Try testing out LightBoost 120Hz; the ghosting will pretty much disappear.
Standard 60 Hz LCD
Standard 120 Hz LCD : 50% less motion blur
120 Hz LightBoost : ~90% less motion blur
Also, even 100Hz LightBoost has less motion blur than 144Hz:
In addition, for a good explanation of sample-and-hold, see Why Do Some OLED's Have Motion Blur?
. It is a good explanation of the sample-and-hold effect (common to LCD's) and how it contributes to motion blur.
When LightBoost is enabled, the backlight is turned off while waiting for pixels to transition (high speed video
). The backlight is strobed on fully refreshed frames. This bypasses LCD pixel speed limitations as the motion blur limiting factor, and the visibility of ghosting/overdrive/etc is eliminated. So it flickers like a 120Hz CRT, but the motion blur is now below human perceptible levels. Also, you no longer see the LCD ghosting effects, as seen in the pictures above, and at LCD Motion Artifacts 101
For instructions on VG248QE, see the LightBoost HOWTO
. The ToastyX method is the easiest (3 minute quick enable of LightBoost, less input lag, no Control+T compromises).Edited by mdrejhon - 6/4/13 at 6:29pm
