Being that I own and use one of these I have not
noticed this stuttering you mention - I would take a you-tube - but its pointless as that would introduce stuttering while decoding.
All I can honestly say is that the is no stuttering in my humble opinion, no matter what 50hz machine I plumb up, nor what display device I use - there is none of this stuttering you mention - while I appreciate that some older devices have this fault (as well as some newer ones) this doesn't seem apparent with this adapter.
I have played superfrog for a fair few levels... theres no tearing, not stuttering or jerking of any kind. I have also laid down some law with Project X and Alien Breed TA - again no tearing, no jerking or stuttering - it was fast smooth gameplay.
As I have mentioned before there are only two and half faults with the device
1. on 50hz input I have to adjust the luminosity as its dark.
2. on the LCD screen the output is a little washed.
2.5 on AGA machines, I have notices a subtle colour banding.
and thats it... for the paltry sum of £25 its damn awesome adapter.
