It has no HDMI, so if you want one then this is not for you. The title on Amazon states "2ms" - its actually a 5ms response time. I have one of these and I'm very pleased with it

23" IPS panels with HDMI are available at £110, this makes this cold in my opinion. Once you see/use an IPS compared a TN you'll see that they are a different class.

It is also £99 at ebuyer, hardly a deal.

Poor colour reproduction, poor viewing angles. The colour is the main difference, its exactly why high end mobile devices now use IPS panels. Just look at the iPad/iPhone/nexus 4 etc.

The viewing angle is the give away, they usually are 160/170 degrees. IPS usually say 178/180 degrees.

Generally TN panel monitors do not advertise the fact they are TN. IPS monitors do state they are IPS usually, if not a quick Google search will clarify what type of panel is used.

There are other panel technologies such as MVA, PLS. Pretty much all better than TN panels for general use.

The only benefit TN panels have is 120+ hz support. But I'd say that's only a requirement if you do competitive gaming and I mean for prize money etc, not just playing call of duty online :)

It may not be an earth-shattering deal but still some people who will be sitting at their desk looking directly ahead at the screen and who may not also be fussy don't care about an extra "10-20º". Many people out there still have TN panel monitors and, as you can see from the comments on this post, can't tell or don't know the difference.

Good price so hot!

I would still have a look at the GL2450HM for a few pounds more, it was the offical MLG monitor for 2012.

Will it make my Word documents stand out or my Excel spreadsheet more vibrant. I understand what you are saying and an IPS panel may well be superior but for a lot of people it is just a good value computer monitor, probably connected by a VGA cable, for doing mundane office work.

Yes, you will see the difference even in Word, they have better black levels, so your text looks crisp. IPS is vastly superior.

Not a very good comment, yes, on paper it is just "10-20" degrees in viewing angles, but you clearly did not use an IPS in real life, or a TN apparently... I had this exact monitor and lots of other TN monitors, and because a 24" display is so large, even when sitting directly in front of it, you get different colors on the front and different ones in the margins of the screen.

This will never happen on an IPS and this is not reflected by the 8 degress difference in the advertised viewing angles.
#20
I agree with IPS screens being better than TN, but I've never understood why Tablets need such a wide viewing angle. They're only small screens, and only one person can use them at a time, so what's the point? 'Yes, but it's really handy if you ever need to view your iPad around a corner...'

You've convinced me. Could you give me a link to a comparable IPS panel monitor at this price. I was going to buy this one off ebuyer yesterday but I'm glad I waited.

Oh yeah, I forgot that most people don't look at monitors head on when on the computer.

Brilliant monitor, and just bought it - before it was on here. I was first browsing it at a price of 101.97, then when I got to the checkout it was 99.99

I have an LG equivilant to this and yes bought 3-4years ago at 140quid and its a TN panel but LED slim backlit, although has HDMI it makes NO difference as my graphics cards output in DVI-D.
They are good monitors, excellent for the price considering and gaming and desktop work it is great. Movies? well if your not watching on a TV built for it or on a sofa watching it , cmon, really?
Monitors are fine for the price, if not amazing for any gaming rig or office rig builder. CAD workers as a second monitor for non-CAD tasks this is excellent for the money.
It simply cant be cold considering the price size and it has LED rather than LCD.

They don't. Their heads wobble, their position changes, their eyes focus on the top of the screen then down the bottom of the screen, all sorts. TN's horrible for producing a solid, stable picture. It's not without its advantages, though.

Its currently a difference of £23 on Amazon and the IPS screen is also an inch smaller.

An inch smaller is hardly a bad thing, they have the same screen resolution. So the 23" screen actually has a higher PPI.

Argos have an LG 22" at £109.99 store collection, there is some near me. There is an amazon seller doing £112 delivered for a 23" LG. Sorry amazon increased their price recently, it was £109.99 delivered.

There are some videos here:

But if you are using a TN panel to view them its kind of hard to tell the difference.
#33
A good example is on this forum, the white boxes for comments are a different shade of white compared to the background. A TN panel makes it hard to see this, IPS does not.

I have an LG W2363D TN panel, so its not a cheap panel I am comparing IPS monitors to...

Ok last post, if you watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8MO-XaCZ_8

Sorry Horrorwood, saying it is just a £10'ish saving is somewhat disingenuous. This deal is for a 24" monitor at £99.99 delivered. I am happy to accept that an IPS screen is better quality but you should accept that a decent 24" IPS screen costs a lot more than £10 extra which makes it a no-go for people with a £100'ish budget that just want a decent computer monitor.

Seriously?!

It is 1" smaller yet has the same amount of pixels. It has exactly the same amount of content displayed on it as a 24" at 1080p resolution.

The same amount of pixels in a smaller display = better looking, nevermind the fact it is IPS. If there was a 22 to 24" 1440p display i'd buy it instantly.

As I said before, I am not doubting its quality but if your budget is £100'ish than £124 or so is a lot more - especially as it is a smaller screen (despite the same amount of detail being squeezed onto a smaller screen).

Is £110 not "£100ish"?

If you can't afford the extra £10 (or £13 if you really must have 23") then you probably shouldn't be buying a monitor in the first place.

While I wouldn't argue IPS has a better picture the better viewing angle is really of no benefit or you ("you" being anyone who does make it a consideration) is obviously using the product wrong, anything over 40 degrees is using it wrong imo. Also a cheap IPS can be pretty average although calibrating any screen properly will help regardless of what sort of panel it is.

Just search IPS on HUKD, there are a lot of them, although you won't find it for exactly the same price.
I am not biased towards IPS, but the difference is huge, no matter what you use it for, IPS is a joy. MVA panels are also impressive, and Benq has a few models with MVA panels, but they are a bit too slow. I don't remember seeing a deal in here for MVA, but for IPS, there are quite a few, so you have a good chance of finding one using search function.
