    what the heck is "asus ascr"

    im looking at this new monitor on newegg:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236037
    and it says CR: 5000:1 (ASCR) so i looked on their site, but there are no technical details just the basic marketing crap

    does anyone know if this "ASCR" is comparable to a normal CR value such as 2500:1?

    im basically stuck between that asus and this acer:

    It's just another name for dynamic contrast ratio. Depending on the level, it could be an 800:1 screen, or a 2000:1 screen.
