Should work.

With ToastyX Strobelight, and for 2D use, it doesn't matter what kind of LightBoost monitors. You can mix-match, if you're not using 3D glasses. The problem is image differences. The quality can vary between LightBoost monitors. The VG278H and VG278HE has extremely minor image quality differences that MIGHT stand out (e.g. differences in ghosting during the TestUFO Eiffel Tower Test -- www.testufo.com/#test=photo&photo=photo-eiffel.jpg ...)

I just can't help but notice it.
I assume you mean the VG248QE?
It's a panel lottery problem on that monitor model, it seems a lot of the panels have this problem. Exchange it until the artifact disappears (but half have done so unsuccessfully; getting another panel) My BENQ XL2411T (same panel as VG248QE) has the same scanlines issue at the upper-right corner.

If you want a panel that is guaranteed not to have this artifact, you will want to switch to the older 24" panels (e.g. XL2420T) which I do not recommend, or any of the 27" models (e.g. VG278H) which has better LightBoost color. The VG278H has the best LightBoost color of all the LightBoost monitors, for example. But not everyone likes 27".

If you want cheapest LightBoost, VG248QE is it.
It actually does a good job of the CRT clarity, especially when you view www.testufo.com/#test=photo and even the very tough TestUFO Eiffel Tower test with darn near zero ghosting, and the fast moving tower looks exactly as sharp as stationary (zero motion blur) especially at lower LightBoost % settings.

Popular LightBoost gamma fix settings are:
- nVidia Control Panel Desktop Brightness 52%
- nVidia Control Panel Desktop Contrast 45%
- nVidia Control Panel Desktop Gamma 0.70
- Leave Digital Vibrance at factory default
But it won't fix 100% of color problems, and the VG248QE isn't the best when it comes to color quality.

If you want the most colorful LightBoost, then you have to pony up extra money for an ASUS VG278H, and then reconfigure the VG278H to monitor OSD contrast of about 90, while also doing the above color fixes. VG278H has slightly more ghosting in the TestUFO Eiffel Tower test (www.testufo.com/#test=photo&photo=photo-eiffel.jpg) but you get far better LightBoost colors.

Thanks heaps for you answer mate. I really appreciate it. . The fact that you can mix and match any light-boosted monitor is a good thing for the community to know. Cheers..
The image quality difference is another issue.. With the ghosting issue and the fact that the two HE's would be in peripheral vision (I have nearly 190 degrees peripheral) but for anyone including myself usable and well focused peripheral is another story. The difference in the ghosting wouldn't be that much of a concern when used in a triple monitor setup then would you think? In saying that.. Which monitor do you think has the best image quality out of the two? Sounds like the difference is so small that it really comes down to what monitor you want as the primary center monitor for your primary focus.

If you think it would be much better to stick with 3 of the HE's I will seeing as I have one already. Ditch the idea of having 3d "goggles". I've tried it and it is pretty cool every once in a while, but I'm not wiling to sacrifice my 2D Light-boost perfect triple setup on having some "goggles" in the draw for an every so often play time.

Mdrejhon,

If I have a colorimeter that I can use to calibrate my displays, which 24" screen would be best for me (in terms of less artifacts and better colors)?

And can I run LightBoost on 3 monitors?

Is there a list of newest lightboost monitors (27") ... ?

post #1386 of 2929
So if i have a VG278H and 2 VG278HE in portrait mode (with the VG278H in the middle), the colour differences would be minimal? in surround 2D is it ok but does it work in 3D? probably had to override the EDID in the VG278HE to match the VG278H right?
or should i get 3 VG248QE? i already have a VG278H...

Thanks in advance

I just got the VG278HE and the colors look considerably better than the VG248QE. One thing I noticed though is that Lightboost is not as bright as on the VG248QE can some one confirm this? Also there is a bit more ghosting but the color improvement is definitely worth it, also enemies look bigger in FPS games tongue.gif

Why don't you recommend the old BenQ XL2420T?

In the UK the Xl2411T is over £40 cheaper than the VG248QE.

If I decide to replace my XL2420TX with another 24" 3D panel, which would be the best choice?
