✨ Highlights📊 Transcript
The video compares an OLED gaming monitor with an IPS gaming monitor, highlighting the differences in brightness, color accuracy, and price.
The OLED monitor is slightly dimmer than the IPS monitor, but the new Asus OLED is noticeably brighter than the LG OLED.
The color accuracy on the Asus monitor is better out of the box compared to the LG monitor.
The design of the monitors is visually different, but they have the same panel and overall experience.
The Asus monitor is considered the better package due to its brightness, but it is slightly more expensive than the LG monitor.
The video explains the concept of motion blur and how it affects the perception of ghosting on monitors, highlighting that high refresh rates or backlight strobing techniques can help overcome it.
Monitors with higher refresh rates or backlight strobing techniques have less sample and hold effect, reducing motion blur.
Comparing a 360Hz IPS and 240Hz OLED panel, the IPS panel has more ghosting, while the OLED panel is nearly perfect.
However, when tracking the image with the correct shutter speed, the motion blur experienced on both panels is similar.
The 240Hz OLED panel is as good as it can get in terms of motion blur, with 0.1 millisecond response times and zero percent overshoot.
The OLED monitor provides a better image quality and is preferred for gaming, especially in bright rooms or for single-player games with HDR.
The 27aqn monitor is preferred for a smoother experience at 360Hz.
The OLED monitor has superior image quality and is difficult to go back from.
OLED is the way forward for gaming monitors, with potential for 360Hz and 480Hz in the future.
The OLED monitor is also a better choice for single-player games with HDR capabilities.
00:00all right so here I have two of the best
00:01gaming monitors that you can currently
00:03buy both made by Asus both are 27 inches
00:06but this one is OLED and this one is IPS
00:09the OLED is also 240Hz well this one is
00:11360. now I've tested them out pretty
00:14extensively played a bunch of hours on
00:16them and today I just want to share My
00:18overall thoughts on them you know how
00:19they differ how they kind of feel a
00:21little bit different to play on and also
00:22which one I'm going to be using moving
00:24forward now the OLED that I've been
00:25using mostly is the one that I've first
00:27reviewed that's the LG 27
00:30gr95qe but the ones that I'll be talking
00:32about mostly in this video is the new
00:35pg27aqdm basically it's the exact same
00:38panel same response times very similar
00:40overshoot although the Asus is slightly
00:42better the image quality also looks
00:44identical to the LG at the same settings
00:46but the new Asus OLED does get
00:48noticeably brighter while the LG tops
00:50out at around 210 nits with the new
00:53firmware update the Asus can reach just
00:55under 250. now personally I didn't have
00:57a huge problem with the brightness on
00:59the LG uh I found myself using it at
01:01about 85 to 90 percent at the same time
01:03I don't like gaming on a super bright
01:05display it kind of wears out my eyes
01:07really quickly and my gaming setup is
01:09not that bright to be honest but for
01:11those who do want that extra brightness
01:12it is definitely a nice Boost from the
01:15Asus that extra 40 nits of brightness is
01:17actually pretty noticeable the color
01:19accuracy on the Asus is also much better
01:21out of the box the designs are also
01:23quite different visually as well just
01:25really depends on what you prefer but
01:26other than that it's the same panel and
01:28aside from the brightness and stock
01:30colors it's basically the same
01:31experience so the Asus is a superior
01:34package for this panel it is the better
01:36monitor mostly because it gets brighter
01:37but it is however slightly more
01:39expensive what I really want to talk
01:41about today though is OLED versus IPS
01:43specifically these two monitors from
01:45Asus right here and it is a tough
01:48decision like these are extremely top
01:50tier gaming monitors I can see why I'm
01:51getting a bunch of questions about them
01:53but they're both kind of topped here in
01:55their own ways and I mean we've got to
01:57start off with the oleds image quality
01:59and I know I said it in the review of
02:01the LG but it's only fair that I mention
02:03it again the image that you get out of
02:05the OLED is just simply amazing it's not
02:08even about those deep Inky blacks which
02:10you've probably heard time and time
02:11again I'd actually say it's mostly the
02:13mid-range in terms of contrast that I
02:15enjoy most about the OLED that's where
02:17you really get the separation you know
