Whenever you upgrade to a new gaming monitor, it is important to understand what display technology is and which one best suits your gaming needs. When buying a new monitor, you may need to consider many factors - resolution, panel type, refresh rate, response time, and backlight technology are all factors to consider. However, if you don't fully understand the latest display technology, all of these terms and different technologies can get a bit confusing. Therefore, IPS vs. LEDs: what are they and what is the difference?
gamers can use many different screen technologies, so it is very important to be able to distinguish the main differences between IPS and IPS. LED display, this is where WePC comes in.
Before we discuss the main differences, let's take a look at the basics of IPS and LED screen technology.
Let's start from the beginning: What is IPS?
IPS stands for in-plane switching and is a panel technology for LCD (liquid crystal display) displays. Historically, IPS displays have provided superior image quality and viewing angles compared to TN and VA alternatives. The
IPS monitor is also known for having the best color accuracy, making it a great choice for people who don’t just play games. These additional advantages of IPS displays are also accompanied by additional costs, which makes them generally the most expensive of the different panel technologies.
Simply put, an IPS monitor is a monitor equipped with an IPS panel. As mentioned above, technology has its own unique advantages and usually leads to higher prices of alternatives. That being said, we will detail the complex differences between TN, VA, and IPS later in this article. Before that, let's take a look at LEDs.
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which is a display backlight technology. This display technology uses LEDs to illuminate the content of each pixel. LED technology displays provide a brighter screen and consume less power than other displays.
Technically, all LED screens are LCD screens, but not all LCD screens are LED. This may seem confusing, but basically both types of displays use liquid crystal to help create images, the difference is the backlight.
LED displays tend to be cheaper, have a wider dimming range, are generally considered very reliable, have higher dynamic contrast, and have less impact on the environment.
Now that we have a better understanding of the names of IPS and LED displays, let's take a look at their different areas:
Starting from their different main areas, IPS displays are a type of panel technology. On the other hand, LED displays are backlight technology.
Although they are technically different, the two may be compatible enough to work together. Until around 2014, plasma displays were the most common, until LCD took over. It's worth noting again that both LED and IPS displays use LCD (liquid crystal display). IPS
displays provide images of a certain quality, which means that they require more power to keep up with all screen activity.
LED displays can display brighter displays, but they actually consume less power than IPS displays. This is what makes LED displays the most common LCD backlight technology today.
In the past, it can be said that the response time of IPS monitors is much longer, but the recently released version shows that the response time in this area has been drastically reduced and the shipping time of the top model is so low as 1 millisecond. Consumers targeted by IPS displays do not prioritize slower response times, while LED displays are usually the favorite of competitive FPS gamers.
LED displays, usually equipped with TN or VA panels, have a low response time of 1ms, but due to worse viewing angles and color accuracy, we see more and more competitive gamers turning to IPS with the improvement of IPS technology.
Can you really notice the slow response time? Although 510 milliseconds may seem small, fast games like CS: GO, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Fortnite, Overwatch, and other FPS games often show significant differences. This is because the IPS monitor must process the image accordingly before returning it to the monitor.
Today's monitor has it all, extremely fast response time, high-quality IPS panel, 240Hz + refresh rate, etc., giving gamers a full range of visual enjoyment.
Like response time, IPS panels have historically been much slower than TN and VA alternatives. They seem to pay more attention to color accuracy, viewing angle, and color gamut, while TN prioritizes speed. In other words, with the continuous development of display technology, IPS displays are closing the speed gap between themselves and other panel technologies.
Today, IPS displays can provide a refresh rate of up to 360 Hz, making them one of the fastest displays on the market. With Over Drive and MPRT, combine it with a low 1 millisecond response time and you have a responsive panel with accurate colors.
Regardless of the angle you look at, the IPS monitor allows you to look at the monitor from a wide angle (178 ° to be precise) without seeing color changes. This means that you can view the monitor anywhere without worrying about color changes. The
LED display may not have the advantage of a wide viewing angle, but it can guarantee a brighter display in every corner.
IPS technology provides clear and sharp images through bright colors, and at the same time has better color consistency, you will get a more satisfying experience.
LED displays tend to be inferior in accurate black reproduction, but still have deep contrast. The viewing angle of the LED screen is also very poor, and if you are not sitting directly in front of it, it will cause serious damage and make the colors look strange. Perspective
For FPS games or budget situations.
For those who like AAA single player games, or if you are creating content, video editing or image editing, it is recommended that you purchase an IPS monitor for clear and clear results.
As mentioned above, IPS displays consume more power and provide clear images. This additional power consumption means that these types of LED displays also emit more heat than similar products.
