    so i have a small tiny black pixel almost on the middle of the screen it doesnt glow when u play games u wont notice at all but when u browse websites u can see it but very tiny it looks like a tiny dust on a screen. the question is can you live with it? I dont feel like returning my 32 inch sony bravia to best buy.

    I'd return it, you never know how bad it'll be in a few months or whenever warranty runs out!

    Def return it. I don't know how you could ever stand it. It'd bug me so much I might just smash the screen in rage. Stuff like that REALLY bothers me.

    I couldn't live with this. Small things like this annoy me more than when something doesn't work all together.

    Yes I can, my current monitor has quite a few dead/stuck pixels, they aren't noticeable unless I'm looking for them though, it doesn't bother me.

    Most manufacturers will not RMA your monitor for one dead pixel. It's common for some manufacturers to even require 3 or more before accepting an RMA, IIRC.

    lehtv is 100% correct, I'd try to return it if you can under warranty but be prepared for a refusal.

    Or look up the guides to creating enough dead pixels. People do it...

    Look like im lucky, i have never have the case on the 2 TV and 4 Samsung monitors i have got. ( yes all Samsung, some don't like, i have allways find the good monitor who was fit my budget and expectations, not all are good, but if you search, you find allways a pearl in their series ).

    But it's clear, the day i have one with a dead pixel, i RMA it .

    I can live with it specially if it's already out of warranty.

    Me too. I have one now that is out. But the warranty is off, so I don't care. On 1680x1050 that's my resolution I can't seem to notice it. :)

    Return it, dead pixels multiply throughout time. One leads to two, leads to 4 and etc.

    If it's in say a corner, I think I could live with it. Yes my ass would be sore, but I could live with it. But anywhere further away from the sides than say 1cm and I'd eat the display.