02:19compared to IPS like in some areas where
02:22the IPS can look muddy or hazy the OLED
02:24looks Punchy and more 3D and yeah in my
02:27opinion that's the area of contrast
02:29which has the most impact when it comes
02:31to gaming visibility and stuff like that
02:33it has this kind of unfiltered look to
02:35it like you can reach out and grab what
02:37you're seeing IPS on the other hand you
02:39definitely feel like you're looking at a
02:41screen now look in isolation the IPS
02:43still looks pretty good on its own and
02:45certainly by high refresh rate gaming
02:47monitor standards it's actually one of
02:49the best but the second you put it next
02:51to the OLED you can really see the
02:53difference but now let's talk about what
02:54these monitors actually feel like to
02:55play on you know how does the difference
02:57in ghosting feel what is the difference
02:58like in terms of the refresh straight in
03:00the response times and ultimately which
03:02one just feels the fastest to play on
03:04now I like competitive games OverWatch 2
03:06for example is just like the only thing
03:08that I've been playing at the moment and
03:09I've got to say it's like the perfect
03:11game to stress test and test out these
03:13displays and yeah 360hz IPS versus 240Hz
03:17OLED they do feel different so the
03:19response times of these monitors are
03:21very different the OLED is virtually
03:23instant 0.1 milliseconds whereas the IPS
03:26sits at around one and a half now this
03:29value represents how fast the pixels can
03:31switch to a new color this isn't related
03:33to refresh rate or input lag or anything
03:36like that it's purely how long that
03:38pixel transition takes here's a graph
03:40basically showing what I mean this is
03:42real data of the pg27aqn on the left and
03:45the 27 aqdm OLED on the right both
03:48switching from black to gray the OLED
03:50switches virtually instantly whereas the
03:52IPS takes 1.5 milliseconds again this is
03:56the pixel response time and as always
03:58faster is better you can also see that
04:00the IPS has quite a bit of overshoot for
04:03this particular transition whereas the
04:04OLED has none at all so that would
04:07result in what we know as artifacting or
04:09inverse ghosting so zero millisecond
04:11response times what does that mean in
04:13practice well the 240Hz OLED because the
04:15pixels can switch to a new color
04:17virtually instantly that means you have
04:19basically no ghosting at all like
04:21extremely minimal ghosting that means
04:23that every new frame you're basically
04:25just seeing that new clean frame you're
04:27not seeing pixels trying to kind of
04:29switch color in time from previous
04:30frames in other words ghosting which you
04:33do actually still see on the IPS despite
04:36that still having a really fast response
04:38time of 1.5 milliseconds really
04:40important to note though zero ghosting
04:42does not mean zero motion blur when
04:44we're talking about ghosting we're
04:46purely talking about whether there are
04:48pixels lagging behind in the current
04:50frame if you were to take a snapshot in
04:52time for example or record some super
04:54high speed footage could you see
04:56previous frames in the current frame if
04:58you can that's ghost and as you can see
05:01in these examples the 360 Hertz IPS
05:03clearly has more ghosting than the 240Hz
05:05OLED but when we're talking about motion
05:07blow we're also additionally talking
05:09about how your eyes track and interpret
05:12that motion on screen and kind of
05:14decipher this series of still images
05:15which is what you're seeing right now so
05:18for example think of a perfect overhead
05:21panel with zero millisecond response
05:23times but at just 60 hertz the monitor
05:25would be delivering perfect frames one
05:28by one and effectively there would be no
05:30ghosting you know we could take a
05:31snapshot in time of any frame and it
05:33would look perfect but as your eyes
05:35track the images the perceived motion
05:38blur would actually be terrible so again
05:40zero ghosting technically perfect frames
05:43but you still see massive blur this is
05:46due to the way that monitors sample and
05:47hold each frame and how your eyes
05:50interpret that has some
05:52extremely good explanations on how this
05:54works we could go a lot deeper but in a
05:57nutshell it explains why our eyes still
05:59see motion blur even on a lightning
06:01quick 240Hz OLED the only way to
06:03overcome this really is with high
06:05refresh rates or with backlight strobing
06:07techniques like a diac or ulmb with
06:09higher refresh rates the sample and hold
06:11effect isn't as bad and with backlight
