I wonder if you could even see 1-3 dead pixels, assuming they're not contiguos.

One good reason to go Internet is the lack of sales tax, in many cases. Some Internet dealers are charging for tax to Texas these days, tho (CDW, for one). If you're a business and reporting correctly, you'd pay sales tax quartely or annually anyway.

You may be able to find the same exact monitors at Fry's that are your pick on Egghead, but not always. If so, you can experience what they look like. At least jot down the specs and compare to the lcd's at the store.

One of the LCD features you'll want to pay attention to for clarity is the contrast ratio. 600:1 is ok, but 800:1 isn't uncommon and better of course.
