Default monitor ratios

i like to post threads in the lounge because in the general sect. it usually dissapears quickly.

what are those monitro ratios mean? bigger better, or smaller btr?

EDIT; Moved, you should follow your fellow members advice, I've checked, & the "disappeance" rate is about the same in both areas, CF endeavours to provide it's members with a variety of forums, David set this up years ago, all computer forum sites are roughly the same, it woudn't work if if it was one area where you can post anything.

It depends what ratio you are talking about. Aspect ratios just tell you if you are widescreen or what not (4:3, 16:9). If you are talking about contrast ratiom the bigger the better.

like for example the ratio for this:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009112

wat does contrast ratio 100 to 1 mean? and wats aspect

Yeah, it is against the rules. You have to post your topic in the forum it is meant to go, otherwise there would be no use diving it, and we would have just one forum.

Besides, you are bound to get more technical replies in General.

Examples of reported contrast ratios are 800:1, 700:1, and 500:1 from higher to lower capability. Infinite contrast ratios can be achieved by devices capable of emitting no light at all as their darkest color (so generally the higher the first number, the better). Contrast ratio is most commonly considered in connection with displays that share the same light emitter for all pixels and employ an array of modulators for individual pixels, which manipulate their transmissivity or reflectivity. Technological challenges make it hard to design a mechanism to block 100% of input light in these displays. Additionally, any optics in front of the array of light modulators that can potentially mix the light from different pixels, such as the lens of a DLP/LCD/LCoS projector, will also degrade the contrast ratio. The higher the contrast ratio the better the longshot will look.

Emissive display technologies (where all pixels emit light individually, such as OLED, FED and SED) are capable of achieving a very high contrast ratio. This is also true with CRTs, which have a theoretically infinite contrast ratio and practically achieve such a high contrast ratio that this terminology usually does not refer to them.[1] Plasma displays are subject to contrast ratio because the black areas on a plasma display are not truly black, but emit light due to the need to maintain gas discharge (priming pulse).

Poor contrast ratio manifests itself in the lack of true black, and in noticeably desaturated colors (the darker the supposed color, the stronger the desaturation).

With display systems that support 8-bit color channels, contrast ratio is the ratio of the screen's whitest white (output level 255) to its blackest black (output level 0).[2]

Actually it's not against the rules, but as you say it makes sense to post in the right area, anyway it's academic now, I've moved it.
