Good luck!

Well i initiated the exchange on amazon. However they emailed me saying that they are going to refund me instead of an exchange because the replacement may have the same problems. They did say this though:

While we investigate the problems you experienced, the ViewSonic VP2770-LED 27-Inch IPS LED Monitor, WQHD 2560x1440, HDMI, DVI-D, DisplayPort, USB Hub will be unavailable for purchase from Amazon.com. However, you may be able to purchase it from another seller on our website. If you see this item offered by Amazon.com again in the future, you'll know we've fixed the problem

So i guess i will be using my tv for a monitor until they get this figured out or just go with a different brand, but i really want to stay with the Viewsonic.

You can just get it somewhere else, but that is crazy. Hopefully they don't do the same thing to me. I just want a new one.

Most monitors have dead or stuck pixels and dirt/dust stuck under the matte/glossy coatings, regardless of how much you pay. The question is, will you go hunting for them?

People should be more concerned about back-light bleeding, color uniformity, build quality and burn-in (AH-IPS exclusive issue).

Yes i could, but amazon has the lowest price and they have the most hassle free return/exchange policy. So i think ill just wait it out.

I don't know about you, but I can't stand dead pixels. Once I've spotted one it draws my attention pretty much any time I'm using the screen, which can be pretty distracting when you're working in PS for hours on end (I learned that the hard way with my old U2711 frown.gif ).

Now I always hunt down panel imperfections while the return window is still open. And my 970D is flawless as a result biggrin.gif

My thoughts exactly, my eyes seem to gravitate towards any imperfections so dead pixels and what not would drive me crazy.

Got my VP2770 today, working on a first impressions video...I love the birds feet (stand)! The base on my S27A850D would always get in the way of my keyboard, but the birds feet are angled outwards=no more problems. No obvious dead/stuck pixels on mine.
