I just ordered one from him on Sunday for $397, got it on Tuesday in GA. It has 0 dead pixels and the backlight bleed is non-existent, better than any picture I've seen posted by any forum user. Probably has better backlight uniformity/lack of bleed than any monitor I've ever owned and I've had 10-15 LCDs. The picture looks like using a 27 inch version of an NEC 20wmgx2, which is one of the top image quality monitors ever released. I paid $700 for one of those NECs right when they came out, and it was a 20 inch IPS.
Mine didn't have any of the issues I've seen reported with these panels such as a buzzing noise from the monitor (which my NEC IPS did have), or minimum brightness being too high. I think mine goes to around 80cdm2 at minimum brightness.
Having said that, I might sell my 27Q anyway. I don't have 20/20 vision and was using a 27" 1080p before this. For my viewing distance and eyesight, I prefer the larger pixels/text personally. Now I'm trying to figure out what I can sell a perfect 27Q for without taking too much of a loss. I'll post pictures of everything if anyone is interested.
The smallest pixel pitch I can handle is 1920x1200 on a 24" which is .27, this one is .23 Some people like smaller pixel density, but it's just not for me.
