Am I asking too much??

I've been trying to purchase a D100 for 3 weeks now. The first one I received had HUGE solid black blobs in the picture and I sent it back without realizing I could check the ccd without using the AC adaptor. No matter though - that should not have occurred. The second one I was happy with until last night when I was taking some nighttime pictures and indoor pictures. Seems there is a defective pixel in the ccd. It shows up as a bright tiny dot when photographing a dark subject. Mind you, this is hard to see until you blow up the picture on a computer screen but in certain pictures it is hard to ignore. The total area affected is about 9 pixels. It's like a little far-away star (in my living room!)

Now am I asking too much?? Should I expect more from Nikon as far as quality control? I have already decided to return the camera for yet another exchange.

Just wondering if I am having bad luck or is this something other D1x users have been through? Would appreciate any feedback because I'm starting to wonder how many cameras I will have to go through to find one I will be satisfied with - *sigh*
