That's why it is better to buy big things like TVs and monitors locally whenever possible. Returns are much simpler and usually cheaper since you don't have to shell out for shipping.
Very true. I picked up a Samsung tv from Best Buy(usually against my principles, but they actually had the best price on it) and after about a week I found 4-5 stuck pixels. I ran it through all of the tests I could and found out one pixel was dead and 4 were just stuck......no luck fixing them either. I called them and told them what the deal was and they said to bring it up there so they could test it. The guy testing it was cool.....he let me come around the counter to the testing area and show him where they were, he saw them and went and got a replacement right away. I started to buy that same tv from Newegg as it was a few bucks cheaper with no shipping....I can't imagine how much of a pain it would be to return it, that is if they WOULD exchange it.
I have purchased monitors online before, and I stressed the entire time about the condition on delivery. I have been fortunate thus far.
