Yes another pixel thread because it has got me so creeped out. How obvious are dead pixels because my family has two lcd displays and two laptops and as far as I know none have dead pixels. Friends across the street have an imac g5 no dead pixels. Friends down the street have two imac g4s and two ibooks and no dead pixels, other friends down the street have an lcd monitor and no dead pixels as far as I know I have never seen a dead pixel. Or have I and they are just very hard to spot and not at all obvious. *note when playing battlefield two and I get shot end up looking at a blue sky sometimes I see a black dot but that is the only thing ive seen that seems like a dead pixel* Im just wondering this because I have read posts where people talk about finding a couple of computers in a row that have dead pixels and it seems unlikely with all the lcd screens I have seen not a single one has a dead pixel. edit**I have just been told by my dad that you can ocassionally bring a dead pixel back to life by gently rubbing it with a soft cloth. any one herd of this?
