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:

cheers

So this is basically a marketing ploy by ASUS to seem better than they really are huh?

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.
