When you are shopping for gaming monitors, do not automatically assume that they are all the same. There are subtle differences in the kinds of features and functions that you will see. For instance, there are also a few differences in the types of VA Monitors that are available. The following is a brief overview of the main advantages of having an Aiptasia or other VA based monitor.
Response Time There are two different measurements of response time; rapid, or gaming like and slow response time. You should always buy a VA monitor that has the best possible response time. It does not matter if you have a fast gaming PC or a moderate system. If you purchase a VA Panel with the lowest possible response time, you can be assured of the smoothest gaming experience.
Wide Screen Space One of the major advantages of Aiptasia based monitors is their wide screen space. If your desktop space is small, you can easily use Aiptasia based monitors as their wide screen space will make it easy to view multiple objects on the screen at the same time. This is much better than what you get with normal CRT monitors. Most of the CRT monitors have very narrow screens. This means that you will either need to view multiple items on one screen or move your mouse to another area of the screen.
Fast Response Times One of the biggest advantages of Aiptasia VA monitors is that they have fast response times. They respond quickly and will never let you down when it comes to gaming or running various programs. So whether you are playing a first person shooter or a complex program like Photoshop, you can be sure that you will not have problems with its speed.
High Contrast Ratio The contrast ratio is what we use to determine whether a monitor is good or not. There is a popular debate between the display's ability to display blacks and the ability to display gradients. With a VA technology, we can expect a high contrast ratio because the pixels are fully black, there is no gradation and the response times are long.
Panel Type You might want to know that there are four main types of VA panels; full wave-guides, curved wave-guides, wafer thin panels and solid panel type. While most people will consider curved and wafer-thin panels the best, there are in fact other types that also perform well. Some of these include flexi-glass and pentagonal panels. It will just depend on personal preference which panel type you choose.
