Might have to take the panel apart and replace the blown LED with an identical component, that's assuming its the LED that's blown and not a more critical PCB / wiring issue. A replacement is your right, take it.

Yeah, I know man, but to be honest the rest of the panel is awesome. 120hz stable, great uniformity (well, apart from the blown LED), no backlight bleed. I would even pay for someone to repair it. None of these panels are perfect, but this one would be with this bulb sorted. Kind of don't want to give that up and gamble getting one with bad BLB that doesn't OC well.

agreed I would take a replacement and wait it out. If you damage the panel further or open it, it might give the seller the excuse of saying: you tampered with it

Hmmm I see where you're coming from; problem is that the LEDs might be in the panel casing So a repair might entail opening the panel assembly itself for possible repair. Maybe discuss your thoughts with the seller and see what he has to say? Maybe he knows something we don't.

Yeah, good idea - I'll check my options first.

I generally take everything those eBay sellers say with a truck-full of salt, though...

HAHAHA! Good one! Too bad you missed April Fools with that one.

Oh, if they don't catch something like that... consider what it means for "perfect pixel"/"ultimate perfect pixel". And there've been even worse defects they haven't caught...

There are defects. There are also tons of posts in this thread where pixel perfect has been just that.
