Also wondering about this, Any guides? Third party programs? In the driver I can only choose 59 or 60.

TA-Planet, however, has been totally resistant to either sending a new circuit board, or a return, so I am likely going to have to file a dispute.

Yeah i suppose, Red-Cap hasn't been horrible. But it's a coinflip no matter who you buy it from definitely.

Broken record here, but it's eBay, file a claim or a credit card chargeback! Do not accept crappy products and think "oh it's fine because it was cheap." If it says tested, do not accept anything less! If it says pixel perfect, do not take a discount for bad pixels! Take a picture of it for proof and do a chargeback!

Just to make sure, you're not talking about the screen door effect thats inherent with matte monitors right?
Cause what you describe sounds similar to that, which isnt a defect, just a trade off of having a matte screen. Google it if you dont know what I mean.

Otherwise, that sucks, and maybe you should escalate this to paypal if he really wont budge.

What was the shipping route for your monitor? Mine is the same between ordering from Red-Cap and Ta_Planet.
It's 1 stop in Korea, then it's in China for quite some time until Koeln, Paris and finally where i live.
I've read about americans recieving it after 2 days which sounds crazy to me.

Wow, that's an extreme advantage when talking about damage sustained during shipping. The short route really makes it easier on the package.
