It's tempting, but I would find it hard to use other computers when owning one of these, so I'll pass.

I'll pick one up if I can ever get one from somewhere other than eBay.

They're all trashy actually.

Same panel, different but all cheap mainboards, different but equally crappy stands.

Oh, and the panels are practically defects. The panels are ones that don't pass LG's quality assurance and get sold off to third party manufacturers.

By the way. The Achieva might as well be a trashy variant too. It's the much lesser known counterpart to the Yamakasi Catleap, which hit big with certain communities because a certain production run of the Catleaps could be overclocked.

Does third party warranty cover this? Like Square Trade if I bought this overseas?

Nope.



I don't find the Shimian's stand to be that bad, though I have heard poorly of the Catleap and PCBank's stands. The Crossover 27Q seems to have the best build quality with a stable stand though.

The panels may not meet the standards of Apple, Dell, HP, etc but these monitors are still very nice IPS monitors with excellent color reproduction and viewing angles. That said, it's still a gamble and you may or may not get a noticeable flawed or defective product.

In addition, shipping back to Korea for a return is extremely expensive >__> I heard there is one eBay seller that may cover return shipping though.
