Question Is "PS Technology TFT LCD" a "proper IPS"?

@Captain Discombobulate,

Thanks for replying. I appreciate it.

Could you please elaborate? - How do you know the Viewsonic is a VA panel?
I wonder if they're going off the model name, but Viewsonic has a few other IPS panel models with a "VA" in their model name.

However, the biggest sign to me it's an IPS panel is its advertised static contrast ratio of 1000:1. As far as I can tell, most other manufacturers will advertise their VA panels as having a static contrast ratio of 3000:1 and the biggest selling point for VA is its higher contrast ratio.
