There are three main display panel types for screens: IPS, VA and TN panels. Screens with TN panels are best for gaming but these are not the best for your eyes. If you want a monitor that goes easy to your eyes, you should pick a monitor with an IPS panel.

Is that claim that IPS (in-plane switching) monitors are good for eye health by reducing eye strain backed by solid research or is it just a summary of marketing promises?

  • Too low contrast causes eye-strain. That being said, that's a non-issue in modern TN panels. Side note: I'm not aware of any scientific study that'd compare different effect of LCD technologies on eye-strain.

    @vartec If you don't know, you should not add to the confusion by posting yet another claim.

    @pipe it's not "another claim" though, the claimed disadvantage of TN is poor contrast and poor color saturation. Which used to be a problem. A decade ago.
