The type of panel used to make an LCD/LED monitor can substantially affect its image quality. Monitors using “standard” panel technology (typically twisted nematic, or TN), while less costly, are disadvantaged by narrower viewing angles and less accurate color reproduction – all of which can be fatiguing to the eyes. Monitors with premium quality panel technology, such as IPS (in-plane switching), on the other hand, provide a number of benefits. These advantages are particularly helpful for frequent computer users, as well as those who work with graphics or content with a high degree of detail. ViewSonic monitors with SuperClear IPS deliver an extraordinary level of visual clarity by eliminating image distortion and color shifting. This ensures true, lifelike color from virtually any viewing angle along with high color accuracy and consistency from screen to print. ViewSonic SuperClear IPS monitors also feature the highest-available 178/178 degree viewing angles.
