Dynamic...yes but any professional calibrator out there will tell you to disable anything that is suppose to "improve" the contrast because it hurts the picture overall. Brand new LCDs have a static contrast of about 3000:1, and this is top of the line ($2,700+) TVs. I just put together a new $10,000 HT setup and there was no HDTV near a static contrast ratio of 15000:1 that I saw.

Think about it... we are talking MILLIseconds here!
My monitor is (afaicr) 5 - 8ms and shows no tearing or artifacting whatsoever. Also my friend has a 15ms monitor that drops no frames, no tearing, no ghosting. (An LG 17" which I bought for her for her birthday)
It is kind of like when back in the day peeps were bragging about theiur 120fps yet they were running monitors (CRT) @ 100hz
THEREFORE LOSING 20 fps.
Keep in mind that those are Gray-to-Gray measurements usually. Black-to-White and White-to-Black are usually noticable on any LCD because they take ALOT longer to switch than Gray-to-Gray. I wish they would start giving more response time rather than just one.
