Please pay attention to Blur Busters for the next monitor giveaway, which will likely be one of our GSYNC monitors :D


The giveaway was valid only until February 28th, 2015

Forum Registrations are working now!

Earlier, an overeager spamfilter was blocking everyone from registering for several days.
As an apology for the inconvenience of the beserk spamfilter,
I'm going to give away one of the 144Hz monitors that I own.

Free 120Hz+ LightBoost Monitor Prize
For a Randomly Selected Newly Registered Forum Member

A BENQ XL2411T Gaming Monitor (value: $250) will be given away to a newly registered forum member (5 posts).

RULES:
(1) Register! You are newly registered between January 26th, 2015 through February 28th, 2015, inclusive (Greenwich Mean Time)
(2) You must make a minimum of 5 forum posts by Febraury 28th, that are deemed legitimate posts (at Moderator's discretion)
(3) A randomly selected newly registered new forum member, meeting (1) and (2) will be chosen.
(4) The website http://www.random.org will be used to select the forum member number between forum member #1424 through the last registered forum member right up to the final final second (23:59:59) Greenwich Mean Time on February 28th, 2015.
(5) Monitor is currently sitting in Chief Blur Buster's Lab. It will be packed into its original box, with DVI and power cables.

(7) One registration per person. No multiple registrations.

(I know, I know -- this rule may sound silly -- but the Legal Beagles needs it!)

Skill testing eh? As in, how to tweak your monitor strobr settings for maximum blur reduction? Or skill as in something more mundane that a newbie could get right?

Nice gesture btw, chief :)

Standard simple math skill testing question typical of these giveaways.
Giveaways can be illegal in some states without a skill testing component, while skill testing questions turn them into bona-fide contests, and contests are legal even if the question is as simple as (3 x 4) + 1

Awesome. Not only did the registration get fixed, (at least it did for me) now there is a chance to win a new 120hz monitor. What a great way to start the week in the positive category.

I just recently found this site and am so pleased with what I've learned. My only question for this "contest," we'll say, is: Do the posts need to be five standalone posts or do replies like this one count? Oh, and the link from Twitter seems to be a bust. It ends up on a page that just say, "You are not authorised to read this forum." The Twitter link has f=9 instead of f=2.

Recently used this site to test a few things. Hopefully I can get some more information on high frequency monitors.
