Quote from EntityThe problem with an ips is ghosting, as it has a relatively slow response time at around 8ms average GTG, and probable worse WTB. That is why IPS monitors aren't used in gaming. If you have a good eye you'll notice the slight ghosting that ips monitors have versus a standard TN monitor. VA's are in the middle of IPS and TN they get better colors than TN's but reduce response time slightly.
Ghosting is kind of becoming a thing of the past, at least on the 23" wide screen newer models as they are becoming much more responsive as tech progresses.
But you do have a point. I don't have issues with my 23" IPS, however. It looks so beautiful and perfect I don't notice a difference during FPS, MMO etc.. Skyrim looks epic with 0 issues too..
