Hi All After reading many threads over these forums it dawns on me that there is no such thing as a make of monitors that does not have its issues. Dead pixels and I do not mean just the odd one here or there but patches of the horrid things, colour tint issues, back light bleed, dust inside etc etc etc. I have had and iMac with screen issues that went back for a replacement, my 24inch ACD when it was not a year old had to go back for dirt inside the panel itself not under the glass. Now the dirt has returned in the replacement and now it has a big patch of dead pixels along the top looking like something has taken a bite out of the menu bar. I am beginning to think that unless you are willing to spend in excess of £1000 UK pounds then you have to accept that you may not get the nice problem free monitor that you would like. Thoughts ?
