Hello! I am a new owner of the XG2431, and I am quite happy with the quality and performance of the monitor thus far. I have a general question regarding the "PureXP" setting. Is there any potential of this setting shortening the lifespan of the panel? I notice that when you turn it on, the "eco" usage automatically reverts to maximum (100%). I tend to replace computer monitors less than average compared to most users so I would like to do everything I can to preserve this monitor as long as possible. Does backlight strobing put more wear and tear on the panel? Sorry for the wordy/potentially confusing question and thanks in advance!

Not for the XG2431 model specifically.

The voltage boosting on the XG2431 is much more conservative than on several models such as the XL2546. There are some reports of excess voltage boosted strobe backlights causing LED lumens to go down over the long-term, but this hasn't been reported for the XG2431 model. A study by CREE LED found that you can do a 3:1 boost without appreciably wearing the LEDs down, and the XG2431 only does about a 2:1 boost of brightness.

That way, all lighting including backlights/edgelights including CCFL and LEDs do have a finite lifetime -- whether you use strobing or not. Your brightness will slowly go down over the years. Your maximum brightness today might go down by 25% in five years from now, as one example -- this type of wear will occur regardless of whether you use a strobe backlight or not. This applies to all monitors, a screen purchased 10 years ago typically generally is not able to do the same maximum brightness today -- whether CRT, plasma, LCD (regardless of backlight), OLED.

For longest longevity, you may wish to protect your equipment with some power protection such as an uninterruptable power supply with power-surge/conditioning capabilities. That way, grid disruptions is less likely to disrupt your monitor.

Thanks chief! I appreciate the fast and informative response. I am generally pretty conservative with my monitors--I actually have the brightness set to zero on this monitor for productivity use! I will use the PureXP feature without hesitation for gaming purposes as it definitely makes a considerable difference. I imagine the decreased brightness from the BFI is still more conservative than leaving it at a static setting with blown out brightness. Cheers!

So I got my XG2431 to day and did the LVT trick and strobe utility and this is what I got

The Pixel 3 camera doesn't do it justice, it's a lot clearer in person. This is about 100 Nits.
