Even people that paid for "perfect pixel" still get imperfect monitors.
Why? Because these panels are A-.
If you want a perfect panel, dish out the cash for a more expensive one from a company that will take it back if it is imperfect. (27" 2560 x 1440 from Samsung. Fairly cheap, I believe $800. HP has one also, but it's got some high input lag and is around $700)
Most people get monitors that have no stuck pixels and no dead pixels.
Even if you do have a dead pixel, you'll only notice it on white backgrounds and searching hard for it at this resolution.
I'm not entirely sure if I want to buy one yet. I'm waiting to see if companies are going to follow through with Intel's push for very high-density PPI monitors. (Intel is trying to make 2560 x 1440 the standard for 13" screens)
That seems a little crazy, as the text on my 13.3 is small as it is, which displays 1600 x 900. And if they do that, VGA card makers are going to have to really push their cards and make them cheaper or they'll lose profits.
But we'll see what the release of Ivy brings, and whether I buy one or not.
I'm ready to push that buy button. The only thing, other than previously mentioned, that is stopping me is that I have a 6950 and they seem to have some trouble with the monitor.
