On *certain* monitors, the LightBoost double image effect shows up easily with 120fps@120Hz VSYNC ON animations; during high-contrast situations, such as PixPerAn (downloadable), or Blur Busters Motion Tests (coming soon). Some people are very sensitive to this, while others are not.

Pre-requisites to see the double-ghost:
(1) Perfect animations (120fps@120Hz VSYNC)
(2) High contrast edge (bright/dark)
(3) High speed movement

Basically, it's roughly the same intensity as 3D crosstalk.
Fainter 3D crosstalk = Fainter 2D doubleghost in LightBoost.

That said, other image quality aspects (e.g. color) of the XL2720T may be better, but the LightBoost faint-sharp-trailing-ghost effect is nearly nonexistent on XL2411T's and VG248QE's, while worse on XL2420T's and VG278HE's. The VG278H (non 'E') is roughly somewhere in between a VG248QE and the VG278HE.

It depends on what attributes you are most sensitive to. Both of you may be right for different reasons.

I will be taking pursuit camera photographs of the LightBoost double-ghost effect, which amplifies itself if I raise my contrast to 90 on my VG278H, instead of 65-75 that I typically run it at, to eliminate it.

A bit offtopic.gif but - Mark, did you get the email I sent a few days ago regarding MERs and overdrive?

My apologies; I had been away part of the weekend. I'll address your email.

Just got that monitor yesterday.
No backlight bleeding or dead pixels. About size and 1080p, it's good for gaming but I dont like it much for internet browsing, but I got that screen mainly for gaming so it's not such a big issue. And now colors. Before I got this one I have tried Dell U2413 and Metro LL looked so good on it, but it had backlight bleeding, I didn't like much IPS glow and I noticed screen tearing where on this benq I don't see it at all even on 27". Anyway colors on benq are not that good. I have tried to set up the colors I like for FPS1 profile but I couldn't. So I went with standard profile which I liked most.

Could somebody post their color setting? I like warmer colors but I can't set it up correctly.

Thank you.

LightBoost or non-LightBoost color settings?

(You are aware of LightBoost can reduce motion blur even further? See 60Hz vs 120Hz vs LightBoost)

LightBoost is fine and all, but the colors are a real problem with NVIDIA drivers because of the colors.

I made a custom color profile that is applied in Windows.
And also trying out the NVIDIA control panel with it's color management options is no real help either.

The problem: some fullscreen programs (mostly games) when quitted mess up the colors again.
For one thing they don't even use the set settings. And the other thing is, the desktop looks plain fugly again after quitting the game.
CS:GO is one example.
I tried many many tools and tricks, nothing really works. It's so damn annoying.

The new 320.18 drivers massively improved the colors of LightBoost on the XL2720T.

Unfortunately, it worsened the LightBoost colors on the VG248QE, and there are other 320.18 bugs (e.g. textures in BF3).
I'd wait on these drivers...

That said, this is promising for XL2720T users. With the new drivers, CallSignVega now even says his XL2720T looks better than his VG248QE's!

I do not have lightboost on, because what i read you need for that to work 100 > fps, which I dont get. I rather have all maxed out with 70 - 80 fps than 100 with lightboost on. But I might try that out.

I'm going to try these new drivers 320.18 and see. Thanks.

Be warned 320.18 has texture problems in BF3, and a few other bugs.

As for colors, my favourite calibration patterns (without a colorimeter) is the Lagom LCD patterns. They are quite helpful in adjusting your monitor.

Also if you do enable LightBoost, keep in mind LightBoost also functions at 100Hz too -- so that pushes framerate requirements down a bit (e.g. 80fps@100Hz still benefits from LightBoost). That said, you may play other games such as older games, that can cap out at a full framerate.
