In my continuing saga with the Quad, I originally purchased the NEWEST VERSION on amazon, which was the 2.72 version. I thought it would be the 2M disk based on the amazon description, but it was not. As can be seen in other threads I tried to work with this and update the community software - which worked. unfortunately while using it, it failed. It was a low voltage and the software seemed to be working, so I think it was just an early hardware failure (I had only had it 2 weeks). I returned it as defective. To try and not suffer all the 2.72 issues I ordered the older version on Amazon (which is $10 less).
Well, this one is also 2.72 with the 8M disk. The only difference is that it has a plastic case instead of aluminum. So it is the latest board (which I didn’t really want) with the a plastic case. Now, I really would not mind this, except…
This one seems to have a more noise on the line. Even when grounded and in all ranges. There seems to always be a ± 1 pixel “jitter”. I don’t remember the other unit having this. It happens with all the firmware I have tried. So, I am wondering if it is the plastic case? Is this normal? Did I just not notice previously? Is it a hardware problem? Do others see this kind of jitter?
