If all you can manage is 16 your lightboost definitely is not working.

16 sounds like the maximum non-lightboost setting, are you sure PixPerAn is running at 120 frames per second?

I just went through and did 20 no problem. I got half way through 25 and timed out frown.gif I think this may have made the colors better on my monitor as well. Very pleased I did this.

edit**

I really cannot believe the difference this made in the colour quality on this monitor. Everything looks so much better and Crysis 3 looks like a totally new game now. Wow.

How the heck can you all read at anything above 16 ish ha. I'm pretty positive light boost is on because the monitor is in 3D mode once I go into the menu.

well now testing 144Hz non LB theres no way for me to read at speed 20, too blurry. also 16 is quite hard blurry so i find this hard to believe If all you can manage is 16 your lightboost definitely is not working.

Reading at 16 with lightboost should be easy, if it's blurry then lightboost is not working.

Not everyone can speed-read fast enough to read PixPerAn 30, but I can confirm that both Vega and I are able to read PixPerAn 30. (Windows XP or 7). Windows 8 doesn't work well with PixPerAn, though!
Still, even 21 is way beyond what non-LightBoost LCD can do.
It will become easier to read PixPerAn if you turn your head while reading the text; that's how I can read at speed 30.

I can't get all the way to speed 16 at any non-LighBoost refresh rate (60Hz, 120Hz, 144Hz).

Interesting. LightBoost usually degrades colors, but obviously, it improved the colors on your model -- perhaps it is using better color defaults on your model of monitor during LightBoost.

Are you playing Crysis 3 at a full 120fps@120Hz? (I imagine you need to adjust details levels down and use a high end SLI to pull that off!). As we already know, LigthBoost performs best for fps=Hz gaming though even playing at >60-80fps often still look more beneficial under LightBoost than non-LightBoost, though it depends on how juddery it looks. I'm interested to hear your comments. Have you also tried out other games, like a source engine game, for the complete full motion effect (fps=Hz or fps>Hz)?

Glad you like it; interesting comments!
