The Blur Busters Blog | Mark Rejhon's information site about scanning backlights, LCD motion blur elimination techniques, and projects. is a great resource for this. A guy named Mark Rejhon has done a lot of work and research almost to the point of obsesssion.
That's me.

Here's a new tip; if you can live with reduced brightness.
Lower the LightBoost setting via the monitor's menus (OSD) downwards to about 50% or less, even as low as 10%. The reduces the strobe lengths of the LightBoost stroboscopic backlight; and reduces motion blur even further, to be more similar to CRT phosphor decay (under 2ms). The image is slightly dimmer but the motion clarity now matches CRT

I'm the guy who wrote one of the more popular LightBoost HOWTO's. (I actually live in Toronto, by the way -- so I'm a local!) For the best CRT silky motion effect, make the frame rates match refresh rates -- so make sure you test LightBoost (when using it in 2D without glasses) on games that easily run 120fps -- such as Source Engine video games (older games). You should not have problems getting that framerate.
Let me know if you have any questions.
