Kindle NT partial refresh - better over time?

So when I first got my Kindle NT I left the settings for screen refresh to the default, that is, partial refresh of the screen where it only "flashes black" every 6th page turn. I was a bit put off by the "dirty screen" caused by some ghosting, so I set the screen refresh to flash back on each page turn.

It was like that for almost 2 months, I've read quite a few books with that setting turned on, not sure how many page turns. Anyway, this morning I decided to go back and give the "partial refresh" setting a try again. Surprise, surprise I don't notice the ghosting or dirty screen much at all now. It's actually quite readable even after the 5th page turn (before the black flash).

I'm wondering if the screen somehow improves over time with the constant "cleaning" of the screen from the all-black flash? I know there were other threads talking about how eventually the electronic ink doesn't "stick" as much to the screen which eliminated ghosting that some people saw on their screens when first taken out of the box.

Am I crazy?

Heh. Same thing happened to me. I was standing outside, waiting for my lift to work, and reading...and I noticed my first bit of ghosting. Page turning took longer than usual, it seemed.

Yep I get sluggishness too on the K3 when it happening. The first time it happen over a year ago I thought it was the battery. lol Now I had it for so long I know it's the temperature that causes it.
