Not thread crapping. This is a beautiful monitor. Not that I could afford it. I suspect prices will fall significantly over the next year and would not be surprised if it's at or below 600.00.
Why? Because of eventual economic pressure. South Korea is making a ton of money off A- 8 bit IPS panels on ebay. The same ones they use in the 27" apple cinema display. Yes. They are stripped down and manf warr is a joke when considering the shipping distance. But once I heard that Square Trade would warranty them (50.00 3 years) and if damaged I thought I could count on Pay Pal to set things right - I bit.
Let me add there are other reputable sellers and I have nothing to do with this person other than purchasing a monitor. Bought on a Satuday and at my door Tues morning. No customs issues. No burnt pixels and colors are amazing. My first IPS. I'd say it has 90% of the cinema display image. Now ymmv and I'm not suggesting you forget about the U2711. It's beautiful and has a domestic warranty and easy return policy. There's a lot to be said for that. I wish I could afford 849.00 as easily as I can gamble 375.00. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
I would imagine that it's shortly inevitable that someone will strike a deal with some N Korean manufacterer and start importing these en masse.... and that's when the price of the U2711 will come crashing down (along with every other 27 inch IPS).
