Perfection or no perfection?

Until now all but a few of my PCs have used CRTs. The two LCDs I do own are 15" and they are perfect pixel-wise. Today I got my Dell 24" WFP2407....its huge and beautiful. But, in the middle of the screen, I have a pixel that is stuck red. Its not the worst thing in the world but it is pretty noticable. So, should I exchange it for another or is it impossible to get a screen this big without imperfections?

As far as I understand it (not far) a pixel stuck on a color is better than a pixel which doesn't work at all, and you may be able to 'unstick' it with software.

Google 'stuck pixel', there are various programs.

There are also tricks to do with putting pressure on it and such - I take no responsibility if you try this...

I've heard of people using an eraser to lightly rub the lcd in the spot with the stuck pixel to fix it.
