I think perhaps the most distressing thing in my life is the certainty that I will never have a perfect monitor. I had lived long enough with backlight bleed around my last monitor, blue haze around the edges, and a crappy cloud effect/backlight being nonuniform that was easily noticeable when dragging windows around. I had to return it, but I knew all along the one I got back would be just as bad.

 

Replacement was going great at first, other than the fact that it was an obvious refub of some shitlords old one, bezel covered in scratches. No backlight bleed, much better backlight uniformity. I rejoiced as fixed the one stuck pixel it has. Now a new problem has arisen, colour/contrast uniformity, something my old one didn't have. After much distress wondering why I couldn't get the colours looking like my old one, I realized that the contrast shits the bed the lower down the screen you go, take something light grey, take something white, put them both at the top of the screen, drag them to the bottom of the screen and they both become white as though by magic. 

 

I can hardly describe the feeling. Overwrought by utter disgust at how whites become slightly darker at the top of the screen, it is almost too much to take. I demand perfection, yet I know in reality it is a shining plateau of illusion, such a thing is unattainable. Right now, I'm having to look at text that further up is darker than down here, it makes me sick.

 

Fuck monitors.

If anyone actually says they have a perfect monitor they are lying.

Stop getting shitty monitors sounds like great advice. If you return a bad monitor, and know you're going to get a bad one, why complain? You already know what's going to happen, so it shouldn't be a surprise at all.

 

Get a quality monitor and you'll get a quality experience. I have a 19" I-Inc monitor that I got as a christmas present back when the norm were square ones instead of the wide screen rectangles that are the norm now. I've had zero problems with it, and it's going on 6 years now, without a single problem. However, it won't last forever, and I know it will eventually start having problems, and when it does I'll replace it with a reputable brand so that I won't have problems for another 6-7 years.

It's a Asus VG278H, TN, so its always going to be crap.

 

I've not had a perfect display in my life, aside from CRT's.

My Dell monitor is fine....

 

 

Samsung makes the best displays, hands down. TVs, Monitors, Phones, if it's a Samsung and it has a screen, the screen is likely pretty good.

Want to appreciate your current monitor?
Buy this and use it for a year.

No they dont. Samsung makes very good panels, but they dont use their panels in their own monitors (logical, right?) They use cheaper panels made in taiwan iirc. 

 

Dells IPS monitors are good, and apples monitors are good. If you want a fast response time, your monitor is going to look like shit. If you want good color, you're going to be spending a lot of money.

That doesn't sound right. My S4 has a gorgeous screen, my Samsung TV is beautiful, and if I had the money I'd buy a Samsung monitor because they are the nicest ones I've seen.

Nice Samsung, Benq, Nice Dell's.... all good screens. If you want a good monitor you're going to have to invest a couple hundred at least for one if not somewhere around 600 for a "perfect" picture. Dont forget to get something to calibrate too for 100+
