If you are asking about the Korean Monitors they are all pretty much the same in quality,

 

They dont have 30" of those monitors though. I never saw any of them if there are.

This is what i know. Someone can correct me if i am wrong.

 

These panels are produced by LG. These are the panels rated A-. If these panels were rated A+ companies like Dell or Apple buy them. When a panel is rated A- companies like Crossover or Yamakasi purchase them. They are the EXACT SAME PANELS used in Apple Thunderbolt monitors. Now i dont know what the standart is for having an A+ but these panels dont differ in quality as far as we know.

 

They are also cheap beacuse they are produced in Korea and there is not a US or any other company out there selling them for profit. You directly buy these monitors from Korea. Look for example few posts above someone mentioned that these are sold in Microcenter but 100$ more expensive.

 

Also these Yamakazi and other monitors only have Brightness Control and power button. Thats it. The panel has more buttons but they have NO functions. And last but not least these monitors only have a Dual DVI input. No HDMI or anything else. Hence this is a reason why they are cheap as well.

 

There are models with HDMI and stuff but they cost more.

Oh, ok. I'll get one of these. I don't need the extra inputs and features and color accuracy, so this is perfect.

I hope you dont get a bad panel and blame me later on ;)))

 

People did have some problems now and there but I believe they all evantually got a replacement product.

 

Go ask around those threads of the monitors and ask for more people. :)

Actually, they do have 30" monitors and they are 1600p instead of 1440p. They are the LEONIDAS monitors, however, the quality of the 27" are better.

And OP.. Everything you'll ever need to know about these lines of monitors can be found in this thread.

Edit : Here's the link for the one MicroCenter sales. $399.99 + Tax. AURIA 27" LED 2560x1440p

Haha cool name :)

 

Good to know that there are 30" models. They are almost twice the price though as far as I see so I am still glad to get the 27" one...

So it looks like the korean monitors are ok quality, but I don't like the idea of messed up colors whose settings can't be changed for games, and I don't like the backlight bleed. For $150 more (korean ips is $350 for a crossover with 120v ac adapter vs $500 for a used u2711 on ebay), I'd rather know that I'm getting a good quality monitor than get one with problems with uniformity and colors. My only concern is the input lag, will it be noticeble? I just wish that dell made a korean style ips, with just dvi, no scaler, glossy, and maybe even 120hz like the catleap b revision did. I found my answer; the input lag won't be a big concern: http://www.overclock.net/t/983761/u2711-for-gaming/0_100
