Philips just announced a new 28 inch 4K monitor for only $1200.
Here is the link.

Seems 99% similar to the Dell 28" 4K (even same price).

That monitor is a TN panel. Not good for photoediting

You're right. I haven't noticed that. I started to read all about TN vs. IPS and it looks like TN is cheaper for a reason. It can't produce that many colors. It has grater response time but that's because it reproduces less colors
Well, I guess it still good for gaming.

that's pretty sweet ... I am sure in a few years there will be a slew of 4k monnitors in the $200-400 price range readily available. Japan is pushing the 4K movement quite heavily these days.

After being spoiled with ips panels, I don't think I can ever go back to tn panels.

I know tn panels have made some improvements over the years, but still.

I guess I'd just save to buy an IGZO 32" when it comes down near the low 2k high 1k price level.

It stands for "Twisted Nematic" -- generally great for response times in LCD's at the cost of poor viewing angles (compared to IPS) and generally worse color performance (again in comparison to IPS panels).

Actually I don't personally care about the colors for most uses other than photography. Even a panel with crappy color is still acceptable for web browsing, work, movies, programming, web design, gaming, etc.

The real problem is the vertical viewing angle. On a small screen that means that if you tilt the monitor, the image changes. On a big screen, however (24+ inches), the top and bottom of the screen will always look different. This drives me insane. I have tried it a couple of times, and I always end up constantly tilting the screen back and forth looking for just the right angle where the image is uniform across the screen -- but on a big enough TN panel, there is no perfect angle.

So for me, it's an IPS or PVA panel all the way.

1920x1200 IPS (i.e. 2MP) works just fine for me and at a fraction of that cost.
