If I turn a pixel off vs make it show pure white, the ratio is infinity. Hence, big numbers like that literally mean nothing. Please do more research!
The advertised ratios are a scam. The dynamic part... not always. I find it useful for certain games to use the "Game" setting on my monitor which does include DCR. And yes, its properly calibrated. Still helps with games that are particularly dark/murky without blowing out the light scenes. Not all monitors implement it well enough to bother using, but I find the U2412M does.
