I got myself a Jap one and it has no DP's. Luckily the guy was a UK seller and we had to go through 5 boxes to get to a clean one. I'm glad I didn't order from overseas as this would really have been a lottery ! All the others had 1 DP, either Red, White or Green and they were near the edges of the screen. In actual fact looking at them didn't cause the bother I was expecting eg TFT monitors, but it is always nice to have something perfect I guess ! Has anybody had any DP's develop over time ? Is this issue still a major one. To be fair the screen attracts so much dust, one DP really wouldn't cause me an issue if it was to happen. On my DS I had to change it twice from ToysRUs. It had green stuck one in the middle of the screen. Which on a smaller screen in the middle is a bigger issue. Thoughts appreciated !
