What screen is the stock photographer using... out of curiosity.
Do you calibrate or not..?..
What calibration device are you using.?.

Apple aluminum 23" Cinema Display calibrated with Spyder 3 Pro. It is supposedly a TFT active matrix panel.

You need to explain what all those abbreviations mean, or at least put some meaning into them. Either that or add two more options: "Don't know" and "Don't understand the question".
As it stands I don't know what it is you're asking or why you're asking it.

Patrick, I suspect that most photographers aren't aware of panel differences, and don't have a clue what type of panel their monitor uses.

And even those who are aware may not be sure -- like me.  ;D  I know my (our!) LP2475w is IPS, but never was able to verify for sure if it was S-IPS (as mentioned in some HP literature) or H-IPS (as some people claimed they were told by HP people who "know").

I don't think the difference between the two is all that important, anyway. Either IPS panel is far superior to TN panels, and more desirable than MVA panels for photographers.

And what about wide gamut displays (like our LP2475w) vs narrow? And LED backlighting vs CCFL? There's no end to the discussion!   :)

I use Dell U2410 which has an H-IPS panel, calibrated with Spyder 3 Pro.
But I'm just a hobbyist...

My understanding...IPS is the best for photographers, then TN and lastely MVA. IPS and MVA are recommended for photographers for the true color display. Of course IPS is also much more expensive than it's TN counterpart.

Oh and BTW I think mine is a MVA...it's to old to be a TN

Here's a monitor data base where you can look up your monitor to see what kind it is.

I had to use your link to look up my Samsung 245Ts - it says "24"WS Samsung S-PVA (LTM240CS07)"

I think calibrating your monitor acurately (i.e. with hardware support, not just eyeballing it) is more important than what type of technology the LCD uses - at least for the vast majority of us.

I agree 100% on that. One of my monitors came with calibrating software, but really isn't what you need. You really need the hardware monitor for it to be accurate. I use Huey and it's alright...not the greatest, but it's alright.

I don't calibrate and I haven't a clue what a screen panel is.
Probably says it all!

Shadye, I didn't know I had a panel either, but it's just our monitor.   :D

My Hyundai B70A is a TN.  I never calibrated it with special tools, only those online tests.
