Only downside is the TN panel. Anyone have an LCD with a TN panel?

I have a 19" Sceptre wide screen that I bought a year or so ago.

I was a little concerned, because I'd never heard of the brand, but it's been perfect...

If I had the cash (i.e. if it weren't christmas) I'd snatch that up in a heartbeat.

FWIW, I got mine from Tigerdirect as well.

TN panels using dithering to simulate 16.7 million colors. They are only capable of displaying 200-some-odd-thousand colors.

PVA/MVA/IPS panels display true 16.7 million colors.

TN panels also have lousy viewing angles.

So are you going to get this?


Most LCD screens you see are TN panels. If you've seen a Dell/HP/Etc... that come with an LCD monitor, most of those are TN panels. They are the cheapest of the screens. They are fine to use for most anything your using them for. The only way your going to tell the difference in panels is if you have one of the other possible types sitting next to it. Then you will see a difference.

If your going to spend $300 on a monitor, you may as well save up another $150-ish to get one with a P-MVA panel.

Tough to find a 24-inch P-MVA for $450.

I'd buy one of the Dell 2405's but they don't make them new anymore. I don't want to spend a bunch of jack on a used monitor.

I think I have the same thing - it's either a 19" or 20", don't remember which. Works fine. Recently hooked it up to the wife's computer when her old tube-style monitor died and got a shit-rocking Samsung 21" LCD for myself. :thumb:

All 2405's are used at this point. But it is in good condition. It is only six months old.
