Just curious which if any currently available Sony models would be certain to have an IPS panel. I found their panel code reference here that listed IPS, but could not identify any models with the IPS code designation.
I've just noticed with my mom & dad's sony, she has chairs waay out to the side, & the pic looks just as rich from any angle (though i have not confirmed that it is actually an IPS in there). Also, I am clinging to my old thinkpad w/an IPS panel for as long as possible for the same reason vs. any other notebook I've used. So between those observations & reading reviews about having to sit perpendicular to so many panels to preserve colors etc. I'd like an IPS, & prefer to stick with sony.
LG would have to be from a B&M store because I don't want to play the buy & return lottery for a "W" serial number, & the Panasonic lCD reviews don't seem quite as favorable, but at least you know you're getting an IPS when their website tells you that's what's in there. MIght take some convincing/educating to go with Vizio.
Not going to be too picky about type "alpha", & want to leave price & size out of the equation for the moment just to see what my options are. Flexible in that regard.
Prefer ccfl over led backlighting, but that's low priority as that's the direction they're headed now & want to keep options open. Same with 60/120/240Hz etc.
Any input/advice appreciated.
