New HP IPS monitors offer much for less

New Hewlett-Packard monitors feature IPS panels, low prices, and love.

I love the smell of a 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution in the morning. Smells like victory. I'm of course referring to the superhigh resolution of the ZR2740w, pictured above. But I'm sure you knew that. HP

The last few months in monitor reviews have been dominated by rail-thin monitors with twisted nematic (TN) displays. Many have been impressive specimens. But as far as monitors go, there are other panel technologies out there, people.

Today, Hewlett-Packard announced five new computer monitors: one TN and four that use in-plane switching (IPS) technology.

IPS monitors generally provide wider viewing angles and usually cover a higher percentage of the sRGB color space than TNs, so they appeal to more professional users, who may require more accurate visuals.

Below we'll dive into the details of four new IPS monitors, one of which HP is now selling for under $200.
