Lightboost Lines?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Anyone notice lines on your monitor when using lightboost?



Using a BenQ XL2420T and have tried both of these* lightboost methods, yet they both display this issue.

This is a side-effect on certain (not all) LightBoost monitors.
It's a panel limitation, as the panel is being driven to, very, very near its limits.

It's much better on newer panels (e.g. XL2420TE).
It's also perhaps possible that the G-SYNC upgrade has much better pixel driving that will fix this, too (not 100% confirmed).

Thanks for the info, kinda bummer though...

By, "being driven to, very, very near its limits", might it then be dangerous to leave lightboost activated all the time on my monitor?

I use the exact same monitor and don't have this issue. Weird... wheee.gif

When did you get yours?

I've had mine for quite a while. Perhaps it's the age of the panel?

Sorry man, what lines are you talking about? Don't see any in the picture other than what looks to be the grain of the anti-glare coating.

Zoom the photo large, and you'll see bright-dim-bright-dim scan line effect every other pixel row.
It's a panel issue, on some runs of LCD panels.

(I'm familiar with this artifact -- it affects one of my two LightBoost monitors, and only at the upper-right corner. My VG278H has none of this artifact, while it effects the upper-right corner of my XL2411T)
