A LCD monitor with dynamic contrast ratio! 2000:1 is pretty good. It’s just a guess but I’m thinking the CCFL-based backlight has either a local dimming or pulsing capability. The CCFLs are the Wide Color Gamut (WCG-CCFL) variety which is becoming more common. With any LCD monitor that sports more than the typical 72% NTSC I would recommend getting a color calibration tool, especially if you are in a profession that requires accurate colors. You never know what CIE coordinates these monitors have. Other than the features already mentioned, the $289 price seems to be good, but in light of this ‘UltraSharp’ not having RCA inputs to use as a video source for a DVD player, a PS2 and others, I would have liked to see this come out at $249 since it’s only semi-UltraSharp.
