    Hello

    I'm looking to buy the ACD LED for my uMB.

    Anyone bought one recently, any dead pixels or issues?

    If it does have dead pixels can I return it I'm buying it online from the Apple Store

    Thanks,

    About 3'. Not that long, but there are mini-displayport extention cables available by now, so that should not be a problem. It don't bother me, as I use it with a MBP which is sitting in front of the screen with the lid closed when I am at home.

    Just placed the order, went for the bluetooth keyboard skipped the mighty mouse as it seems to be troublesome!

    The only item left is a suitable SSD.

    Thanks for your help

    On a side note will they swap it if there are any dead pixels?

    They did but very reluctantly. I doubt they would have done it a 3rd time for me. Cost way way too much money to have dead and stuck pixels.
