How do you get a factory reset anyway? I just want to go back to default settings.
Menu > System > Reset All.
So is that actually a factory reset? I think it is just a user reset. Some monitor has a factory reset in the service menu or factory menu.
It reset default refresh rate to 60Hz and all other things. But in the normal menu "reset all" doesn't roll back to 60Hz refresh rate like the first time I plug the monitor into the computer. And the strobe light settings doesn't seem to reset.

And after I used strobe unity, the strobe crosstalk got worse and I still don't know to get back to original strobe settings of this monitor. At first, I didn't install the strobe unity, the monitor itself has a very good strobe light that just has slightly even doubled images on all screen. Now I have triple images on the top and the end of the monitor and double image in the middle.

I read in the forum some XL2546 has triple images on the top and the end, but I didn't experience it until I installed strobe unity. Is it possible that strobe unity will quietly change monitor strobe settings if it is previously installed on the computers?

don't know if somebody has already posted this, but I'd like to share the settings I've found for the benq xl2456.
Following this thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2467, entering the factory menu, "OD" -> "OD GAIN" the hexadimal value "3F" is the value which gives the most clear image while using 240 Hz, dyac set to "off" and AMA to "Premium". The binary value is "0011 1111" and decimal "63".
Testing this http://www.testufo.com/#test=ghosting, "1080 pixel per second", I see no ghosting anymore (upper ufo), just a barely noticeable tail following the ufo at the top left corner (middle) and the same for the bottom ufo.

It's still not the same visual clarity as with dyac set to "Premium/High" but way way way better than with the "OD GAIN" set to the standard "4C". Pretty impressive :o
Now, during movement, absolutely everything looks incredible sharp.
why my od gain value are numbers not 3F or something

Can you please post a picture of https://testufo.com/crosstalk with these settings and perhaps the default settings as a comparison? Also, anyone with a XL2740, please try this and do the same...I beg you.
