This $350 Crossover 27" comes with an LG AH-IPS panel.
Which I believe is what Apple uses in their $1000 27" monitor.
Apple might be cherry picking the AH-IPS panels off the assembly line.
But your still going to get a great picture.
My 27" Yamakasi uses the AH-IPS and I'm really happy with the picture quality.
Color is great and with it's small dot pitch, I can read the words while running at 2560X1440.
Even without using my reading glass, I can still read the somewhat small lettering
The Korean sellers ship the monitors from South Korea (takes 7 days to reach California).
but they might have local companies in your area that handle warranty services.
Lots of different Korean sellers on eBay, so might check out each ones warranty services.
When I bought my Yamakasi (from Green-Sum), I knew I would not have any local (in USA) warranty services.
but I accepted the risk.
no regrets buying my monitor
