Cheap IPS monitors vs. TN
May 6, 2012

I'm in the market for a new monitor. The cheap end of the market for a new monitor.

I've just done a lot of research on IPS vs TN and learned a lot, but still have some questions I can't find the answer to.

Most, if not all, of the cheaper IPS monitors (

Assuming I'm using a colormunki to profile the display, are there any COLOR advantages still to getting an IPS??? I understand that the viewing angle will be better, and the colors may be better out of the box, but I don't care about that since I sit right in front of my computer and will calibrate the monitor.

I went to BestBuy today and compared a cheap LG IPS235v IPS monitor to the other TNs and couldn't see the difference in colors. Am I crazy, or do the only real color advantages in IPS come when you go wide gamut?
