Huh? There used to be a rule
among certain vendors decades ago regarding monitors with as many as 7 "dead" pixels to be considered "ok", but I haven't seen anyone that bold in a longggggg time.
Further, people return for that all the time. At least anyone I've heard of.
I think by law they can sell you an LCD with like 3 or even 5 stuck pixels.
Seriously? There is no law governing stuck pixels.
Within your return policy, you can return for whatever reason you want. This assumes that you didn't damage the set in any way and have all of the originally included accessories. Sorry, this also assumes you purchased the set at Best Buy/Magnolia. Other retailers may have different policies.
Personally, I would probably exchange it. In the end though, a single stuck pixel is acceptable to many people. Whatever you do, make sure you are 100% happy with your purchase.
ABSOLUTELY. Especially for a TV this expensive, but for any TV. But I would state this differently and in two ways:
- Stuck pixels are something that is unacceptable to almost everyone
- Stuck pixels are something that many people are too afraid to return a set for
People view returning things as a form of confrontation that irks them.
That all said, a stuck pixel can be enormously annoying and a pixel is just not small enough to not draw your attention immediately to it.
All TV manufacturers do is advertise "stunning" this, and "astounding" that. The box does not say "almost wonderful picture".
