Honestly i didnt think it was a joke because the asus monitor has more contrast meaning it has a brighter picture and more accurate at producing the true colors over the samsung giving the picture a much more detailed experience. Not to mentition its cheaper and has the same features or not better than most of the samsung displays atm.

If the manufacturing markets were worthless about this why would they bother promoting it if it wasnt true?

To lure people like you in thinking it's a better product because of bigger numbers. Remember, there is no "enforced set" standard when it comes to contrast and response rate. They could be pulling the # out of their butts of all we know.

Dare I say it but less boobies, more education on monitors:

http://www.maximumpc.com/article/fea...yths_shattered

read all 5 pages. Thanks. a brighter picture is not better. Most colour profiles actually decrease brightness as tbh, the default setting on most monitors is far too high.

oh btw, the mobo is overpriced overkill and lol @ 24GB RAM. You aren't running a business server off your computer are you? Games do not benefit from over 4GB of RAM. It's been throughly tested.

oh by the way:

Author of the article. I'd trust his expertise over marketing. Less letting your female donkey do the talking, more education and being informed.

Remember when shopping for an led display that a backlit led does offer superb picture quality, better then the Edge Lit also look for a Thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD display) which is a variant of liquid crystal display (LCD) which uses thin-film transistor (TFT) technology to improve image quality.
More information about this technology can be explained here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TFT_LCD
I hope this has helped.

insane contrast numbers are nothing but a marketing ploy used to sell displays to the uneducated masses and mean basically nothing. These numbers do not translate to real world performance. Buying a display because of the manufacturer's stated contrast numbers is like buying a $150 monster hdmi cable just because the BS jargon on the package made you believe it is superior to a $5 cable. Google it.

Yep. That is the manufacturer "manufactured" 'dynamic contrast' ratio, meaning the monitor lowers or raises the (backlight) brightness depending on how to dark the image is to potentially maximize the static contrast ratio in that image/scene. From what I've read, most monitors don't even implement this correctly. Those that do typically get only a small (compared to the insanely ridiculous claims of the manufacturers) contrast benefit, but can lead to other issues with the image. Anyway, in general, make sure you read up on multiple reviews of the same panel and do not assume a monitor is in the top echelon of its class solely based on the manufacturer.

LED monitors run cooler (Do not give off heat like CCFL backlit monitors). I hated my CCFL backlit monitor, they ran too hot.

Youre selling the aw2310 because you dont use 120hz 3d? What about 120hz 2d? I just pulled the trigger on one of these bad boys biggrin.gif Got 50 bucks off from dell too.
