What do you think ? Should I keep waiting for an unknown amount of time or get a non-PP version ? Would dead pixels be really visible on a display of this size ?
I was considering the PP UHD490, but I've read on the dedicated topic that it has no Passive 3D layer, so the 550 is my only option now
Believe me, I was bent on buying this monitor. At one point, I even started emailing ebay stores, offering them more money for perfect pixel and crate shipping.
Truth is, we were both too late. The time to buy this was when greensum was still selling perfect pixel and shipping crates. I was so determined to make the 4K jump, I kept bumping up my budget, I have doubled it at one point and I still ended up buying a TV. When a ebay store can't meet your demands even after you offer them the best possible incentive (more $$$) it's time to move on, if you ask me.
You are free to do as you please of course but I think you are better off giving up on these. Large monitors are just too much of a niche market to expect new supply to constantly refresh the market.
If you want a perfect pixel one, I'm pretty sure you will have to wait for the next model they release. If you end up waiting for that, make sure you jump on it early and don't buy unless it's perfect pixel and crate shipping.
Good luck to you! Maybe I used up all the bad luck there was with these monitors so it may work out for you.
