BenQ XL2410/11/20 Club - Page 65

post #641 of 750
Just got mine yesterday! As someone who has used a crappy LG LED display for about 2 years, this is a HUGE upgrade for me. I love it so far!

My only gripe is the brightness right now, makes my desktop look very strange, need to mess with settings some more.
post #642 of 750
Yeah the brightness is excessive even at 0. It only took me three replacements from Amazon to get one without defects lol.

Has anyone tried overclocking the BenQ monitor? Will it damage it or have any kind of negative effects?

Its already 144hz, don't think anyone has really tried to overclock it. The lightboost hack at 120hz is better than crt with no blur so no need to (If you have an Nvidia card that is).

Well as said before (but had no time to take a photo and my cam's phone isn't that good), so i remembered to put a print screen of my beloved Benq Xl 2411t smile.gif
Also put my setting of nvidia control panel if someone would like to test it.




Yes brightness is too bright even on zero, but you have to toggle the graphics card control panel to put it "darker"
Also if you have f.lux installed and even if you exit the application, when you change your options on you graphics control panel, you won't be able to see the changes, since flux reproduces some kind of milky gamma...
Just hope i can join the club smile.gif

OT: Well I have a NVIDIA card but i can't get lightboost for some reason. I have a GTX 275. Do I have a good enough graphic's card or am I just **** out of luck and need to upgrade?

Back to the topic, I have both the XL2411T and the XL2410 biggrin.gif

I believe you need a GTX500 or greater card. IIRC

Having owned a XL2420T for some time I recently bought a XL2420TX as a second screen.

My problem is that I am unable to select the 'Emitter Mode' in the screen's menu, it's greyed out. Can someone list the factors that cause this option to be greyed out? Do I need to use a certain picture mode etc? I am using the DVI lead that came with the screen, which I have confirmed is a DVI-D.

Please help!

Got the XL2420TX two days ago, huge upgrade from a 10 year old CRT Samsung 753.


The monitor seems to work perfectly with the PC but with my PS3 - connected using a 1.3b HDMI -, for some reason headscratch.gif , is acting funny, the picture is greying (like on the old TV's when the cable is off) again and again(every 1-5 sec) -not completely but the picture in the bottom half - at 1080p input. At 1080i it gets even worse frown.gif , the whole screen is greying out from time to time(every 1-3 sec) while at 720p(the resolution of games) the screen, except for the top most part, is completely greyed out. The problem vanishes at 576p, but I didn't buy a monitor to work at this resolution mad.gif . Also along with the greying, the audio also stops/lags.
I checked every input port with the computer and there seems to be no problem with the ports on the monitor.


Googled for this and found nothing. The only problem with the PS3's HDMI is when opening a game i.e. changing the resolution from 1080p to 720p the TV's/monitors don't pick up the signal.


Could there be a problem with the PS3 or the monitor? Have anyone of you had or heard of this type of problem?


I have also ordered a 1.4b HDMI just to be sure it's not the problem.

It actually works on many older Geforce cards. I heard someone activated LightBoost on a Geforce 8800 -- I've forgotten how many centuries ago that nVidia card was manufactured. You do need the latest nVidia drivers that enables 3D Vision.

That said, older cards usually won't get the framerates necessary to benefit the most from LightBoost. You ideally want 120fps at 120Hz, or at least 100fps at 100Hz (the minimum refresh rate that LightBoost mode supports). The difference between CRT vs LCD is most amplified when framerates matches refresh rates, and the same is true for LightBoost. Otherwise, you get too much stutter/judder (even at the micro level) to benefit from the LightBoost effect. The LightBoost effect just gradually diminishes when your framedrate drops towards half refresh rate, and returns when your framerate comes back approaching the refresh rate. It's roughly akin to the transition between 30fps@60Hz CRT to 60fps@60Hz CRT; you can really clearly see the transition on CRT's (moreso than you can on most traditional LCD's). LightBoost is similiar to CRT in the "fps=Hz" benefit too -- where 60fps@60Hz CRT and 120fps@120Hz CRT both have clearer motion than 60fps@120Hz CRT. (I'm speaking of motion clarity only; not other behaviours like colors or input lag, etc.).
