I'm looking for a nice IPS monitor to replace my current 22" IPS. As most of you know, 95% of all monitors use TN or Twisted-Nematic display technology. This means low cost and low response times, but the trade-offs are bad viewing angles and colour reproduction.
My main concern is viewing angles, and i believe IPS monitors do the best job at this, though i'm willing to consider PVA/MVA alternatives if they are as good as the IPS. It all depends on the exact implementation in specific products, i guess.
So to list my 'demands', i would get this:
Have wide viewing angles without colour distortion (most important)
Have acceptable response times enough for movies/gaming
Have 1680x1050 resolution, and be in 19" - 22" range - no bigger!
Have digital interface (DVI/HDMI/Displayport)
Can turn off the small Power-On LED (would be nice)
Has to support VESA mount 75 or 100mm (most do)
When searching for IPS monitors, there's not alot available. I did found this monitor though:
LG Flatron W2220P-SF
It has 1680x1050 resolution, is IPS, rated 5ms reponse time. They say its "5ms ISO", unclear to me whether that means ordinary grey-to-grey or more real Tr+Tf response times. Anyone has a clue? Anyway, this monitor sells to close to 250 euro, or 300 dollars i guess. So its not even that expensive, being an IPS-monitor.
My main question is if anyone has comparable offerings to this one, or can advise me on MVA/PVA monitors which excell at viewing angles.
