model which really appeals to some users due to its size, the glossy screen surface and its IPS-type panel. The ViewSonic VX4380-4K makes use of this same or a very similar panel, housing it differently and using a different set of assistive electronics (there is, after all, a lot more to a monitor than simply a panel).

Samsung C24FG70 and C27FG70 144Hz curved VA monitors with FreeSync

It has been several years since Samsung produced a high refresh rate monitor, with their glossy SA750 and SA950 models offering something a bit different to everything else on the market today. Indeed the S27A750D has served us very well as a reference display for comparison monitor responsiveness. The Samsung C24FG70 (C24FG70FQ alternative designation) and C27FG70 (C27FG70FQ alternative designation) are new 23.5” and 27″ members of the CFG70 series, boasting curved 144Hz VA panels.

Acer X27 ‘4K’ UHD model with 144Hz IPS-type panel

Users looking for a high refresh rate on their monitor have so far had to make do with resolutions that are lower than ‘4K’ UHD (3840 x 2160). For users wishing to display their content in UHD, they’ve had to settle for 60Hz or just a very mild overclock beyond this. The ASUS PG27UQ was one of two models shown off (or at least mentioned) at CES 2017 sporting a 144Hz ‘4K’ panel.

AOC PDS241 and PDS271 designer monitors

The AOC I2481FXH and I2781FH have proven themselves attractive choices for users wanting a stylish and minimalistic (dare we say ‘artistic’) looking screen, with good all-round performance. The AOC PDS241 and PDS271 continue this quest for style, with a little design help from Studio F.A. Porsche – better known for their cars but also dabbling in a bit of appliance and technology design every now and then.
