People say they are known for dead pixels.

I've had my Sceptre for several months now, and not a single problem or dead pixel. I must be lucky. I think they're also known for, their DVI port dying after several month's use.

You get what you pay for...IMO, they have great specs for the money, but it's not of top quality. I wish I went for a Samsung, but it was the money.

i have the x22-wg gamer and its looks great but i did unfortunately get one with the DVI problem. First the DVI port died so i decided to buy an hdmi cable and that worked great for a while and then the HDMI port died so i guess its time to RMA, im just too lazy so ive been using crappy VGA.
