When is a dead pixel not a dead pixel?


I was doing a bit of light reading today, flicking through an ASUS notebook warranty booklet (The booklet is way better than the movie). I found a section entitled TFT LCD Defect Policy that should clear up any confusion people might be having on what constitutes a problem with your notebook monitor. It states that you may claim warranty service when your screen has: least 3 bright dots or 6 dark dots or 8 bright and/or dark dots in total; or 2 adjacent bright dots OR 2 adjacent dark dots; or 3 bright and/or dark dots within an area 15mm in diameter.

Yes, that one "or" was in capitals.

The booklet also had a hilarious compendium of collective nouns for pixels. Well, no that's not true. But if it did I'd have to say my favourite one would be "a sprite of pixels". What's yours?


  1. Dude, you gotta get out more.

    A T(U)FT of pixels? Jeez… I think I gotta get out more.

  2. “A censored boob of pixels”

    I gotta get back out on the beach more (it’s about 10 metres to my right actually)…

  3. Ok so we came up with a few

    A nerd of pixels
    A dodgy of pixels
    An array of pixels
    a blur of pixels
    an alias of pixels

    Personally I reckon it would be a resolution of pixels

    An ensemble of homosexuals .. hee hee
