Specifically for Liquid Crystal Display (“LCD”) screens:

Shegarf strives to provide the highest quality LCD display products in the industry. Your Product meets the Class 2 specifications under the ISO 13406-2 industry guidelines for LCD monitors.LCD monitors use a technology based on pixels. A pixel is a combination of three sub-pixels (red, green and blue) that produces a specific color. There are millions of these sub-pixels on each LCD screen. Pixel faults on LCD screens can be comprised of whole pixels or sub-pixels going dark, staying permanently lit or flashing. The ISO 13406-2 standard allows for a certain number of pixel faults based on the number of total pixels in the monitor (determined by the screen size). Shegarf will replace an LCD monitor during the Warranty Period if it meets the following criteria:
