IPS is the way to go. As for which one, it all depends on what your budget is. No matter which monitor you get, you should factor in the cost of a calibration device and software.

IPS and S-PVA panels are the way to go. PVA panels are usually cheaper, but their viewing angles aren't as consistent.

The giveaway for IPS panels just by looking at a spec sheet is a 178-degree viewing angle. If you can see it in person, you'll be able to tell that the color/contrast consistency is much better than the cheaper displays when viewed at an angle, and instead of turning yellow some of the blacks get a purple tint. I dunno any giveaways for S-PVA.

You can look up what panel a monitor has here: http://www.tftcentral.​co.uk/ (external link).

Mine comes up as a 19" TN Film panel. Is it good or bad for photo editing?
