Dell 2001FP One Dead Pixel - What to do?

I took delivery of a Dell 2001FP and when I set it up, initially the
screen looked flawless. But after looking real hard, I found one dead
pixel. It is actually hard to spot and takes some effort to find it
even if you know where to look for it so I wouldn't say it sticks out
like a sore thumb or anything. Depending on the color around the dead
pixel, it is sometimes even invisible.

Nevertheless, as I paid $844 for it (bottom line price), it still
"bothers" me, especially as I heard many people say they have flawless
LCD monitors.

Any insight on what to do or how I should deal with this issue?


Thanks.

Thank your lucky stars that you have only one dead pixel on your
new monitor, that you have to look hard for to find, and that is
sometimes invisible?. Industry standards run from 3-5 dead
pixels allowed unless they are concentrated in one area.

Yes, pop a beer, take a chill pill and be glad you don't have two dead
pixels...yet...

You are lucky and it is within specification.

I have a Samsung LCD monitor for my desktop & it doesn't have a dead pixel -
it has one always stuck on.
That is in specification.
Toshiba is worse for dead pixel policy.

Just out of curiousity, does your 2001fp exhibit the backlight leakage in
the upper right hand corner of the screen? It's noticeable only when you
have a black background. I'm on my third monitor and they all exhibited this
characteristic, some worse than others.

Example: http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=1918&p=9 look at the Matrix
screen.

Even if you got Dell to replace your presumably new FP, the
replacement could develop one or more defective pixels. Pixel
defects are quite common, and as others have pointed out, flat
panels are generally NOT replaced under warranty unless/until
there are numerous defects.

Hopefully one day that will change, but for the time being, your
options are a) roll the dice with a FP or b) purchase a flat CRT.

The following page compares FPs and CRTs. I'd personally
give CRTs a distinct advantage in the bad pixel category, but
whatever...
