As a phenomenon known to thin-film transistors (TFTs), liquid crystal displays (LCDs) commonly exhibit a small number of discoloration dots, as so-called "non-conforming pixels." This phenomenon is a limitation of TFT LCD technology, not a product defect, and as such is not covered by Acer's warranty.
