Well, many have said they find VA screens more comfortable than IPS.

Someone says, "I guess in theory VA would be better because it has better contrast (which will make it easier to read text) and dark parts of an image will be darker (so less light going into your eyes)."

"I must admit that VA are in some way more like flat surface in that eyes have at least surface to focus at, unlike IPS which seems to be more like watching transparent mosaic of colored glass."

But I'm mainly referring to real-world anecdotes, like: "It's been a couple of more weeks. Still no eye fatigue from a VA monitor. And I did end up staying with the 32UD60, despite the uniformity issue. Eye comfort is way more important to me. And after years of dealing with eye fatigue from monitors, no way I would go back to IPS or TN."

Also please refer to this thread where two users claim eye strain from a Dell UltraSharp:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Monitors/comments/4as1dj/ips_eye_strain_is_this_a_thing/

One gets relief from a VA screen. However, they seem to believe it may not be the IPS that is to blame but the backlight that particular Dell uses.

But like I say, he got relief from a VA screen: "i assume its the ips panel as much of a bummer that is... i bought an ultrawide 3440x14400 samsung after that and had 0 issues with eye strain. its a VA panel..though i took it back because of colour banding/dithering/black crush issues."

Here's a backlight bleed test.

My two HP monitors test almost perfectly. The Asus Eye Care IPS (the generation just before the current release) had really bad backlight bleed according to this test.

Are my HP units unusually good, or was the Asus with very noticeable bleed an anomaly?

I'm also wondering if how roughly the monitor is handled during the shipping process from the factory to the customer affects backlight bleed.
