What Zephon13 is saying is correct. To my knowledge (unless something has changed), the U2410 uses a panel made by LG. This is a 'korean panel.' The problem is that most people don't know that, and only associated the 'korean panel's' with the achievas/shimians that are all the rage currently.
The achieva/shimians are the panels that were rejected by Apple/Dell/(Insert other company) because they did not meet the quality standards these companies have in place. Those panels were then sold to Achieva/Shimian/Overlord/etc, who began selling them and shipping them internationally via ebay from resellers inside Korea
Does that make the point more clear? My apologies for misleading you to believing that the U2410 panel is not manufactured in Korea, because it is.
edit: I do not know the 'full history' behind these companies. I'm sure there are others much more knowledgeable than I, and I welcome them to correct me if need be.

Do you agree with the implications that there are no monitors made in Korea that are of comparable quality as the one in this deal, not even ones made by LG?

I have 2 Achieva Shimians that ran me a total of $550. Can't tell the difference between these and the thousand dollar Apple Cinema display at Micro Center.

Also, there is more to a monitor than the display. The quality of the capacitors alone have the ability to shorten the life of the whole unit as well as affect the visual output throughout its life.
There is also the circuitry design itself, which is specific to the manufacturer. That design is not just for bells and whistles, its also key to proper display of the full gamut.
I am not saying not to buy the cheap Korean brands, just that there is a difference. Whether a buyer values it, well, that's up to the buyer.

Dell, Apple, HP, Catleap, Shimian, Crossover, Overlord. All use Korean IPS panels made by LG. Is that clear enough?

|nsg1000||i think another good thing about this monitor is that it has the extra warranty. I had two Dell 23 monitors I bought around 2.5 years ago and got a 2 year warranty. One of them developed a red pixel line going from top to bottom. I was very disappointing because at the time I paid close to $300 for each one of those monitors at the time. Anyways I ended up buying two korean crossover 27 monitors for $300 each and couldn't be happier, but if I didn't I definitely would have bought these due to the IPS and the 3 year warranty (even though they are only 24 inches). You roll the dice when buying one of the korean monitors, you may end up lucky, or in some cases you may get one that has problems. My justification for getting the crossovers was that at $300 a piece even if one goes bad I can buy another one and still not reach the price of a dell 27 IPS.|

|ehuntsch||what makes this monitor cost so much when compared to similar size monitors for $150?|
|10-03-2012 03:01 PM|
Great monitor color is spot on, I have both the 2410 and 2412, the color on the 2410 is immaculate

All panels are produced by LG in Korea, tested on the line and quickly graded - not to say that grade would not change after it was left on for over 10 minutes

I paid $285 for the Achieva Shimian qh270-lite and love it. Maybe some IPS glow in the lower right but only noticeable with brightness set to high and on a solid black screen (and there are plenty of complaints and pictures from Apple Cinema purchases that are worse).
ebay qh270-lite from red cap, green sum or ta_planet
