    I've done the light boost thingy, not sure I can really tell the difference. I had to boost brightness in CCC as the strobing dimmed it a bit...also it might be giving me a bit of a headache...

    I've not found it that beneficial with the XL2420t compared to some of the other 120Hz panels - does seem to tidy up some of the overdrive artifacts (mostly RTC errors) a bit but its already so responsive I'm not sure its worth the decrease in color saturation.

    EDIT: Just seen this comment in PCM2's article on the RTS mode "Blue looks lilac and some severe oversaturation elsewhere. Generally looks messy on the desktop but some fantasy-based real time strategy could possibly benefit." sums up what mine looks like pretty much regardless of calibration or settings even with the best possible calibration that comment would still be true.

    After I setup my settings I love this display. Best gaming monitor I have used.

    Does this monitor only give out 60hz when connecting to HDMI?

    Was looking at this monitor to use for the new PS4, but heard it wont give 120hz over HDMI?

    No current display gives out a native 120Hz over HDMI. And the PS4 is limited to a 60Hz signal anyway AFAIK. The games only run at 30fps or 60fps so there is no need for more.

    Ah, so this monitor would be overkill?

    a normal IPS screen with a low response time and 60hz will not suffer with ghosting or lag with the PS4?
