Banding

DSC_0411 by Deepinthesky Teslastorm, on Flickr


AUO TN panels tend to suffer from very obvious and frankly horrific banding when viewing this Dawn Engine image and this 60fps Westworld trailer.  Here's the Dell S2417DG/S2716DG banding example from a reddit user, and here's the Westworld banding example (top screen).  The S2719DGF is free from obvious banding when viewing both the Dawn Engine image and Westworld trailer both before and after calibration, but I did see minor banding and compression artifacts not present on my AHVA, IPS and PLS panels when viewing some dark content on YouTube.  The S2719DGF suffers from far less banding than most TN panels, and I did not notice any in the games or movies (blu-ray) I tried, but it's still obvious when viewing some dark downloaded and streamed content.
