    We receive from time to time e-mails to has some information on dead pixels rules for LCD TVs and laptops monitors. Rules applied to these monitors are the same as LCD monitors. So you need to take a look at this mathematical rule and report to the monitor resolution.

    We don’t like that this rule applies to computer monitor and of course we don’t like that it also applies to other ones. We fell that it is urgent that it changes (this norm has been released five years ago…) .

    Asus, who has just entered the LCD market, has launched a very interesting initiative. First of all, the Aristo PM17TS monitor has a « zero dead pixel » warranty for three months after the purchase date. White, red, green and blue dead pixels are covered. Black dead pixels, not really disturbing and even not noticed by some of the users, are not however covered by this warranty. The monitor itself, discovered during the CeBit, isn’t really interesting. Just for you to know, it is a 17” 8 ms TN monitor. Its price: 309€.

    But the most interesting aspect of this “zero dead pixel warranty” is that it also applies to W1, V6 and M6 laptops since the end of April. The user has 30 days (and not three months this time) to report any bright dead pixel to after sale services. Second limit of this warranty: only one exchange will be accepted during the 30 days period.
