I purchased an Hitachi 42pd7500 last month and it wasn't til I sat down and watched my first footy game on it that I noticed a black dead pixel about 5 inches off the centre of the screen. I got in touch with the supplier RGB and they didn't want to know and said that anything up to 7 dead pixels is "within manufacturers specification" and said if I wanted to take it further, I would have to take it up with Hitachi. I got in touch with Hitachi customer services who got their local agent to call round and have a look. He was very sympathetic and said he wouldn't be happy either to have shelled out over £2k on a TV with a black dot on it. He rang back later to say he had spoken to Hitachi, and basically all they are saying is that I can ship it off to them, and they will have a look at it, but if they say it is within spec, they will just return it to me and I will have to pay all the shipping fees both ways! Has anyone had a scrap over this issue, and was it worth the battle?
