No way man, it's not just about cheap. It's the same monitor as the apple cinema display, just without the cool aluminum housing, and less than half the price. And $400 is expensive, just as a $1000 monitor is expensive. Even if $1k isn't a big deal for you, why spend $600 more if the aluminum housing doesn't appeal to you? Just pay the seller to double check the monitor before shipping it out if you're concerned. Cheap people don't gamble with $400 anyway.
Man I hope these korean ebay monitors drive elite monitor prices down so the display makers may want to introduce more pixel density or something for new models.
