What image quality metric?
For colors, it's roughly similar after calibration.
For motion blur, it totally blows it out of the water -- there is no contest. Especially with LightBoost turned on, it has more than 75% less motion blur than the VG236H. Some people have put away their Sony FW900 CRT's now -- because it looks just like a CRT in motion (even if not color)

Using NVIDIA driver 313.96, enabling Lightboost has been a fairly painless experience (although as some others have found out there is a bug in which under certain circumstances your computer will start pausing and behaving extremely sluggishly when adjusting 3D settings). Interestingly enough, the monitor seems to like to stay "stuck" in LB mode, even after adjusting settings in the control panel. This is actually a boon for those of us that bought this monitor for 24/7 LB mode like myself.

So you can see, the VG248QE (and its competitive 1ms sister, BENQ XL2411T), are the numero uno monitors for CRT-quality "zero motion blur" -- perfectly clear motion in video gaming. If you always hated LCD motion blur, these monitors are your solution.
Vega and I have done tests, and we're comparing an actual measured 1.4 millisecond MPRT (Motion Picture Response Time), compared to the typical >8ms for regular 120Hz TN (even 2ms panels) because of the sample-and-hold effect. People are witnessing more than 75% less motion blur during fast-action video gaming, if you are sensitive to motion blur.Edited by mdrejhon - 2/4/13 at 1:31pm
