@Freeze311: I tend to think it is not worth buying pixel perfect, since people who bought it still had pixel errors.
Also TA_Planet, the seller on ebay did checked some screens for free.

If you pay for pixel perfect and it isnt they would have to give u free replacement or full refund or you could file a dispute with ebay for lying about product.

Is it worth the hassle? Here's my take on pixel perfect;

It isn't worth it. What's stopping them from selling "pixel perfect" monitors and taking the risk on sending out a bad one? If the monitors are overall at a good place as far as stuck pixels* go, then they have a reasonable chance that they've charged an extra $50 without doing anything; free money. From the polls, this seems to be the case.

We have also had multiple reports of people getting perfect pixel displays with stuck pixels. What do you do as a buyer if you're in this boat? Refund it? Return it? Either way, you have to ship it back (and pay for shipping!) and you're out of a monitor for some time, and the cost of shipping. What if they offer to just refund the difference of the pixel perfect garuntee? Well, it's a scam in that case, since if you bought the normal version, you might have gotten a perfect version for $325, whereas you'd pay $325 only if you got a monitor with stuck pixels. Thus, with pixel perfect, you garuntee that you pay $50 for perfect pixels, whereas without it, you get a (high) chance of getting a perfect pixel monitor without paying for it.

Thirdly, perfect pixel garuntee does not mean free from pixel defects. It means when they checked it, it was free from visible stuck pixels; dead pixels or other pixels defects are not covered. The perfect pixel garuntee only covers a small portion of defects.

Finally, whether or not you get a perfect pixel garuntee panel or not, do remember you're still getting an A- panel. Instead of a pixel defect, they might have something else that renders them unsuitable for A/A+ rating.

Thinking about pulling the trigger on a QH270-IPSMS. None of the listings on eBay currently mention a free 110V adapter. Is this still needed, or are people once again getting 110-240 adapters with their monitors? It's kind of annoying - the same seller offers free adapters with the Lite models, but not the IPSMS (for example).

I ordered a pixel perfect Catleap. Just got it, it is near perfect. No bad pixels, almost no back light bleed at all. Only real flaw is the stand, and that is fixable.
