I noticed a white rectangle, presumably 1px by 1px, in the upper left corner of a 21.5" LG monitor I recently purchased. After exchanging it for a new monitor I find the new one has the same stuck pixel.

After running a stuck pixel fixer (JScreenFix) it is now stuck a blue color. I suppose I might try one more screen, after three I think I might have to assume they all have this defect.

It's a good enough buy I might put up with it but I feel like returning it. I am confused. Does anyone have monitor recommendations? This one was ~$120, 1080p, 75Hz, IPS.

Anything but Dell. I bought a monitor off them, started getting physical junk mail and cold calls from people with unintelligible accents.

They all sound like they are talking through a massive underbite and offering you their "Windows Technical Support".

My last purchase in 2013 was for a pair of ASUS PA248Q monitors (24" 1920x1200 IPS). I also dislike 16:9 monitors.

If I didn't have a specific need for something different today, I wouldn't hesitate to buy more.

That said, I might research availability of higher density pixel monitors, though I'm not sure if those have become commonly available.
