If you get dead pixels, you can now return to an actual store wink.gif

For $400, with an actual warranty and DVI/VGA/HDMI inputs, it's not a bad deal.

I can't tell from that link that they are Korean monitors... I did a search on gmarket and danawa.co.kr for EQD brand and hair dryers only show up.

Yes a review would be nice and does this Monitor have a color calibration OSD option?

http://eqdcorp.com/monitors-27 have a look around there



if you go to where to buy on that site NewEgg shows up, but on newegg there isn't any products by EQD being sold yet, wonder if a deal is still being finished. Maybe this could be the toe hold for getting these monitors competitively priced here in the states.

It says it has VGA, DVI and HDMI, then it states to achieve the ful 2560x1440, you need to use display port on both ends?

Looks iffy to me.

You will enjoy the high quality resolution on the 27" LED Monitor. The fast response time will reduce blur. You have a VGA, DVI, and HDMI inputs on your new monitor. To achieve the maximun resolution of 2560 x 1440, a display port must be used on both ends.

Also, no where does it state it is an IPS panel.

If you guys want it, get it now. The moment it begins to sell in the US the price will shoot and it will soon cost as much as the competition.

Or a bunch of resellers will get in on this, and they will quickly be driven down do the ~$330 area. Similar to what happened with the imports.

(Imports went from like $330 to $250.. Not including shipping)
