quality but are not perfect. They pass inspection when rates of bad pixels are low.
Only one bad pixel is a low number, one that I would chalk up to vagaries of the market.
I once got an LCD that was defective & the picture starting going into terrible territory after just about three days. Boy, did I ever return that during the big box 30 day grace period. No arguments, etc. Problem Is, I assume they just sent it out the door with the next customer as they paid no attention to my starting to describe the horror story.
I was very surprised as it is a Panasonic LCD & the replacement has been perfect for 5 years now.
In general, be cautious to keep all cardboard boxes, plastic wrappings, plastic ties, etc. for potential return until you go past the point of being nervous about that.
I took delivery of a Sony KDL-46z4100 yesterday and found a single small spot on the lower right corner where a continuous white spot exists. It is noticable when it is black or dark there, but not when white or light colors are shown there.
It has been suggested this is a single pixel stuck on white.
I got it from J & R music which will allow me to return it if defective without additional shipping charges. My question is whether this is what manufacturers or retailors consider a defect, such that I should consider returning it? Is there a technical fix for such a thing? Or should I just not worry about it and chalk it up to the vagaries of an LCD purchase.
Thanks in advance for input.
