    Considering there are over 5 million sub pixels on a modern monitor it's not suprising that they will break occasionally, get over it.

    Good photo'!

    With the issue of dead pixels and backlight bleed even on the newest LCDs, to my mind, if some manufacturer came along now with good quality (i.e. Trinitron/Diamondtron tube) 20" and 24" CRT's at competetive prices, they'd make a killing.

    When's that next technology, where each TFT equivalent is basically a mini cathode emitter, meant to be coming?

    Also, with regards backlight issues, why can't they build a backlight plate that is a white led for each TFT, build it into the TFT array so that each LED is individually controllable - that way you wouldn't need the global lighting that is currently used...

    I'm intrigued with the photo. What background colour would one have on to take a macro like this? :)

    Yea it was white... you can only see it on light backgrounds like yellow and white.
