LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 152

post #1511 of 2929
I´m thinking of maybe getting one of these 144Hz to run lightboost on. Only play CS:GO and a little bit LoL. Can you use lightboost and play with 1024x768 etc.? I don´t know if I want the 24 or the 27. If i go with the 27 I just put it further back on the table. I´m on a 22 now and I have it almost as close as I can, just so when playing I can rest my wrist on the edge of the table and the monitor just behind the keyboard. About the colors, right now I´m on a Syncmaster 2233rz. I´ve just set brightness on the screen to 100 and digital vibrance to max (100?) in Nvidia control panel. I prefer the black parts of the map to be more gray but otherwise colorful, easier to spot enemies. Which monitor would suit me best? ASUS 24" VG248QE or ASUS 27" VG278HE? BenQ 24'' XL2411T are also available but it´s so god damn ugly compared to ASUS imo. If it´s equal i prefer ASUS, but performance is more important so if it´s better i buy that.

Get a 24" because larger screens are not as good for gaming in general (you want the smaller view size so you can focus on more of the scene at any time, and you want what you are used to - moving a big monitor back is nowhere near the same experience as having a smaller monitor closer to you if you are a gamer)

Secondly the performance of the XL2411T and the VG248QE are exactly the same, apart from a few features that probably won't matter to you: Asus has it's little crosshair thing, BenQ has some light enhancement thing (which does what you say, it makes black areas appear grey and easy to spot enemies, but to be honest you won't need it and you can't activate it during lightboost anyway).

Lightboost works fine on any resolution.

Don't worry about colours, there's no point the differences can't be felt when competitive gaming.

I'd get the cheaper out of XL2411T or VG248QE, but if you want to get the one that looks nicer to you then go for that. Think of them as the same monitor.

What is the "crosshair thing"? It´s about 76 $ difference. Benq cheaper but out of stock on all stores here.

Push a button to place a crosshair in the center of the screen.

Also, if you want PWM-free and stay 24", one can also additionally consider the BENQ XL2420TE. Costs more, but provides you with PWM-free operation, if eyestrain is an issue.

Also, if you do lots of other things other than games, then keep in mind that the LightBoost image quality on the 27" models is better than the 24".
But it would not matter when playing competitively and not caring about colors; the VG248QE is the budget priced 120Hz monitor.

LightBoost works fine at any resolution via GPU scaling.

I don´t know what PWM is hehe. Is it faster with PWM-free? Could only find XL2411T and XL2420T here. Not the XL2420TE.

PWM is how most displays control brightness - but adjusting the frequency the LED backlit is on, higher frequency = brighter picture. On low brightness the frequency is so low that it can irritate some users (while most cant really tell). Most of the time setting brightness via OSD to 100% keeps backlit to always on, or no pulsing.

TE does not use PWM, which is good - but it only works outside of lightboosted mode

Don´t need to worry about PWM then, was planning to use lightboost.

Do I have to add a non lightboost resolution? I don´t see when I would use that since lightboost works fine in windows to?

I would have a non-lightboosted version just so the strobing effect isnt so harsh, when in 2D. Its not like 120/144hz 2ms is unusable.
