I plan to buy a 28" widescreen soon but while surfing around the monitor sites I saw something about "A failure rate of one or two bright pixels being the accepted industry norm"
Does that mean if we buy a monitor and are unlucky enough to find its got one or two annoying bright pixels, we can't get our money back?

Yes, if you want to be sure of a repair or replacement in warranty for pixel faults, you need to establish the pixel policy of the manufacturer. It can also vary between models and screen sizes. Certain models may have a zero pixel policy, other models from the same manufacturer might not. It could also vary from country to country, with consumer legislation.

Thanx, i'll look into this further by asking around monitor manufacturers and shops and the consumer laws; it seems to me that even one bright pixel spells "faulty" and we're therefore entitled to refund/replacement (at least in Britain) under the 'Faulty Goods Act' of parliament.
