Just posting my thanks to all who have contributed to this thread. As of last night I am now rocking the vg248qe without the ag coating, 120hz light boost using the toastyX cru config method, with tuba's ICC 2d gaming profile and man this thing is stunning, I am fazed at how smooth it looks. Running 1 680, BF3 at 720p, it's like a veil has been lifted.. Seriously feels like a wiped a layer of dust away and I am now looking through a crystal clear window, colOrs and saturation are now amazing (I have a xl2420t with the ag on if I ever need a side by side reminder heh).
Points of importance:
- if you do the ag removal mod take your time and seriously, WAIT the 5 hours, there were a few times where I wa growing impatient and wanted to try peeling the coating prematurely (2-3 hour mark).
- Make sure you have your microfiber cloth and tools ready, and a clean workspace, and TAKE your time, dissassembling, peeling, and reassembling, the end result will be so worth it
- I found the cru method with light boost enabled all the time to be the least laggy and painless to setup by far
- I am currently running light boost @ 10%, 65 contrast, with the ag coating it feels pretty much the same as non lightboost mode in terms of brightness and clarity. With the ag off I swear I am seeing things ALOT clearer, the display quality literally feels 100x better and more responsive now, simply an amazing setup for competitive gaming.
Again many many thanks, it's a whole new ball game now Edited by xcelerate - 4/23/13 at 7:17am
