    I think that’s your biggest problem at the moment :)

    Reading the posts, I would say it depends on what you want from the screen.
    As don svetlio pointed out, if you value color accuracy, viewing angles, brightness, especially if for photo/video editing then IPS is a better choice.
    If you want a screen primarily for gaming, as skidrow point out, the new TN panels offer faster response times, higher refresh rates, and are a lot better than a few years ago in terms of viewing angles and such.
    I would say for a casual gamer that uses the screen a lot for media consumption and or professional or amateur work an IPS panel is a good choice.
    Primarily a gamer? high refresh rates and response times are addictive.

    I've been using the high refresh rate panel for more than 2 months, and I absolutely cannot picture myself ever going back to 60Hz. I guess I'm scr***d. xD

    For the MSI GE73VR (laptop I am awaiting shipping on) these are the Delta E values Notebookcheck.com had for the 120HZ TN panel in the laptop:

    Grayscale: Before Calibration: 3.06, After Calibration: 1.59
    Color: Before Calibration: Avg. 3.09, After Calibration: Avg. 2.12

    Panel also has 100% sRGB and 75% AdobeRGB coverage

    There is nothing wrong with the values on this panel. Most IPS panels are in the same ballpark pre-calibration.

    The GE63 I own also has a Delta-E of 3.4 (before calibration), which according to Notebookcheck, makes it one of the very few TN panels that are suitable for ambitious image-processing.

    Huh, that’s rather fantastic. Certainly a lot better than I remember :)

    The MSI 15 / 17 inch laptops do have a very nice Chimei 94% NTSC TN panel option, not unlike the rare wide gamut TN panel's AUO made 7 years ago. I have seen them in person and they are a very good panel, actually better than most IPS panels if you do not take viewing angles into consideration. They are probably the best option for a gaming laptop as the response time is much better than any of the 120hz IPS panels available.
