In a few weeks I might be able to afford a 30-32 inch LCD hdtv. I am seeing ads for some models that are in the 600-900 dollar range. But I am a bit put off by the low contrast ratios. Those models have between 500-900:1 contrast ratios.
Am I correct in assuming that those low ratios have an adverse affect on picture quality??? Should I just save some more and try for a model with a much higher ratio??? Or, since I am content to stick with 720p for now, does a lower ratio not have that much of an effect with 30-32 inch 720p displays??
