Panel to Line Switching (PLS) Panel Technology

 If you are in search of a monitor that provides excellent visual pictures, better outlook, and high display resolution at a cost-effective range of monitors, then PLS is the perfect match for your search. It is known as the refined version of IPS Panel Technology and is a production of Samsung.

Advantages of PLS Panel Technology

 PLS Panel Technology is very cost-effective in comparison to other technologies with limited features.

  1. PLS Panel Technology is known for its incredible display brightness.
  2. Professionals widely utilize PLS Panel Technology because they provide on-point color precision and improved quality pictures.
  3. The display comes with continuous color generation and excellent angles to view.
  4. PLS comes with superior quality pictures that minimize the shadow filter and gloomy region when in use by gamers or video editors.

 Disadvantages of PLS Monitors 

  1. Both PLS and IPS lack in response rate in comparison to TN Panel Technology.
  2. PLS Panel Technology is a very minimal and fragile technology due to its construction.
  3. Although they are considered to be cost-effective, they are not purchasable for average buyers.

 In-Panel Switching (IPS) Panel Technology

In-Panel Switching gaming monitors give you the best viewing option. It has color reproduction and the broad angle view. IPS is a kind of LCD panel that comes with a thin-film transistor, and because of that, they are no different than LCD technology. Both IPS and LCD  technologies share the basic principles.

Advantages of IPS Panel Technology

  1. IPS has an excellent reproduction of color.
  2. They assist in advancing the visual encounter for gamers.
  3. They are not only efficient for gamers but also for photo and video editing.
  4. IPS produces high gray-scale display.

  1. IPS monitors are on the higher range in the market.
  2. Their response time is slower as compared to other monitors.
  3. At times it appears to be hard to distinguish black color resulting in difficulty with contrast.


IPS and PLS are almost the same. With the same type of function regarding operations. PLS is the improved creation of IPS, and that is the reason why PLS has advantages over IPS panel technology.

Here are some reasons to point out the differences.

  • PLS Panel Technology is cheaper as compared to IPS Panel Technology.
  • IPS has better gray-scale performances than PLS.
  • IPS has quicker response time than PLS.
  • PLS provides better brightness than IPS.
  • PLS consumes lesser energy as compared to IPS.

Usually, the primary functionaries of all the panel technologies are the same but depending on the user, more than the panel technology, an average buyer would look for a bigger size monitor, budget-friendly, user-friendly, etc.

Here, we have described PLS and IPS Panel Technology, and both the technologies have similar advantages and disadvantages but knowing the difference between the two will help you choose the monitor with better panel technology that meets your demands and makes your experience user-friendly.
