121 Hz is actually 120.5 Hz, which is still within supported range. I just needed a way for it to be listed separately because there's no way to have two 120 Hz refresh rates in Windows.

The darkness is normal. Strobing will reduce the brightness because the backlight is only on for about 30% of the time at 100% brightness.

The faint horizontal lines are a panel issue. Some panels have it worse than others, and it affects the 24" models the most.

Now enabled strobing in CS:GO the screen ingame stayed darkened (color was a bit grayed) like on desktop and those 'grids' still remained ingame whereas in BO2 the brightness and color seemed to be normal. Does that mean LB is not working in BO2?
NVIDIA has a "preferred refresh rate" option in the control panel that should be set to "application controlled" and not "highest available"; otherwise, it might try to override 120 Hz with 121 Hz. The 3D light should stay on when strobing is enabled.

One of my BenQs is used with an Avermedia Live Gamer HD cap card so I duplicate 1 and 2 and use 3 as my desktop extension.
It shouldn't affect the ability to duplicate two monitors, but I don't know what happens when a third monitor is involved. You might have to add 60 Hz as a third refresh rate to make it work.
