Perhaps in the bad old days an LCD would only last that long, but the
lifespan of most modern examples is much longer. My Iiyama came with a
3-yr onsite warranty, which says something in itself and dead pixels
aren't as much of a problem as you might imagine. My own has two that
I'm aware of, but I've long since learned to live with them. Would I go
back to CRT for the sake of a couple pixels? I don't think so!
