Acer Nitro XF252Q 240hz strobing question

Post by ArtoSenpai » 13 Sep 2019, 00:52

Quoting the rtings review: ( ... tro-xf252q)
The BFI feature is a bit strange on this monitor. When it's enabled, it's no longer possible to adjust the backlight. The backlight instead changes to a fixed level, which varies depending on the refresh rate. With Overdrive set to 'Extreme' and the refresh rate set to 240Hz, the backlight pulses twice, which can cause noticeable duplications in motion.
I'm planning to use a monitor in 240hz mode with BFI on. Is the double strobing a problem? Do the older monitors do that too, say the Zowie XL2546?

Another question rises from the tftcentral review ( ... 2q.htm#mbr)

They measured single strobing at 240hz? Could someone please clarify what's going on here.
