How bright is the display?

0

Brightness is usually measured in cd/m2, which is somehow pronounced “nits”, which essentially is a measurement of candlepower over a square meter area. Standard off-the-shelf displays are 200-250cd/m2, while High Brightness (HB) displays are 1,000cd/m2 or more. You should never compare SB prices of one manufacturer against HB prices on the same size monitor from a competing manufacturer—you’re paying for brightness, not size. If you’re quoted an unbelievable price, it’s definitely for a Standard Brightness monitor—ask the salesman how much the High Bright model is. Also, keep in mind that a 500 nit monitor is absolutely NOT twice as bright as a 250. Light increases logarithmically. That means it takes four times the original number of nits to become twice as bright. 2.
