Note on LCD panel

Some stationary blue, red or green dots may
appear on the monitor. These are called “bright
spots,” and can happen with any LCD. The LCD
panel is precision-manufactured with more than
99.99 % of its segments functional. However, it
is possible that a small percentage (typically
0.01 %) of the segments may not light up
properly. This will not, however, interfere with
your viewing.
