Couple dead pixels wouldn't bother me in the slightest. Two stuck red ones? Yeah, no.

And newegg where did that page even come from? I have xb270hu in the search and it doesn't come up.

This reminds me of when I used to use check4change to auto refresh and notify me on open box GPUs. I'm not going through that again. Guess I'll get one when I get one.

Edit: The product page doesnt even show up anymore.

Nope, I've been testing out games, even with 3-4 dead pixels, unless I'm looking at a bright solid color, it is nearly impossible to tell they are there unless your right up against the monitor. If it was a 30" monitor the dead pixels would be a bit of a pain, but on a 27" not too bad.
In a game with stuff going on and rarely ever a bright solid surface I really have to try to see the dead pixels, only time I noticed them is if I stare straight up at a perfectly blue sky and look for the pixels and since they are on my side of the monitor, I rarely am looking directly there anyway.

I missed 144hz for soo long due to my catleaps replacing my last 144hz monitor, Im super excited and a couple dead pixels on the sides won't bother me at all.

For example at my normal sitting distance, the blue on the borders of this site, conceal the dead pixels perfectly and I have really good eyesight.


Now if I had stuck pixels, that would suck, but those you can massage a bit and use a pixel flashing program and sometimes they get cured.


EDIT: and after playing some games, I think these monitors have a better picture quality than Catleaps imo... I had 3 glass catleaps and these monitors are just more pleasant and overall look better.
EDIT EDIT: Though after some dark games, catleaps might win out for really dark games/ dark movies, due these having a bit more glow in the lower right corner.

How noticeable is a dead pixel on one of these screens? If I can't notice them while playing a game, I won't bother returning.
