Yes, it's well worth it. Of course, you'll pay a premium for this simple feature unfortunately, due to its proprietary lock-in (new LightBoost monitors, NVIDIA graphics cards(s) and emitter) but you won't look back, you'll love it so much. Assuming you have the money and want to spend that much...
I'm sure that threads like this will spread to other forums and demand for it will grow. There is seriously no technical hurdle to making a generic version of LightBoost, it's so simple. What I can't understand is why NVIDIA isn't promoting this benefit? I've actually had this monitor for a month before I realized what it was capable of. Let's get the word out there of the benefits of backlight strobing!
