It's almost like theres two great big thumb smudge marks on the inside of the screen... annoying as crap depending on the background colour.

I have two spots like that as well.

I only notice it at nighttime when on a completely black background and I actively search for them.

I can't be bothered to worry about it...it's probably not fixable.

Then you are good to go as I have a 60hz 1080p ASUS right next to my 96hz X-Star and both are on the same video card.

I couldn't get the stuck pixels to show up, but here's a video of the dead cluster. I contacted the seller about this now and I'll update on his response.

Well that meany dead pixels is clearly more than the maximum of 5 that are allowed even on the non-pixel perfect versions. So hopefully it is a short enough time that you have received the monitor that you can just get a free warranty replacement

I bought my CrossOver 27Q LED pixel perfect.

Some people say it's not worth it.

its really up to you if your willing to risk it.

my 2 monitors before had dead pixels and i HATED them.

the price of a regular wasnt much different then a perfect pixel so w/e right?

you can get one for 308 shipped to the US right now i think.

also since they are having this zero dead pixel service i cant help but think that the ones that have dead pixels they would sell as regulars...

Perfect pixel is a blunt statement that when you receive your monitor there will be no dead pixels. This is a complete load of nonesense as mainstream monitors cannot even guarantee no dead pixels. There has been plenty of times that my company will order dozens of monitors and a small portion of them will have dead pixels and will have to be sent in for a RMA. This demonstrates that a "guarantee" of no dead pixels is nonesense. Not to mention is says "dead" pixels which is too vague to count "stuck" pixels or "bright" pixels.

The only way this is valid in any way is IF with the particular seller you are going to states that their "perfect pixel" class warrants that if there is ANY dead/stuck/bright pixels they will RMA the monitor for free(meaning paid shipping back). This is certainly not the case as we have heard many people in the Qnix club have bad experiences with the perfect pixel term(scam). I would confirm this with the seller before even ordering.

Most of the time what i have seen is even with a perfect pixel term used if there is an actual dead pixel(a lot of the time they are stuck) the seller will try and give you a partial refund(which is a great conversation).

All in all this has been repeatedly confirmed to be a marketing term(scam). I would look more into what the sellers warranty period is and what the acceptable level of dead/stuck/bright pixels is which does apply even with perfect pixels. You want piece of mind buy an actual warranty (squaretrade) otherwise unless you contact the seller and specifically find out what perfect pixel entails or you are just tossing money into the fire.

SpartanF8 - good idea, copy+paste the answer for this question. Or point them to the FAQ - people need to learn to read 1st posts.
