Its how bright the screen is, in general, the brighter it is, the better the picture, but also the higher the cost.

Its usually like how much difference there is between white and black, ie, how much brightness the screen can display.

Some screens can be too bright though, but of course the brightness can be turned down, but if the screen isnt as bright as you would like it when at maximum setting, it cant be turned up lol.

Go for as bright as is within your budget.
