The VG248QE, while has less LightBoost motion trailing artifacts, only has half the contrast ratio during LightBoost mode -- only ~500:1 or so, according to NCX' tests.
Tough choices. 24 vs 27 inches. And whether color quality is important, etc. And the very buggy 320.18 drivers, which need an upgrade. Unofficially, forum reports I monitor on about 10 to 20 discussion forums, show that:
Winners for LightBoost low crosstalk/minimum ghost (during LightBoost enabled mode):
Winners for LightBoost color quality:
XL2720T (320.18 drivers), with the VG278H a runner up (not HE).
(Note: I own both the XL2411T and the VG278H.)
One of the sites needs to do a LightBoost Comparision Test between 4 or 5 different monitors eventually.
All though I'm not sure how serious I should take this review but, it bashes xl2720t : http://youtu.be/VKnhLdhhftw
I was about to order the asus vg278hr but I honestly get so confounded and confused by all the different variations of what seems like it's basically the same monitors. Currently I'm using a 22" 2209wa, and I want/need 120hz, and proper blacks, and hopefully added to that the best colors possible as well, all wrapped in a nice size like 27", with built in 3d emitter preferred.
I was actually gonna ask you if the good color quality of xl2720t also applies to xl2420t, but then I changed my mind and want a 27" now instead. I don't rly know what too do anymore than to just throw out the question, what should I get ? is the xl2720t quality better than the vg278hr you think ?...except it sadly don't have the 3d emitter. (which offer some kind of advantage if going for some 3d gaming I suppose)
From reading this thread I got the impression that asus in general have poorer color quality, am I correct in that assumption ?
I am wondering if the xl2720t might be perfect (as in best choice) with the new drivers you mentioned, if only it had a 3d emitter as well...sigh.
P.s. after reading some more stuff over and over agian, it seems that vg278h is somewhat better even though it's apparently getting phased out by the newer HR...Am I on to something now maybe.Edited by Cybercore - 8/8/13 at 6:06am
