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.

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