Can someone explain to me why there is a problem with dead pixels for PC TFT screens and not for laptop TFT screens?, at least i've never heard of a problem with dead pixels and laptops. Is it something to do with the technologies they use?
I'm looking to buy a new PC and a flatscreen but if this dead pixel thing is going to be such a problem (I do a lot of graphics work) maybe I should get a laptop.
When I went shopping for a tft in Comet I got a verbal assurance from the manager that if the monitor had even one dead pixel then it would be replaced or a refund given, this guarantee was for three months. How much faith can you put in verbal guarantees ? I dont know. I bought a display model (Acer AL712 17") with a 10% discount the only thing missing was the box, at least when you buy a display model you can be absolutely sure that there are no dead pixels.
Remember that on the whole laptop displays are smaller than the unit you use at home so have a smaller number of pixels. There is still the possibilty that they can have pixel failure. I work for a computer company and I say that in the last 18 months I have not seen one TFT that has had a pixel failure.
