Default hmm...

i must say....2000:1 contrast ratio on that first one...seems like a little overkill. besides if your watching any movies or even gaming...you could quite actually lose a bit of field of view. i personally would go with the 931B. 700:1 ratio. 250 brightness. 8 ms response time....19 inches. Its up to you...but like i said 2000:1 ratio is nuts....

The 931B is solid. You won't be dissapointed. But I cannot compare to the other as I have not seen it.
