    The pricing on these monitors is BS They should have a higher contrast than that considering LG's new monitors cost less and yet they have a 3000:1 contrast ratio:banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Yeah, and the LG's achieve that thru overdrive. Their native contrast isn't anywhere near that. In fact, it's probably right around 800:1.
