Well, I knew this was all too good to be true. My Spectrum glossy (1 of 2) was delivered on Friday. I’ve just used it for the first time today for around 2-3 hours and have already noticed a dead pixel right in the centre of the panel.

Shall I return them both and order 2 Studio Displays from Apple like I should have done 6 months ago? If this has happened after 2 hours, what are the odds that any replacement you guys send me won’t have or develop defects, too?
Panel manufactured May 2022.
I work in the creative industry. Dead pixels are an absolute non-negotiable, especially for £2k worth of screens. Eve/Dough, help me out here please!
Edit: added another photo directly in this forum post.
Wow, I feel like the dumbest person in the world right now. Thanks Cas - you were right. I didn’t know that pushing the control stick to the right would toggle the crosshairs on/off (I was playing around with it when checking out the menus last night).
I’m not a gamer so I wouldn’t have even thought of this at all. Thanks and apologies for the sorta passive aggressive post
