I think they fix them and sell them again. Some of the cheaper options (~$325) come with disclaimers that it may have up to 5 dead pixels and some light bleed. I guess it maybe the ones that have been refurbished. Some of the sellers say they get them directly from the manufacturer.
I'm going to wait a bit seeing that the ones I want have been sold for a bit less only a few days ago. So there's a chance they may do another sale.
My biggest fear is dead pixels and excessive light bleed. Also, the cost is really hard to swallow considering my little Asus 22'ers have really nice colors (50m ddc vs 1m for the 1440). But I would definitely like something bigger since I'm running Portrait. Thanks
