Hi All,

I recently bough a Samsung CJG56 monitor (144Hz WQHD VA panel) in the hope that it would do better in terms of colour contrast and blacks than my previous Dell IPS monitor.

Unfortunately, although colour contrast is indeed a lot better, blacks are not. Whenever only blacks are displayed, large, inconsistent backlight patches bleed around the borders. It looks just as bad as it did on my IPS screen, even though this is not supposed to happen on VA I think. Unlike on my IPS screen, applying slight pressure on the backlight spots gets rid of them partially, but they come back as soon as I remove the pressure.

Does anyone happen to know whether this is normal with a VA screen? It cost more than €300, so I'd send it back for repairs if it turned out that this is a manufacturing fault.

Thanks in advance for any tips.
