Running LCD's at 120Hz have better color than running at 144Hz (apples vs apples non-LightBoost)

I own both the ASUS VG278H and the BENQ XL2411T, and the VG278H has superior color, though XL2411T has cleaner motion. Right now, the VG278H is my primary monitor, and the BENQ sits nearby whenever I need to do Blur Busters tests.

With the newer (but buggy) drivers, the BENQ XL2720T is reported to have better color -- one of the best colors in a LightBoost monitor -- achieving 950:1 contrast ratio.

Several forum reports show that the XL2420T has better color than the XL2411T, but has worse trailing artifacts (in LightBoost).

Added, thanks.
"Q: Does LightBoost shorten the life of the monitor's backlight?"
(no, it does not. It's an intentional feature of a monitor as part of 3D Vision, that just happens to be good for 2D)

Also added:
"Q: LightBoost doesn’t eliminate motion blur for me. Why?"
(troubleshooting)

And
"Q: I can only do 80 fps! Will LightBoost still benefit me?"
(minor benefits begin at frame rate exceeding half refresh rate; big benefits maximize at fps=Hz)

I would love to get the 2411 but I can not find it for sale in the US. Not sure why BenQ did this. I had the 2420T already and sent it back a year ago after a week.

I ordered my XL2411T from overclockers.co.uk online store. I was able to get it on a sale for a big less than $300 USD shortly after Christmas, it just cost $50 shipping.

hey guys, I have an asus zenbook with a GTX 620M, but a 7950 in my desktop. Is there a way to enable lightboost with this? I cant see stereoscopic settings in the nvidia control panel

You need to install 3D Vision drivers on your laptop, to make an nVidia laptop drive an external 3D Vision monitor at 120Hz with LightBoost. This way, I've heard of people successfully use an nVidia laptop to enable LightBoost.

As for hotplugging nVidia to AMD, that is something nVidia isn't happy with -- but it works (provided you do the ToastyX lightboost.bin method on the AMD system too).

Mark is there any way to keep a custom resolution 24/7 with LB? When I'm adding a custom resolution via NVIDIA Control Panel, and then after a pc restart its like the driver refreshes and you have to add it again. Without LB its still working. When the screen syncs in LB mode its like the settings get refreshed but only resolutions, not colours or 3D application settings mad.gif

Sounds like there are driver bugs. Have you tried the ToastyX Custom Resolution Utility to do the resolutions instead?
post #1129 of 2929
Yeah, its not "official" like NVIDIA Control Panel :l

I mean with NVIDIA CP when you create a custom resolution it shows up in the game alrdy as an option to choose for example in CS GO, but with CRU it doesn't.

It has been like this with any driver, well I guess all those stuff will get fixed sooner or later when LB for 2D becomes an official thing for NVIDIA:o

I ended up going with the Asus HE 27". No stuck or dead pixels (which is good because I bought insurance against it).

I am tempted to sell my 780 and pick up a pair of 770's though. My frame rates are pretty high with a single card but my understanding is that I would need higher than 120 FPS consistently to benefit from Lightboost. I'll need two cards for that.
