Yes but feel much better about buying from them than from an ebay seller.
Thats my only gripe with the Catleaps etc, lack of reputable seller and reliable warranty I don't have to jump through hoops for (that's my opinion on it).

Though the dell has better inputs, warranty, and casing they do both use the same panel so I can only imagine what a winner dell would have if they just eased up on the coating a little. I haven't seen the U2713 in person yet so I can't really comment on that.
Why do you all keep perpetuating that they're all the same panels?
Most of the Korean ones use the same panel as the Apple Cinema display which is a different panel from the Dell.None
of the Korean monitors use the same panel as the Dell afaik.
The 8bit models with glossy or matte use the LM270WQ1
-SD** panels; (same panels as the Apple iMac and Cinema displays - which uses the LM270WQ1-SDA2 to be specific), while the 10bit (8-bit+FRC same method of faking 10bit colour as the Dell) variation from Crossover uses the LM270WQ1
The U2711 is the LM270WQ2
-SLA1 while the U2713 uses the new LM270WQ3.
