whybother;

The refresh rates should be independent of readability. Readability is not dependent on refresh rate, but pixel response times which are constant with respect to refresh rates, rather depending on the panel itself.

Regardless, my results with PixPerAn:

On my Dell U2312hm, I consistently get response rates 7-9. My first try at it, likely the most accurate, was 7. My first try at my Catleap @85hz, I got 8. My highest score was on the Catleap, where I got a score of 10.

In my experience, on my Dell U2312hm, I would estimate my "typical" score at 8. My Catleap I can get 9 relatively often.

That may be the case for slower response time panels. I added my results at 60hz on the Samsung 2233rz, where readability does improve with hz. The same is true for the Dell 2209wa.

I've not seen any IPS panel reviewed to date score double digits in the readability test. Was your score of 10 adjusted? If not it would actually be 14.

Ah, I see. Seems a little weird though. Why would the Samsung be more readable at higher refresh rates? I'm going to have to test my Catleap without my secondary to see if that makes a difference.

Adjusted? I am not sure what you are getting at here. I don't have access to my monitor right now, so I can't check it out...

PixPerAn is bugged. The text scrolls faster at higher hz. At 120hz the text is moving twice as fast as at 60hz*

*I may be wrong on the exact speed difference tho.

In that case, no, my scores were not adjusted. Given your adjustment, my score would be 14. I did not notice any significant difference in my score between 60 hz and 85 hz.

Has anyone gotten the PCBANK PB2700 yet? I ordered one from dreamseller when he first posted it, but I just got a message today saying he accidentally sent me a crossover 27Q and he's asking for the difference in prices... Not really sure what to do now (I went with the PB2700 because of higher scores on playwares and cheaper price...). I don't want to screw him over on cost of return shipping and sending a PB2700, but at the same time I don't know if I want to keep the vanilla crossover.

If you get one with no dead or stuck pixels, i'd pay the difference and keep the crossfire, rather than take the chance of getting a PB2700 with dead pixels.

BTW: I read the other replies in the other thread.
People make mistakes, we're all human.
So, no i PERSONALLY wouldn't try to stiff him on the $50 difference.

Oh I'm definitely not going to stiff him on it, I understand that mistakes are made especially when there's ridiculous interest in these. Another reason I wanted the PB2700 was also the forward tilt (the monitor sits a bit above eye level for me), so I don't know if the vanilla crossover will actually work for me. I'm just wondering if there's a way to get it back to him without incurring shipping cost for myself or him. I think someone else had a similar problem very early on in the thread, but I don't know how they got it resolved. Does refusing the package work?

I jumped back on here to ask the same question.
I'm pretty sure if you refuse shipment, it doesn't cost you anything.
Can anyone confirm this?

So he makes a mistake and wants you to pay the difference to keep it? That's pretty bulli****ty, especially since you wanted the other monitor. It's going to cost him way more than the difference to have it shipped back to him.
