    no system is guaranteed to have a ips screen. you cant even tell the differance when playing games. and ips isnt much better than tn.

    So buy one, if you get IPS, then good for you, if you get TN go to your corner and cry, if you get one of each, pat yourself on the back :toot::grog::toot:

    I have used tn and ips screens and there is a huge difference when you go from ips to tn , people who don't own a ips screen will tell you there's almost no difference

    Oi mate, you guys (across the pond) have the chance of buying a New3ds for £80, our Amazon sells them for £160, so quit whining.

    If you like playing games at Weird Angles than IP screens are the best. Other than that, there's barely any difference between tn and ip/

    First off, I'm not picky by any means. I picked up a monster hunter bundle few months ago. I set it side by side with my N3DS XL Hyrule with IPS screen. The different is very visible, I don't even have to eye-ball it to find the different. The depth, color, contrast just pops out on the IPS screen. I am so disappointed that I have to return it. There are alot of website compare TN and IPS screens, to me, they are not exaggerating at all, the different between IPS and TN is that much.

    So, to OP, if possible, find them and set both screen side by side and decided for yourself. Ever since knowing the difference, any TN system is a deal breaker for me. You can't listen to others' preferences to make choice for you. You only buy one system for years, may as well get the most out of your money. It is a hassle, but you will only go through the trouble once.

    Couldn't agree more, the different between IPS and TN is so much noticeable.

    IPS is better? Debateable, it maybe better for different people. If they say they don't like the high contrast of IPS screen and prefer the natural color of TN, that is understandable. But to say there is barely any difference is a little too much. I mean, how can you missed it, they are so much different.

    Only thing where you're going to notice difference is if you're going to play your 3DS from various angles, which most likely you won't. So you shouldn't worry about which screen you're getting. Both of them will make their job.

    I have a few New3DS's which I tested with the homebrew screen checker.

    I was surprised that of the 3 models I tried only one had the IPS top screen. :wtf:

    Some say the differences between TN and IPS are very noticeable. :wacko:

    For me I look mainly straight on and they seem very similar. :huh:

    Don't be too worried if you get a TN. It's still a high quality unit. :)

    The look of the IPS screens on my Hyrule Gold console is great. I had a Majora's Mask console at one point and it only had top IPS and bottom TN. Having both screens as IPS is really nice as I can look at them from most angles and still see proper non-washed out colors
