By the way, most, if not all, car manufacturer's do produce "lemons". Where do you think we got the term and why do so many states have "lemon laws"? Its the same with nearly any product and the more so with complex products like laptop computers. Remember this, a typical laptop is probably more complicated than anything less than 10' on a side built by man before 1960. Its amazing they work at all.
That's why SAGER has a 30 day, no questions asked, money back return policy. You don't like it, for any reason, dead pixels, it smells funny, it doesn't match your decor, or you think it makes your dog jealous, just send it back. Hell, $30 or so is worth it just to see and play with such a nasty beast for three or four weeks, even if it is a bit bunky.
However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't mouth off on these forums. They are a primary way for PCTorque to get feedback on the product and provides them with hard material to talk to SAGER with and the same goes for SAGER to CLEVO and presumably that also goes with CLEVO to Hitachi. And that will help make the product better for all of us.
But Myrkat is right, even if you take the example with the school lab, he came up with about 2% to 4% problem pixel rate, which is what I would guess it the rate of bad pixels being seen. I'd go so far as to say with 200 machines, he really didn't have time to really assess them all in detail so even his rate might be low. I mean, a thorough examination takes at least 3 or 4 minutes and that adds up to 10 to 13 hours, did he really spend that much time checking them out?
So, if you have a problem, speak up and send it back. I just hope you will speak up later when, hopefully, you get a flawless screen in return and have that hot-damnedest laptop around. And if you really feel SAGERs suck, well, go buy something else. I, for one will appreciate it as it will decrease the demand, even if only a little bit.
