    Viewsonic VX2370S & VX2770S

    These new IPS monitors have thin bezels like the new Dell S-line LCDs and come with a lower price. The 23" is under $200 and the 27" is around $320. The panel surface is anti-glare which makes it an cheap matte alternative to the Dell.

    Emissive displays like OLED do worse in sunlight. It's why plasma screens which are also emissive do worse than LCD when there is massive glare. LCD is different in that it can partially use the light from the sun to project an image like e-ink. Transflective LCD allows you to turn off the...

    An LED display without local dimming usually will not provide better blacks than a CCFL display. They are in principle the same thing when you set them to equal brightness except that it may provide more or less backlight bleed depending on how well it is designed or assembled. If each pixel in...

    Acer Ferrari F-20 good deal for $130?

    The screen seemed a little too blue by default(even on the warm setting!) so I lowered the blue saturation until it matched the whites of the Dell 2005FPW which was closer to a warmer yellow. They look really close now, but the Dell has slightly better color saturation which is not surprising...

    24" LED backlit NON-TN for under a grand?

    Did you consider getting a adjustable stand for the Apple display? Is LED that critical for you? This stand is perfect for Apple 24" LED: You need a VESA mount from Apple:

    Acer Ferrari F-20 good deal for $130?

    /337: Yes you can see clearly from the sides from a good quality TN, their horizontal viewing angles are often superior to P-MVA. If you look from below the monitor it should darken and invert, this means you have a TN. I'm loving this monitor, for $130. Compared to the sandy textured colors...

    Acer Ferrari F-20 good deal for $130?

    It seems the one I got is TN, so they seem to be doing a panel lottery. I was disappointed initially but got over it because the picture is as good if not in some aspects better than S-IPS Dell 2005FPW(thanks to the glossy coating). It has even backlighting and no dead pixels so the quality is...

    Acer Ferrari F-20 good deal for $130?

    Yes it's a good deal. I just bought one when I saw it on slickdeals. Look at Acer's other monitors selling for $130 and they are 17" TNs.

    Atom vs Nano review

    Engadget revealed the Asus N10 in August, but it didn't exactly say it had a Geforce, but the HDMI port implied it had something more than integrated graphics. I can't say how successful they will sell, given that they cost twice as much as the average netbook. I guess for the WoW addict, it...

    Apple 24" LED-backlit IPS Cinema Display with DisplayPort ($899)?

    If you hate glossy that much why not just get a matte screen filter? At least with glossy you have a choice...

    HP LP2480zx

    That monitor's price makes the NECs look like a bargain. Did you actually buy it for yourself?

    WHAT 32INCH MONITOR??? Don't wanna return any more

    The newer plasma have an anti glare coating which really cuts down on the image clarity imo. I've seen the Panasonics with and without the AG side by side and you can definitely notice a brown haze on one of them. I have the 60 series and it is glossy which I prefer.

    32" 1080p IPS panel as a PC monitor

    For under $900 you won't find a better deal. I wouldn't even consider getting a 26" IPS if I had a choice. I'd just get this since these panels are manufactured in Japan. I don't think Panny LCDs are getting the same kind of respect as Sony and Sharp but it will only be a matter of time until...
