Says it's been shipped but have yet to receive a tracking number. Bought around 1:20 to 1:30 pm.

Aye, for the people reconsidering buying the dead pixels are not bad, you have to be right up against the monitor to see them. A spec of dust/dirt would look bigger.

The only way they'd be a deal breaker is if you have OCD just knowing they are there, or perhaps work as a graphic designer, but then these aren't the monitors your should be buying if that is your line of work.

These monitors are designed for gaming, I can guarantee you will not notice dead pixels while gaming, unless you have a whole bunch of them, or stuck pixels like Mrgamer81 seems to have frown.gif.
I second the person above gamer81, I'd return the monitor sounds like a bad panel.

I ordered 3 monitors, 1 perfect, 1 dead pixel, 1 with 3 dead pixel, and I wouldn't return any of them.
Catleaps were more of a gamble than these monitors smile.gif.

i am very OCD about thing like this, sure it´s hard to see them in every day use, but i know they are there and this monitor is not cheap, so i want one without dead pixels smile.gif

Yeah I have 3 dead pixels as well but they are all towards the outside of the screen. I can see it if I remember where it is and focus on finding it. Picture of two of the dead pixels below. I'll still be keeping the monitor and I'm still loving it. Now if I ordered from Amazon with their overnight shipping and return policy I'd consider exchanging it, but I have no interest in messing with the Acer store.

Ok, so I decided to power it off and rub it with a rubber stylus and a microfiber cloth really gently and when I powered it back on all the pixels were working and now I can't find any bad ones using the tests.

Glad to hear you got your pixels un-stuck. Let's hope they stay that way!
