    This is going to sound very dumb...BUT...(1) What is a TN panel? (2)What brands of 24" monitors are NOT TN panels...(3) Does it really matter?:eek:

    Hey, I just Googled TN vs TFT LCD Panels and found that TN panels have a limited viewing angle as compared to CRT monitors. Interesting......

    This is taken from the new build Section, from the thread of new builds. I think this sums it up pretty well. I hope this helps you.

    From what I can gather...I more than likely already have TN panels..at least 3..(I have three monitors).So when I go to buy a 24 incher, unless I'm prepared to spend ALOT more than 500 bills on it...it will more than likely be a TN panel...Which I'm sure is just fine for my usage(gaming and browsing) I don't do video editing or designing or the like...As far as a brand I was looking at 3 diff ones Acer...Gateway and Dell...They all 3 have 24" monitors at fairly decent price ranges...Which one?

    Hey Pent :rockout: I've had very good luck with Acer. Good monitor for a good price. I would sugest Samsung though. Much higher quality in their 24" monitors. I got a Sceptre and really like it, but its not on the level with Samsung.
