Having sold off some crap, I have some money to buy my widescreen LCD monitor at last. As usual, the first place I check is eBay of course. I am only looking for NIB stuff, and the deals are pretty good for the 22". A friend of mine says that I should buy from Bestbuy or a place of the like, because I can supposedly open up the boxes and look for dead pixels. I can return the monitor if need be, with little hassle. I've never encountered dead pixels, so I don't know how prominent they are.
Is this actually a serious problem, and worth the extra cost from going to bestbuy?
