I haven't looked through the whole thread. I'm looking for a new gaming monitor. Should I get this one or rather the XL2420/11T? Does Asus monitors offer something similar to Benq's Black EQ?

Have you considered a LightBoost monitor, including this ASUS VG248QE? Having LightBoost 120Hz has over 75% less motion blur than non-LightBoost 120Hz!. The LightBoost strobe backlight is turned off while waiting for pixels to transition. So pixel persistence is completely bypassed as a motion blur limiting factor -- youtube high speed 1000fps video proof.
This makes LCD more like a CRT.

Having zero motion blur on LCD greatly improves your brain reaction time in games such as Quake Live, TF2, BF3, and a number of other games. There is a number of rave reviews about LightBoost improving their game, and is a big improvement to some people's competitive gaming.

Input lag is important too, but don't forget to include human brain lag too (caused by motion blur)

Attention -- to people in this thread.
Some magazines/websites are starting to test ASUS VG248QE monitors -- which has LightBoost.

Please contact your favourite monitor reviewer website to make sure they test LightBoost.
We need to tell them to test LightBoost motion blur more often, and test motion tests! Contact your favourite magzine/reviewer/bloggers.

Click the "Contact Us" feature of your favourite magazine and blog websites, and let them know to test this feature next time they review a LightBoost monitor!
More and more people need to review this technology. I'm happy that a few reviewers (TechNGaming, PCGamesHardware) are starting to slowly cover this, and this AnandTech article has a brief acknowledgement LightBoost eliminates motion blur. Over the year, I expect more snowballing of coverage to happen, especially when eager-awaited easy motion tests launch and revolutionize how future displays are tested by reviewers and bloggers! However, we need more reviewers to at least test the LightBoost feature, on more magazines, more bloggers, more websites, etc. (Note: Including Overclock.net, if they also test monitors, too)

*** EDIT ****
They don't have to publish these links -- nor links to me -- They just need to learn about how LightBoost works, in order to understand it, before being able to review it. They do not have to promote me, but to be able to gain a better understanding of this technology, and how motion blur is eliminated by various methods (increased Hz, motion interpolation, strobe/flicker technologies like CRT, plasma, or LightBoost) and what is game-compatible and what is not game-compatible.

I just got mine in today! Love it! I just ran a quick match of Black Ops 2 and Holy Crap!

I was going to do a video for you guys but my Droid 3 just started acting up and I couldn't find the other camera, so I only got to the un boxing until it crapped out on me.

What do you have to compare it to/did you use lightboost/how the hell is it?

Colours, antiglare, viewing angles? Flickering?

Ive been scanning this thread for the past few days while monitor shopping. Its been OOS this whole time, but Amazon just had two in stock for $279. By the time I added to cart and got to check out it was one in stock, and I think (hope) I got the last one.


Ive had tons of good monitors, and havent seen any real pics/vids/reviews for this, so when it comes, Ill be sure to do so. I was going to pull the trigger on an OCable Korean 27in, but decided to give this a try first. If its defective in any way (pixels, bad backlighting), or I dont like it, then itll go back, and Ill go 27in. Still might anyway, just because Im not a online FPS player. Mostly play RPGs/MMOs/Action games. Ive had a couple surround setups, many IPS/VA screens, a couple 27in 2560 monitors, etc... but never got to try 120Hz+.

I really just want to let you guys know how Freaking unbelievable this is! just WOW! So smooth and not only that its almost like the colors and texture are more vivid too!

I haven't tweaked around with the monitor settings, when you first plug it in the desktop doesn't look great using out the box settings.... but the games just looks amazing.

Its so nice to be able to play Black Ops 2 with out Vsync at 60 FPS.... I got BO2 caped at 120 and I haven't had no screen tearing at all, its just amazing

I got mine biggrin.gif Just played a round of Bf3, it is amaaaaazzzing! wheee.gif
144hz is so unbelievably better than 60hz. Even before I'm used to the slightly different sensitivity due to the different screen size and on my first round before I was warmed up I played extremely well.

I can't try the lightboost because I have AMD :/
The stock colors suck even compared to my old crappy TN, but after some tweaking they're about as good, and after some more they'll probably be better.
There is a little bit of backlight bleed, but I wouldn't have even noticed it if I wasn't looking for it.
Antiglare is fine to me, I can't stand glossy screens
Viewing angles are fine, I don't know why people make such a big deal over them, you should be sitting in front of your monitor anyways.
I don't see any flickering.
The stand is awesome especially compared to my old monitor. Height adjust is awesome, and pivot may come in use. It feels sturdy.

It really does make it feel like a whole new experience, doesn't it? And with the greatly reduced trailing textures remain much sharper and colours don't blur into one another which helps the colours look much more solid when gaming.
