Factors to Consider when Selecting IPS Display Monitors

 IPS Display Monitors There are four types of LCD monitors currently on the market: TN, VA, OLED, and IPS. Each LCD display type has its own set of unique features that make them suitable for various applications, uses, and technical preferences. Today, we’re going to focus on the attributes of IPS displays and certain important factors that should be considered when selecting IPS display monitors for your specific needs.

What Is an IPS Display Monitor?

IPS stands for “in-plane switching”. In the context of digital industrial displays, this means that this technology essentially uses liquid crystals that are perfectly aligned in a parallel pattern with the capability to produce vibrant colours and colour contrast on screen.

Users that require total colour accuracy, consistency, and vibrancy such as photographers, videographers, graphic designers, and gamers will appreciate the sophistication of IPS display technology.

A notable feature of IPS LCD monitors is that they provide an incredibly expansive viewing angle which works to fully showcase vivid colours on every end of the spectrum in ways that other LCD monitors can’t.

What Factors Make IPS Displays Worth Buying?

There are a number of different factors you should take into consideration when selecting an IPS display monitor for your personal or professional use.

Screen Size

Screen size impacts the pixel density of images and videos. Larger screens typically have a smaller pixel density if the resolution is low. Choose the screen size based on what you’re using the monitor for. Common uses such as work or gaming can be supported by a standard screen size for the most part. In fact, you should be able to find a 32-inch 4k monitor for a reasonable price.


High resolutions yield a clearer and more visually appealing image quality than low resolutions. The resolution indicates the number of pixels contained within a monitor using a width x height format. For office workers, a 1920×1080 or 1080p is the minimum requirement, but you can opt for a sharper image quality with a 4k resolution if you prefer.

Panel Type

Compared to TN and VA panel types, IPS LCD monitors have far superior image quality and clarity as well as faster response times. 

Colour Contrast

If excellent colour contrast is a significant priority for your technological needs, then an IPS LCD monitor is the right choice. IPS offers better colour contrast than both VA and TN panels combined. This panel type also boasts excellent colour accuracy, screen consistency, and overall clarity. 

Excellent Contrast Ratio

Although IPS display technology comes at a slightly higher price point than TN panels, there’s a good reason for that. The contrast ratio on an IPS LCD monitor is superb in every sense of the word. Companies rate their product’s contrast ratios to indicate the differences between lighter and darker image elements. Larger ratios typically mean greater image clarity, which is certainly a feature worth noting in high-end IPS LCD displays.
