So first we went from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080 and now we have gone from 2560x1600 to 2560x1440 to 2560x1080.. Must be wonderful to pay more for less room, but hey its new and shiny.
And people debating over IPS and TN, its hard to compare the 2 unless the monitors are otherwise identical and you see them side by side in a neutral enviroment, over the internet with a TN panel is not neutral. That said there is a difference and depending on how good your sight is.. its either substantial or not so much. For me personally its something that I'll prolly never buy a TN anymore. The difference in graphics is quite major, and I aint talking abt only gaming here..
