In Chrome (with smooth scroll plug in thing) Just scrolling down cases like 2cm of ghosting on the lines separating forum posts!
The ghosting on my vg278h is only 1-2 millimeters (not cm) that is a huge tail. Any its only noticeable at very fast motions in desktop (none in-game) and because i know what im looking for. I still think there is something wrong with your monitor.

And when you jump in a helicopter or jet it looks terrible. Its not for me.
Sorry to hear that. I did hear about some bad colors with the BenQ monitors. On my vg278h all i had to do is increase the contrast when in 2d Lighboost mode and colors are similar to reg 2d mode, just a little dimmer, but i like the look, and the smoothness outweighs everything else. Especially in BF3, its a big advantage, but i do play alot of AM close quarter style gameplay.
The frames turn down because 3d mode is enabled even though its on the lightboost only
If done correctly the framerate should be about the same in reg 2d vs 2d Lightboost. (as shown in my benchmark in the previous page)
