I was in the same situation as you a few posts back. I was torn between shelling out the extra $60 from bigclothcraft on eBay for the perfect pixel service they offer. I decided to save the money and test my luck with just the regular base model. As I type this my two monitors are being processed and on their way, as soon as I receive them, I'll follow up and post the following:
1. Any noticeable dead pixels.
2. Package condition.
3. Monitor defects.
4. Pictures.
A few things to keep in mind. With this resolution, 2560 x 1440, 1-5 dead pixels scattered are really not going to be noticeable. The problem is when there are 1-5 in a relatively close cluster, I think.
EDIT: I found a thread for a similar monitor on OCN. There is a picture of a dead pixel on an Achieva Shimian. They have the same resolution and high PPI (pixels per inch) as the Yamakasi. http://cdn.overclock.net/a/a4/a424868b_oXEG5h.jpeg

So, I'm here to report on how my experience was with eBay, bigclothcraft (the seller) and my monitors.
1. Any noticeable dead pixels.
Not a single dead pixel. I purchased the standard version of the model, no glass, no speakers, no multi input. I think I was lucky when I got these thumb.gif.
I accidentally let one of the boxes fall onto its side when I was unpacking them, and fortunately I had working monitors.
2. Packing condition.
I think the packing of these monitors could have been better. Knowing they are travelling about 2000 miles, they were just wrapped in foam and that was it. They were marked as fragile so that will ease some minds in thinking their monitors are being tossed around.
3. Monitor defects.
To be honest, the bezel, stand, and anything other than the screen itself, are really crappy. They're is a lot of warping, and just typing on my keyboard, the screen will do the wub wub. The screen is EXCELLENT. Colors are spectacular, the gloss on the screen (as long as you are away from light) makes everything look nicer. As long as you're not looking for
4. Pictures.
I leave you all with an album of various steps of setting my monitors up. If anyone wants a picture of anything, just let me know.

Also, bigclothcraft was an amazing seller. He responded to my messages maybe 2-5 minutes within sending them. I can say that the worst part of the whole process was DHL. Though, their shipping within 4 days (I purchased on Saturday, recieved today on Wednesday) was impressive, they did miss their delivery date that was said to be a day before on their tracking website.
And finally, a picture of my desktop at 5120 x 1440:

Great to hear! Will you be picking up a stand?
Also did you have to pay DHL? I thought I saw somewhere in this thread where you have to pay like $30 at the door so I want to confirm that.

Nope, did not have to pay DHL anything. I just had to sign and that was it. Maybe that's the reason they mark the package as a gift, to avoid customs fees.
EDIT: I thin I'm going to get these mounts: http://www.amazon.com/Mount-It-Articulating-Computer-Monitor-monitors/dp/B0052AWGLE/ref=pd_ybh_7

If you are in the US, you will not have to pay any extra as US and Korea have a free trade agreement.

So I just received a bill from FedEx in the mail for customs/import duty on my Catleap. It was a bill for $0.00. Part of me hopes I get reported to debt collectors for not paying just for the lulz, as long as it doesn't hurt my credit. Then when they call me I'll offer to pay them over the phone using pennies!

Have you received your monitor? If not I call them up as they most likely won't delivery until that is sorted out, if you have received it then yeah just keep LOLing.

I am almost ready to bite the bullet on this, but am a little confused about dual link DVI and DVI-I- vs DVI-D. Yes, I did google it. I am using a DVI KVM (Gefen EXT-DVIKVM-241 2x1 DVI KVM Switcher) and think I may have a problem since it doesn't look like from the specs that it is outputs dual. When I search for dual-link DVI KVMs they seem REALLY expensive. Am I missing something or will I have to drop back to a VGA connection in order to share the monitor? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
