This isn't back in 2001-2003 where the market was flood with el cheapo TNs that had terrible color saturation, viewing angles, ghosting etc. TN panels have improved from then. Properly calibrated units are almost as good any IPS panel. Likewise, IPS are just about as fast as TN. You need specialized tools and tests to notice any difference.
Proper screen calibration, source material, room lighting make a far greater impact on color accuracy then anything else. People are just too lazy to properly calibrate their screens. A miscalibrated display looks like crap no matter what technology it uses. I remember back when most of the world where on monochrome displays and you only had three choices: white, amber and green.
I don't think IPS and TN are that close, but even with a bevy of relatively cheap TN's at my disposal usually arranged around an HP 30" IPS, I can say that once calibrated and angle adjusted to seating position, they're far from unusable.
Still, I don't think I could bring myself to buy another TN, as I'm too interested in photography.
