IPS panels are overtaking TN monitors in popularity as the prices begin to decline and people familiarize themselves with the quality and viewing angles of IPS displays. Acer has introduced their $300 B243PWL 24" 1920 x 1200 display into this crowded market, a fairly simple looking display which sports speakers that utilize ports cut into the back of the monitor as opposed to enlarging the bezel to provide space. It has DVI, DisplayPort, and VGA ports but no HDMI if that is your connector of choice. Hardware Canucks found the performance in gaming to be less than perfect as they witnessed moderate ghosting while playing games but for professional usage when colour gamut and accuracy matters more than speed. Check out the full review here.
