Summary: If you want a high-quality image at an affordable price, and wonâ€™t be needing a digital connection in the near-future, then this is a very good screen for the money. But given the high contrast ratio and generally excellent performance, we canâ€™t help but feel that this screen could have been so much more versatile and future-proof with just one addition to the feature set.
Excerpt: While the majority of specifications of the typical flat-panel may have settled down in recent months, the contrast ratio has remained an ever-moving target. Not so very long ago, LCD screens were happy to wallow in the region of 500:1-700:1. But the likes of LG Electronics and Samsung decided to push the envelope a little, nudging the contrast ratio to 1,000:1 and, from there to 2,000:1 and then 5,000:1. Now the latest 22in LG claims a gigantic 8,000:1 contrast ratio.
