Basically there was an explanation of what exactly the differences between LB and high refresh rates are - in addition to a healthy dose of reality concerning competitive gaming.


Edit: I do not claim to have posted any relevant information before - I was referring to others' posts. I am not knowledgeable in this area. (the area of refresh rate vs other factors)


*This post might not last long itself - due to the fact that the others were removed.

It's okay.

The difference between light boost and regular 120hz is very minimal. What it does is, between refreshes of the screen, flashes the screen black. Essentially washing it clean of the image it displayed before. This left over image from the previous frame that's close to or similar to the image being displayed in the new refresh is what can be conceived as or called motion blur/ghosting. So what light boost does is completely eliminate that.

Although the effect improvess the overall experience and is far more enjoyable to use because the image on screen will always be clearer than a traditional display, to say anyone not using it is at a disadvantage is going too far.

Well, I've owned 3 120 hz panels and the difference is AMAZING. By the time an enemy saw me in BF3, I'd already put half a clip into them. My kill count went way up and I had a LOT MORE FUN.

That's great you enjoy 120hz. Everybody does, however it does not increase your kill count, does not increase your reflexes and more importantly does not allow you to put half a clip into anyone before they see you. I don't think you quite understand the concept of how short milliseconds are. But whatever, you can claim whatever you want.

It depends on so many factors, for me 120hz did make me much better, more fluid character movement, more fluid crosshair movement equals better aiming, combine the two and it really is huge.
