Default F***Samsung Monitors

I bought a Samsung SyncMaster 997DF 19 inch CRT last week at Best Buy and quickly realized a pixel was out--I know, one tiny pixel, but I picked up on it quickly, Im very...thorough--so I made the 45min. drive back to the store to exchange it and now the same thing has happened again, except now I see two pixels out. I think I'm gonna make the ride (again) and hopefully just get a complete refund. I'm laying down good money, so I should'nt have a faulty product out of the box (or a day or two after). However that'll mean I'll have no monitor. Any suggestions for a good monitor (one that will perform well for games). I'll never buy a Samsung monitor again, and I'd suggest it to no one. Screw You Samsung.

Get a CRT

Dead Pixels are really really common on LCD's and are unavoidable, not samsung's fault.

I have never had a problem with a Samsun monitor, have you checked around at the Samsung site to see if this is a common problem or if this is just your unbelievable luck?

DJ-CHRIS, I honestly wouldn't know how to take a picture of it and even if I did I suspect I'm lacking the proper equipment. The first monitor had just one dead, black speck. now this one has two--one black, the other kind of reddish-black, each but a mere speck, but theyre there.

I have that exact monitor and love it, and I have never heard to a dead pixel in a CRT.
