No, still wrong.
"By comparison, Samsung's SM226CW 22in LCD monitor, which uses DCR, but has a 3000:1 contrast ratio, retails for around £170 (€193/$315)"
£170 converts to €239/$350.
Your conversion from pounds to dollars is wrong. No monitor would be sold for $85 if it had a 5000:1 CR.
I don't know about the Euro conversion though.
Re:TV's barely showing up with HDMI/HDCP!?
"And as for it not being a TV... i'm lost, it says it's next generation so of course it is, it'll merely upscale and interlace existing resolutions - much like HD Compatible/Ready sets do to display 1080i etc"
The only time the article says next generation is "It has unveiled the world’s first 30in LCD display, capable of providing a 2560 x 1600 resolution through the next-generation DisplayPort video interface."
Notice the fact that next generation applies to the interface, not the monitor.
Also you say its going to upscale the existing resolutions. The article has no mention of this ability in the monitor at all.
"1080p will become 257879867836579843p before long and Blu Ray and HD-DVD will have to change everything!"
No 1080p will stay for a while since true 1080p tv programming is just now arriving.
It is not a TV!
It is meant to be used as a computer monitor. It could be used as a TV, if a display port to HDMI adapter comes out.
