Here you go...and OMG, they are like $316-330 shipped now...WOW. That is a ridiculous steal!!!! Again, these use the same LG-manufactured IPS panels found in the Dells and Apple Cinema Displays. They also have NO ANTI-GLARE COATING. This makes the picture quality THAT MUCH BETTER.
Only difference is these use A- grade panels that may have dead pixels...but if you pay the $20-30 extra to have them check...there goes that advantage. I have to say, my Achieva Shimian 2560x1440 IPS from eBay is arguably the best hardware investment i've made in the last 2-3 years. It is THAT impressive. These Koreans aren't messing around with their high-res IPS displays, man.
Here is what I have, the Achieva Shimian:Achieva Shimian, 27" IPS, 2560x1440p @ $316
Here is the other variant, the Yamakasi Catleap...same thing, just higher stand:Yamakasi Catleap, 27" IPS, 2560x1440p @ $329
It says they ship worldwide. Be sure to message them about zero dead pixel policy....they are both reputable sellers here on OCN, lots of people have bought from them. Thank me later.

Also, does anyone know at what time exactly the 690's will be available on the May 7th date? Will it be like the May 3rd launch, where it's available at exactly 6 a.m., or will it just be like any other day at retail (ie. when the store opens)?
I'm on a bunch of other forums, and someone else posted the link a few hours ago.Edited by jcde7ago - 5/4/12 at 4:56pm
