    Is it normal for the screen to flicker BY ITSELF when on 2a and 4a? Sorry if it has been asked here before, but I am not sure as to whether or not I should take it back. Does this happen to you guys as well?

    Should've mentioned that I'm on a unibody MBP (15 inch - late '08).

    Probably just how the screen is built. My old 12" PowerBook flickers on pattern 3.

    Normal, even my 23" ACD does it but on a different inversion profile compared to my 17" UB.

    it looks like it is normal from what people said in other threads. Though it is strange, that i never noticed this except with MBP. Never noticed it in my old Dell or IBM and to much lesser extent in black macbook :confused:

    Each LCD uses a different inversion method/technique as described here:

    My screen doesn't seem to flicker. Either that or I'm just not seeing what I'm supposed to see. Hmmm...

    I guess you missed the notice where it said, "Warning do not click if you are sensitive to flicker" :D

    Yes, mine flickers a bit.

    7b is really bad on my external monitor.
