Try some windex before I think, solves my "dead" pixels or overly active ones.

(Meaning your screen is dirty)

Dude, most poeple won't take it back if it has less then 15 dead pixles, so be VERY glad you got one with such few errors.

My mom's office uses the 19" version of those and they are VERY nice. Don't go with another choice just because of a few dead pixles, you won't excape that.

If you are still worried about it, ship it to me, and I'll ah....see what I can do...

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.
best monitor there is:
