LCD Monitor dead pixels, limit.

Example, Newegg says 8 before replacement. Some break it down to X of white, Y of dark.

Samsung has just announced that for any Samsung LCD monitor purchased in 2005 a "no dead pixels" policy. One dead and you get a new monitor. Bought one for Xmas 2004 and you're stuck with up to 10 dead pixels and no help.

I'm watching for a 19 incher with as good a deal as the present 17 inch 710N's.

I have a 15 inch Mag with one pixel failed white. It sticks out like a sore thumb.

Just checked with Samsung

This report is NOT true. They have implemented it in Korea, but have not set a date to implement it in the U.S.A, and MAY NOT implement it in U.S.A.

I'm leaving this thread, Ray

rather than remove it as you requested because the information is valid enough to keep it here for others to know about. If you could find the original information and got the wrong conclusion about it, others will, too, so you did a good service by now posting what Samsung had to say about that report.

Much appreciated.
