in BF3 when I died I'd have a brief black screen (<1s)
When I change my bindings in BF3, the app would always turn on and off, asking if I wanted to save the display settings.

Recently, sometimes if I'm typing on a browser and I hit 5 or 6, the brightness of the screen would increase or decrease and the 5 and 6 wouldn't display on the browser. Id have to disable the strobe light application to get the keyboard to work properly.

Other than that it's been good. ~90% of the time.

I just installed it and its been pretty good in BF4 beta, need brightness maxed tho to be able to see tongue.gif. I only use this monitor for gaming tho so Im just turning it off when I dont need it

Does anyone have any tech info on these two monitors:

1) ACER GD235

does it have PWM? Reports at tom's hardware a couple of years ago panned it for having lag. Is there a simple way to measure that?

2) 27QW IPS LED 27" LG AH-IPS
in this monitor:
http://redirect.anandtech.com/r?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FCROSSOVER-27QW-IPS-LED-2560x1440%2Fdp%2FB00EZM7GCY&user=u00000687

is it the same panel listed in page 1 of this thread here:
QNIX QX2710 Evolution 2


I was told
Crossover have lg ips panels
Qnix have samsung pls panels

but then items like this:
http://www.amazon.com/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2560x1440/dp/B00CI3EQA2/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1381518128&sr=1-3&keywords=QNIX+QX2710+Evolution+2

make the distinction blurry as it is listed as
as 27 inch 2560x1440 Samsung PLS (LG IPS)

I want to try lightboost and am wondering if i should buy the older one which i can get a deal on. I've seen the acer and the viewing angles and colors are not all the bad.

I have a quick two question's..

My specs are:

CPU: i5-3570K
GPU: GTX 660 TOP 2GB
MONITOR: BENQ XL2411T

So the question's are:
1) should i stick to my GTX 660, or should i put in the RADEON 7950 3GB card ?

Basically im not sure, with which one the lightboost will work better..

2) why does it feel stuttery when i play Quake Live with LightBoost ON ??

First i thought it's my internet or smth.. but i guess its LB frown.gif(

It shouldn't be flaky at all. Most of the issues people have reported are not problems with the program itself.

That's a BF3 issue, not a problem with the program. Several people replied to your earlier post with the solution. You have to go into the game's video options and select the monitor and the fullscreen resolution, then press the "apply fullscreen resolution" button. You might have to apply a different resolution first and change it back for it to apply properly.

The program would not turn itself on or off, nor would it ask to save anything. Something else is doing that. The only time the program does anything is if you press a hotkey or use the tray icon menu.

That could be a bug, but I need a way to reproduce it. Nobody else has reported that happening. The only reason that would happen is if the program thinks the Ctrl+Alt keys are still pressed for some reason, but I don't see how that could happen unless something was messing with raw input somehow. I might be able to add something to work around that, but I'd like to know how that's happening in the first place.

hey guys just wondering if anyone has good color settings for AMD/ATI cards? As i have a new card coming today

I was using these setting from mark at blurbusters

For better LightBoost colors, adjust your nVidia Control Panel:
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Brightness = 52%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Contrast = 45%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Gamma = 0.70

The above setting looked great with light boost enabled

So just wondering is there any good setting for ATI/AMD R9 280X is on its way to me
