Default Is this a good deal on a 19" Samsung LCD?

http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...008&cid=MT.899

$369 Canadian.
Is this a good deal? And is this monitor any good? I havent found many reviews on the internet on this one.

Would you recommend it?

Sounds great to me, all I know is that it takes more Canadian to equal US dollars so it sounds like it would be around $280. Great deal.

i phoned the store and they told me that they will only exchange it if there are more than 7 dead pixels. Are dead pixels noticable??? Even one sounds bad to me.

Yes, they will just show up as a tiny black dot on the screen, I believe.

what would you think the chances are of having a dead pixel? Is it worth it to buy it and end up with 6 dead pixels?

Not very high. Some monitors can be faulty though, just like any piece of computer hardware,

i see. Say there were 6 dead pixels and they were scattered in across the monitor. That would suck, wouldnt it?
Either way, I like this deal, but id rather get it from an authorized dealer because they have money back guarantees. However, would any of you recommend taking the risk, albiet a small one?

Only buy that monitor if you dont play video games. It wont play video games well. If you need other LCD recommendations let me know. The pixel thing is always taking a chance, i got lucky, none.
