Jesus, they're only asking for two quid, get over it.

It offers a useful service I paid up.

A tool like this is very helpful when trying to get a display fixed under warranty by Apple. If you can't document how many bad pixels you have then you are stuck. So a mere $4 for helping facillitate a repair or exchange is a good deal.

Hi,

Firstly, the idea of DPI is not to make anyone angry but to allow you to find any stuck or dead pixels so that you are able to try and return it to the manufacturer.
Of course, it depends on the manufacturer and the amount of dead pixels as to whether they will accept a return but its always worth a try.

Secondly, it is down to whether the user is interested as to whether their screen is damaged or not. We're not forcing you to download it and althgouh we appreciate feedback, we do not see how you could rate the application if you have never used it.

Thanks for the feedback....

Why would I want to PAY for something that's only going to make me angry?

I think this is probably the most useless tool ever crossed my eyes for a computer, i mean, why should i use this? If i have a dead pixel then i probably see it without this fancy little program, but if i can't see it for some reason then i would like to keep it that way! I'm not gonna even try it to look what it does.. imagine i have three more 'hidden' dead pixels!! Hmm that would ruin my day...

Great program, easy to use and cheap to register. True the dual screen doesnt work to well, but change it to mirror and it's fine.

Last poster is way to harsh, the full version is superb.

Better than anything else avaliable.

Doesn't work on the second monitor in a 2-monitor setup. It ISN'T free, and the software is a crippled demo.

This actually worked for me to unstick a red pixel on my 15" Powerbook G4. I did quite a bit of massaging first, until the pixel would go away ocassionally when i was applying pressure to the machine (took about 15 minutes, decided to opt for finger over pencil eraser because it seemed less damaging) but it kept coming back. I ran this program, went through each color, and the pixel didnt come back, Wacky, i wouldn't have believed it. but it worked!

I've bought for this one but the developer don't answer any e-mail and don't send me any code or full version.
What can I do?
This kind of unprofessional must be banned from this site!

Please note that the demo is slightly feature locked, and all burn tests will only run for 1 minute; this product will not revive dead/stuck pixels, only help identify them. Don’t forget to ensure you read the end user license agreement fully, and make sure you have a full working backup ready before installing any new software. As with all our software we have taken all precautions to ensure it is virus free; but as a matter of course you should always check this yourself.
