My 3D Vision Glasses seem to be broken, bad battery I assume after so many years. frown.gif
I will them charge for a day but I have little hope, they just don't turn on and if they turn it's only for 1 sec.
I get the double vision in the monitor when 3D is enabled and OSD shows 120Hz but no idea if it would display correctly with 3D glasses.

Also there might be some headroom using other input ports or the more advanced parameters of Nvidia resolution customization.
It probably would not work well, if the LCD refreshes bleeds into each other.
I've got some high speed videos on Blur Busters that shows what an LCD needs to do.

This high speed video of a 2007 LCD won't be able to do 3D.
This high speed video of a 2012 LCD shows a 3D compatible panel.

Well after playing around with my new vg248qe, I must admit that I love it. At first I just tried 144hz and that was a great improvement, however when I enabled the lightboost hack I was blown away. Well actually my enemies were blown away to be more precise biggrin.gif I can spin 180 degrees and back very quickly now and pick up targets with ease. If you're looking to improve your FPS skills, this is without a doubt a huge improvement. The colours were pretty horrible when I enabled lightboost, however the tips from mdrejhon helped out a lot. When in game I don't even notice a difference in the colour now, and when I'm done gaming it's easy enough to turn LB off by switching resolutions.

The only gripe that I can think of is that at 24" I can notice the lower pixel density than on my old 21.5". I sure am glad that I didn't go for a 27" 1080P, as I think the pixel density would have been too low for me with my setup.

I'm reading this thread and it's making me think I should try to sell/trade my U2412M for a VG248QE to pair with my 1440p panel. Best of both worlds perhaps? Unfortunately, I will probably have to eat costs though as finding someone willing to make the trade or sell a used VG248QE isn't easy.

Some people play with a LightBoost panel and a 1440p panel for best of both worlds. SkyViper in the LightBoost user reviews keeps both monitors to get the best of both worlds. It's just a a computer desk management challenge.

If you want better color quality during LightBoost (less loss of contrast), I steer you in the direction of the 27" LightBoost panels. They achieve higher contrast ratios during LightBoost. That said, the VG248QE is the cheapest LightBoost monitor at just ~$250 from several sources, so the low cost for that model is a buying consideration more important than LightBoost color quality. LightBoost color adjustments can be found in LightBoost FAQ.
