These defects could be so mild that the average joe would not notice them to severe. An example of a defect would be sever banding, dark blotches, uneven color, ect. If you are extremely picky and notice any little detail, then the korean monitors are not for you. If you don't notice anything, then my advise is don't go looking for it. I don't understand why people go through the trouble of looking for dead/stick pixels. If you don't notice it during normal use, then you most likely will never notice it. On the other hand, if you go out of the way to find a defect, you will notice it constantly. Remember, ignorance is bliss thumb.gif.

I understand and I'm sensitive about issues on display, but at the same time I want IPS/PLS and 120 Hz which means Korean monitors are the only option.

It varies buyer to buyer honestly, just make sure to read their policies. These buyers guarantee zero dead pixels http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-Glossy-Perfect-Pixel-27-2560x1440-PC-Monitor-/130922075493?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1e7b905565 , http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-Matte-Perfect-Pixel-27-2560x1440-PC-Monitor-/111088789065?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item19dd686649 , but the price tag matches. Where as a buyer like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-27-Slim-Qnix-QX2710-Evolution-II-LED-PLS-2560x1440-QHD-Monitor-/321237632896?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4acb414780 states ""Perfect Pixel] 27" Matte Qnix QX2710 LED Monitor This monitor may have up to 1 x Dead pixel."" . Truthfully its alot about what you want to pay and the product you are willing to accept. I consider myself very unlucky and took my chances anyway with buying a non perfect pixel model and mine happens to be pixel perfect. Honestly when it comes down to it you're talking about millions of pixels and one or two isnt a huge deal. Like GiveMeHope said, these are not A+ panel, they are samsung and apple cinema display rejects, this doesent mean they are not an incredible value and completely worth your time/money. But if you are in the business of perfection, these probably arent the monitors for you.

Pixel perfect is basically a scam. Most "pixel perfect" listings still allow a certain number of dead pixels. So it is pretty bogus and the ones that really offer 0 charge $50-100 more.

I had bought a "pixel perfect" from accessorieswhole originally and it had a dead pixel I made them pay for return shipping since it wasn't what I paid for. The amount of effort I had to expend to make that happen was pretty ridiculous.

It really aggravated me when they kept saying it's dust clean it with a cloth..... lol

Agreed, id say the majority of these (90% or more) are indeed perfect pixel. I have had three of these korean monitors over the last couple years, and all had no dead or stuck pixels even though I bought the "non perfect pixel" ones.

Heh... you are doing better than me I've had three koreans now including the one i'm keeping long term now.


Two of them showed up pixel perfect, atleast I think they did..... All developed atleast 1-2 dead pixels eventually.

This one actually has a "bright pixel" You cannot see it even on dark backgrounds unless you really try and are sitting really close, so I don't really give a crap.

Also both qnix I have had only oc to 110hz even trying different wires, but 110hz is perfectly fine.

The glow/backlight bleed (not sure which one my monitor has) is much much more annoying.

Interestingly, the qnix I have went all the way to 130hz without any problems. I didnt want to go further in fear of damaging the PCB. I keep it at 120hz and its been on since the day I got it without a hiccup.

Yeah it could even be my video cards, although I have tried with both my 7950's as the one connected to the qnix still can only do like 117 or something max so I just keep it at 110.
