Please don't bother with dynamic ratio #'s. Static or bust.

 

I guess if you absolutely must, then try to compare it to something else with both ratios listed so we can get an idea closer to the truth.

Sorry to break it to you guys, but Viewsonic has had for a while now, something along these lines, but better:

http://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-VX1932wm-LED-19-Inch-WLED-Backlit-Efficient/dp/B002R0JJY4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1265397304&sr=8-1

 

It has a 10,000,000 dynamic contrast, a higher res of 1680*1050, and it's only $130 with shipping.

Didn't you just say yesterday:

"Unfortunately, the manufacturers’ propensity for using different
methodologies and unstated variables in their measurements has
effectively rendered this specification meaningless. The industry has
further muddied the waters by introducing entirely new variations of
this measurement, such as dynamic contrast ratio. We recommend you
ignore this spec when comparing LCD monitors."

Then you post an article praising a high contrast ratio?  I love you guys, and have for years, but are things getting bumpy without Will around any more or something?

 it's still tech news, so it's reported. OR should the nee sub $100 ati dx11 card get no coverange because it's too low end?

To clarify, we're not "praising" BenQ's monitor or contrast ratio, but reporting on a new product announcement.

Sounds like the perfect third display to go along with my two 24" Glossy LCDs!

i don't think these screen are meant for you. ths high contrass would come in handy for content creation, maybe image editing or something.

the problem is these are far too small to be useful at all in either content creation or image editing
