It's a waste of money...

Korean variants (Qnix QX2710 & X-Star DP2710 - same monitor) are 120Hz PLS panels and you can get them for $270 on eBay from Green-Sum or Dreamseller.

That leaves you with $330 for other computer component upgrades, or you could just buy two Korean monitors for less than the price of one LG.

I think its smarter to buy one in america with a good warranty and return policy.

But id rather pay $750 for a VP2770, or just get a Asus PB278Q for less.

You're right, I just don't trust cheap brand
I already got the VP2770, need something with smaller stand, Asus PB278Q button not working after a while, so many noted this issue in their review at amazon.

You can buy from an American based company for $330 and get a 3 year Square Trade warranty on the monitor for a grand total of $380.

I could buy two 27" 1440p 120Hz monitors for the price of your one monitor.