06:13strobing you're somewhat overcoming it
06:15altogether so then comparing 360hz IPS
06:18and the 240Hz OLED if we take a snapshot
06:21of what the panels are doing on this
06:23moving UFO test we can actually see that
06:25the IPS does in fact have more ghosting
06:27I mean the OLED on the other hand is
06:29pretty much perfect but when we move the
06:32camera to track the image with the
06:33correct shutter speed mimicking what you
06:35would actually see with your eyes as you
06:37track the image the motion blur that
06:39you'd see and experience on either panel
06:41is actually very similar so as far as
06:43the 240Hz Outlet is concerned it's
06:45actually as good as the 240Hz OLED can
06:48ever get I mean we have 0.1 millisecond
06:50response times zero percent overshoot
06:52insane image quality I mean again at 240
06:55hertz we really can't go much further
06:58than what we have here so as a 240Hz
07:00monitor it's like as good as it's ever
07:02going to get again the only thing
07:04missing for sweaty Gamers like myself is
07:06a backlight strobing implementation that
07:08would help make the panel look even
07:09smoother but these panels don't really
07:11have the brightness budget to do that so
07:13if we're comparing these two monitors
07:14both at 240 hertz I would personally
07:17take the OLED I mean both pixel ghosting
07:19and eye tracking motion blur are lower
07:21and again that better image quality does
07:23lead to a slightly clearer experience
07:25but at 360hz that's where the 27aqn will
07:29be preferred for those that want a
07:30smoother experience you know this is one
07:32of the few monitors on the market where
07:34you can actually toggle up to 360 Hertz
07:36and actually tell that you're getting a
07:37superior experience like you can see
07:39that you are getting those extra frames
07:41and I've said it before you know it's
07:43not a huge difference the difference
07:44between 240 and 360 will never be huge
07:47after all we're comparing it against the
07:49best 240Hz monster on the market but
07:51it's a difference nonetheless and if
07:53you're really chasing smoothness which
07:55realistically is what most people want
07:57out of a fast competitive monitor than
07:59the 2780 qn is the slightly better pick
08:01it's also the better choice if you game
08:03in a seriously bright room like I don't
08:05know if you game outside for example in
08:07the sun this might be actually a viable
08:09solution it's basically the brightest
08:11monitor that I've tested it also has
08:13nvidia's g-sync and reflex module as
08:15well as a pretty cool 25-inch mode for
08:17those who struggle to use the 27 inch
08:19display as for what I'll be using moving
08:21forward well it's actually the OLED you
08:23know I've just been spoiled by the image
08:25quality of this thing making it really
08:26hard to go back and for me at least I
08:29find myself enjoying that aspect more
08:30than the extra bump in smoothness from
08:33the 360hz IPS and at the end of the day
08:35OLED is the way forward for gaming
08:37monitors I'm super excited to see what
08:39these things look like when they reach
08:41360 Hertz and even 480 Hertz in the not
08:44too distant future it is also the better
08:46choice if you play more single player
08:47oriented games especially with HDR both
08:50the Asus and the LG OLED have extremely
08:53good HDR capabilities now in terms of
08:55burning on the OLED I've used the LG for
08:57two months and the Asus for one month
08:59and you know I've played hundreds of
09:01hours on these monitors but there's just
09:03no burn-in at all to report I really
09:05think it's going to take at least a year
09:06and a half of super heavy borderline
09:09abnormal abusive use to start seeing
09:11anything I think with mixed use regular
09:13pixel cleaning you should be okay but we
09:16can only wait and see and I'll be sure
09:17to report anything if I see it the only
09:19other reason not to get the OLED is due
09:21to the weird sub pixel layout which can
09:23make reading text a little Annoying and
09:25slightly blurry to be honest it really
09:28hasn't bothered me that much for
09:30occasional desktop use and browsing but
09:31if this is going to be your only desktop
09:33Monitor and you also use it for a lot of
09:36reading and a lot of typing it's just
09:38not the best choice so if you're
09:39interested in picking them up I will
09:41leave them linked down below as well as
09:42some other recommendations as well if
09:44you're looking for something a little
09:45bit cheaper because yeah these are
09:47pretty expensive to be honest otherwise
09:49hopefully you all enjoyed and I'll see
09:51you all in the next one
