But what I don't understand is why is this a problem if nearly all monitors are 60 and thus not a multiple of 24. thinking.gif

It is not a "problem" but it does provide better support for seamless video playback. Yes just about all screens are 60hz and that is also why many advanced users try and set the screen refresh to even 48hz to have stutter free playback. It is very likely your eyes have adjusted to it or you are not attentive enough to see it. I didn't used to think it was a big deal but after seeing high quality video content at a multiple of 24hz there is a definite improvement of clean video movement.

Like i said this is an old topic with mountains of threads about it. You can search "pull down" "frame insertion" "video stutter" and other common terms to find lots of talk about it. Many users see no difference but many also do, i would say the change is about the same between 60FPS and 96FPS. It is not huge but definitely note worthy and helps tremendously when playing high quality content with little resources.

EDIT: this is also why people when they get a 120hz screen all of a sudden think the video playback is much better when technically there is no new information or playback. It simply seems smoother without pull down refresh matching per software filtering.

You'll HAVE to pay it regardless, but the AMOUNT you have to pay will vary hugely.

I HIGHLY suggest you contact the ebay sellers and try and see:
1. If they'll send you a pixel perfect one
2. If they'll send as gift
3. If they even respond to your queries

Replies from sellers I got:
Pixel perfect:
  • ta-korea.global
  • excellentcastle
  • Red-Cap



Normal:
  • hulustar
  • bigclothcraft
  • gn_wholesale
  • green-sum

The NORMAL sellers told me they could pick out a perfect pixel one and would try and get me the "best monitor" but there was no guarantee.


EDIT:
Went through ALL my messages with all sellers - and in all honesty Red-Cap comes out on top, in terms of customer service BY FAR.
None of the others actually bothered to try and send or offer a perfect pixel model - even when I requested it, on their own listings that were "perfect pixel"
They all said that they could mark it down and send as a gift though.

Red-cap on the other hand, brilliant customer service.
I'll know how he/she/they really deal with customers now, as I've scheduled a return with them. I'll see what they say and/or do.
For the same Price I paid for the True10, I'll just gladly accept a straight swap for a "ultimate pixel" QNIX.

What do you mean to ask for perfect pixel? Just to make ulltra sure they send the best possible monitor, despite what their listing says?

He is trying to make sure they know that if they don't send a PP monitor there will be blood.

PP = Scam......

I'm asking them to check before sending it to me.
I'll be using this monitor for at least 2 years, and got slight OCD when it comes to things on-screen.

I know what you are doing and i with you on it. If i spent extra money on a guarantee that has as bad of a record as the PP scam i would be asking them to do things that they have listed they are going to do already too. My point is that you are making a statement by contacting them, that they better send you a good monitor or you (as a soon to be 2 year and OCD free user) will take them up on their proposed warranty. You might also want to make a point that dark, light, stuck and dim pixels will be counted as far as your concerned(which normally per many PP policies are technically not counted) as well and they better cover them too.

And dark, stuck, bright pixels? Probably not covered.

Do you have any idea what framerate youtube usually uses?
