    Tell them you're worried and ask if you can test it out in-store for a while to check for problems...

    Get one. The forums tend to over-represent the problems. If you do get a dud, you can always take it back. There are numerous people with good ones (mine included). Don't let the polls that show high % with 1 freeze ever. the real "freeze" issue no where near as wide spread as that.

    Good luck getting a 2.8 in store. Lots of folks not having luck with that.

    Yep, good advice. BTW, that's also the ONLY way to avoid getting a stuck with bad pixels.

    ...would you buy a car without inspecting the paint?

    I think the 2.8 is a CTO only (not a store stock item - needs to be purchased online only)
