Avoid these subpar Panda LM156LF IPS displays when buying your next gaming laptop (Image source: Asus)
Prevent these substandard Panda LM156LF IPS shows when purchasing your next gaming laptop (Image source: Asus)

Asus should truly stop using these Panda panels on their laptop computers. Do not be deceived by their high native revitalize rates as Panda panels have some of the slowest black- white reaction times and narrowest color space of any other high refresh rate screen.

To players, leaping from regular 60 Hz shows to ones capable of 120 Hz or higher can feel like night and day. The gaming experience will constantly be tangibly smoother and with improved responsiveness on a 120+ Hz revitalize rate screen when compared to any 60 Hzoption Nearly every high refresh rate panel on laptop computers have the added advantage of fast black- white reaction times and full sRGB coverage to lessen ghosting and allow for much deeper colors too, respectively.

We need to state “almost every high refresh rate panel” since a minimum of one producer is making inexpensive high refresh rate panels with both substantially sluggish black- white reaction times and restricted colors. The Panda LM156LF series might have native revitalize rates of 120 Hz or 144 Hz, however its black- white reaction times can be practically 3x slower and with a 30 percent narrower color range than comparable options from BOE, LG Philips, AU Optronics, or others. These hidden disadvantages make laptop computers equipped with Panda panels substandard for gaming although such panels are found solely on gaming laptop computers.

Our table below compares a number of gaming laptop computers equipped with the high refresh rate Panda  LM156LF panel —– most of them from Asus —– to other high refresh rate options from AU Optronics, Sharp, and LG Philips. Panels from Panda are regularly narrower in color range (60% sRGB vs.>> 90% sRGB) and with slower black- white reaction times (>> 13 ms vs. 4 ms to 7 ms) than those from any of the abovementioned options. The distinctions aren’t small either as ghosting is more evident and colors aren’t as deep based upon our experience with all of these laptop computers.

If you want the best high refresh panel on your next gaming laptop purchase, then we suggest preventing these Panda options as their high native revitalize rates are rather alleviated by their slower black- white reaction times and shallower color recreation.

After finishing with a B.S. in ecological hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to end up being accredited by the U.S. NRC to run atomic power plants.
