Dead pixel on monitor what should i do

Should I replace it, get a different monitor or keep the one with the dead pixel.

that's the monitor I have now. the dead pixel is pretty noticeable but other than that I like but idk whether I should get a better panel or resolution with keeping the response time and refresh rate and if i should is there any suggestions that are around 200 USD

There's good 144hz monitors @$200 USD. If you can RMA and have the patience for it, go right ahead.

If you're within the return window, take it back to the store. If you're not, then you might be stuck with it. Manufacturers generally won't replace a whole panel via RMA for a single dead pixel.

There's nothing particularly wrong with that monitor. You just got one with a dead pixel. Now, if you didn't like the monitor anyway before noticing the dead pixel, then that's a different story. There are plenty of 1080p options at Best Buy around $200, and a 1440p Acer panel if you want a higher resolution.

Sincerely,
