edit Stuck pixel help on BenQ XL2420T.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just got my BenQ. Dead pixel top left . I'm running this UndeadPixel 2.2 program now trying to get it to go away. Anyone have any tips? I like the monitor a lot just wish the dead pixel wasn't there.

So I'm reading that because it's a bright blue pixel it's probably stuck not dead? Will it eventually go away? Just ran JScreenFix for like 2 hours with no luck.

1: Colours will always look better on an IPS display, especially viewing angles.

2: A 660ti might have trouble with demanding titles like BF3 etc @ 1440p. That's a lot of pixels to shift. You will definately have to lower details in your games.

3: BenQ xl2420t or the new Asus VG278HE 144Hz actually the Asus is rather expensive.

If your an FPS gamer TN and higher refresh rates will always win over an IPS in terms of fluidity and responsiveness. A friend of mine has the BenQ and i must say it's a pleasure to use. Colours aren't brilliant by any means, but that's the comprimise you make when choosing a display that's aimed at gaming.

After a night of running JScreenFix it went away but after 15 mins it came back. Does this mean it's pretty unfixable?
