I meant a small spec of dust on the upper-right* sorry. Yeah, the one in the middle is definitely a dead pixel.
Best. Ever.

and how am I complaining? I expect them to make a profit.
When ughnook asked for a lower price, I merely pointed out to ughnook that dreamseller's profit margin is roughly 10%. which I find reasonable.

Not sure if anyone got one from dreamseller yet. In any case, I like the monitor. It's the same panel LG as the OP so, the choice is yours. No speakers though (even though as you can see from my pictures it uses the same back frame as the OP, so you see the speaker grills, but no speaker or audio in jack).

I guess thats why I'm confused, as that link at the top it says "QH270 doesn't have tempered glass".

Is it the one you have without a glass front? Guess I can send him a note to ask once he's back from his day off.

Every one of the tempered glass ones have been flawed...looking like I made the right call to go non-tempered AND go with dreamseller. dcsamsungmall has a terrible track record so far with 3-4 non-tempered panels...ouch.

Not sure why people are enamored with tempered glass, unless you want your screen to be flush like an over-enlarged iPad lol. There is no functional or visual difference between tempered and non-tempered glass on monitors, folks! The fact that the tempered glass ones are selling for cheaper than the non-tempered "zero bright dot policy" ones should be somewhat of a red flag as well....maybe the sellers know that those variants are inherently/more likely to be flawed?

For those considering Minarinshop, I asked if she could add protection and she responded.

Yes, we will put bubble wrap all around the outside of the box, and mark "fragile".
How much do you want to insure the package and declare it for? Every 98,000won (~$100) costs 1,800won. Due to customs, I usually mark everything $30 Gift, but you may not want that in this case. Let me know!

How much cheaper was it, and who's shipping it?

Its shipped via EMS 3-5 days + tracking

Not entirely sure because I'm buying a Crossover for ~$400 shipped instead.

But if you look at all the listings for IPSBS atm they all say "Tempered Glass". At this point I'm ready to just give up I'm confusing myself so much.

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

If you scroll down to the feature list, you'll see from the pictures that the IPSB is the only model in the QH270 line with tempered glass.

So I shoudl just ignore the seller comments then huh? Scary if he don't know what he's selling LOL!

Thanks though. I guess I'll have to pick one and take the plunge. Appreciate the clarification.

Yeah pretty much he has no idea what he's selling. Brucethemoose has commented multiple times that he seems to know the products better than the seller(s). This is just one out of a ton of stuff they're selling and they don't really care that much about the details.
