Also, I absolutely agree with you about the iMac, that's what I said as well.  It destroys the BenQ in every way except gaming.
Nobody needs 100+ fps, it's just a lot smoother and I prefer it.  Plus you don't get the lightboost benefit under 100fps.

Hmmm interesting
It's 2011 after all ;D

But yes, nothing really compares to an FW900 as an overall package, but they are 10 years out of production now, and dying off.
A Lightboost monitor will have a brighter, sharper image, and less motion blur (yes, less motion blur) than an FW900. The contrast, color, uniformity and viewing angles of Lightboost monitors - most LCDs for that matter - is poor though.

The fastest display with good color qualities is probably one of Sony's latest TV models (the W8 in particular) but those are much larger.

What are some of the light boost monitors? BenQ 24? I thought light boost is only for the 3D stuff?

Here's some of them

Enabling lightboost in 2D mode reduces motion blur to CRT levels (monitor backlight strobes off in between frames so blur isn't seen)

I use a 2560x1440 CATLEAP and it is fantastic for a ~$350 monitor.

I have a 2420tx benq with lightboost and I remember reading that reduced motion blur comes at a cost of ghosting does it not?

No, it comes at a cost of reduced visual quality, meaning that you can't use most of your other monitor settings to fix brightness, color etc. But you can use something like the Nvidia control panel to help adjust these things.  

 

But in terms of the blur that you see, which ghosting contributes to, you will notice significantly LESS blur in 2D lightboost mode.

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:

 

Quote:

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!
