Hello and thank you for your inquiry for the new FG2421 monitor. This monitor was released yesterday to EIZO's North America resellers so it should be getting inputted into order systems from our dealers today. The product is in stock and can ship same day PO received from EIZO's warehouse. EIZO does not sell direct, so this product must be purchased through a reseller. Please find a list of resellers using the below link:http://www.eizo.com/na/purchase/where/resellers.html
Eizo has handled this release very well. Announcement, reviews, shipping all within a few days. Impressive.

If the backlight is off during transition this cause flickering like lightboost ?
In 240Turbo mode, the monitor acts exactly like a Lightboost monitor. Just with an upgraded panel and no color shifts and contrast decimation of regular 3D Lightboost.

1. the frame double feature is completely worthless, and to have it as a feature makes me think its in there so only to trick ignorant consumers into thinking its something special
2. why would anyone buy a new gaming monitor now with G-Sync right around the corner? Unless this is going to be capable of the upgrade, it would be a pretty big waste IMO, but I see nothing in that regard.
3. the most minor issue I have is aesthetics/ergonomics seem to be lacking. The bezel looks fine, nice a trim, but the stand looks ugly and cheap (KEEP IT SIMPLE LIKE THE BEZEL YOU FOOLS!!! so many manufactures make this mistake...).
otherwise I want to like it as it seems like a straight upgrade over all the TN we have been stuck with, but the lack of G-Sync (or info on whether or not it will be compatible) are killing my excitement for this product, and the turbo mode is only rubbing salt in that wound
The 240 Hz part is just marketing jumbo. I've purchased this monitor due to my needs. A VA Panel with Lightboost motion clarity at 120+ FPS/Hz outweighs the benefits for me over G-Sync. G-Sync will be awesome for 60 Hz displays like IPS, 4K monitors etc. It's effect on 120+ Hz gameplay will be much less apparent, and I'd rather have strobing backlight motion clarity.

Both this, and this Eizo monitor, are much better implementations of the tech. Don't get me wrong, I'm a competitive gamer and would never contemplate trading the motion resolution I get with lightboost for a worse picture with better colors. But with the Eizo, you get both. On a VA panel with insane contrast.
What else do you need to know about G-Sync? There's a ton of info on Blurbusters if you need some clarification.
There needs to be some clarification here as things can be misinterpreted. G-Sync will have a Lightboost mode, but it will not work with G-Syncs features to eliminate tearing, stuttering, and input lag etc. Those all rely on a variable refresh rate of the monitor, which does not
work with a strobing backlight. You will either be able to run in Lightboost mode, or GSync mode. Not both. 60 Hz non-strobing backlight motion clarity does not do it for me.
