Confused re: Dell's lcd monitors

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

I was looking over the specs on Dells Ultrasharp 17" LCD monitors. There's a
1704FPT and a 1704FPV, each with different specs.
The FPT has a 500:1 contrast ratio,13 response time, 300 nits brightness.
The FPV has a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 280 cd/m brightness, 25ms response
time.

It's difficult to compare nits with cd/m and what do FPT and FPV mean? This
is very confusing to me. Which is the better computer monitor? I want a DVI
input and don't care about watching TV or DVD movies on the computer.

    Hi,
    FPT is better for people who wants to play games or watch/make movies thanks
    to its low response time.
    On the other hand, it has lower view angle.

    The FPV, is better for people wanting to work with still pictures, with
    higher color restitution.
    I've personnally chosen the FPT as the response time is for me the most
    important factor,
    as the 500:1 contrast ratio is far enough for me.

    Regards
