    20,000,000:1 !!! Do numbers this outrageous fool anyone anymore? or just look like a pathetic attempt to out-do the next guy.

    Anyways if this was a 1920x1200 monitor I'd be ordering it right now. As it is 1080... pass

    Not a bad price, the Samsung VA costs double and isnt LED backlit. 1080p doesnt worry me, I'd rather have quality over real estate.

    Not bad and looks good. I am wanting to move to an LED monitor myself.

    At least here rob they say its the dynamic contrast ratio. A lie to be sure when in truth it should be around 1000-2500 : 1. They do this with TVs all the time. Bigger numbers must be better right? LOL.

    This thing is definitely a winner, just too bad they didn't put in the extra effort and add height adjustments. :banghead:
    Where will this thing actually be available? They don't list it on the USA site.

    I thought the 20,000,000:1 thing was because it's LED and the colors are crazy vibrant and deep or something.

    Yeah, I was getting all excited too - till I spotted the 8ms response time. That sure ain't a gama's paradise... :ohwell:
