Hmmm, the ebay monitor is listed as "QH270-Lite"
524

But that doesn't correspond to any of the models from that review. I'm assuming it's the most basic one, the IPSB, which isn't a problem, but the fact that it's an unknown model worries me.

I'll know next week.

According to Achieva website, the QH270 series has 6 variants (but no Lite)

http://www.achieva.co.kr/product/product_03_lcd.htm?cate1=1222158329&cate2=&cate3=&code=1296293755

 

I suspect it might be a sub model of the IPSBS because if you look at the description title of the QH270-Lite in Gmarket, it seems to say so.  And, it says it only has DVI-D only.

BTW, this model is also available in China for RMB 2,770 (=US$ 440)

It's not a bad monitor. An IPS one to be exact.

I am really interested in on of these does anyone know about what plug adapter is needed. Also would the refresh rate be ok for gaming with this panel. Thanks.

This is all you need as far as I know.
http://www.amazon.com/US-to-European-Plug-Adapter/dp/B0012S304W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1329599404&sr=8-2

At worst, you would need a $20-$40 step up transformer to use it in the US, but this monitor has a power brick. Every power brick I've seen takes 120V (US) or 240V (Everywhere else).

And it's 60hz, like most other monitors, which is fine for gaming. 120hz at that resolution is impossible anyway.

They have similar specs, but it's not the same panel. That Dell, and most similar monitors here in America, use a Samsung IPS panel. The one I ordered uses an LG IPS panel.

For gaming and general use, these are 2 of the best high res monitors.

Not only are they cheaper, but they're LED backlit (the Dell has a fluorescent backlight) and have less input lag than the Dell U2711.

http://news.danawa.com/News_List_View.php?nSiteC=1&nSeq=2102896&sMode=news&nBoardSeq=61

i am also interested in this monitor when i saw the danawa website promotion, from 270k to 248k won (248k ~ around usd 230)

i am currently studying in korea (but dun ask me to translate as my korean is sucks)
i may want to get one of this, but i just bought a dell u2312hm for 219k won
and i also previously own a samsung p2494hs
so basically i have 2x23 monitor now
kinda weird if i get another 27 inches
BUT this monitor looks very promising with the cheap price
i always wanted to get a 27 inches monitor, was waiting for LG DM52 or LG DM92 but its news has vanished
and also 27 inches from samsung is very expensive

sorry for the long story
i actually wanted to know if any1 already owns one of the achieva 27 s-ips monitor?
and any review of it?
