Thanks, repped. So, why is S-IPS or MVA so worrisome?
Solely from what I've read from wikipedia [wikipedia.org]
, S-IPS panels have the best (vertical) viewing angles and color reproduction, followed by MVA, then TN. VA panels also have a slower response time than IPS and TN panels.
I have both Dell S-IPS and TN monitors and for daily use, I don't really notice that much of a difference between them. While I don't doubt S-IPS is a superior technology, I don't think the average end-user is going to notice a difference between the panels; especially if they're not able to compare them side-by-side.
That being said, if you're going to pay the same price for either panel, naturally, everyone is going to want the higher quality (S-IPS) panel.
