    Advanced True White Polarizer - What is it? Can I buy one and install it myself.

    Never heard of any being available from a 3rd party or installable either. If you want IPS with A-TW, there is something similar (or it is an A-TW and simply not announced) with the Eizo 2736 and some of their high-end coloredge models.

    New rig, does it worth to upgrade my EIZO?

    Yeah, it's primarily due to LEDs ... most people are okay with PWM on CCFL. LED on the otherhand + PWM does bother some people. Here is a good article on it -- http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/pulse_width_modulation.htm

    New rig, does it worth to upgrade my EIZO?

    I could be getting my models mixed up, so yeah, definitely doublecheck or contact Eizo as to if it uses fans or not... and noise levels if it does. PWM = pulse width modulaton. It can bother some people with LED panels, cause headaches/eyestrain and such -- it basically relates to flicker...

    New rig, does it worth to upgrade my EIZO?

    I think the CX240 uses fans... thought I read somewhere that the 241 doesn't, but could be wrong there. Otherwise, not sure what the differences are. Yeah, I do see a bit of color shift at the edges of my S-PVA too, but it's pretty minimal unless I sit in a weird position. I never have seen...

    New rig, does it worth to upgrade my EIZO?

    That model probably would be one of the few that hit on most of the things the OP wants, but he also stated he wanted improved contrast. I think that Prad review hit around 820:1ish on contrast? He may be able to still get 1000+:1, but it could be hit or miss there. He's currently getting 1100:1...

    New rig, does it worth to upgrade my EIZO?

    Simple answer is, if looking for deep VA blacks + IPS quality color shift + really great response times + wide gamut + 16:10, all in one monitor, it doesn't exist. You'd have to make some tradeoffs somewhere.

    4K/UltraHD at half resolution?

    You would, if everyone read magazines from 2 feet away. People can't hold desktop monitors in their hands, a couple inches away from their eyes.

    Asus PA279Q - Dire IPS glow, need an alternative

    That price is sort of crazy. I think in the US it goes for about $900ish, which is still expensive... just not insane like where you are. If okay with a smaller size, the FG2421 may suit what you want. But it's another Eizo, so who knows what it'd cost you there. Deep blacks and supposedly...

    Asus PA279Q - Dire IPS glow, need an alternative

    I wouldn't really suggest he hunt down an old 2490 (or 2690), as besides the fact they are rather elderly and unlikely he'll find one with low hours, their black levels sort of stink. They are great as far as IPS glow, but expect gray-ish blacks with a contrast of 800:1 or less. Probably...

    New rig, does it worth to upgrade my EIZO?

    The Eizo FG2421 may make sense if the OP was going with a dual monitor setup. The problem (at least if it was me), is he'd be going from 24" 16:10 to 23.5" 16:9, so will end up with a bit less screen real estate vertically. He may be able to squeak by with an IPS model and get the...

    New rig, does it worth to upgrade my EIZO?

    My first question would be if you need wide gamut or not. If you require it for photography, you can knock off the foris lineup from your list. Also keep in mind that many options will be 16:9 (such as the foris lineup), so make sure you are okay with going from 16:10 to 16:9. And you are...

    New rig, does it worth to upgrade my EIZO?

    If looking for a higher res, I guess one of the 27" 1440ps may be considered an upgrade. Something like the eizo 2736 since it's been stated it doesn't have traditional ips glow might be worth considering. Of course that is only if you plan to play games at that higher res. No idea how well it...

    Ipad air vs desktop monitor

    The Eizo 27"er supposedly doesn't have any glow. I believe some higher end Eizos don't have the glow either, but they are really expensive. Guess they are using that ATW polarizer or similar tech. Other than that, you'd be looking at VAs if you don't want glow. Or at least that is all I know of.

    LCD monitor looks better than LCD TV?

    In that case, I think you'll have better luck getting a monitor and using it as an occasional TV, rather than the other way around (TV used as a monitor). So long as you don't want 1440p, there are 27"ers in your price range. It's not a great size for a TV, but should be watchable assuming...

    LCD monitor looks better than LCD TV?

    Only some TVs are suitable as monitors. I believe it has to do with text, as not all display text as clear as regular monitors do. There was a giant thread somewhere in this forum as to the best TVs to use as monitors. If you have the money, I'd instead suggest spending like $500-$600 for a...
