[quote=Dark Rain]Dead/stuck pixels are the nature of LCD technology. Why are people complaining about this? Sure, if you had a whole row or cluster of them then that wouldn't be normal. I wouldn't worry about a few stray ones though.
I understand what you're saying: perfection is an illusion. Yes. I know that one glowing green pixel is there. As I was watching the tv last night, I kept looking for it. Sometimes I could find it, but usually I could not. I found myself looking for the green pixel rather than watching the program. OK, that tells me maybe it's not such a big deal. But then a program with a mostly black/dark background comes on, and there it is. Also, because of the way my tv sits on the stand, I'm actually watching it from just below center. When I stand up, the glowing green pixel is even brighter.
I spent 2 large on this thing (incl. the 4-yr warantee) and I want a perfect set to start with.
I call ABT this morning and they're delivering set #3 tomorrow no questions asked.
And if #3 has the blue halo or the pink bottom, back it goes. It's no skin off my back to make them keep delivering me another one until I get one that works. Thank god I didn't buy this on-line or at some crappy retailer. ABT (who's salesmen I rather dislike due to their pushiness), have the absolult best and most lenient return/exchange policy.
