If so, I'll check the new one out, and see if I can't send them back whichever one is worse. 

I know I'll never notice the dead pixel, but knowing I paid $800 for a panel that isn't perfect is giving me massive buyers remorse. I really need a pixel perfect panel. 

The one dead pixel would bother me so def. return. Backlight bleed on your first image is normal

Haha, so initially, Amazon actually refused to replace this monitor again for me. I had to call and contact an actual person  at Amazon today after my work shift, and she said this panel has gotten too many complaints of defects, so they're going to have to review it in their warehouse and make sure they are suitable for sale and not a bad batch, which basically means a bunch of derpy 17y olds are going to turn it on, load The Avengers for 30 seconds and declare them all fine for no reason. But anyways, she said that this takes about a week to 2 weeks, and after that, she'll send me another one. Until then, I can keep this one. 

 

So yea, basically if the third one is messed up too, I'll compaign to keep whichever one is best, send them back the worst, and they said they'd give me 20% of the cost back as a refund. Either that, or get 100% back and pick another monitor. 

 

Never new buying a panel would end up being 2 months of headache.

I'm in that exact same boat. You would figure that with the kind of money we spend on these monitors that we wouldn't have to worry about bl bleeding, dead pixels or dust. I'm leaning towards a Korean PLS or a 32" 60Hz LG LED HDTV. I know the DPI isn't as sharp as a 1440p monitor but I've seen this HDTV in action and not only did I not notice any input lag but the image looked great! Immense battles in BF3 look awesome. The HDTV is also direct lit so it has very little to no back light bleeding.

BTW, I pretty much had the exact same experience with Amazon after wanting a 2nd replacement VP2770.

Really?? Did they say they had to review it or something and make you wait a week? 

 

See, the heartbreaking thing is, now that I have the VP on an Ergotron MX, it's a great panel. MUCH faster than the Asus PB278Q. It's just as fast on "Ultra Fast" as the PB278Q was on "TraceFree 60" and overshoots next to none, except in games with purposely crazy colour contrasts like Starcraft. 

 

But like you say, for an $800 panel, I really hate the idea of a dead pixel(s)...and it doesn't help that retailers have no idea how the high tech industry works. I literally attempted to explain to the customer service rep that sometimes you just get bad units and they have to be replaced until you get a good unit, and it went over their heads completely.

Has anyone contacted Viewsonic customer service directly? What's thier position on the VP2770 monitors that exhibit enough bleed to show thorough black movie border or games, etc...?

If you like this monitor I'd play exchange with Viewsonic until they send one you like.

Well, the problem with dealing with Viewsonic is, at least in Canada, their pixel policy is 3 or more, so I wouldn't qualify anyway, but I'm sure they'd demand I send a monitor back before receiving a new one, and I'd have to pay each time. Amazon sends it first and has a postage paid option through our national mail agency.

Wow, I can't believe there's a zero dead subpixel warranty in Europe and then a 3 pixel warranty in NA.

They probably sell a load more in America, so naturally, their warranty is much worse.

They mentioned reviewing it and how the only option I had was a refund. They eventually sent out a replacement later that day even though I was told it wouldn't be possible.

I've been checking out the LG 27EA83V on Amazon. Brand new model it seems. I wonder what the difference is between the LG 27EA83R, LG 27EA83D and the LG 27EA83V. Hmmmmm.....
