This flatpanel monitor has a Mega Contrast dynamic contrast ratio, which is the most frequently found dynamic contrast ratio on medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The S24A850DW is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years are also not 3D compatible.

PC screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which is also higher rated.
