I agree with Fox here...if you think it's worth getting another one try to. If you don't notice the pixel that much -- though guessing you know where it is, you see it all the time, just go with the flow. Besides attempting to massage it out and blast it with "static" there's not a whole lot to "fix" it i fit hasn't been fixed by such methods.
Thanks for the replies. I think I'm just going to keep it. After using for a day, I just about never notice it, even though i know where it is. And yes, it's a u3011 (revision A08), not 3011wfp. Colors out of the box are much better vs the 3007wfp-hc it's replacing and the backlighting seems to be a bit more uniform.
BTW, I noticed that the anti-glare (AG) coating was a bit less noticeable on the new u3011 than on the 3007wfp, which I really like. This surprised me as I've read that the U3011 uses a very heavy AG coating. But then today I found a forum post
claiming that the AG on the u3011 was reduced on the newer A08 revision... Anyway, I find the AG to be pretty much just right (if still a tad much). All in all, I can't really complain about getting a few month-old replacement for a 3-year old monitor with less features, worse color calibration and slightly heavier AG coating, stuck pixel or no.
BTW, for Canadians, the u3011 is $980
