The VC279H-W has a maximum contrast ratio of 80000000:1. That's over sixteen times the contrast ratio of the most frequently found dynamic contrast ratio of 5000000:1. The best contrast ratio of all medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VC279H-W is 100000000:1 and the worst is Mega Contrast.
We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens that have an 80000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC G2460VQ6, and the Asus VX279N is also worth considering.
If the contrast ratio of this flatpanel monitor is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the H277HU (100000000:1), or the G257HU ($213.99) (100000000:1) both from Acer which also has a higher Rating.
