I have 4 asus monitors, 2 dells, an older samsung and some acers. Price per performance the asus monitors are great. I am happy with mine.
I got 3 24s for surround and 2 of them had 1 bad pixel. And of course the one i set up as the center screen has the 1 bad pixel right in the middle.
Bad pixels are a litte frustration when you get a new screen but some times they are a fact of life. In reality i dont even see the bad pixel unless i look for it.
