Well, just put some pillows and blankets down to be sure.

up until now never notice 120hz, light boost then i watched the hobbit 48fps.

If i get a monitor 120hz/light boost or g-sync monitor will i have the same experience watching video just like the hobbit 48fps?
Also how is the color production of the current 120mh/ lightboost/ g-sync monitor compare to say IPS panel monitor like dell u2711 (as i am using one)?

Cant say about lightboost and all that but the colour reproduction on TN panels compared to IPS is crap, my Asus in between my 2 Dells looks out of place and more so with lightboost. I use my IPS monitors for everything and leave my Asus 144Hz just for games.

Just my 2cents.gif

Hobbit 48fps is interpolated, shows the frames twice.
Unless you somehow managed to get Peter Jackson to give you a TRUE 48fps copy on Bluray.

Well, I don't totally get your post, so I'll just braindump instead biggrin.gif .

The u2711 will have better colors than any 120Hz+ monitor (Idk about the korean monitors).

Just changing out your monitor won't magically grant smoother video playback, like Hobbit@48fps. It won't somehow upscale the framerate. It'll still be limited by whatever the source framerate is (24fps, 29.97fps, etc.).

A 120Hz monitor, however, will make everything from games (if you can keep the frames up) to desktop browsing smoother than a 60Hz monitor.

A 120Hz monitor may feel more responsive and less laggy than 60Hz. I know when I was using my Planar PX2710MW side by side my BenQ XL2720T, the BenQ made the Planar feel like it was laggy, which could either be because of a noticeable input lag difference, or the difference between 60Hz and 120Hz.

If you want to watch movies and stuff at 60fps/120fps/144fps, then check out SVP. It interpolates extra frames in the video to increase the framerate to your refresh rate. So, for instance, if you have a 24fps (or 29.97, 30fps, etc.) movie, it'll interpolate extra frames to make it 60fps for a 60Hz monitor or 120fps for a 120Hz monitor, which makes playback MUCH smoother. So yeah, 120Hz+ monitors aren't only useful for gaming. Maybe some of you guys can give it a try.

The Asus 144hz has horrible colors. The BenQ XL2420TE is MUCH better. I have it between 2 Dell S-IPS and though they are different, it doesn't bother me one bit.

Also, the jump from 144hz to 120hz Lightboost is just as significant as from 60hz to 144hz, possibly more so.

The only problem of Asus is the missing gamma setting.

The ASUS VG248QE? I bought one recently to replace my old 22" 75Hz e-IPS (Dell 2209WA) - the ASUS looks very washed out in comparison, I just put it down to being a TN panel...

Is BenQ all that much better? Are there any 24" BenQs that, when using LightBoost2D@120Hz, are far better with colours than the ASUS?

I'd like something with the motion clarity of LightBoost2D@120Hz, same response & input lag as the ASUS VG248QE, but decent colours.

Maybe EIZO FG2421 "240Hz" is the way to go? Is there anything wrong with it for gaming that I'd notice, coming from the ASUS? Edit: Did some quick reading on the EIZO, seems it's hard to get a good one, and even then has some niggles.

I'd also be considering the BenQ XL2720Z, but I think 24" is as big as I want to go for 1080p - maybe they'll release a 24" version? And now that I've got LightBoost, even 1440p@~120Hz on a PLS is a no-go.

Thx

I had the vg248qe and bought an Eizo fg2421, I got a good one with zero problems and I'm very happy with it; great colors, contrast ratio, and great motion clarity. I suggest ordering from a place with good return policy in case you get a bad one.
