Survey - Dead Pixels

Question 
I was curious about the frequency of dead pixels on the various Pinebook models... Would anyone care to share their experiences?

Mine is a 14" and came with 1.


Note: Definitely not putting Pinebooks down.. These are sweet machines

The LCD panel manufacturer guarantee that less than 20% delivered panel has bad pixel. We insist using "A" class stock LCD panel even cost much higher.
#5
14in - no dead pixels, 11in - 1 dead pixel (black - so no real issue).
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

One dead pixel here, no to much trouble because it is not a centered one, but stills annoys me

Normally, you can't tell if you have a "dead" pixel, unless you have a screen scanner, and you turn the pixels ON|OFF one by one recording which of them work (or not) and at what color(s).  Most people don't do this of course;  usually when someone complains of a "dead" pixel its because the pixel is stuck on (usually bright) in some obscure part of the screen making itself annoyingly obvious.  If it were truly "dead" and never lit, you'd probably never ever notice it because of the over-abundance of working pixels...

Actually, I've had a half-dead pixel on a 1024x768 monitor. The green part would do ~50% brightness, the red/blue was fine. It was quite visible from time to time, but not annoying. Used that monitor for a long time.

A permanent bright pixel is rare, but happens, I've seen it once, and it's quite bad, as it always catches your focus. I wouldn't be too happy if my pinebook had that...

Mine has a single green pixel in the middle of screen which pisses me off :-(
