Oh, monitor panel types. You're so exciting and not at all nerdy to talk about.

There are many of you out there unaware of the different panel types available in LCD computer monitors. In the Monitor Buying Guide, each panel type--Twisted Nematic (TN), In-Plane Switching (IPS), and Vertical Alignment (VA)--is explained.
