The DCR ratio, is the Dynamic Contrast Ratio. It aids in displaying darker images or scenes, by underpowering the LCD's backlight.

For the same price as the LG, why not 2 more inches:
Newegg.com - Acer AL2223Wd Black-Silver 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

The response time, isn't much different from 2ms to 5ms.

I think that 3000:1 is the DCR ratio. The contrast ratio is probably something more like 1000:1...I could be wrong. .....800:1 is not bad though.
