Pixel Flipper – This feature exercises all of the pixels on the screen, attempting to eliminate "burn-in" and "stuck" pixels.
For those who know about this stuff: is this actually possible?

burn-in, I don't know, but stuck pixel, yes. Usually by flashing the pixel on and off very very quickly for a period of time the stuck pixel sometimes can be un-stucked.

So is this BD available in Canada? I try not to buy it from the ***********. Their shipping and pre-taxing is just ridiculously high.
