Thanks for your input, anything else you want to tell me/might influence my decision is welcome.
Hey, though this was directed at chief I'll give my input on what I think I competently can.
First of all, do you mind sharing your settings on your moniter? As in the brightness, contrast, R/G/B, etc, mine looks a bit wonky right now.. lol, I'm not sure what's best.
I change mine depending on what I'm using it for. But for general use (i.e., anything that isn't csgo), I just set the picture/color mode to Standard, AMA to high, DyAc to premium, black equalizer to 0, color vibrance to 10. I really haven't been able to improve the image quality much compared the Standard preset. For CSGO, it's totally personal preference. Here is a list of settings pro players use(d): https://www.prosettings.com/best-benq-monitor-settings/
(no idea how current this is)
Hey, so, I went through with it, atleast, I think I did, and I set mine to around 1900 vertical, and it looks really amazing compared to before, like, barely any crosstalk what so ever, accross the whole monitor, except for a small bit on the bottom. My last moniter had a decent amount of ghosting/crosstalk on the tops and bottoms, but I got used to it and stopped noticing it. I'm not 100% sure if I did this whole thing right, but when using the blur buster utility tool I definitely noticed that it was far different and I could move it so that it was barely there at all, so at the very least I know for certain that something changed. If anyone has any more in depth instructions on using the custom resolution thing, then please let me know, but i'm fairly certain this worked.
To get the best feel for what you're looking for, you may want to compare how motion looks at the extremes of the crosstalk/refresh rate spectrum. You can create a custom resolution using the same process as before except set the refresh rate to 100 Hz and the VT to about 2300. Then calibrate using the strobe utility.
Then, switch to 240 Hz and try to calibrate using the strobe utility. You'll notice a massive difference in the size of the crosstalk zone and its severity.
I'm rather happy with this, now I just wonder if it was worth 500 dollars for a moniter that is essentially a slightly better version of my last one. Does anyone have any advice on this? I still have about 2 and a half weeks to return it if I like, but I'm not really utilizing 240hz, since I'm using the 144 setting, and I can't help but feel a bit weird about it all.
If today I were to buy a monitor for MBR, it would certainly be the XG270. I bought my XL2546 before good IPS alternatives (like the ViewSonic) were available. I would pick the XG270 if its price were equal to the XL2546, but because it's cheaper (in the US), your choice is actually between the XL2546 or the XG270 plus $80. Easy choice, I think.
Could I possibly have your opinion on this current moniter and the vertical things I've been doing along with this one vs the ViewSonic one that you guys officially supported?
My interpretation of this:

Also, manual VT tweaks are generally unnecessary on the XG270 since its refresh cycles are already full velocity at lower Hz.
is that the ViewSonic monitor effectively does automatically what you've done manually on the Zowie monitor.
