    do you need a 24 incher?

    I'm using a dell 24" MVA monitor but I may need to return it back to my friend soon, I don't think I can use anything smaller than 24" now

    TN panels suck.

    Go read up on IPS, S-IPS, PVA, TN etc.

    I guess - I would never be happy with a TN.

    I spend between 8-14 hours a day on a computer and could never use a TN panel.

    i'd go for the 24". theres a huge big jump from 22" to 24" than you may think. the resolution goes from 1680 or something to 1920 and most of 22" are TN panels as mentioned before.

    i bought the same monitor when it first came out..

    I don't have any problems with it. what u will need to do is get a very good color calibrator to set the colors...mine currently lost its settings when i unplugged it to move it somewhere and when i turned it back on, the color was a bit messed up (red hue on the face). But calibration is something you will need to do on most if not all screens if u r going to do PP work.

    If not, i don't think u'll notice any difference in watching movies or what not.

    Great monitor especially for being an IPS technology.

    its the name of the pixel technology behind the lcd.

    TN are not made for color reproduction. They are cheap, and are mostly used for gaming systems because of the response time. TN panels also have limited viewing angles, so the color will shift when viewing the image from an angle.

    I've been looking for another monitor anyway. How can I tell if a monitor is IPS or VA?

    Generally you can tell by the Viewing Angle and the Response time. If the response time is 5ms or less and/or the viewing angle is around ~160 degrees, you can bet that its a TN panel.

    Or you can just search for the panel you looking at using the link below.

    MVA panels are still better than TN. Although there are few TN panels that are actually good out of the box, you might just get lucky.

    Search this forum, its pretty extensive on people doing reviews and reporting any problems w/ their monitors. http://www.hardforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=78

    I just bought a 22" westinghouse @ best buy because it was on sale and my old monitor died. I have to say I'm pretty impressed with it so far.

    just got it. and have it all set up. I'm connecting it to my MBP and dual-screening it for now. my first impression is that it's pretty fucking awesome. i haven't calibrated it yet but i'll get around to that tomorrow. definitely needs it b/c it's too freakin bright right out of the box and the colors are too saturated.
