LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 11

post #101 of 2929
I got the Benq 2420T, that means i got no glasses and need the override files.
The files are downloaded from TuGuX, but when im trying to install the first inf file (http://www.file-upload.net/download-6944730/Asus-VG278H-3D-Monitor-EDID-override.inf.html) i tried to install it threw device manager with the "action" and "add lagacy hardware", but it dont work.

Is this the wrong method, or is this the 32bit version, and i got a 64bit windows7 OS.

I agree the LCD's usually don't have as good colors as CRT. But have you ever seen a LaCiE? Expensive $2000+ studio LCD computer monitors. Those looked better than most CRT computer monitor for static images! Bigger than 100% of NTSC colorspace, too. Technically, not exactly the same shade of colors as a CRT, and you get worse black levels. The worse black levels can be fixed by using local dimming.

Give it another 10 years, we might have the LaCiE color, combined with the zero motion blur effect, combined with high-resolution local dimming, in a 4K monitor. I wish it would be sooner than that, but with the way things are going... We might get ultra-short-strobe-length OLED instead.

Depends. Photo editing and color quality? Keep it. Mainly fast action FPS video games? Sell it. Have both side by side and make a decision.
You won't get nearly as good color quality with TN-based LightBoost. We're still waiting for IPS-based LightBoost. Technically, it's not impossible -- IPS-based 3D active HDTV's exist, they just need to be shrunk to computer monitor sizes.

You know, I was hesitant to rep you because it looks like you've spammed every tech forum there is with copy/paste, but you've stuck with this one for quite a while now -- and with useful information.

you're okay sir.

Not a bright person, but from what I make of it, it requires a 3D monitor and it should support nvidia lightboost2?

Damn. I was thinking "oh wow I discovered something epic for my monitor"

I cant see anything on that post.

I would like to see some instructions for use with the Benq 2420T before I mess mine up!

I have installed the reg hack, downloaded the asus inf file but it refuses to install because its not digitally signed
