It's unlikely that you'll get dead pixels, as most people getting non pixel perfect are reporting they they have no dead pixels. I would suggest buying from sellers that don't open the box such as dream-seller to check the monitor's condition, as those sellers would probably keep the ones with no dead pixels for their pixel perfect versions, and give you one with a few stuck/dead pixels, unless you pay more for pixel perfect. Also, I have a question. In dream seller's description, it says "low blue light". Does this affect colour vibrancy in anyway?
