Yes, 98% of LCDs do look dull to me when compared to the higher end models. Remember we are talking about $36,000 here, extreme high end. 1,000:1 is not acceptable.
My HX929 has a native
contrast ratio of roughly 4400:1 and thats with it's local dimming disabled. It's around 7600:1 with it enabled. Google for some reviews if you don't believe me. It cost me $3,150 and it's 55". Sure it's 1080p and not 4k x 2k, but who cares. Nothing is at 4k x 2k resolution yet, and gaming at such a extreme resolution would require one beast of a computer. There is nothing to justify this monitor's $36,000 price tag.
Source? Google for reviews on my TV and other new high end 2011 models. I don't need to give you proof that 1000:1 native contrast is crap and has been for some time. My 5 year old 24" had a native contrast ratio of 1300:1, and cost $600 at the time.

Ezio makes some of the best displays money can buy. I'm glad to finally see someone pushing the envelope with new higher resolution panel. 2560x1600 has been around for nearly a decade.
*figured I should clarify: At any reasonable brightness. No doubt you could achieve 7000:1 by burning out the viewers retinas.
Maybe do some research before claiming I need a reality check. To start, there's no "true" way to measure contrast ratio. It's estimated. Many of the new highest end TVs that just came out are around 4000:1. They will cost you around 3 grand. Brightness has nothing to do with contrast ratio, burning out the viewers retinas? I'm really not sure what you are trying to imply but you clearly do not understand what contrast ratio means. No offense, but it seem's like i'm not the one that needs the reality check.Edited by Murlocke - 6/21/11 at 1:44am
