    What do you guys think of this insurance? $200 is quite steep but having guaranteed no dead pixels would be very nice. And does it also cover stuck pixels?

    why is it needed? I never seen dead pixels or stuck pixels on laptops before, do they usually happen?

    I asked XoticPC and they said I could simply ask for an exchange within 30 days if I don't take the insurance. Only difference is that shipping is not covered and Im not guarantee that the exchange won't have dead pixel.

    Btw, the first M860TU owner got a defective pixel :eek: so that leaves me perplex.

    if the exchange has a dead pixel, then can you exchange that one as well? :confused:

    Yes, and they had a stuck pixel.

    Personally, if you are so paranoid about it, best you got the dead pixel guarantee. Especially if you live somewhere where the shipping is going to be more than that both ways.

    I probably wouldn't notice a dead pixel on a 15.4" WUXGA screen anyways :p

    Dead pixel, stuck pixel = same thing I think

    Skip the insurance. If you get a bad pixel, just pay the shipping to send it back, or deal with it. Otherwise, you're paying $6.67 per day for something you find out about the moment you turn the notebook on for the first time. $200 for one button press? Nah, I'll roll the dice.

    heh, you say that but I was unfortunate enough to get a stuck pixel that could not be removed on my 570tu. I've sent it back for a replacement on wednesday but they still haven't received it yet so I'm going to be without a comp for the first few weeks of school starting tomorrow... But in the end, its better to wait then to pay 200 bucks.

    Unless you get another one with another dead pixel :D then you wish you had gotten the insurance, and you get the insurance then it comes without a dead pixel and you've wasted 340 bucks :D <--- pessimistic.
