The color/tones shift tooooo much in the TN models...
With a TN what I see in the center is different from the corners...
Right now I have 3 monitors with different technologies in front of me
and one is a TN, which is used only to show pallets/tools...
Get a TN and you will regret!

The LG IPS235v is OK, see http://www.prad.de/en/monitore/review/2011/review-lg-ips235v-part3.html

Anyone interested in buying a monitor for photo work check the reviews:
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews.htm
http://www.prad.de/en/monitore/reviews.html
In the Prad reviews pay attention to:
-The UGRA test (download the PDF)
-The panel brightness distribution
-The gamut coverage
(good place to compare http://www.iccview.de/content/view/3/7/lang,en/ )
-Profile accuracy and the calibration curves, the good ones are in 45ยบ

-The contrast is the least important as any monitor have more contrast than any paper print.
