Default Galaxy tab pro 8.4 dust/dead pixels

My first two tab pros had 3-5 dead pixels under the screen and the current one now has 2-3 specks of dust under the screen. They were purchased from Amazon if that matters to anyone.

Has anyone else had these issues?

I have dust under the screen, I've bought from local retailer, Samsung repair center told me to wait for a month until they have parts to replace it.

My first Tab Pro 8.4 had a lot of dust/smudging in one corner. I bought it from Best Buy so I took it back. The replacement is fine.

Not the 8.4 but 12.2 tab pro from Amazon had a problem--either a group of dead pixels or sediment beneath the digitizer not just beneath the screen. The replacement had been opened (updated os plus re-taped) apparently to be inspected by Amazon. It has no issues although, ironically, there was a lot of debris inside the box of the replacement. Each was shipped from a different distribution center.

I must have gotten lucky with my 8.4. My wife is on her 3rd 10.1 right now. Dead pixel on the first one and the second one had some strange issue with the screen in one spot where it was too shiny or reflective. It wasn't a dead or stuck pixel. So far the 3rd one is good.

Almost makes me wonder if Amazon deals with B stock items, seems most of thr complaints come from there.

Got mine from Amazon early March and it appeared to be fine. This weekend I noticed a stuck pixel, and now in process of returning it.
Pity to hear about this, given Samsung is an A-brand.
