This monitor uses 6-bit eIPS panel (model LM240WU8-SLA2 16.7M color from 6bit + a-frc) by LG and does not really have the greatest color.

Two of these for my home office I'm finishing up or wait for a better deal on Black Friday? I'll also use them for personal use but I don't do gaming.

I just got this monitor two days ago. Wow what a huge improvement over the 10 year old ultrasharp I had. The colors are great out the box. Games nice on rocket league and human fall flat. My videos color looks correct for once. If it lasts and lasts for years to come I think this is a keeper

Well this was a huge bust. They sent me two monitors instead of one by mistake. First one I open has a huge stuck red pixel right in my eye line. Second one has a dead pixel top right and a yellow tint/cast over the bottom left third of the screen.

I'm sure I'm just unlucky, but this pretty crap QA for what I'm assuming are LG screens internally. Hate to send them both back, but this is just unacceptable.

Not quite as slick of a deal, but this monitor can be had for $139.99 (+tax, free shipping) from Staples. The price is now $159.99 and Staples is offering $20 off online orders of $80 or more.

https://www.staples.com/Dell-Ultr...uct_486635

I'm tempted to buy at this price to match my first one at $80 (after AMEX discount).

That's a work monitor, and it has wide gamut, but it doesn't have good color. It's IPS, so it has washed out color and grey blacks which turns into low shadow detail.

What you really want is a curved VA panel, if you're after GOOD LOOKING color.

The 30bit IPS is generally for office photo work, people CONFUSE that with a monitor which looks good. That is NOT the case. IPS image looks awful because of low contrast ratio. IPS has properties convenient for photo work, and photo work does not require good contrast ratio or a good looking image, it only requires uniformity (as a convenience) for editing photos for web or print.

IPS color isn't washed out, the backlight bleed is only an issue in a very dark room when watching films with black bars. It just doesn't apply to computing, VA tv's are cheap for a reason, its not magic, many are quite low end, and the same range applies to IPS. The only reason TV's use VA at all is because consumers wouldn't understand backlight bleed, and as said, different use case. VA is worse in everything else but speed.

I don't photo edit so I really don't care about accuracy, but people can see the difference in color reproduction, oled on phones and tv's being a prime example. I have both ah-ips and ah-ips with a high gamut backlight, there is a difference.

Just as there is a difference between older panel ips like this e-ips and more modern/higher end panels. If you are basing it off this monitor, it just doesn't apply, e-ips is extremely old. The only reason they keep making it today is the old factory lines keep churning them out for low end "ips" panels, its 10 year old technology. The clue is in the name, u2412 = 2012

You have a complete misunderstanding of display tech.

The goal of good image quality is High peak brightness while maintaining low black levels simultaneously.

This is why there are no high-end IPS tvs, because IPS simply can not produce the dark tones necessary while maintaining high peak brightness levels.

It all comes down to contrast ratio. IPS has at best 1000-1500:1 , while VA can do ~6000:1

IPS glow affects all brightnesses under all conditions. IPS produce washed out color and very little image depth. Most ips Monitors are in the low 1000:1 range for contrast, which is why they are ALL terrible in image quality.

This is subjective consumer marketing level quality. You can't have people returning tv's because the bars glow, but it has no relevance to display quality in general, high end IPS color is better than VA color, there is a reason why VA didn't just render IPS obsolete. Computing use case simply doesn't revolve around staring at mostly black high contrast images, most of the screen will be bright no matter what.

That is not true whatsoever, IPS on average has significantly worse image quality in nearly every category except viewing angle.

being VA or IPS does not affect color accuracy, but it does affect contrast. So given same backlight and build elements, VA will display fundamentally more total gamut volume because it can produce deeper colors.
