Unfortunately

you'll find that manufacturers will say that a screen has to have more than 3 dead pixels to be classed as defective - in fact I think it's as many as 6 or 7, although I haven't checked recently. You certainly wouldn't be able to claim a refund for a screen with a couple of duds.

In practice you'll be very unlucky of you get a screen with this many, and nine times out of ten there won't be any at all. Manufacturing techniques are improving all the time, and it's been a while since I saw a new TFT screen with any more than one dud pixel.
