I'm not going to waste time with the whole video, but what is shown at 8 min is pretty pointless. TN fails hard when viewed off-axis, that's its weakness. Even adjusting your position in your chair will make the contrast shift.just found this video, which shows imo the profound difference between IPS and TN panels. I have just got a IPS monitor, and have to say images are gorgeous. I never realised TN is so bad. Watch the video, what do you think?
start at 8 mins
It wasn't terribly annoying when I didn't do any photo editing, but once I went IPS, it became quite apparent.
IPS has some glow, but that's only noticeable when the screen is almost completely black (i.e. not under normal usage).
VA has better contrast though, some may like that better.
