"The heart of this monitor is the beautiful IPS (In-Plane Switching) LED panel made by LG in Korea. This is the same panel that is used in the 27" Apple Cinema Displays, which are famous for their stunning color reproduction and ultra-wide viewing angle. The IPS technology in this monitor helps produce this color and viewing angle, as well as increasing response time to 6 milliseconds, which is a critical factor for gaming."
^ it says the same panel but not necessarily the same quality control. If it's the same as all the other cheap $300-400 Korean monitors, then it's from the same production line as the panels used by LG/Dell/HP/Apple in their monitors, but these are basically all the rejects that didn't pass their QA standards (dead pixels, tint issues, etc). Doesn't mean it's not a decent quality monitor, just don't be so gullible that the 3rd party manufacturers magically saved $400 in production costs by switching to a cheaper bezel.
Even the Korean manufacturers selling these knock-off panels say they are A- grade, not A+ grade which is what Apple uses.
A- grade refers to the batch average quality: I.e. 50 A+ individual monitors + 5 A- individual monitors -> 55 A- batch monitors. There's element of luck by picking right seller, paying extra for "pixel perfect" TV's but you "could" walk out with a display that is equivalent or better in quality to Apple/Dell displays and only pay 40% of cost. You will be getting an inferior monitor in terms of display outputs which are generally less (i.e. only DVI) on Korean models.
