I'm personally going to buy from bigclothcraft maybe later tonight or tomorrow biggrin.gif

Thanks for the reply/info,

It seems that green-sum and bigclothcraft have similar pixel checking services. They check to see if there are <5 dead pixels, unless you purchase their perfect pixel service that checks for any dead pixels. But, I may do the same and purchase from bigclothcraft.

Is it worth it to get the zero dead pixel monitors?

EDIT: Disregard, I read a few posts back about this question.

A lot of people here don't think so. A lot of people have flawless monitors or little flaws that aren't noticeable at all. And some may still have flaws even with the perfect pixel guarantee. Their standards in Korea aren't the same as here.

That's a toss up. I personally would prefer the peace of mind knowing that there is zero pixels on my monitor, but if it's dead in the "right" spots, you might not even notice them. Several posts that I have read from owners of Catleap with dead pixels noted that they barely notice them due to the large resolution and pixel placement -- iirc those who didn't mind that they had some dead pixels, had dead pixels in the corners of the monitor. I would imagine that it would unacceptable (and annoying) if you had dead pixels at the center of your monitor.

What's the price difference anyway? If you can take the extra cost, might as well go for it if you plan on keeping the monitor for a long time. And, if I decided to go with Catleap (still under consideration) I will definitely go for the perfect pixel option.

There is no pixel perfect standard. It is a waist. some people who had pixels in the middle did get a bit of a refund for it being annoying. But the majority have had no issues with pixels.

Just ordered one of these from Bigclothcraft, so excited! Also ordered a power cable for the power brick, and a new desk mount:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=5970&seq=1&format=2

Will keep this thread updated on my status if anyone cares to listen smile.gif After I take off the flimsy stand it comes with, I'm going to cut the pole on the new desk mount a little shorter so it doesn't show over the top of the monitor as displayed in this picture:
448

I'll explain how I do it with pictures once I receive all of the shipments. Hope it'll help someone looking into getting that desk mount smile.gif

I wouldn't go for it, as other's have said, they ordered the pixel perfect ones and still have the same results as the people without the pixel perfect.
Everyone has been fine with their monitors without it, so I don't think its worth it to get the pixel perfect option.

Help needed: Someone with a 2B catleap that has two or more AMD 79xx series cards to test crossfire refresh rates over 85 Hz (ToastyX got 120 Hz on AMD card's working on single GPU, need help testing crossfire).
