Shopping around yesterday and they had one in the store. Couldn't resist it and bought it for £1300. Yes there are cheaper places on the net, but I just thought cos of the waiting lists in some places I just didn't fancy a month or even longer wait. Dealer was great and friendly, didn't check for dead pixels, but he said if it was in anyway unacceptable for me he would simply replace it. He also pointed out that he had sold around 40 or so units and only one had ever been returned. The fault being that one had just died, ie probably PSU. The other 39 I presume are very satisfied owners. Very, very popular machine indeed he said, as soon as he puts a box up on the shelf it sells within a day or two. Demand must be great out there, but that's hardly surprising at it's price point. One thing I noticed was my machine is Made in Japan, now I'm not sure if these machines are also manufactured elsewhere and if this has anything to do with the faults that crop up ? Would be interesting to know. Anyway about to unpack mine and set it up, lets see how good this thing is.
