    To clarify here in case anyone's confused: "RED" is the model line for New 3DS XL. The system model number is RED-001. (Standard New 3DS is KTR.)

    Your head
    Also I'll expand RED for you. It stands for "infraRED", the internal codename for the New 3DS XL.

    Two different technologies commonly considered part of the "LCD" screen family

    Generally speaking, IPS has a larger viewing angle (before colors and contrast get significantly altered) and better colors than TN, which has better response time
    (of course, individual variation between batches, different manufacturers, and different design generations are also factors)

    Nintendo uses both in 2/3DS consoles (depending on what they stocked the factories with at any given time), and a small number of vocal people make a big fuss if they got the "inferior" one (these people are part of the reason instruction manuals of cars and tech products say "specifications may vary" in their tech figures page)

    So it honestly doesn't matter what screen type you have in the long run?

    That's inherently subjective, but Nintendo's actions (using both types) shows that they believe that, in regular use of the 3DS*, they are equivalent

    * a completely separate example, but one to illustrate "believe... in regular use of": how many non-homebrew, non-cfw users do typically meddle with their N3DS SD card often enough to complain that it's under 2 screws?

    it matters if you care, search in youtube for IPS vs TN, there is a damn huge difference in the image quality

    There isn't really that much difference in the image quality on the 3DS, both are relatively cheap versions of the screen, and viewing angle isn't a huge deal on the 3DS given that it's a handheld game console.

    Also, the 3DSs with TN screens tend to have a longer battery life, so it's really a wash even with the very slightly improved quality of the IPS monitors.

    I own both IPS and TN 3DSs and there's really not that big a difference.

    Great app, however on my new 2ds the GUI version does not load up. It just has some colored pixels in the lower left corner of the top screen.
    The only way to get out is to force shut-down the system.

    Yeah, weirdly enough the regular 3dsx version boots into a crash dump for me. Gonna roll back to an earlier one.

    I recall the final build or two not working (3dsx versions). Roll back to an earlier one.

    I recommend against rolling back. Do you have CFW installed on your 3ds?

    Zero apologies for bumping this thread....

    I recently purchased a New 3DS XL Galaxy Style from the USA, yeah I know they're old but I still love this console and always wanted this design.

    Now I ran 3dsident on the console and it tells me that both upper and lower panels are TN which really shocked me because I would swear that the upper screen is IPS becuase it looks that good.

    I've also had many, many New 3DS XL's pass through my hands over the years, perhaps 25+ and have seen IPS and TN's many times so my eye is fairly well trained tbh, which is why I am so shocked

    I messaged Joel16 and he states that the software is 100% accurate (I have no reason to doubt such a well respected developer nor the software as I've always trusted it) but this upper panel just seems so nice

    Cannot get my head around it, but the software clearly states upper and lower TN

    Has anybody else every encountered a situation where you believe you have an IPS but the software tells you otherwise ?
