Hello from Singapore,
I'm a new user here and after surfing for days for info on LCDs, I finally chanced upon this website and it's excellent.
The buying guide is especially useful for a quick overview. Thanks very much for the list.
My main tasks are word processing & Internet surfing (a lot of video and photo sites) ~70%, photo editing ~20% and video editing ~10%.
Most of the advice I find is for gamers. I was wondering if the requirements for an LCD for video editing is also the same as for gamers.
Based on the above requirements, would a panel based on IPS technology be the best?
As brochures aren't always available and the technical specs vary from country to country, would the following ways of judging the type of panel used be correct? (I read it at another site)
TN: Strong darkening when viewing from below screen.
IPS: Violet hue on black colours when viewing from the side
MVA/PVA: No violet hues on dark areas when viewing from below.
Is this the best way to judge just by looking?
