Forgive me if I repeat anything that has already been answered!

I've been bouncing back and forward between the ideas of getting the non perfect-pixel version. I've seen a fair few comments now saying that the perfect pixel option is essentially not worth it because you still aren't guaranteed to get a perfect panel, and shipping it back isn't worth it. It's kind of confusing as to why the option even exists. Anyone able to offer an opinion? :-)

Really, if you are dead on worry about dead pixels, and you don't mind spending the extra, get the Dead Pixel option.
Otherwise, don't get it if you okay with having a chance of getting a dead pixel, but the chances are lower now.

I have seen posts saying it is not worth to pay extra for perfect pixel, but I haven't seen any posts (from the horses mouth) of some one paying for the pixel-perfect service and getting a panel with dead or stuck pixels, also there is many posts of people ordering with the out perfect pixel service and getting perfect pixel panels (but not all).

 

I would say you have a very very good chance of getting a perfect-pixel monitor with out the perfect pixel service, but it is not guaranteed.

If you do pay for pixel perfect service then that is what you should get, but that does not cover light bleeding or back light imbalance/ yellowish hue.

 

Seen posts of people with a few dead pixel and have no problems with it, because they are so hard to see/find as the pixels are so small.

Thanks for the thoughts guys. Right now I'm thinking I'll go for the non perfect pixel option and try my luck. I've got one dead pixel on the monitor I'm currently using, and you're right about hardly noticing it. I guess I'm just a bit hesitant about ordering from overseas. I'll probably pull the trigger and get one tomorrow morning.

Haha true. I guess I'm just impatient, though the wise thing to do would be wait. Must resist temptation..

Anyone know where the 120Hz models are available?
post #4417 of 11297
I keep seeing people saying that the input lag on the multi's is extreme, is this actually true or are people being over pedantic? Is the input lag acctually horrendous or minor such as on a Dell U2711 where only people playing twitch shooters will be able to tell the difference?

The Achieva Shimians, which are pretty much the same as the Catleaps, supposedly are the OEM for Hazro, and TFT Central did a review on the Hazro HZ27WC & HZ27WA, with the HZ27WA being the one with multiple inputs.

On the review the multiple inputs HZ27WA was slightly better than the Dell U2711 with 26.3ms on average, while the dell one was recorded at 30ms average.
The DVI only input HZ27WC was on average about 9ms.

You can read the TFT Central review for both models on here:
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/hazro_hz27wa.htm

Take a look at the pics on the review and you will see the Hazro is identical to the Achieva Shimians.
