LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 147

post #1461 of 2929
Colors looks so dull. I feel I miss people when I am spinning quickly or they are in the shadows. I certainly notice the difference with Lightboost enabled but is it required? This just makes the images appear sharper, right? It doesn’t make them appear faster, right? Example: When enemy comes around a corner does Lightboost allow me to see him any sooner over 120hz?

Technically, Yes. The lack of motion blur will allow your brain to see movement faster and in greater detail. I have no idea if anyone has done measurements on this tho.

To improve LightBoost colors, use:
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Brightness = 52%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Color = 45%
nVidia Control Panel Gamma = 0.70

That said, if you want better LightBoost contrast, and haven't purchased a monitor yet, get the VG278H instead of the VG248QE. The LightBoost colors are more colorful on the VG278H. If you prefer a ultrabright monitor, then maybe LightBoost is not for you. The trick is to minimize LightBoost drawbacks while maximizing LightBoost benefits, to make it as worthwhile is possible.

To set up LightBoost to 10 % on the XL2420T is lowering it to "OFF" and then adjusting one notch, right? thinking.gif

Sounds cool and hopefully LightBoost will provide an edge???

@mdrejhon -

I'm curious as to why the VG278H is recommended over the XL2720T? Is it purely for the picture quality it delivers whilst using LightBoost? As the VG278H only runs at 85Hz, as opposed to the 120Hz of the XL2720T. Or does Toasty's tool trick the PC into believing that the monitor is running at 120Hz?

Surely having the higher Hertz is preferential and would give the user the fastest refresh rate and less blur? Thus giving the player the edge with faster enemy spotting, greater detail and less motion blur???

Update: Question answered by noob model No# misquote!!! LOL wink.gif

VG278H is 120Hz. You must have been thinking of a different monitor.

LOL I was looking at the VE278H winksmiley02.gif

The VG278H is not available in the UK. We can only get the VG278HE and HR, which are both 144Hz. The Benq XL2411T, XL2420T/E and XL2720T are available and a better option as they have the ability to rotate from Landscape to Portrait, where the Asus VG278HE doesn't. Also I meant to quote the XL2720T and not the XL2420T. Either way the Benq's look a better bet and slightly cheaper too!!! smile.gif
