I wouldn't be able to tolerate ANY stuck pixels. I'm short sighted meaning a monitor is incredibly clear but something further out isn't. I can see the lightest smears on a screen, along with smaller-than-pixel-sized-fly-droppings-or-whatever-they-are ( nasty ) on others monitors, so a dead pixel is quite annoying.
However, not all pixels which appear dead, are dead... You can often massage the screen ( smudges, but if you use your fingernail you should be able to get away with no smudges
or another tool which can't scratch the screen ) where the pixel is to revive it.
I wouldn't be bothered if the pixels were at ( 0, 0 ), ( 0, h - 1 ), ( w - 1, 0 ) or ( w - 1, y - 1 ) but they'd be noticed - anywhere else on the screen and they become too apparent for me to consider the monitor useful. For what I do, a single pixel being off can mean not more than an annoyance for coding, or a larger problem when doing image editing - ie say the pixel is meant to be black, and I see it as black because of a dead pixel but it is actually green or white or some other color which can be seen on the final image - and I don't see it through all iterations - that is a huge problem...
I don't care if I spend $200 or more on a monitor, 0 pixels should be dead. Heck, even at $100, it should be fine if new ( otherwise I consider it DOA ). So many monitors now include a EULA which you must accept to use, according them them - so you can always return if it has the up to x dead-pixels mean the monitor is working properly clause, and tell them you don't agree with their EULA. You can even return software after it has been opened ( because you can only read the EULA for the software when you try to install it, sometimes only after it has been installed ) if you do not agree with the EULA.
The only times I find it acceptable are for thrift store finds ( I found a 47 inch 1080p LG tv which had burnt out LEDs and 1 which burned for $25... after repairing, I noticed 2 lines in the screen so I have to take it apart again to replace that ribbon cable - I didn't see the issue when it was apart so it could've just been moved during reassembly so it may not take much to fix ) and then I'd consider fixing and selling...

|mudbone9||My advice is to not buy anything Asus again. They tried to screw me on a X99 motherboard build I was doing in 2015. I have a 27" Asus monitor that I like but it does have one pixel that is black. Very annoying but other than that its been a good monitor. Its the VK278Q and I have had it at least since 2010.|

Yes I'm a perfectionist ....blessing and a curse. I NEVER had an issue with my old Alienware IPS from 2012. And I abused the crap out of that thing. I'm just debating going for their ultra wide now, which means more money.
But then that's going from 100-144fps at 1440p to whatever I'll go down to, with my rtx2080.
should'a gota used 1080ti for $500.

It updates, but you have to "reset" the sig in order for it to fetch the new info. Go into UserCP and Edit Signature, untick rig in sig box and save, tick it back and save again.
I'm very tempted to try that ultrawide Alienware, and like the pixel defect coverage Dell offers on Alienware and ultrasharp. Big selling point. Just apprehensive due to normal aspect content such as YouTube either having black bars or being skewed. I guess that's not a huge deal for the experience though.

My sig rig one has 4 in a block which is definitely annoying as fuuuu but I never notice it when it's actually in use.
The only time my rig gets used anymore is when I'm playing games, not using it for browsing the web, videos, or any work, lol. If I was using it for anything other than pure gaming, I would probably be driven mad, but doesn't bother me at all in games.
Spoke with ASUS rep and it's not enough to qualify for warranty replacement. A dozen though is absolutely covered, lol, that's NUTS

Don't know the ultrawides, they are often curved and out of my price range. There are some launched recently such as that AW but also even newer from LG that are I think better at least in reviews. Also LG announced another UW 38GL950G IPS 175Hz 24:10 3840x1600px, Q3-Q4, price probably insane. https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-38...gaming-monitor
The older UW had 100Hz only as "OC", the newer marketed as 100Hz or 120Hz native.
The new LGs are well reviewed:
As in you could often get a triple 27" IPS/VA 144Hz or one ultrawide...
Or get 31.5" 16:9 which is area wise comparable to 35" ultrawide and can be found even "cheap" now.
