It doesn't work like that.
The reality is that the quality varies too much. To some other industries we wouldn't be so forgiving. I was voting with my wallet and am sticking with the little mount. I wouldn't mind paying triple for such a small mount that is accurate 100% of the time. This one isn't and we shouldn't be playing it down by managing our expectations.
It's not that the mount isn't for some of us. It's exactly what some of us need. Small, light-weight go-to alt az mount. Is it really too much to expect it to be accurate for visual?
Based on your own postings here it is clearly not the mount for you. You can't get what you want from it over multiple samples. And by your own statement above the quality varies too much.
There is no such thing as 100% of the time. And the whole playing it down/managing expectations is a canard. You want close to but not at 100% accuracy? Buy the forthcoming Astro Physics Mach2 with Renishaw encoders.
Bottom line: By your own statements and complaints here it is not working for you. So why are you here still complaining about the mount? Why don't you get something else that works for you? Maybe a used Takahashi PM-1 if you can find one. That may do it for you. It's more than that magic 3x the cost 100% perfection level you seem to be demanding of the AZ-GTi and it is an EQ mount but it will be a higher caliber QA and manufacturing level at a similar weight and compactness...
