    And are they a nuisance and does it bother you?
    I noticed about 6 on my Sony this afternoon,it has taken the shine off it a bit but they are not really visible in normal viewing unless you look really hard.
    Just curious as to what others may have.

    Philips 32Pf9986 - 1 dead pixel. 1 light pixel.
    Philips won´t change it since according to them it is in the specs of the product.

    Sharp 37", no idea! Probaby none as I have had the screen 7 monthsand never seen any, but I think it is a bad idea to go looking for them.

    Sonix 26inch - 1 faulty pixel - shows up RED on white backgrounds, otherwise you can't really see it.

    I agree!
    I wasn't looking for them,I was very happy with the set until I happend to turn it well I was stood in frront of it and there was no picture on the screen and I saw the first one.
    Then I looked and saw the other 5 as well.
    The thing is sat at normal viewing distance you cant see them but it is just knowing they are there,I dont know if I can live with it!

    Yes and Yes.

    1st Sonix had two dead reds on white/light backgrounds. Annoying as you like and you start trying to see if you can see them rather than watching the programme, film itself. Exchanged

    2nd Sonix has 1 dead dark on blue only. Very difficult to see. Not visible with normally viewing on any material

    PJ-TX10 (projector) no dead pixels. 19" TFT monitor no dead pixels. 14.1" PC TFT no dead pixels

    Don't go looking for them or they will bug you forever.......

    Toshiba 32wl48. I had just one dead pixel on my first set which nearly drove me bonkers. Well, I thought what else do you spend hundreds of pounds on with built in imperfections? I kept looking for it every time I put the TV on. So I sent the TV back and bought another which took a month to arrive but was perfect. Having said that there's no point letting them bug you, especially if you can't do anything about them and can't even see them from a viewing distance. Life's too short to let tiny things like that get to you. Think about the million or so that are working perfectly!

    Relisys RLT3200: 1 subpixel that seems to be stuck on red against black backgrounds, and a couple of other that look a little 'odd' :(
    Not noticable from normal viewing distance fortunately.

    Nintendo DS: 1 pixel on the bottom screen thats stuck on blue.

    This is the one thing that's putting me off buying an LCD. I have TFT monitors for the computers and I certainly would not tolerate dead pixels on them so I'm not about to spend up to two grand on something that may be imperfect! Plasma may have it's own foibles but dead pixels isn't one of them.

    I think that a dead/stuck pixel on my monitor would be a lot more annoying that one on my tv (as i sit right in front of the monitor and 6ft from the tv).
    Fortunately all the pixels on the monitor work ok.

    Of course your right, probably wouldn't notice a dead pixel from the normal viewing distance but if one goes, others can go and that does bother me. At least with Plasma there are no pixels to go dead.
