To properly compare the photos right click on the photos and closely inspect larger versions in a new tab, especially if experience trouble with the spoiler pop downs. Menu calibration refers to my use of a colorimeter and calibration program to increase the color accuracy as much as possible using only the monitors menu settings.  All photos are from my The Order 1886 Lights Off Photo Album which features monitors ranging from 150-1200$ US, and comparisons of AHVA/IPS/PLS, TN and VA panels.  The monitors were connected to my PS4 Pro, placed in front of my closet, and calibrated as best as possible with their menu settings.

The Acer H257HU uses a matte 2560x1440 8 bit panel made by LG, and sells for the same price as most 144hz 1080p 6 bit +FRC AUO TN panels, and is the only matte AHVA/IPS/PLS (gamma shift free) panel I own.

The BenQ Zowie RL2460 uses a very similar matte 6 bit +FRC 1080p TN panel made by AUO but has more accurate color presets and more linear gamma which closely adheres to the 2.2 HDTV/REC 709 standard.  I used the same camera settings, but my room lighting (a single 6500K 2600 lumen CFL light) died this summer (BenQ photo was taken in January), and was replaced by a 6500k 2200 lumen LED light which is actually brighter since CFL lights deteriorate and loose brightness over time.  The BenQ suffers from obvious vertical blue light bleed along the left and right sides.

Make sure to right click on the photos and closely inspect larger versions in a new tab, especially if experience trouble with the spoiler pop outs. The monitors were connected to my PC and placed on my desk, part of which has a black table cloth over it, and pinned to the wall the desk is up against.
