I asked Simon from TFTCental and he answered me that they tested both 1:1 and default Full wide mode and it made no difference.

But it is known that lowest input lag is in Original mode (see first post). I've informed Simon when it was found, but they did not retest the monitor so initially measured values are still in review.

Not gonna delve into this again, but I also tried different modes and felt the same input lag+seen the smearyness while panning...
I hope one day you'll try either the XL2540 or 2740, k2viper... and see/feel the difference. (XL2546 is bad.)

I believe my next monitor will be based on newer "0,5ms" panel, either 1080 or 1440p one. Not sure XL2740 worth buying from LG today in late 2019. You are a monitor geek, I'm not, and I just feel easy if even XL2740 does have this minor edge over LG.

From a competitive gaming basis, I also feel how results improve due to training and gaming experience, and see a very minor edge how they improve due to hardware upgrades.

Yes, maybe in some time I will see... but I was even hard to tell does last Nvidia low lag Ultra does matter or not. Current edge it is giving at 300+fps 240hz is rather small. So I cheer just playing and training, and waiting for next big things to arrive and upgrade to 8-)

Yeah, buying the XL2740 wouldn't be worth it at this point, wise decision with waiting for the 0.5ms 240hz panels!
Those will be even better.

And you're right, if the goal is to get better, even a basic 144hz monitor would get the job done.

I'd say just wait until a new Benq display comes out with those 0,5ms response time panels... that would surely warrant an upgrade, not sure about the 2540... depends on how competitive u are.

Well, I'm not professional but I play esea and I invest a lot of hours and training and I still want to improve. I love to test mouses and monitors. Many pros uses this benq and says it's awesome. I've tested xl2411p and its not so awesome as many people says. Also tested zowie Ec2b and its trash so Im not sure if upgrade to benq or wait new monitors. That's why I'm asking.
This forum is so good.

I'm really happy with how this monitor manages to handle motion with it's "1ms Motion Blur Reduction" strobe.

However, it's disabled by the menu at 60Hz and this makes it pointless for 60Hz content (all consoles, 1080p@60 videos, retro games, etc).

So far my only solution has been RetroArch's "blank frame insertion" at 120Hz but it's a bit buggy at times and it doesn't cover any other 60Hz content. I'd love to watch 60fps videos with fluid motion, I don't mind the flicker!

Are there any software solutions for windows or a custom firmware that will enable strobing at 60Hz?

sorry matchaman, i don't know.

i've contacted LG for the last time regarding the firmware bug.

meanwhile i've checked that there's a new windows 10 driver. which wont fix the issue

So since LG don't want to help us, we have to find a different way.
We need to make this problem BIG.

Best thing would be, if a big tech youtuber would make a video about it.
Or some way to get LG to actually care about it...

If it gets enough attention LG has to do something about it.


EDIT: Shit is getting hilarious.
