it was nice while it lasted

Got home last night, and the top 1″ of the new LCD panel was darker than the rest of the screen (backlight problem?) and there was a prominent stuck pixel right in the middle of the display.

I took it back to Conn’s today and got an Envision EN-985E 19″ CRT monitor instead. The assistant manager gave me a 1-year “bring it back to the store and we’ll give you another one” warranty for my trouble, and it has a three-year manufacturer’s warranty as well.

Ended up saving $349.
