Just found this on Aria PC.


"This 22" Widecreen is a brand new item which does not conform to ISO 13406-2 standards for dead pixels. The monitor is in perfect working order but may have pixel defects. It is supplied with a 7 day dead on arrival warranty which does not cover pixel defects. The bargain price reflects this fact, but it is a great oppurtunity to get a 22" monitor for an extremley low price.

PLease note that VGA and power cables may not be supplied. "


Not sure if it is possible to fix any pixel defects with software. Either way, it is a low price for a 22" monitor, even if you just have it as a spare.
Can't seem to find Aria on quidco.

Hot, but that dont like that wording. Sounds like they know there a heap of dead pixels. Like OP has said, ok for a spare but a £66 risk if you want it as your primary monitor

Here's how you can see how many dead pixels you could end up with:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_13406-2

They dont say what class of monitor they're selling. Most are class II but you could end up with a class IV and thats allowed some amount of dead pixels! (remembering, these have failed that allowed amount)

Brand new monitor - with pixel defects, 7 day Dead on Arrival Warranty

A "Brand New" item should come with a 12 month warranty by law. And if it's brand new how do they know this has dead pixels.

Me thinks this is false advertising
#3
Sounds like poor value to me, given the defects. £57 goes a long way towards the cost of a decent monitor with DVI and without defects.
banned#4
£65.34 delivered OP needs to include delivery for this

deffo a cold deal for a rubbish monitor with loads of dead pixels that will only get worse anyone who buys one will regret it
#5
Well if it doesn't conform to ISO 13406-2 at all then it's got at least 90(!) dead bright pixels.

I assume they're actually refering to the class II section of the standard, which would put it at 4+ white pixels or 4+ black pixels or 9+ subpixels dead.

And no, they can't be reliably fixed in software.
#6
Good price for a 22", but not this 22" ;)

I'd avoid, dodgy returns it sounds like. AVOID
#7
Nothing worse than having dead/stuck pixels on screen. One of my pet hates that i ALWAYS check before accepting a monitor - so much so that the 22" Samsung im using now took 3 attempts from EBuyer lol !
#8
Interesting also that they try to exclude returning it within seven days on the grounds of pixel defects - which of course would be contrary to people's rights under the distance selling regulations. Dodgy beggars.
#9
aria offer a dead pixel check which you pay for see this link https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Displays/Monitors/TFT+20+-+23/20%22+-+23%22+TFT+Dead+Pixel+Check?productId=21375
when i buy a monitor or tv from the store (i live nearby luckily) i always look very carefully at the box to see if it has been resealed and as has happened i reject it and ask for another until i get an unopened one which i am happy to take my chances with! These monitors are more than likely the ones people who work for aria have rejected knowing that there are excessive dead pixels. As i once said at the counter if you know a monitor has a defect because it has been checked it should not be sold as new.
not hot for me i'm afraid.
#10
Looks like they are dumping their customer returns for a cheap price - fine if you want guaranteed dead pixels. Personally, I'll skip this one.
#11
As others have said, although it might be cheap it is a cold deal for me as I'd rather put that money towards a fully working one. A monitor with dead pixels is like a car with a wheel missing.

Well kinda. !! :whistling:
#12
This seems to be the supersaver version of this:

https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Displays/Monitors/TFT+20+-+23/22%22+Widescreen+Monitor+Downgrade+?productId=35762

Thats up to 10 dead pixels (or possible the ones worse than 10 as it does not specify number).... hmmmm, thats alot of dead pixels.
#13
voted cold £65.34 is too much for a monitor that may have dead pixels no dvi, and not from a big rand such as samsung or liyama plus the bezel looks ugly i rather buy a 19inch screen for that price
#14
ALL new monitors MAY have dead pixels - thats why there's ISO/industry standards to protect customers against getting a pup and some manufacturers exceeding those standards with promises of none etc etc.

This retailer s/be ashamed offering these - even more than anyone buying one!

Next week's "hot uk deals"...

Do you crack it open and test it in front of the delivery guy before signing?
#16
I used to work for a company making LCD's (Fujitsu). If a monitor fails the ISO 13406 it means it has 10-90 visible bad pixels. IE they will be bright white or green usually.

I can also confirm its ILLEGAL to sell these as new as they dont meet the ISO standards, they can only be sold as refurbished or repaired, and if they still have the 10-90 white pixels, they will be very noticable im afraid.

Nearly £70 inc delivery for a faulty monitor = SUPER COLD!!!! BUYER BEWARE!
#17
I paid £370 for a Dell 24" 2408 WFP monitor - mainly because of the zero dead pixel guarantee, worth every penny. Any other monitor looks terrible alongside it. Would not recommend this deal

What makes it illegal then? They clearly state what the product is so it's not as if they're deceiving anyone.

Just use the Distance Selling Regs rule ;-) 7 possibly 14 days to return ANY item ordered over the net or telephone by law. With the 2 that i sent back EBuyer even collected them and didnt charge return postage. Use it, thats what its there for !

PS ive also returned 2 laptops to HP coz they had dead pixels and one Sony Viao to BarginCrazy coz it had a stuck pixel bright red slap bang in the middle of the screen. Hey its my rights so why not. Its something that id be looking at every day thinking.... hmm i hate that !

PPS them saying the 7 day guarantee doesnt cover dead pixels is total shiyt. The 7 days covers you basically 'not liking the product and changed my mind' so regardless of dead pixels you can still return the product by law.

But "dead pixels" does NOT equal "second hand".

Sorry ,but it is absolutely NOT illegal to sell this item as new.

However - it IS illegal to sell it the way they are selling it, and attempting to intentionally ignore their obligations under a) DSR and b) SOGA.

Disgraceful behaviour. Deserving of cold in itself from me.

No reputable company would sell rubbish like this, but this is Aria.. ..nuf said.. :roll:

Who wants to buy a monitor that has a chance of dead pixels?

they must of been opened and used for them to know they have dead pixels so must be 2nd hand
#25
Thats:

a) not true, it could be due to manufacturer quality testing
b) not true, as "opened" products (i.e. customer returns) are not legally classed as second hand.
