Good to know that more monitors use strobe backlights now!
Have you heard of the popularity of LightBoost's method of strobing? It has been commonly used as an unofficial strobe backlight since late 2012 by Counterstrike players, Battlefield 3 players. Google "LightBoost", or "LightBoost media coverage".
Eizo is the first one to _officially_ bring a modern (high-efficiency) strobe backlight to computer monitors, in an official manner aimed at 2D motion blur reduction, rather than having 2D blur reduction as an unofficial secondary feature of 3D crosstalk reduction.Questions about FG2421
1. When you view a controlled motion test such as http://www.testufo.com
on your FG2421, how many % less motion blur do you see, when turning on Turbo240? TestUFO has several selectable tests at the upper-right corner.
2. LightBoost users know that reducing brightness also increases motion clarity (due to shorter persistence -- shorter strobe lengths). When you reduce brightness during Turbo240, do you see motion clarity improve further when viewing controlled motion tests?
3. If you have a LightBoost monitor, does Turbo240 have more motion blur or less motion blur than LightBoost?
(Google "list of 120Hz monitors" to find a list of supported LightBoost monitors, and a link to instructions on enabling the undocumented strobe backlight mode).
