This monitor from 2012 (8 years ago) looks like a better office/productivity screen than most of the stuff selling today. Do you know any 2019/2020 models with 5000:1 static contrast?
Back in 2012, it seemed like BenQ was devoted almost exclusively to VA:
Said BenQ Australia’s general manager, Chee F. Chung, “Twisted Nematic (TN) LED and In-Plane Switching (IPS) panels only come with a 1000:1 native contrast ratio, where VA LED panels boast an ultra-high native contrast ratio of 5000:1, bringing astonishing colour depth and definition from the brightest whites to the deepest blacks with the greatest subtlety and clarity.
I got that from this: BenQ say: ‘its VA LED all the way!’ Feature 5,000:1 Ultra-High Native Contrast Ratio, 8-Bit Color Performance, True Blacks, and Wide-Angle Viewing: https://www.benq.com/en-au/news/products/1340632800-39-110.html
So what happened? Why is BenQ now satisfied producing 1000:1 contrast IPS units?
