There's a UK dealer (Aria IIRC) offering a dead pixel check for an extra
£15. If it's working when they sell it, then it should stay working
AFAIK; I don't think LCDs deteriorate pixel by pixel. Everything should
be at least as reliable as a CRT except for the backlight.

Both of mine have one dead pixel each near the edges, and it isn't a
problem for me. They still look just as good as when they were new.
