I only have a single monitor but when I go back to school tomorrow I'll look at it on their 25 inch or so iMac screens and see if I notice the same thing on there.

It must be the resolution of your monitor.
If it is turned down to conserve RAM, then definitely it would look like it is pixelized.

It's not though, it's just a normal laptop monitor with the highest resolution that I think it goes to.

I used to use a ist DS, then I moved to the K200D, then to the K20D, and I'll say the image quality has improved drastically between them, I use to see the same things with the ist DS, I used to use a noise removal tool to get rid of it in post, but be careful not to kill the details! I know the ist DS, was always very touchy with noise!

No! This has bothered me since I got the camera. These two examples may not be the worst though, but I deleted the one where you could literally see a lattice on a hillside formed by the sensor or something because of that a few months ago. You all really can't see the noise though?
I don't. I browsed around the general area you seem to be talking about, but really, a 100% crop showing *just* that area would help, because I still don't understand what I'm supposed to be seeing. I've seen tons of noise in my life, and tons of pixelation, but I don't see either here. Maybe a bit of posterization - a common JPEG artifact?
