    Motion blur on LG L226WTQ-SF (FW 1.30)

    Hey,

    I've just bought two LG L226WTQ 22" widescreen monitors which are suffering from a considerable amount of motion blur, despite the 2ms response time. LG said that the monitors are probably faulty and I should return them. Since I have two of the monitors, they must either be from a bad batch or have a bad firmware revision.

    I was just wondering whether anyone else with these monitors with FW 1.30 was suffering from motion blur, and whether anyone with different firmware could notice any motion blur.

    Thankyou in advance for any replies.

    Have you seen other LCD displayed that don't show this motion blur?

    AFAIK it's a side effect of the fact that LCDs don't fade to black inbetween refresh passes.

    Thank you for your reply kalniel. I am aware of what cause motion blur on LCD monitors, I'm just surprised by the amount of motion blur I'm getting considering that that is a 2ms (grey-to-grey) panel. I did some tests and I make the true response time to be about 30ms.

    I have friends with 2ms panels which barely have any noticeable motion blur, and neither should mine according to all the reviews I have read. I need to know where the problem lies before I decide to get replacements or go for different monitors.

    *nods* if it's poor compared to others then it does sound like somethings not right - like the RTC engine not working correctly. Can you enable it in the menu options anywhere?

    Aye you can enable / disable the overdrive function with some monitors, I'd check out the OSD.
