Gateway’s new LED monitors claim earth-shattering contrast ratios

Slim and LED has been the new black for quite some time now in the monitor market, so it comes as little surprise that Gateway is entering that particular subset of the market in a big way.


Today, Gateway announced three new LED-based monitors in three models: the 21.5-inch Gateway FHX2152L, the 24-inch Gateway FHX2402L, and the 23-inch Gateway FHD2303L.

According to Gateway, the new monitors will each have a 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio (meh) and, in an earth-shattering turn of events, each will also have a native resolution of 1,920×1,080 pixels!! Hmmm, I may have gotten my reaction to each of those specs mixed up. Maybe.

Seriously, I’ll be sure to confirm that 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio as soon as we–OK, let’s just be clear: that contrast ratio is not happening. We’ll see how close they can get, though.

The FHX and FHD are specced with a 2ms and 5ms response time, respectively, with both models delivering 250 candelas per square meter brightness, (yeah, I’ll eat my DVI cable if that 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio happens).
