I have the viewsonic version of this (same guts/panel/stand) and it i great. Shadow detail is second to none, and even beats my M series vizio tv. Lcd overdrive works at medium (slight blue halo) or high (slight yellow/brown halo) at normal speed, if you select ultra low lag mode, then i wouldnt go above medium.

This style (mva 32" 2k) is very picky on 3m cords. I ended up having to use a high quality hdmi cable (still got 144hz) because every 3m display port cable sparkled above 60hz.

Weird that it doesn't say but it's a VA panel. I forget where that stands on the panel-type hierarchy but... Seems good

I think IPS is best for viewing angle and colors but VA is faster response time. TN panel I think is the worst for colors and viewing, they say it's the fastest response time of the lot but I don't know if the response time benefit of TN is enough to outweigh the other drawbacks. VA seems to be better than TN though. https://www.gamersnexus.net/guide...pls-va-crt

Would a Nvidia card be able to get 144hz on this monitor through the Nvidia control panel?

I'm just asking if this monitor is capable of hitting 144hz with a Nvidia card. To my understanding not all monitors can reach 144hz through the Nvidia control panel

People would go on about IPS and I thought - big deal. Then I got an IPS monitor and at least for regular PC viewing, I would not go back. My TN monitor beside the IPS does not display the same. For example viewing some fields on forms with the TN panel, the field outlines and other graphics display more faded or even disappear depending on viewing angle. For games though with a lot of motion and not necessarily staring at static detail, maybe IPS is not as much an issue? I also read VA has some good attributes falling somewhere in between TN and IPS depending on usage.

Yes you can achieve 144hz on this monitor with a nVidia Card, it will just not be able to use Freesync.

Short answer = Magic.

Long answer = The panel adjusts contrast based on data it gathers from the image, while trying to continue to maintain a static contrast ratio. So per say, if a nearly all black image is displayed through the panel, then panel will adjust contrast to brighten up the image. Downside of that scenario is that IF any white / super bright pixels were in that image, it will be 100% washed / bled out (over exposed). A good panel will then readjust those particular pixels to bring them back down.

Essentially all pixel in the panel will be adjusting contrast at all times based on their over / under exposure

Please note that these actions happen in milliseconds and we shouldn't notice it unless the image stays there for an extended period of time

I only own IPS monitors for my personal use. I didn't even know I was doing it but I guess that TN and VA weren't really prevalent until the last couple years. I think for single person gaming focused on performance more than quality a TN or VA panel is good. I'm skeptical that the TN panels are actually 1ms, I feel like it's the same as plasmas saying they were 600hz.

That being said, I have a 24 inch TN panel at work I don't really notice a difference in clarity or color. I only use it for spreadsheets and other office programs though. Never watched any videos or played any games on it

I bought the 27" version of this monitor a few weeks ago and love it. Blown away by the colors on this thing.
