This might just be me but.. i prefer chunkier screens of say, 2-3CM in thinkness because it lets me know it's strong enough to take geek rage at LAN's (Sometimes people bang their tables when they get annoyed, shaking screens across the table).

Infinite contrast ratio is possible if you can turn a pixel completely off. Impossibly thin, but look at those bezels, they are completely average.

this is perfect for eyefinity.
 
Im assuming infinite contrast is their way of saying it can do perfect white and black at the same time. Since this is an OLED which will not require a back light since the light source is the screen then yeah I guess in a way it has infinite contrast or proably more acuratly near perfect contrast. A 600Mhz refresh rate is pretty damn impressive as well.

[citation][nom]chaosgs[/nom]Is "Infinite Contrast Ratio" even possible?[/citation]

No, it's just marketing BS like 1,000,000:1 contrast ratios and the like, or reverse whatever they're doing now all it is, is meant to confuse customers and sucker them into looking at the numbers w/ bigger = better.

Interestingly enough, this is the one case where you're wrong. The ridiculous dynamic contrast ratios advertised by LCDs are 100% marketing BS, and there is not really any difference between the ones advertising 10k:1 and 500k:1. However, since this is OLED, the black areas of the screen genuinely are black, with zero light emission. This gives an effectively infinite contrast ratio, and it doesn't even need any marketing BS to do it.
