It has been a while since we linked to a description of the various panel types offered for those shopping for a new monitor, which is why your eyeballs are directed to TechSpot's recent article. A lot of discussion goes on about the disappointment some express when they see a new variable refresh rate display which is using a 'mere' TN panel; or how someone feels only VA panels offer a true black.
Take a look at the technology behind the three most common display types and the strengths and weaknesses of them, or just head down to the comments to discuss your choice for the one true panel type.
"By far the most common types of display panels used on PC monitors are TN, IPS and VA. We're sure you've heard these terms before if you've researched monitors to purchase, and to be clear, the type of panel is a key piece of information that reveals a lot about how the monitor will behave and perform."
