Viewsonics go #EXTREMESIXSIGMA crazy with their new monitors. Zero defective pixels allowed out of a total of 4 million / monitor. Their website explains how each of their 18″ SXGA LCD monitors that they produce has nearly 4 million sub-pixels.
Their return ( warranty ) policy will allow you to return a monitor in the first 3 months even if you find 1 bad pixel ! Very impressive.
Even 7 non-performing pixels would equate to an extremely small 0.00018 percent of the total sub-pixels.
(1280 Horizontal Pixels) * (1024 Vertical Pixels) * (3 sub-pixels per pixel) = 3,932,160 sub-pixels
This is much higher than the standard set by Motorola when they established 6 sigma level as 3.4 defects per million opportunities for defects. I always thought that Motorola set the bar too low ! I say we now need #EXTREMESIXSIGMA or perhaps #SEVENSIGMA. Who is with me on this ??
