The 2420TX has a minor trailing-motion artifact when it comes to LightBoost, but the VG248QE and XL2411T does not have the artifact. That said, the best LightBoost monitors for color quality are the 27" models, which is ironic since 27" is too big for some people. For a list of monitors that support LightBoost, see 120Hz Monitors List.
Also, see the LightBoost FAQ at http://www.blurbusters.com/lightboost/faq/ for instructions on how to adjust for LightBoost color. Generally, it is the following:
1. If you own the VG248QE, lower your monitor’s Contrast until the purple disappears.
e.g. BENQ XL2411T and ASUS VG248QE looks less purple at a Contrast of “45″.
The VG278H (better LightBoost) is unaffected by the VG248QE purple tint issue.
2. Use These nVidia Control Panel Settings for better LightBoost color
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Brightness = 52%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Color = 45%
nVidia Control Panel Gamma = 0.70
The good news is there's now a new LightBoost Utility called ToastyX Strobelight, that allows you to turn on/off LightBoost easily via a keypress shortcut. No registry/inf hacks, it's just an easy utility now!
