Perfect Pixel = 5 + Dead Pixels :(

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well I listened to TekSyndicate's forum and Tom's Hardware and I feel stupid. They recommended the perfect pixel model. Now I have so many dead pixels. It sucks. They are about 1mm big too. It looks bad. Since I bought from eBay seller "dream_seller" I can't return.

What was the point of even paying for Perfect Pixel?

Yeah. I guess I'll open a ebay case. Shipping is going to be expensive though.

It is common knowledge in main korean monitor forums that Perfect pixel is a scam. Not to make things worse but PP also doesn't cover dark, stuck, and bright pixels.

They do not check these screens period. I have gone through many of these threads and ALL sellers have good and bad stories. Sorry you got lured man.

So I would've been better off getting the non pixel perfect version? That version would ironically not have issues with dead pixels? I am so confused.

When I ran the test on this site: http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php . I counted 12 dead pixels, that are black. Nothing wrong on black page though which is odd.

Umm no that is not what i said at all. PP is a marketing scam. Whether you buy PP or not makes no difference. When you buy these monitors it is a bit of a lottery. They could always have a chance of being less than "perfect". Anyone who does in depth research into these monitors knows this as an accepted risk.

Not sure how you got the idea you did from my post confused.gif

I ordered one Thursday and read each ebay sellers policy on dead pixels. I found 'dream-seller' whom you purchased it from as follows

Pixel Policy
Quote:
Please note that, for [Perfect pixel] monitor, there may be 0-2 monitor defective pixels and light backlight bleeding and there may be 3-5 defective pixels and backlight bleeing on standard monitors

Return policy is also 14 days, so you can have at least 2 dead pixels.


I ordered mine from ebay seller "storewithstory" who also seem to go by the name bcckorea as my order details was sent from that email address.

Pixel Policy
Quote:
In our rule, this monitor is perfect - pixel monitor, but up to 1pcs x black dot pixel, this is regarded as normal. This monitor do not have any bright pixel


So I can have 1 dead pixel and cannot dispute it with the seller, these are listed as $319 but with some offers sent got it down to $305 so in all it cost me £207.41 (not the best paypal conversion rate) + £17.37 DHL Duty charge = £224.78.

So as Spartan said it's bit of a lottery, so if you have more than 2 dead pixels it seems as though ebay will most likely side with you if you are within your 14 day period. Only downside would be shipping it back as they do not state covering shipping costs.

I'm fine risking it considering the alternative would be £400+ and the only reason I ordered it was so the GTX780 I ordered would be pointless on my current 20" Samsung 205BW screens, those cost me £210 each when new years back so this 27" 1440p screen worth the risk.

Hope it all works out for you.
