There's a lightboost compatible ips monitor by Asus, 120hz too I think. Think it was 23" and 1080p, am I right?
The only 23/24 inch sized ASUS branded LightBoost compatible monitor is the Asus VG248QE.

Ah, too bad then...that's not the ips model. frown.gif

I have yet to try the lightboost tweak on my 120hz monitor. Anyone know if the Samsung SA950D models are capable?

I like 1440p but the blurring when panning is not enjoyable. I like to be able to move my viewpoint around without it becoming a massive blur. Being IPS in the first place makes the effect even worse then most TNs. Even the 1440p 120hz monitors arnt the greatest in that regards ether. I just like having the clearest picture when moving, not standing still. Kind why with the 1440ps as they are in the current form I would use one as a secondary screen but not as my main screen. But everyone has their own opinions, My buddy uses a 1440p and games like dota 2 look great on it.

I actually agree.

 

Some people like yourself will always prefer the fest response time of the TN panels in games such as BF3 or extra. No matter how great the game looks on a 1440p panel.

 

But games that do not require fast pace such as Dota 2 or some RPGs, the 1440p panels really shine.

 

For me though playing BF3 with a 1440p monitor was still a great experience.

Yes, third-person viewpoints are one of the areas that hugely benefits from LightBoost TN's -- it has been measured to have 85% to 92% less motion blur. (This is *even* better than regular 120 Hz TN LCD which only has 50% less motion blur than 60 Hz TN or IPS).

For programming and graphics, I prefer IPS 1440p. But for games, many of us are sensitive motion blur...
Someday we won't have to pick our poison, but alas: Choose motion-blurry IPS or poorer-color LightBoost.

I must give my opinion on that one because I recently bought an ASUS VG278HE 144hz monitor. (I'm french so sorry about my grammar mistakes)

I previously owned an ASUS VW266h which was 1920 x 1200 , 60hz....tn panel
and I bought a DELL U2411 (1920 x1200 IPS 60hz) 3 months ago.

Heres the game I play. (BF3 - Skyrim - WoW - Tomb Raider 2013 )


Here my tough and experience.

I bought the U2411 because I read this was a killer monitor so I decided to give it a try.
4 days later,, I put it on the side of my desk and never used it again till I sold it back to a photographer. I went back to my VW266H.

2 main reasons.
-1st, the "ghosting" was too much and give me headache VS my old tn panel.
-2nd I didn't see a huge difference in the color accuracy.

For any casual gamer not playing to a fast paced game, my 1st point may not apply to you. But for any fps players or any casual player playing a fast paced game, you would see the difference. For me it was a pain.
Regarding the 2nd reason, IMO blue is blue, red is red and as long my game aren't in black and white, the color accuracy of the U2411 wasn't noticible


So last week I bought a ASUS VG278HE

Pros
-Incredible refresh rate and everything looks more fluid. ( yes I can see the difference easily)
-All my fps generated by my GPU are finally shown.
-Fast response time ( no "ghosting" at all ) = no headache after 5 hours gaming session
-3d gaming ( even if i'm not plannning to use it)

Cons
-27inch for a 1080P resolution = less sharper text - more pixelisation ( don't forget I came from a 1200p resolution so I can easily see the difference) but it doesn't really affect me in any game with AA enabled ( exept WoW where my UI is less sharper ).
-Less working area. I mean, your desktop is a bit smaller. It doesn't bother me since I only play game and watch movie with my PC. I saw a small difference in WoW since my UI was shrinked. But I ajusted my UI.
-This monitor emit a small buzzing noise when the brightness is not at 100. It is really annoying if you work on your PC but if you are gaming or watching a movie with an headset, it's not a "no go". However, it is annoying. With the brightness at 100 the noise is gone, but let me tell you, a 27 inch monitor at 100 brightness = crazy white screen when I use google for example. I couldn't find a way to bypass this and will contact ASUS soon. There might be a way to bypass this noise but I didn' find any forum talking about this.


Overall I'm happy with this monitor and I don't plan to change it soon.
However, I was interested in a ASUS PB278H (2560 x 1440, 60hz...) but never had the chance to try it. But i'm sure i would notice some "ghosting" so that's why i didn't buy it.

Thanks, you're using two 580s, right?
post #30 of 50
Exact. 2x GTX 580 Classified Ultra.

BF3 at high = avg 115 fps.
ultra 95-100.


WoW ultra 8X AA = 100 avg. 60 in high pop area.

Tomb Raider 2013 - The setting just before Ultimate(i don't remember if it's high or extreme) avg 100 fps.

Skyrim Ultra 110-120 fps all the time.


This can give you an idea.

P.S. I'm stuggling right now to go and buy a PB278Q just to see the difference and if the "ghosting" is really big on the new panel. I could eaily return it if i'm not satisfied ( ths to futureshop customer satisfaction garantee) rolleyes.gif
