Contrast Ratio ??

  Ritchbee 14:17 23 Dec 2005

Looking to purchase a 19" TFT in the near future and have looked at these two makes.

Viewsonic VX924 550:1
Samsung SM930Bf 700:1

Does the variation in ratio of 150 between them
make any difference.

Anyone recommend any other makes ?.

Cheers & and a Merry Xmas to one and all

Hi Ritchbee. In a monitor there is no such thing as absolute black, and the contrast ratio is the ratio of the amount of light at the brightest displayed white to the darkest displayed black. The larger the ratio figure the crisper the display will be under ideal viewing conditions. Whether you will see the difference between 550:1 and 700:1 under normal viewing conditions I can't say, but 700:1 is the largest figure I've heard of.
