Hello folks.... First post. I'm reading all the AE-100 posts with great interest. I'm so fed up with my Sony's dead pixel saga, I'm just about ready to flog it on ebay and get the Panny!! Just wondering if anyone else has had any experience of Sony's attitude to dead pixels: Bought March 2001...... NO DEAD PIXELS!!!! Only 60 hours use in the last 10 months (just occasional movies via HCPC).... and dead GREEN pixels have been multiplying since day 1.... Only 4 in total, but two of them are vertically adjacent (aaaargh!!) Sony have had it now for 7 weeks..... Still heard nothing. SURELY because all the faulty pixels are green, the green panel must be defective??!! Running LCD test via the PC shows all red & blue ones to be perfect... bummer. Any similar experiences?? (of Sony's attitude towards such a problem). Ta. eM out.
