Guru3D has this to say about it, much the same though really:-

Here's where I spotted the original press release:-

You should see a difference in desktop colors, some games use their own gamma adjustment and colors so you probably won't see a difference there.

It may not work in all games, since they use picture settings separately from the Desktop.
You can view the Lagom patterns, both at the original settings and at the adjusted settings -- viewing pictures at Windows desktop should look more colorful during LightBoost with the recommended LightBoost gamma fix settings.

For fixing game color, adjust the game's own brightness/gamma setting, and often you will want to adjust this downwards a bit, unless you're trying to make enemies in dark places more visible (at the cost of washing out colors). Some people have also resorted to using utilities such as cpkeeper to try to force the desktop colors into the game, and I've heard of some use SweetFX, but that's overkill (and anticheat will likely prevent SweetFX).

Soooo, if I had to get a monitor for Lightboost right now from BenQ (I haven't really had a good track record with ASUS personally), it would be the XL2720T?

Is there any 1440p monitors that use light boost? I know some of the korean monitors are 1440p 120hz but I don't think they use lightboost do they?

CallSignVega certainly says that's the one to get, he's tried: XL2411T, VG248QE, VG278HE, XL2720T. The LightBoost colors on the 27" models are better (after calibration)

There are no 1440p LightBoost monitors. All of them are currently 1080p.

I've recently moved into Win8 and applied the 2d lightboost hack. Unfortunately it doesn't stick. I leave my PC on overnight and discover it not using 2d lightboost in the morning frown.gif There are some instances when I leave my pc on idle for 10-15 min then my screen would black out for a few seconds then turn back on kicked out of 2d lightboost. Any ideas whats causing this? I had win7 64bit and it worked flawlessly.
