    Igzo panels look great. I think they will quickly replace ips panels. IIRC, sharp has a monopoly on the with their aquos series so that amy never happen. Still, it's the best picture I've seen behind plasma and amoled.

    If they're as good and cheap as they claim to be then everybody should be using them.

    I have had iphones with crappy displays. I opened it up and found out through some research that it was a LG. LG has not been good to me xD.

    I have a 22inch LG 1680x1050 TFT and its been great for the 4 years I have owned it. I also bought a 26inch LG LCD TV (1366x768) 7 years ago to use with my Xbox 360 and its still going strong. I would definitely purchase LG again. Maybe one of us was lucky/unlucky :)

    Their general displays are great. The ones for mobile devices arent that great.
