Since I was made privy to the monitor's existence, I've been very curious as to what kind of performance I'd be seeing.
AMVA-based monitors purportedly feature higher contrast ratios than even other MVA monitor types. I knew that going into the review, but I wasn't prepared for exactly how high.
Thanks to its incredibly low black level, which averaged at about 0.04 candelas per square meters, we saw a static contrast ratio of over 4,000:1. Compare this with the Samsung PX2370 with its 948:1 and you can begin to feel the power of that difference.
This didn't translate into perfect performance, however, as I detail in the full review.
Still, as it's available for around $250, it's hard to be too disappointed by anything the EW2420 gets wrong; although, I do my best to find a way.
