Yes. I've yet to see a display unit with the issue.

So it must be possible to deliver zero defects. Here's how to get yours. Make it a condition of the sale.

With Sony's ROOTKIT debacle, why buy from them?

Good Question

I bought the new Santana CD; discovered, the hard way, that it has SunnComm Media Max software. Really burned me. I have uninstalled it, and several of my family members have sworn off playing CD's in their PC's (one of the primary times when I play music). I'd like to say I won't buy Sony CD's again; problem is, they own so many labels, it's hard to keep track! (I did decide not to buy the new Neil Diamond CD, thanks to the fact it's a Sony label.) Bad, bad business model, in my mind. They're annoying the few people who are still getting music legimately!

The MEDIAMAX exploit.

Sadly, both MEDIAMAX and the patch appear to be flawed as well.

The poison caused by the rootkit

I've been so torqued over Sony/SonyBMG's inept behaviour over the rootkit debacle that I've more or less sworn off Sony products as a whole. I can't even bring myself to pick up my PSP these days, or go to any Sony-produced or distributed movies. The ONLY breakdown I allowed myself since the proverbial hitting of the fan was the recent purchase of the non-rootkit version of Neil Diamonds '12 Songs' CD, and even then it was only bought because of the constant badgering by my wife, who's a crazed Neil Diamond fan, otherwise that disc too would've been a no-sale.

I know full well that I'm only one consumer, but with us being in the market for a new larger format TV monitor, as well as our recent and intentional purchases of non-Sony digicams and miscellaneous audio gear, I at least have the personal satisfaction of not allowing Sony to get any of my money from this point forward until I feel satisfied that their idiotic anti-consumer mentality finally gets the heave.

Just to let you know that you have someone on your side. This household will never buy a Sony product again. There are many good, in many cases much better, alternatives out there.

No- but issue will always remain
by sonymaster101 / November 7, 2006 6:59 AM PST

I have 3 dead pixels in my psp. I've had it for 6 months, and I hardly notice them now. The dead pixel issue with the psp is just something people will have to accept. There is always a risk of dead pixels in any LCD device. For instance, there was a dead pixel on my gameboy advance SP.
