Monitor/Build

Ok im building a new rig for gaming and im just a little confused on the monitor. Im currently looking at the:

ASUS VS248H-P

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236153&Tpk=VS248H-P

But my question is that this monitor is listed at 50mil:1 contrast ratio? is that right?! most of the monitors i look at for 24' dont even come close to that. For example

Samsung S24A350H

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001482

Dell P2411H

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260027

All these higher end brands are below 1mil contrast ratio. Am i seeing wrong? or is there a difference between the numbers? Any help would be great. Trying to get an LED that's reliable and under 250, 24'

  1. You are looking at the dynamic contrast ratio, which tends to be in the million to one ratios; the common contrast ratio though is 1000:1, which is fairly good.
  2. I have the P2411H and it's a fantastic display. It's very vibrant, even when I compare it to my old Asus VG236H (3D monitor with insane colors), but it also has a slightly matted display that eliminates reflections without distorting the colors.

    Also had 3x Dell E2011Hs, so maybe I'm just a Dell display fanboi, but I buy them for a reason ;)
  3. i agree being a dell/hp/samsung fan. Always have been. But im just a little confused about the contrast ratio numbers they are providing me. not sure how to tell what has a higher ratio when they all tell me different types of ratios with different numbers.

  4. The contrast ratio of the Asus is their own "Asus Smart Contrast Ratio." I have no idea what makes it special.

    Samsung's is a dynamic CR. Dunno about Dell's though. You'll find more info on the manufacturers' pages than you will Newegg.
