They use the same panel as the iMac 27" for sure, but the Dell U2711 uses a slightly different panel in the same LG panel-family (something like LGXXX02 as opposed to LGXXX01 to give you an idea).
Not sure what the difference is, but I can assure you it's not $500 different...and you get no AG-coating on these Korean ones...they are smooth and crystal clear judging by the OP's pics.
Also, for those considering the 10-bit panels over the 8-bit ones....I don't think they are using true 10-bit panels. Also, unless you're working with a true 10-bit source - which not many people are going to actually have to drive a true 10-bit panel - there is no way that the 10-bit ones justify the $400-600 cost difference.
Let's stick to the basics, folks. $400 for a 2560x1440 IPS screen that is equivalent to a 27" iMac and U2711 at the same res, minus the AG-coating....delicious delicious cheapness.
