That's very true, but the Korean IPS monitors look very attractive when the cheapest 'quality' 2560x1440 monitor in Australia costs around $700. For that price, you can get 2 Korean models. Say, for argument's sake, they each last a year and a half. That's 3 years of total usage for the same price (buying another when the first one dies) as what companies like ASUS and Dell offer.

no one knows how long these will last since they are so new, they are all made by LG which makes screens for apple/dell/hp. Dont think they make it for Eizo or NEC but those are really not gaming screens
Screen grading varies from B+ to A- screens while the three big companies are A+ panels ( even A+ are not all perfect) but i rather bet on that than anything lower.

some "pixel perfect" guarantee's have come with 1-2 stuck pixels

I dont like how they have a powerbrick seems cheap, various brands have various flimsy stands, i think they are getting better with the quality of stands, and are now offering AG coated one, I CANNOT STAND GLOSSY

I own 4 ZR30W one U3011 and one U2410 all my monitors have zero stuck or dead pixels minimal backlight bleed
one of the 4 started developing horizonal lines,
Dell has a slight pinkish blotch top right only noticable when viewed on a completely white background
I can tell you HP warranty really was no questions asked they one day shipped a new monitor to me and paid for shipping for old monitor to return to them which all I did was drop it off at fedex and they did the rest.

for the ease of mind I would pay $300 extra for something with longer warranty 3-5 years and trusted company. It would be rather hard to contact customer support from a korean brand. RMA almost non existant.

All of these issues are way overblown. No warranty support? Buy a SQUARE TRADE warranty. You don't need to pay $300-500 extra for a solid warranty. Afraid of getting tons of dead pixels and backlight bleed? Buy from a reputable seller, COMMUNICATE with the seller and do some research seriously. It's not hard. There is absolutely nothing about name brand monitors that is worth 200-300% extra.

And if you can't appreciate 120 Hz 1440p that korean monitors offer, you are on the wrong website.

I've had my Yamakasi Catleap for well over 1 year now and it's still goin strong. Awesome value monitors, I just grabbed my second a Qnix QX2710 PLS which overclocks to 120Hz as well. Neither of the monitors have a single dead pixel or any bleed (I must have gotten really lucky). Both monitors only cost me just over 600 AUD. That's cheaper than any of the brand name Dell or Asus monitors here in Australia.

Not everyone can get Square Trade, there are more countries than "america".

And barely ANY panels can get 120HZ at 1440p Korean wise. You have to find the special 2B panels from yamakasi, which are around $550 and almost impossible to get, not to mention that almost costs the same as a Dell panel and isn't guaranteed to get 120HZ anyways. I have a Crossover 27Q, but your post just reeks stupid to me.

Qnix and xstar PLS monitors do overclock and are not that expensive, fortunately.

Not that there isn't plenty of reason to go Dell if your situation calls for it - especially if you need the reliability.

I don't believe they're all made by LG. LG doesn't make PLS panels, that would be Samsung. My Asus uses a PLS panel which I believe are better panels for gaming. They may not be as accurate for color but they allow more light through and are faster responding.

The stands & the power blocks on all these Korean monitors don't compare with the ones one the Dell, Asus, & LG. Can you raise and lower ANY of the stands on the Koreans. Never mind turn it vertically. If they cheap on these parts. What else are the cutting corners on.

Pay extra for a warranty, get 0 dead pixel warranty, buy from a reputable dealer. You don't need any of these if you buy a name brand. I have NO dead pixels and NO back light bleed with this Asus PB278Q.

Yes, every 27" 2560x1440 IPS panel is made by LG. Samsung makes the PLS panels like in your Asus. Backlight bleed can happen on any panel, I've heard complaints of it on the Asus. My catleap has none. It also has next to no input lag unlike just about every high end 27" IPS/PLS including your Asus.

I've had my catleap for about a year now and so far so good. I can't complain.

Do some research before you start calling people stupid. Your post is just offensive and misinformed.
