Dreamseller is good to do business with you can order the product but before they ship it out ask dream to inspect it for dead pixels and he can even send you photos of the screen if there are to much backlight bleed or dead pixels you can have him test another panel. that's how i ended up getting a perfect pixel 434k without actually paying the price increase
5k 60hz already exist you must use 2 displayport 1.2 cables in order to drive it I own the dell one the price varies from like 1,008-1800 I would wait and get the HP Z27q 5k panel on provantage its on sale for like $830
Dell UP2715k 5k Panel
Dell is releasing an 8k Panel 32 inch for $5000 in march if you are in the market for cutting edge but from my personal experience I would say to really benefit from these ultra high resolutions we need a 39-55 inch screen to take advantage because in windows the scaling sucks so you have to use something other than %100 percent scaling just to see the picture when reading text
so food for thought 4k 5k 8k its worth it if you have it on a 40 inch screen or above 27-32 inch is pushing it
Honestly, both the Wasabi Mango and Crossover have cons and benefits, I previously used the WM430/400 and had to return it due to dead pixels, some weird color shift issue with the panel but that wasn't the only issue, the color reproduction seems off, I'm suspecting it wasn't factory color calibrated since most WM users had to set their own color profiles, anyways long story short, I got the crossover 430 and the experience I had so far with it was really good, other than occasionally hearing static sounds from the monitor, but then again I had the same issue with the WM, regarding the flicker issue, it still happens from time to time, but I'm fine with it since it happens only maybe once per week, back to the color calibration on the Crossover, it was near dam perfect, being factory-calibrated, the colors really popped and look natural compared to the WM (I had both during that time, the reds either looked really dull or artificial on the WM), too bad they discontinued the crossover 430 due to many complains, the only problem I have so far with the crossover is a dead pixel near the bottom and it mysteriously came up after I did some room shifting.
Again, this was a year ago, the newer WM models could've have better improved panels and features, anyways that's my experience. Hope it helped anyone of you out there.
