Re: Cheap IPS monitors vs. TN

I'm not too worried about viewing angles. I'd be content with the viewing angles of some of the TN panels, knowing that I sit directly in front of my monitor.

I've seen the video comparisons between IPS and TN on Youtube that show a big difference in colors. But these comparisons are all using IPS monitors with a wider gamut.

The larger the monitor and the closer you sit, the more likely that you will notice the gamma/color shift on the left and right and also top and bottom.

Are you talking about a color shift along the edges of the monitor? Isn't that usually a problem of uneven back-lighting? Is this more prone in TN monitors than IPS?
