120Hz Monitors – Motion Blur Eliminating

Includes: LightBoost, ULMB (G-SYNC), EIZO Turbo 240, BENQ Blur Reduction
These monitors eliminate motion blur using an optional strobe backlight mode such as LightBoost. For more info, see TFTCentral: Motion Blur Reduction Backlights for explanations. Low-persistence strobe backlights allows LCD to have CRT motion clarity.

True 120Hz Televisions / Projectors

Some HDTV and projectors can be used as a 120Hz computer monitor, see HDTV Overclocking HOWTO: 120Hz from PC to TV. There are others, however, the displays below are carefully selected displays with consistent success reports of true 120Hz.
