LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 286

post #2851 of 2929
How much were the DIY kits anyway? When I googled for how much it'd cost to upgrade if I got a VG248QE now, it said they were $200!! at release (which was more than the price of the whole damn monitor at one point!) so I'm hoping that was incorrect.

I almost bought the Eizo FG2421 a few times, being a huge fan of non-TN panels, but I just pre-ordered the new Oculus Rift Dev Kit (putting my old one up on eBay for a few bucks). I think one point people forget is that there are multiple attributes to a monitor, and as I grow older, I find myself getting concerned more and more by blur and other problems with persistence; however, not to the point where it's more important than other aspects, such as colour reproduction. The FG2421 seems like the best all-around monitor except for that huge price (and some QA problems, which you just need to keep in mind and make sure you buy it from a place with good return policies), but now that there's G-Sync in the game too, I'm thinking maybe I should just wait some more and keep with my old HP2465 (dual-DVI 24" with a decent VA panel, but bad display time and controller) until something better / more affordable comes along. But if it's true that ASUS has an exclusive license on G-Sync until Q3 2014, that sucks.

They were a silly price, if i could get one in the UK it would have translated to like 600usd for the monitor and kit

I would for a perfect solution - but come on, it's a single 1080p monitor. If G-sync/ULMB 1080p's come in costing four times as much as ok entry-level 1080p monitors, they will flop for the most part.

It's just a rumor: http://wccftech.com/nvidia-g-sync-asus-monitors-brands-q3-2014/ , however it is a little upsetting that there isn't more information out there already about upcoming competing monitors with the G-Sync technology. What the rumor could refer to is that G-Sync itself isn't ready to be easily rolled out, and right now ASUS is the only one that will have ready products until around Q3. Other manufacturers could even be delaying for reasons such as proliferation of the GPUs required for G-Sync, as well as further development on accompanying software.

Either way, just a rumor...personally, I hope someone like Eizo makes a FG2422 that has non-G-Sync variable refresh rate, which I would probably pay an extra $100 for at least...though most of my wish with G-Sync is to see it on resolutions above 1080p to also help with when you can't get a solid 120Hz.

If you're still in 2D mode and it says 3D is on, you're fine. The 3D light on my BenQ is always on.
