Distance Selling Regulations:
The terms and conditions of sale detailed below are provided for your information, in line with legislation contained in Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000. This legislation covers items bought where there is no direct contact between the supplier and the consumer. It does not apply where goods are bought for business use, from showrooms, fairs or exhibitions.
TFT, LCD & Plasma Pixel Policy:
As a 15inch LCD display contains 2,359,296 pixels, a 19inch LCD display contains 3.932.160, and a 24inch display contains 6,912,000, having a “few” dead pixels is not considered a defect. It is rare for a monitor to ship with, or develop pixel irregularities. If or when a dead pixel occurs, it is not an indication that more will occur. It is usually a solitary incident.
Therefore, ICL Web Design feel it is important to make our customers aware that some screens may have slight irregularities in the form of dead pixels.
Unfortunately, ICL Web Design will only be able to arrange a replacement for a screen that has three or more dead pixels spread across the screen, or two dead pixels that are connected to each other.
We are sorry for any disappointment this may cause our customers, however, the manufacturers of TFT, LCD and Plasma screens dictate this policy.
