Samsung's zero dead pixel policy

Look, any time you buy something with an LCD screen in there's a good chance you'll have at least a couple of dead pixels. Most manufacturers won't even replace a display with dead pixels unless there are at least four or five of them (yeah, it's frustrating, though a couple of dead pixels is maybe not the biggest of deals since most of the time you probably won't even notice they're there—we can't even find the dead pixel on the laptop we're using right now), but Samsung is saying screw it and have announced a new zero tolerance policy for dead pixels. Beginning today anyone who buys an LCD monitor from them can get a free replacement if they find even one dead pixel on their display within six months of purchase. Doesn't apply to LCDs bought before today, and to be perfectly honest we're not sure whether it applies anywhere outside of South Korea or not. Either way, you have to hope that other manufacturers will follow suit.
