That's Dynamic contrast because the laser has the ability to completely shut down instantly the screen can go black. Real would native contrast is around 2000:1. A entry level JVC is 40,000:1 native and over 80,000 for the higher up models. Most lasers are about a $1k premium over equivalent bulb based projectors for single laser but for good color you really need dual laser and most I have seen are in the $10k range. Laser is definitely the future but you don't see them in your higher end projectors until you hit the $30K to $40K range.
