That may very well be true.

To those thinking of purchasing this monitor, please understand - you are buying a display that is designed for competitive gaming. If that's not what you're shopping for, I almost guarantee there is a more suitable display for you.

For what it's worth, even if I played slower games competitively I wouldn't buy this. It's unnecessary and I'd rather have a Catleap or other low input-lag IPS (@75hz would be acceptable)... but I play Unreal Tournament and (almost literally) need this refresh rate.

So far I'm really pleased with the 144hz on this monitor. I don't know if anyone else has this or not but there's a yellowish tint on the top left of my monitor. The rest is fine though. Also, I was curious about the lightboost thing yesterday so I tried it (installed the .inf , restarted, installed the registry file, restarted and turned 3D on) but had poor results. There was no immediate change when I enabled the settings but when I launched TF2, it enabled itself. The only problem was that the game was stuttering like crazy. I couldn't even click anything on the main menu due to the lag so I spammed ctrl+t until it registered and it stopped lagging. I hopped in game to try the difference but I saw none other than huge input lag from my mouse. Did I do something wrong?

@cardan From what I've read other people talking about the effect falls over if your card can't keep you above 120fps. Do you know what your framrate is like? What card do you have?

I have the Samsung 2233rz, would you say it's worth the upgrade?

I have a gtx 460. The thing is I play competitively anyways so I use fps configs to get hundreds of fps. I average around 300fps in tf2. Everything is perfect without the lightboost hack. I'm thinking I did something wrong.

Just FYI, everything works perfectly for me with a 3D emitter. All I have to do is change one registry entry and press control+T. Also, 3D is AWESOME! And although they don't advertise this, the original 3D Vision 1 emitter and glasses work just as well as the 3D Vision 2 glasses and emitter - the only difference in that the lenses on the glasses in the 2 kit are 20% bigger (the lense size is not a problem on the 1 kit,) and the glasses fit a little better.

I got my monitor today, but one issue I'm having is when i play diablo 3 or POE the frames cap at 30-40 and sometimes fluctuate up and down. I have changed my screen refresh rate to 60 and still the same issue. Anyone have this issue? Other than that I played CS:GO and boy its a world difference from 60 to 120+

My OC PCB for my catleap will be here Saturday or Monday, don't think I've ever been more excited about an electronic device/component in my life biggrin.gif

I came from same monitor and have the VG278HE version which supports lightboost trick. It's much better than samsung with lightboost and has lower input lag. I can feel and see the difference. If you want clarity and smoothness while taking a hit to colors(which is not bad after calibration) I would say go for it. Really up to you...

I came from that monitor. Simply... Yes. Very much so.
