Hi guys, just wanted to ask a quick question on a display upgrade after some brief back-story... I am currently in the market for a new laptop and likely to purchase an NP6165. However, I am very afraid of any potential dead/stuck pixels that would mar my display.
On-top of the hassle of having to return it to the company to be fixed up, I am only going to be in the US for around 3 weeks when I would have it ordered to ship to a friend's address that I'd be staying at. So it would be a stretch to have remedied if something did happen as I do not have much time for that to occur (hence my fears).
So my question would be, if I were to choose the 95% color gamut upgrade for my NP6165, are there any reasonable chances of it still coming with dead/stuck pixels? Or is that more of an issue if the laptop were to ship with a stock display?
I cannot really afford to pay for the 60 dollar warranty if I were to choose the upgraded screen. I can, however, choose it if I were to stick with the standard one. But again, despite the warranty (if I were to choose it), I would be on a time crunch if the laptop did need to be returned due to malfunctioning pixels.
So... what do you think?
EDIT: Also, would the NP6165 be the best bang for my buck for the price? My budget is $1000 and I really cannot go any higher than that.
