Not true. It all depends on what you expect out of the Square Trade warranty. Is it going to protect you against dead or stuck pixels (if you do not buy a perfect pixel unit)? No. Now, is it going to protect you if the unit failed a few months/years down the road? Yes, They will either repair it or replace it (in this case I'm pretty sure it'll be a replace). So basically Square Trade will not help you on pixel claims but will help on the long term reliability issue.

Glad to hear it is not true, or are you saying that they did not say that down the thread? So are you saying you've had SquareTrade honor coverage? I have several items covered with them, so I am not trying to knock them just repeating what others reported here from their experience. What they say makes sense to me since these monitors (and their parts) are not for sale in the US officially. They have no FCC approval unless I have missed something.

Someone asked earlier about the Catleap under osx86, shows as "DVI" here:

He's a great seller from my experiences! Very quick with responses (as long as it's b/t 10AM-8PM local time in Korea) and the shipping was INSANELY quick. I placed the order Tuesday evening (EST) and the product arrived Friday morning (EST). I ordered a perfect pixel Potalion and it came in perfect condition (save for some minor backlight bleeding which is pretty much expected with an IPS panel) with no dead/stuck/bright/dark/etc. pixels. I am (so far) very happy with the purchase! I do have the option of buying SquareTrade warranty (I've talked to them and they said I'm covered for $49.99 for 3 years) in the next 30 days...I'm still debating on that!

Nope not yet! I haven't gotten the adapter yet (I plan on getting it this weekend). I will let you know as soon as I know!

Btw, is this an insane amount of backlight bleeding? It's pretty uneven (I can see that), but I'm not too familiar with IPS displays so IDK if this is really bad backlight bleeding or not.

That's pretty bad bleeding. Massage the panel around where the bleed occurs - you might get rid of it.

What is that bright white spot near the bottom left corner?