Although LED displays have a brighter screen, they still have lower power consumption and lower heat output.
They may be technically different, but you can see that a few technologies combine the two technologies:
After looking at the differences between IPS and LED technology types, it is not fair to compare the two. After all, one is a liquid crystal panel and the other is a liquid crystal backlight. In the final analysis, they are different.
In any case, IPS monitors are very suitable for graphics games, content creation or professional editing of images and videos. Clear image display and high-quality colors may be very suitable for games, but it may not be worth it for pure FPS competitive gamers. The
IPS monitor is considered the best and healthiest choice for your eyes. No matter how sharp your viewing angle is, the colors remain vivid and delicate, and the lines remain beautiful and bright. For example, if you invite some friends to watch a movie on your computer, even the person sitting on the edge of the room can clearly see the picture. The
VA panel is good too, but when viewed from anywhere other than neutral, other types of panels will display varying colors and drastically changed contrast, which can make your eyes work too hard to understand the image. Ultimately, this extra work can cause damage to your peepers, causing eye strain and even headaches. The IPS
panel also provides more consistent edge-to-edge brightness, which can really help your eyes deal with those monster gatherings behind the table. The
IPS display uses an LCD (liquid crystal display) design, but as we mentioned earlier, the
LED display also uses an LCD screen to create images. The difference is that IPS LCD monitors use fluorescent panels as backlights, while LEDs use, you guessed it...light-emitting diodes as backlights.
Technically speaking, LED displays should be called LCD LEDs. This will eliminate a lot of confusion for consumers, but in this fast-paced dog world, who has time to buy three more cards?
what is an LCD screen? In short, it consists of molecules with two behaviors. Usually, they are dense and unstructured, but when exposed to electricity, they swell in a very organized and equal way. The
VA panel is considered a compromise between other types of panels. It's not that they are bad, but they have some of the advantages of other panels. For example, the viewing angle and color profile of VA are almost equivalent to those of IPS displays, and their response time is similar to that of TA panels.
Of course, in this case, the old adage "knowledge of everything, know everything" couldn't be more appropriate. It does everything in a respectable way, but it doesn't do anything like a professional type monitor.
In addition, the IPS panel has been advancing by leaps and bounds since its inception and no longer suffers from low response times, which makes it a very attractive prospect for gamers, creatives and professionals looking for high-quality workstations.
IPS is very suitable for games, but the benefits it brings to the desktop are not important for certain types of games. For example, if you like a competitive FPS, you are unlikely to appreciate the rich colors of IPS, and you will not view your monitor from a certain angle. You will be the headshot left, right, front and center!
Gamers of this type prefer fast screens rather than delicious screens. For example, TA panels tend to have faster response times and faster refresh rates. The combination of a higher refresh rate and a powerful GPU means higher frames per second. If you get the frames per second advantage over your opponent, you will definitely claim "W".
Having said that, modern IPS monitors tend to compete tit-for-tat with TA in terms of refresh rate; however, they are much more expensive due to advanced image quality.
IPS has always had solid graphics and visually stunning gameplay - think RDR2, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, and Valhalla, and even Skyrim to a degree. These types of open world adventure games are all about immersive gaming experiences, and IPS panels do their best to reduce the boundaries between the real world and the gaming world. The
IPS monitor is also very suitable for gamers who do not necessarily like the entire gaming chair. It's great if you like this, but some of us just like to relax and play in bed or from different angles.
The LED display in this area has a frame. The service life of an IPS panel is approximately 50,000 hours, which is equivalent to approximately 6 years. This is a pretty good lifespan, especially today when technology is developing at the speed of light. Chances are, after using the same monitor for 6 years, you're eager to upgrade anyway. On the other hand, the life of the
LED is between 80,000 and 120,000 hours. Assuming we use a computer for eight hours a day, we expect the longest lifespan to be around 20 years, which is crazy and frankly not necessary. Due to advances in games and components over the past 20 years, this aging monitor will not be compatible with any other hardware.
If we have not mentioned that the useful life of the monitor, regardless of the type of monitor, depends largely on the quality of its components, then we are very wrong.
Are they ... or them? Technically speaking, the ghost image that may appear on the IPS LCD screen is not a burnout.
Burn-in only refers to the situation where the electron beam burns the phosphor coating of the CRT monitor. In other words, burn or not, the problem is the same. In the context of IPS LED, it is called image persistence. Remember before we mentioned that the molecules in the LCD have two states or behaviors? Well, when the molecules cannot return to their relaxed and unstructured state when exposed to electric current, the persistence of the image occurs.
But don't worry, friends; this is a simple fix. If the problem does not resolve itself, display a complete blank screen for up to an hour to restore all molecules to their natural state.
