    A couple of posts contained the claim that dead pixel(s) are very common on Playbooks. Are they? Let's find out from PB owners here. It will be an open poll so that non PB owners trying to troll can be identified.

    Did you give it a name? I had a dead pixel on my Dell Vostro. I named him Steve.

    None, on the day I got it I downloaded Display Test and ran it along with min to max brightness adjustments to check (along with other hardware tests).

    What a coincidence... bought a Playbook today as a gift for my fianc, lo and behold it had a couple dead pixels! Exchanging tomorrow. Generally speaking, if you start without any, you won't get any, but if you start with some, it probably won't go away. Just a heads up.

    Has anyone seen any hot pixels? Always on? They are worse. They would have to be named by color. Reddy, Greeny, Blooy. Never heard a complaint as they would more likely be caught at the factory I suppose..

    In app world, search screen helper"
    Free version is "lite" and only runs 2mins or so
    Full version can run for hours that may be needed for "stuck" pixels.

    If I need that to find out, well............ I guess I'm not bothered by it now so I don't want to find out as I'd probably be seeing it all the time when I don't now lol.

    I have/had one... it seems to have mostly gone away though which is odd.

    I was originally really bothered by it but after a day I really didn't care anywhere near as much

    If I have to go through all that to see them, then my response is - who cares....
