The W2042TQ-BF sports a 1680 x 1050 pixel format (same thing as ‘resolution’) and has a decently bright display at 300 cd/m2 (or ‘nits’). Don’t bother about the 8000:1 dynamic contrast ratio because that’s only kind of important when you’re watching movies on it. And even if you were since the entire backlight is being dimmed or brightened the contrast doesn’t improve all that much: a bit, but not a whole lot. Viewing angles are decent at 170/170–what this means is that you can still view stuff on the LCD with a contrast ratio of 10:1 or larger at that angle. So it’s pretty good. Response time is an ultra-quick 2ms so it’ll be good for you guys that play a lot of games.
