    I am ordering a 30" ACD but can't decide where to buy it. Internet: cheaper, no sales tax but returning it would be a hassle if dead pixels found.

    Local stores: more expensive (because of sales tax), but I can check the dead pixels in the store and exchange it right away if found.

    Is 30"ACD QC good? Do I have to worry about getting dead pixels if I order it online?

    Thanks.

    You would have the same chance of getting a dead pixel(s) if you order online rather than at a Store.

    Why would it be easier to exchange it in a store?

    They can still stand behind their same "8 dead pixels minimum" legalese.

    Mac Mall, Amazon.com etc etc, use Pricegrabber to find it.

    Anyway, I just came back from the local store (non-Apple) with ACD 30". I didn't want to take the risk. This thing is sure heavy boy! I carried it with me to take subway.

    Nah, the public transportation in the city where I live is pretty good, no car is needed. I was a PC guy once and my transition to Mac has just completed recently. So glad no more Windows in my life.

    Now where can I find a hi-res wallpaper?

    Try InterfaceLIFT or Mandolux for some jaw-droppingly huge and beautiful wallpaper :cool:
