ASUS VG248QE - Lightboost hack, no PWM?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just wanna get something straight - by the nature of Lightboost hack, there has to be flicker right? The ASUS VG248QE features no PWM, but thats at 144hz with lightboost strobing off correct?

I picked up the BenQ XL2420T for a pretty good price of $245CDN, but im wondering if the QE might be better at $285 becuz of its no PWM.

I suppose i can double check the benq at 100% brightness to see if PWM is gone while Lightboost is off when i get home...then i guess its a little better if i can keep it full while turning down brightness via windows (not ideal)

No, VG248QE actually has PWM when the brightness is dimmed. The VG248QE is often too bright during 100% brightness, so the VG248QE is not the best 120Hz monitor for this.

The only PWM-free 120Hz gaming monitor at the moment is the BENQ XL2420TE[/u] (during non-LightBoost mode). It has a MUCH wider dimming range, and dims in a PWM-free manner.
