After buying this i was super excited. The monitor came the next day as i paid for expedited shipping. Hooked up everything looked crisp. I enjoyed the bright crisp colors which was very pleasing. After some calibration i got the monitor to look exactly how i liked it. Everything was working fine until i came home from work today and noticed a dead pixel in the upper right hand corner. This is the only reason as to why i am giving it 3 stars. I love the curve and everything else but a monitor freshly purchased should not have a dead pixel the second day. Now that i know its there it is driving me nuts. Fortunately i bought the service plan with it and plan to have it replaced.
