    I’m thinking of picking up the new Dell 2407 but I’ve never purchased a TFT monitor before and am in fear of dead/lazy pixels!

    Is it just chance when buying from an online vender, can you pay more for a guarantee or perhaps return it?

    Some advice would really be appreciated as it’s a lot of money at hand…

    Some sites do a check for £20 I think. Mine has 1 but I only notice it if I actually try to find it.

    Remember the "distance and selling regulations guys". You can return any product purchased via mail order (includes online sales) within a week without having to give a reason. This assumes you return the goods as you received them & that it's not software.

    BTW never purchase a monitor from somewhere that gives you a choice to pay extra for no dead pixels if you are not paying the extra. You are so much more likely to get a cast off one.
