In a perfect world, a screen’s brightness output should be equal throughout the entire panel. Regrettably, this is not a perfect world, but the lower the variation the less chances you will notice overly bright or dark sections on the screen. For the consumer LCD marketplace, a variance of 10% is our gold standard, but anything below 15% can be considered excellent as we doubt anyone will notice a -7.5 to +7.5 variation. A variation above 15% – but below 24% – can be considered adequate, but anything above this does not meet our basic minimum standards.
Even though we would have preferred to have seen a sub 10-percent variance between the panel’s light and darker areas, 12-percent is pretty great for this price range. It’s better than many of the higher-end monitors that we have reviewed in the last 12-18 months.
Ideally, a screen’s real world response rate would be so fast that motion blur, ‘ghosting’, ‘reverse-ghosting’ would be a thing of the past. No matter how fast the action displayed all images would be represented in pristine condition similar in quality to a static image. This is not a perfect world, but the less amount of blurring that occurs, the less chances you will notice the issue in real world scenarios. While the panel’s response rate (ms) and frame rate (Hz) can give a fairly rough idea of how much blurring to expect, it is not the be-all and end-all.
To this end, we have taken PRAD’s Pixel Persistence Analyzer ‘Streaky Pictures’ program and – using a high speed camera – captured exactly how much and what kind of motion blur you can expect from a given monitor
As this monitor is oriented towards professionals, and not gaming enthusiasts, it is not unsurprising to see it exhibit a rather large amount of ghosting. This really is par for the course for 8-bit IPS monitors, which prioritize color fidelity and static image clarity over fast moving images. If this is a deal breaker, the NX-VUE27P is not going to be a good – let alone great – choice for you.
