What’s the difference between an IPS monitor and a LED monitor?

IPS monitors use in-plane switching (IPS) technology to flip liquid crystals perpendicular to the display, which provides a better vertical viewing angle . LED monitors don’t have this feature that provides a better view compared to IPS. IPS has a much higher contrast ratio due its malleable LCD screen. This means more legible text and graphics on the screen at one time when compared with direct-lit LED panels. Of course, current generation LED displays can match an IPS monitor’s contrast ratios but they’re not as sharp and have worse black levels than those of an IPS monitor. As such, they stand no chance against IPS screens in terms of clarity and seeability.
