    I'm planning to buy a Laptop.
    Most of the monitor while seeing movies, when i view from some angle
    other than straight angle, i see the movie like a negative. I dont see
    it properly. Im looking for a laptop display in which we can from any

    I like DELL laptops and the only reason im not going for it is the
    monitor. What is this parameter called? Please give me some input on

    Viewing angle, and it's an intrinsic fault with LCD displays, some are a
    bit better than others, but none will look as good from the side as they
    do straight on. It's the price to pay for a flat, low power display with
    current technology.

    It's called viewing angle.
    And there are two of them.
    There is a horizontal angle that's symmetrical.

    The vertical viewing angle is smaller and optimized for
    viewing from ABOVE or BELOW. It's called six-o'clock
    or 12-o'clock viewing position. You get either, not both.
    A TFT will be much better than a DSTN display off angle.
    And TFT technology as gotten much better in recent years.

    If you do the research, you'll find that there's a standard
    way of setting up the measurement, but that interpretation varies
    widely. It's like the TV commercial that claims their shampoo
    will give you 2X the highlights. What the heck does that mean???
    It means marketing people are smart and buyers are gullible.

    Don't blame it on DELL. They use different vendor's displays in
    different models. It's not unusual to find different displays
    in the SAME model. You don't normally see viewing angle specs
    on consumer products. And if you did, they'd probably all have
    about the same numbers...but some might have 2X the highlights in
    the marketing info...

    'Bout the only way to tell if you're gonna like the looks of the display
    is to look at the display.

    Do they even make DSTN displays for laptops anymore? I've got a couple
    of fairly low end machines that are TFT.
