So we all know that an IPS (In Plane Switching) monitor is supposed to be better than a TN (Twisted Nematic + Film) for colour reproduction?
(read this http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/specs.htm for all the gory details)
We also know that an IPS monitor can cost 3 or 5 times an TN monitor? Think EIZO and U (Ultra ) series.
Not any more!!
I got an LG IPS236V-PN from MSY for $199 tonight - blinking brilliant!
See: http://www.lg.com/au/it-monitors/lg-...ed-lcd-monitor for product information.
I hooked it up and run my calibration (Huey Pro) gadget! Them I compared some recent prints with the screen - much better than my old TN monitor.
Also an IPS monitor has a better angle of view, i.e. a more even rendering regardless of viewing angle.
In case you're wondering TN's have faster refresh rates and thus gamers love them, but serious 'togs use calibrated IPS monitors.
