    Are these figures good or bad

    Response time 16 ms
    Viewing angle 89 degrees
    Contrast ratio 1000:1

    The viewing angle seems a bit low? Are these acceptable figures?

    The higher the contrast ratio the better, correct? Most of the lcd tv's I have seen are 800:1 but the dell is 1000:1!

    Bear in mind that there is almost no consistancy between manufacturer's quoted CR figures. There's more than one way to get a figure, and let's face, who's going to stick with the ISO method, if competitors are using their own method to make their claim of having a higher CR?
    Don't buy on the strength of numbers - rely on your eyes to tell you the absolute truth.
