Hi Rob,

An LED screen doesn't refresh the way a CRT does, right? The light
doesn't flash and fade, it stays constant until the next change. So
why would a 30 hz refresh rate make any difference at all for tasks
which update the screen less often than 30 times a second? Mike did
say he used it for doing software development.

Movies were shot at 24fps and TV shows at 30fps (60 interlaced), so
I'm not sure where the harm would be there either.
