You're obviously assuming that all "mainstream" monitors have the same exact image, and all IPS panels have a different image.

What happens if you have a monitor with a white point at 5000k, and someone else viewing your image has a monitor with a white point at 7000k? What originally looked white to you will now look yellow to him.

But if your monitor was calibrated so that white was actually 255,255,255, then at least your white will still match the same white that HE is used to seeing on this screen, even if it's not really white.

As a web developer myself, the panel won't matter as much as the quality you, yourself would put into the work.

I'd personally save the money

I am thinking I would be better off going with the more mainstream type of monitor so that way when people view my art/websites online they look just like I intended them to look.
It is not something you need to justify, if you actually make money doing your online work then its already justified, 1 - 2 jobs pays for your new panel.

Well yeah I understand that improper calibration and variation in calibration can also distort the image between users but that will always be there no matter what type of screen I have right? Or is there some hidden secret with IPS panel screens that I don't know about?

I don't really intend to print a lot of my work off to show people so all I am worried about is the variation between users, and how I was reasoning it is that if I use an "average" screen that the greater percentage of people will be using than I will be able to create work that will display correctly to the majority of the viewers.

There's a HUGE difference between IPS and calibration. Just because you'd have an IPS screen that doesn't automatically means that the colors are correct. It just means that you can get them within a smaller margin of error than with a TN panel, and that the panel will look more even because of better viewing angles. And you get better blacks too. Unless you calibrate your monitor, they're all the same crap as far as accuracy is concerned.


Now, back to the main topic...let me give you an example of a big problem that happens if you don't calibrate your monitor.

A lot of monitors have a problem where they "crush" blacks. So basically, 0,0,0 looks exactly the same as 10,10,10 (or whatever value, depending on your monitor). And let's say that your monitor does that, and you edited a photo so that it looks absolutely perfect to you. When I go to open that up on my average monitor that happens NOT to have this problem, or has it to a lesser degree, chances are that I'll find a whole bunch of crap in the shadows that you thought wasn't there. So now your picture looks like total crap.

It follows the same logic that just because most people listen to music on their ipod, that doesn't mean that artists should record their music with a computer mic.

And even if you put in the effort to pick a monitor that's perfect out of the box, you still don't know how it's image shifts over time. It could end up doing it anyway a few months from now, and you'd never know any better.
