    Have a look at this thread http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=216600

    To summarize this defines that

    "Whatever goods are bought they must "Conform to Contract" This means they must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality (i.e. not inherently faulty at the time of sale"

    So if you buy an lcd or plasma with a duff pixel you should be able to get a swap out for it ? How does this fair against the manufacturers dead pixel policies ?

    Food for thought maybe ?

    No because the industry have graded the panels according to how many dead pixels there are and unless it is labelled as an "A-grade" panel then they allowed something like up to three dead or stuck pixels to be sold as a perfect panel.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Must say the 6 years guarantee is an interesting point though and people who take out extended warranties are just being conned IMHO.
