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.
