Samsung SA700D, SA750D, and SA950D has a little-known strobe backlight similar to LightBoost that eliminate LCD motion blur. Samsung does not advertise this as an official LightBoost feature. A synchronized stroboscopic backlight works by keeping pixel persistence in total darkness (unseen by eye) between refreshes, and strobing the backlight only on fully-refreshed LCD frames (high speed video). As a result, the refresh-synchronized strobe backlight eliminate LCD motion blur. This brings CRT motion clarity to LCD displays.
Enable Strobe Mode on SA700D, SA750D and SA950D
Set your PC into 120 Hz mode.
(Control Panel → Display → Adjust Resolution → Advanced → Monitor)
Before the next step, change “Response Time” to “Normal” via the monitor OSD.
Now, turn on “3D” via the monitor OSD, frame-sequential mode.
Keep using the monitor even for 2D gaming. (No 3D glasses needed)
For better color, change “Magic Angle” to “Group View”
