Do you guys trust the Korean 1440p monitors?

I'm heavily considering getting this monitor

The monitor looks good and has a lot of good words being said about it, but I'm still leery. Do you guys personally trust them enough to buy one?

Me? no

then again I'm paranoid so I don't trust a lot of things for really strange reasoning.

Personally I prefer to pay extra and buy something from the US with a proper warranty that doesn't require me to ship the thing to Korea if something goes wrong with it. It's not that I don't trust the monitors or the sellers. Thousands of people have bought those monitors, I'm sure some of those people will chime in, two of my coworkers have and love them, so I have no doubt whatsoever that they're fine.

Two of my friends have one. They love them. If I had a PC that could take advantage of 1440p, I would have one too.

This is the problem. First you get import tax prices (at least here in the UK, not sure about US) and if there's a problem you have potentially 1) language barrier and 2) much more complicated scenario for returning.

I had to RMA 2x 1440p monitors from European manufacturers, which I bought in the UK. I think if we were talking internationally, I would've gone insane.

You have to weight up the cost you save from Korea vs. import tax + ease of mind for returns.

Cant you just buy a Samsung monitor in your home country? Maybe look around and see if they have that model.

I don't think its worth it getting something shipped like that, plus taxes, plus who knows if it'll get messed up in shipping.

Squaretrade. It makes everything pretty simple from what I've heard.

I would say yes only if you are getting one that can overclock to 120hz and have a sli/crossfire setup were you can take advantage of it.Since that is the only way to get a 1440p ips monitor at 120hz. If your just getting one for 60hz I would rather get a more trust worthy brand.
