You know, from a purely technical standpoint, those panels aren't very different from each other (e-IPS compared to H-IPS; the difference isn't as big as you think).

However, the image quality is much different. e-IPS has a contrast shift at high angles, while most/all other IPS types won't have it (not to be confused with E-IPS, lol). Not much technical difference between IEM and cheap earbuds.


Plasma has really great color accuracy, however. Too bad the big ones are banned on commiefornia.

What I mean is, when you get down to the little things, they aren't far apart. e-IPS is S-IPS with more transparency in the matrix, and H-IPS is S-IPS with a twisted electrode pane layout (and an ATW polarizer on the hyper-high end monitors). tongue.gif

Somehow, they are different in quality, however. The only real gripe I have eith e-IPS is the extreme variation in panel quality ([H]'s U2311h thread should be proof enough frown.gif).

Reguardless, IPS is just an rearrangement of TN's array, if one really wants to get technical tongue.gif

Regardless of panel type it's still limited to sRGB and has banding problems and backlight bleed, and many panels come with different tints due to LG's lax QC on them.

What the panel is or isn't capable of is besides the point - the monitor as a full product can't match the quality of plasma TVs currently on the market. The higher end monitors, ranging from the U3011 and ending with the multitude of NEC and Eizo monitors out there, at least beat them in several different areas. In theory plasma screens can easily outperform even those though, there just won't be a demand for them because of the high relative cost when dealing with small screens (sub-40").

So..... if burn in is not much of an issue (and these days I don't see it as one... esp. with screen savers...., and looking at it from a performance standpoint as well as image quality, do the plasmas beat out an IPS panel? For instance I know gaming will. However, will a 40" calibrated Plasma have better image quality for things like photography/graphic design? And I ask this assuming you don't have to spend 2k+ to get an ultra high end Plasma to do so. I am seeking relative price to performance value.

I know a plasma typically will not have any adjusted features, but I can just get a wall mount for that..... biggrin.gif ...... however, if I am looking at the U2711 for instance or even the U30 then I am looking at an MSRP of $1100 - $1500. Of course I will look for sales either way. But, I just have to step back and ask myself... in that price range can I get something that is better quality or at least matching quality in a Plasma? And if I can then I will go to a more appropriate forum to see what I should be looking for given my intent.

PLasmas are not very energy efficient and produce lot's of heat. I would exchange my plasma for LED tv any day. Yes 600hz is great, but 240hz is just as good if you don't have cat vision.

I have a 55" Panasonic Plasma. And it doesn't produce as much heat as you think. At least some of the newer versions are not as bad. And I turn down the brightness anyway which helps even further. The inky blacks and raw picture as it is meant to be seen is unbeatable. A lot of people are impressed by LED due to the bright picture more than anything which is a distortion of the image you are meant to see. Lighting with LED can sometimes be an issue as well, esp. if blue LEDs are used. However, two things that are awesome with LED screens are thickness (very thin) and contrast (while the LED can over saturate or distort colors it is also very good at contrast).
