    Hello,

    I'm looking at getting an LCD tv for my living room over the next few months and was wondering what the are the best specs to look for are.

    I'm looking at around a 40" + size screen.

    What is contrast ratio ?

    I've seen some advertised as 800:1 or 1300:1.

    Is higher or lower better ?

    On paper higher is better, if the manu is telling truth, and there is 2, 1st is actual brightness and 2nd is dynamic brightness (always higher)

    The number 800:1 means there is 800 shades from the whitest white to the blackest black.
