I already arranged for an exchange with BB. The replacement cost me a ton more so it better be worth it. I don't care if it has a dead pixel or even two as long as they aren't front and center - but the brightness needs to be uniform or it will drive me crazy. Supposedly the display I'm getting doesn't have these problems but I'm holding back final judgement until I use it for a couple months. I swear my 37w1 didn't have that uniformity problem for the first couple weeks or so.
