The monitor arrived with no dead/stuck pixels. Out of the box, the monitor was extremely bright and this washed out the colors.
The monitor definitely needed calibration out of the box (hint: they all do). In addition, some of my biggest fears were backlight bleed and unbalanced lighting. The panel itself is extremely thin - sitting at just about 2 CM (see uploaded picture). The display, while not true edge-to edge.
The measured contrast ratio hovered around 1000:1, and ghosting time around 10ms. This is pretty much the limit for casual gaming. Coming out of Far Cry 3 and Battlefield 3, I definitely noticed a difference coming from a 2ms monitor. (The above times are actual response times, not Grey to Grey (G2G)
