Recently I couldn’t wait and just really wanted to see how a 27" 4K IPS panel from LG “looked” so I ordered a LG 27BN88U-B. But I think the IPS glow on it is maybe ridiculous? Here’s a picture at 0% brightness, totally black background, at night and I lowered the exposure:
The orange blobs at the top are noticeable over all dark content the higher I set the brightness, and somehow the bottom right blob shows much more to me in-person. Anyways, knowing that Spectrums use panels manufactured by LG Display too, I’m curious to know if it’s as present as this, or maybe the matte coating (or lower quality) of this screen exasperates the problem. I’m used to glossy screens on Apple devices. But my old LG ultrawide didn’t have this problem.
RTINGS did a review of the LG 27GP950-B recently which I believe shares the same panel, and its black uniformity scored pretty badly. Still, in a bright room or with some ambient lighting at night, I wonder if it’s fine. I just really want to use a good 4K monitor for work & games on my PC and MBP 16" that isn’t $3000+
