Im kind of in the middle of choosing one
The mva 32" is 100$ a second hand around 2 years of usage 10 bit can be oc to 72-75hz
The ips 32" is 200$ brand new 75hz at base come with freesync and can be oc to 80hz~84hz
Which will give me better video and color quality? I've already have some high hz monitor i just want to play some offline rpg, non competive games and watching youtube + web browsing.

All else being equal:

VA = better contrast ratio.

IPS = better color reproduction.

Since you already have a high refresh panel, get the MVA panel. It'll be good for movie and offline games. But check the reviews since it's old. Color saturation might not be as good new ones. I assume it would be 1440p or 4k? 1080p on 32" is laughable. Avoid at must.

I had to do 1080p on a 42" plasma until just the other day because of... a stupid incident with my other monitor which relegated me to having just the plasma as an option.

I started to get used to it... but it was never good. My god, 1440p is beautiful again. So yeah, would not recomend. That res is horrible on 32" and up.

IPS if you are into media production. MVA will give you that nice underwater sun rays effect. IPS won't be able to replicate it without looking cloudy.

They are both 1440p, sincd i will use 5700xt for them both which i believe would give me over 7x fps most of game so freesync is a must though?

they're the aoc q3277fqe amva 10 bits 1-2 year old used, the new one is aoc q3279vwfd8
i haven't had any frreesync monitor or use freesync.......is it worth it ? ........

Honestly, I'd get a va tv. I wouldn't mind the sticker price. Yes, they can arouse astigmatism effects viewed off tilt, but you can literally use it in a fully sun dazed room and not have two worries.

Artwork always looks better on VA because of the superior contrast. For RPGs that are artwork-heavy and often involve darker colour palettes, this is where VA's advantage over IPS is strongest.

Yes, IPS may be more accurate colour by a tiny fraction, but VA colours are still vibrant and rich. People don't buy OLED televisions for colour accuracy, they buy them because OMG LOOK HOW DEEP THOSE BLACKS ARE. VA isn't quite OLED for black levels by after sitting in front of a VA for a while you will instantly realise what's missing when you move back to IPS.

The only thing to be careful of is response time. Some VA panels are awful at dark transitions, so my advice would be to check it out in person if you can, or at least get a decent review of it first.

Correct, you don't really want to go any lower than 75~80 PPI and if you do, make sure you sit at the other end of the room.

This topic has too little info. What panels are we really looking at ? A 200 dollar second hand MVA doesn't sound encouraging but for all we know its a fantastic panel. The 300 dollar IPS one could be bog standard crap for all we know.

Just panel tech and refresh says quite precisely nothing if you want an informed choice. The refresh rate difference between the two is irrelevant.. judge them both as 60hz (or 75) panels. After all, pixel clock OC is not guaranteed and skipped frames happen.


If you don't know or want a simple piece of advice: let the room lighting conditions be your guide. If you play in dim lit room more: get the VA. If brightly lit, get the IPS. That way the panel tech comes out best for each situation. IPS glow isn't visible in brighter ambient light, and VA's contrast and blacks work better in a darker room.

EDIT: Nvm I saw your model numbers now

Get this one

The VA is not for gaming at all. 5ms, it will smear and be slow.

It is also very likely to have noticeable deltaE errors which isn't pretty. Needs professional calibration tools to get right. Stay clear. This is NOT a gaming panel. It also seems to use a non standard type of coating that is reflective.

And the more I read, the worse it gets. Stuck pixels, red and blue lines of dead/stuck pixels appearing weeks after first use, backlight bleed (uncommon for VA)... this looks like a total panel lottery.

While I generally agree, OP already has a high refresh monitor for I assume high fps games.

This is for atmospheric single player games and movies where VA shine best.

And 5ms shouldn't be a problem. Noticeable blurriness happens when pixel response time is outside the refresh window. At 75hz and OC at 82hz the refresh window is 13.33ms and 12.20ms. The pixel response time as advertised is well under that. Hell there are loads of us who grew up with 5ms response time monitors before 1ms/2ms mumbo jumbo became popular.

Also some people would love reflective coating. Usually matte coating reduces reflections at slight cost of color accuracy/vibrancy.

And all the rest are typical monitor shenanigans that is irrelevant to panel type. Though I agree it's a cause of concern.

But at just $100 I'd say to OP just go for it.

Response times. Here is an example of the Samsung C32HG70 which is VA, too, and high refresh.

1581771809849.png


Smearing occurs in the darker hue transitions, as observable here it is well above the advertised ms; the advertised ms is usually in fact the fastest transition reported. This is a common trait of VA. And since this AOC monitor is not high refresh you don't get any overdrive modes to mitigate it.

This monitor will smear. Simple. The IPS alternative will give a much more stable, pleasant picture. Especially at 60hz and with no strobe or overdrive. You are not wrong about VA's perks, but its wrong to ignore its drawbacks, and there are lots of shitty VA"s around; far more of them and the drawback is more pronounced than your average IPS. IPS is very stable in every metric, the panel lottery there applies only to backlight bleed and glow. Yes, static contrast is a big plus for VA... but not when the rest is meh.

Basically if you cheap out on VA, you're better off getting anything else at the same price point. A good VA has high static contrast (not the measly 2500:1 you see nowadays), preferably BFI/Strobe, a high max luminance of 350cd/m or better, and low DeltaE error (below 5).

This VA has none of it.
