It's a TN panel. The only way to find out if it's any good is to calibrate and test it, there's no easy way to tell a good TN panel from a average or crappy one.

May be true... before prices of LCD monitors and TVs fell through the floor. You can now buy something like this for about $100 USD. Don't waste your time with it. Invest in an IPS paneled 23" monitor for $200-$250.

If you intend to use it for image editing, even free is too expensive ;-)a

Well... It's not so bad if it's all you have for the time being.

TN paneled LCD monitors have a limited viewing angle range compared to IPS types. This means that with minimal change in your viewing angle, the screen radically shifts in color and contrast quality.

Most TN paneled monitors are designed and engineered to deliver very bright, punchy colors, very suitable for multi-media entertainment, but not for photo editing.

Also, even if you attempt to hardware calibrate them, by design, they often can't be set to a low enough luminance level. Trying to hardware calibrate some TN paneled monitors introduces issues that weren't even even there before, like weird color casts and banding in gradients.

The positive side... You can sometimes "eyeball calibrate" a TN paneled LCD to a setting which is usable until such time as you're ready for accurate color.

Ok thanks. I tried to calibrate it and it showed no change whatsoever. Even when i adjusted gamma and such in my calibration software. And i did notice the viewing angle. Unfortunatley its the best i have for now
