You'll get the LightBoost 3D official benefits.

LightBoost is a monitor feature.
It is a strobe backlight; see high speed video.

Perfect. Thank-you so much! Im guessing I wont have to do much to enable lightboost perminantly on my monitor now then thumb.gif

Small sampling. Obviously, not everyone likes LightBoost, but there appears to be thousands of testimonials Internet-wide in hundreds of forums in many countries (found in places like Russia, Portugal, USA, Canada, etc). I see the logfiles of Blur Busters Blog, and I'm amazed by the users of hundreds of forums that spontaneously link to my blog everytime somebody mentions 120Hz...

Originally I made tons of forum noise at the beginning of the LightBoost 2D discovery, but I don't have to anymore.... the LightBoost users are sustaining the momentum now.

Up front "expectations tempering" below:
...LightBoost is not really worth it if you can't average triple-digit framerates
...LightBoost monitors quality do have a lot of variances between them.
...IPS may be a better choice, but there are obviously users who prefer LightBoost.
Some general recommendations:
-- You want cheapest LightBoost? ASUS VG248QE or BENQ XL2411T
-- You want clearest LightBoost? ASUS VG248QE or BENQ XL2411T
-- You want most colorful LightBoost? ASUS VG278H (not HE or QE) or BENQ XL2720T.
(Note: My VG278H LightBoost color looks better than my XL2411T non-LightBoost color)
I as talking more about quantitative data. The way that a CRT draws the image is quite different than the way that an LCD draws the image with light boost.

If you're not using 3D, then try disabling the "3D Stereoscopic" checkboxes in your Control Panel.

There is a way to eliminate the framerate hit, because you're only using it for 2D. If you're having difficulties keeping the monitor in 3D mode, while keeping Windows in 2D mode (that's the configuraiton you need), post back and we'll have to figure out a way.

There's now currently zero framerate hit with LightBoost using the ToastyX method; so the same should be possible with the Samsung Zero Motion Blur HOWTO -- I should soon update it with instructions to prevent the framerate hit, but I need to verify with Samsung users what they did to prevent the framerate loss.

I didn't see this response till now, sorry. I will go home today and attempt the config you mentioned to prevent frame loss!

Just got the asus VG248QE, but I have a 7870 hawk. I plan on replacing them with 760 sli. Can't wait to try this hack.

I'd love to know.

Can anyone report that this new Beta nVidia driver changes LightBoost colors?

They look the same as the previous drivers to me (Asus vg248qe) frown.gif

Just released.... ToastyX StrobeLight, the world’s easiest method to turn on/off LightBoost. Even for 3-monitor surround setups! No 3D Vision setup required anymore!

Easy to add common refresh rates.

Ctrl-Alt-Plus = Turn on LightBoost
Ctrl-Alt-Minus = Turn on LightBoost
Ctrl-Alt-# = Adjust LightBoost % setting

Any tips on recalibrating color for lightboost? The top of my monitor turns pink and the bottom turns yellow - already tried playing with contrast and LB brightness...

You forgot to say which monitor...

LightBoost monitor quality varies quite widely -- it's more consistently good on VG278H's and XL2720T, but a lot more variable on VG248QE's. VG248QE's are excellent for their cheap price and the lack of LightBoost overdrive artifacts, but we've gotten comments of discoloration more frequently with VG248QE's. It is possible you may have a defect if the discoloration is a massive difference between the top and bottom.

XL2720T / XL2420T / VG278HE / VG248QE -- Easy LightBoost ON / OFF via hotkey (beta)

We need more beta testers of this free easy LightBoost monitor utility:

ToastyX is the maker of the popular Custom Resolution Utility (CRU). He has created a new LightBoost utility, called Strobelight, which I helped beta test on VG278H and XL2411T. We need owners of other 120Hz LightBoost monitors to try it out.
ToastyX StrobeLight Beta
(The world’s easiest method to turn on/off LightBoost, even for 3-monitor surround setups, no 3D Vision setup required anymore)

Ctrl-Alt-Plus = Turn on LightBoost
Ctrl-Alt-Minus = Turn on LightBoost
Ctrl-Alt-# = Adjust LightBoost % setting

Successfully Tested (so far):
- ASUS VG248QE
- BENQ XL2411T
- ASUS VG278H

Need Testing:
- Surround Setups
- BENQ XL2420T
- BENQ XL2420TX
- BENQ XL2720T
- ASUS VG278HE
- ASUS VG278HR

Please let everyone know if your monitor or surround setup works, and how long it took to initialize.
