    My 436XDE will (hopefully) arrive this friday. I have struck a 3 years warranty / zero dead pixel deal. Now this means the reseller will personally check the display before actual delivery, and it will therefor arrive in a previously opened box. Allthough this makes perfect sense to me I still want to check for myself, and also want to know how many hours the set has been running. Does anyone know how many hours are on a brand new display when it arrives, or - to put it blunt - at what number I would have to become suspicious?

    If it wasn't being tested it should be at zero hours...and it shouldn't take very long to test it for dead pixels.

    Yes, but would it not have been tested at the factory and therefor show a small number of hours?
