Another testimonial guys. This REALLY works.. This has changed my life.. The last CRT I owned was a 19 inch view-sonic. One day I decided I was gonna get with the "Jones" and get me an LCD cuz my mate had a BenQ LCD and it was flat and stuff and cool and stuff.. I got a 19" view-sonic LCD.... My gut dropped when I realized what technology I had stepped into.. The motion blur was horrendous. At the time I was playing Unreal Tournament and I went backwards in game play. I really couldn't see anything. I was so upset.. As technology progressed over the years speeds of the LCDs have gotten quicker.. The fastest LCD I have owned is my just now superseded Acer GD245HQ 2ms 3d (non-lightboosted) 23.6 inch triple way monitor.. (3 side by side) monitor(s). Up until just yesterday I thought I was at the cutting edge... Surely to get a 1ms monitor cant be worth the money, nor the hassle.. "I'm at the tier" or so I thought. Until reading up on this new light-boost hack , tweak, ABSOLUTE AWESOMENESS that has been discovered. I went out a bought a single ASUS VG278HE monitor to see it for my own eyes. Holy F(^&ing S&%t.. Is all I can say.. I am once again back to the days of my Unreal Tournament on a 19"monitor but now the luxury of a 27".. Without a doubt this is the 7th wonder of the world. This find has brought LCDs back into the realm of gaming as we once new it.. Have no fear people. This works on the monitors that have been outlined... You will never look back.. I can now sell my 3 ACER monitors to re-coupe the cost of the ASUS and live happy. So far Ive tested Dirt 3, Battlefield 3, BioShock, Crysis 3 and the gameplay has changed people. It sis so smooth and crisp. You can see everything on the screen, as it moves, and clearly. No blurriness.. Once the blurriness kicks in your brain just switches it off., Have you noticed the latest ad campaign tactics of blurring out the surroundings of the picture that the ad makers don't want you to concentrate on? Thats what happens in game play.. Now with this light boost set in place you can see everything even if its moving.. Do it.. Do it now... It is awesome.. Now to test M.A.M.E. thumb.gif

If you want a non-Lightboost 120-144 Hz monitor that has a wide brightness adjustment and zero-PWM flicker, the Xl2420TE is the one to get (well, the only). I personally love Lightboost strobing and zero-PWM on m y eyes versus regular PWM strobing.

I would normally have stuck with my Dell U2413 but I found a nasty bug in which if you have a surround setup at 120 Hz, and a 60 Hz monitor on the side it doesn't work properly and the "feel" of the 120 Hz setup drops down to the 60 Hz. So, if you have a 120 Hz surround setup and want to run that 4th screen, you must match it with a 120 Hz screen.

VEGA since you owned the Samy 750D's as I have do you think going to the 2720 or asus would be worth it?

Granted, the Sammies are about the best looking TN panels out there, but I'd have to go with the XL2720T and Lightboost. De-matted of course. wink.gif

Honest answer. I have to get one through Amazon I guess and pay CA tax because B&H photo has the 2720 for $422 but they want $152!!! for shipping. I would love to have one with the matte removed but not sure if I have the brass bells to do it.biggrin.gif

So where are the before and after comparison shots of the 2720T without the matt? wink.gif

I've been searching and can't find an answer. I have lightboost working and set at 120hz, however my frme rate still goes up to 144hz. I have adaptive vsync on and turn off vsync in games. How can i get it to cap at 120fps? it seems even if I turn on vsync it still goes to 144fps.
Edit: I just ran crysis 2 and it caps at 100fps. I have adaptive vsync on and monitor set to 120hz with lightboost.

does the toastyx program work with amd cards? I was thinking of getting a vg248qe and running lightboost to relive the crt days.

Check if your game has VSYNC OFF and an incorrectly-configured fps_max setting. It may also be defective LightBoost, make sure LightBoost is enabled -- check your monitor menus and see if the "nVidia LightBoost" adjustment is enabled. A good motion test is www.testufo.com/#test=photo (view this link in Chrome).
