wee! flame wars. Sit back and watch the fireworks. and to think that not more than 48 hours ago, I was the subject of one.
Just for the sake of argument, isn't it statistically probable that almost 95% of all lcds have a flaw of one kind or another. Wouldn't it then be probable that almost all screens could have at least one stuck/dead/damaged/etc pixel? Assuming this is true (A.S.S.U.M.E: assuming makes an ass of you and me), wouldn't it be possible that the majority of "flawless" lcds have already been distributed, and for the momement all that remain are "flawed" lcds? Now, this doesn't take into account the sheer number of lcds being manufactured at this very moment, the numbers and conditions of those still in inventory, the various distributors and manufacturing locations manay of whom have varying standards and proceedures. So, is it unreasonable, no; probable, maybe; for certain, no. Do I really care, no. As long as my screen has fewer than 5 dead/stuck pixels, I will consider myself lucky. Given my eyesight, it will probably be more than 6 months before I notice anything. My samsung crt has a dead pixel (dead spot exactly 1 pixel in size) that only shows up on pure white backgrounds that I didn't even notice for over a year and a half. I don't care how much I paid for a notebook, whether it be $800 or $5000, if manufacturing defects are a normal occurance, as long as it doesn't hinder the use of the machine, then I will have to live with the certainty that some part of my notebook will have a flaw or imperfection of some kind.
Please stop attacking GS, ya'll are destroying his thread.
