Chief Blur Buster : Benq Zowie XL2735 needs "Single Strobe"

Postby Falkentyne » 07 Oct 2016, 14:03

VT tweaks (Up to VT 1825) work on the new Zowie XL2735, fixing what was busted in the XL2730Z, but there is no "Single Strobe" override option. 60hz and 85hz are double strobing. Not good for consoles! Need a firmware update...Please contact Benq :(

Monitor has been tested with low refresh VT tweaks and unlike the XL2720Z, the monitor will *NOT* single strobe below 100hz at all. Even with a VT tweak that would "Force" the XL2720Z to single strobe (if single strobe were disabled in the servicemenu), at a fixed value of Duty=020, and Phase=040, the XL2735 will always double strobe lower than 100 hz :(

Please Chief, talk to Benq. They need to address this.
I will not buy this monitor until Benq includes a firmware with single strobe option or FORCED single strobe at all times (and allow Intensity/Area adjustments) at all refresh rates lower than 100hz.

If Benq includes this, they will have another sale from me and more recommendations to others.
If not, I can't buy this monitor :( Single strobe is VERY IMPORTANT to me at 60hz and 85hz....

Remember I CAN FLASH THE FIRMWARE MYSELF. I just need the firmware with single strobe enabled or a service menu option to toggle it on/off for 60hz/85hz/custom refresh rates lower than 100hz.

What is the point of double strobing the image? It looks worse than nothing at all.

I have NO idea why 'double strobing' is even a feature. People can either use single strobe at 60hz, or sample and hold. It's totally illogical.

I really hope Chief reads this. They need a firmware update.
If they release one, I'll buy the monitor and flash the firmware with the RT809f flasher.

BTW max Vertical total at 2560x1440 is 1825. Strobe Crosstalk is reduced considerably. If the default VT at 120hz is 1449, this is a 25% increase in VT And thus a 25% reduction in crosstalk. This is IDENTICAL to the XL2720Z when going from VT 1144 to VT 1500.

1854 VT if you reduce the horizontal total.

This means that the "single strobe" override can EASILY be implemented in this monitor, since they're using familiar strobe methods we are all used to.

One of you guys here HAVE to be able to contact Benq. Please. They have an email and 1-800#, but Chief would have the most power to make something happen.

Plus ** THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR 60HZ CONSOLES! **. I mean who wants to double strobe at 60hz over HDMI?

Bumping this. The benq xl2735 looks to be the perfect monitor for console gaming but they're basically sabotaging their own product by not supporting single strobe. Benq please stop ignoring the entire console community (and pc gamers without fast gpu's).

Also I want to show appreciation for Falkentyne's work even when it's not appreciated by benq. As it stands the first company that supports single strobe and markets it will gain massive support (from the non-master console race).

Oh wow, thank you. Not often someone calls a shoutout to me.
Yes, such an option is elementary to implement. And there are no excuses...is it really that hard to include a "Single Strobe on/off" option? The XL2720Z had it. The XL2420Z had it. The XL2430T and XL2411Z had it....

Yes, it made no difference at 100hz-144hz (it was considered always on at those refresh rates) but that's besides the point. I'm aware there was a "bug" in the old (V002) original Benq firmwares where the Strobe custom settings didn't always work when changing refresh rates, unless SS were set to enabled, but this bug was fixed in V4 and newer (maybe fixed in V3), so such the chance of a new bug happening should not have caused Benq to just abandon this setting. Maybe they thought people only played counter-strike and didn't play 60 hz games or console output ??

I honestly don't know how big companies are run but I feel like they do NOT care about their customers.....only about money...
