Your eyes/brain get used to things when you have no reference or comparison. Sure it may "feel" pretty damn smooth, but if say you put your monitor next to a FW900 CRT, you would understand. Your brain has to be re-caged to a reference point or baseline. I know when I first got my FW900 and pitted it against some LCD's, I had to do a double take as it really shows you how lackluster motion is on an LCD in comparison. Hopefully these Lightboost LCD's can produce similar result in 2D mode.
I'd eventually like to take my 132 Hz 1440P IPS catleap and put on a custom back light to strobe as that would be near a perfect display, but these off-the shelf models are a good start.
That's not what I'm on about. I'm not disputing the fact my brain has no immediate point of reference, I'm just saying my system feels pretty smooth, I know it isn't; compared to a fast CRT. I've had ultra fast CRT's in the past, I've had all kinds of monitors etc... and thus far, I agree, CRT's are night and day in terms of motion blur compared to my monitor. But that doesn't deter from the fact my system feels pretty damn smooth. I've not spent thousands and thousands in my lifetime on components/peripherals to go backwards. And if I have, then I may as well take a long walk of a short pier. However, there is the other way to look at it, to go forwards, you have to look backwards. We all knew LCD technology would take over, it's more practical, cheaper to manufacture etc... Maybe I've just been anally displeased by consumerism. If that's the case, does anyone want to buy my PC? XD
Also, to show you I understand, I'll explain what I always explain when this misunderstanding occurs
. We're all subjects of our own culture and background, if you were brought up in a barren wasteland, no tree's, no grass, no nothing, just a hole in the ground. And someone random came out of the blue and told you to draw a tree, or some grass... how could you? You've never seen it.
