The highest contrast ratio of the K242HLA is 100000000:1. That's over twenty times the contrast ratio of the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 5000000:1.
A 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is actually the best contrast ratio amongst all PC monitors that are a similar age to the K242HLA.
A Mega Contrast dynamic contrast ratio is the worst contrast ratio across similar types of PC monitor.
We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC monitors that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and we think because of it's better review score, the H277HU, and the G257HU ($221.99) both from Acer is also worth considering.
