Just a follow up to let you know how I did.
I decided to go with a "full feature" monitor after all as I don't play games much anymore and really wanted to have a monitor that could be used besides the computer (should I want to).
I ended up getting a WECUBE 27" as it had speakers, HDMI, D-Sub, audio in/out, and Component inputs from seller goodforum on eBay.
It came with all cables and a universal plug adapter to use on the Korean style plug.
I asked for a perfect pixel and this is exactly what he sent...wrapped in bubble wrap on the outside of the box.
The monitor came in ONE DAY....from the other side of the world...and it shocked the hell out of me.
Anyways, it was a bit more expensive ($385) but I think it was worth it for me.
Oh, and I did not notice any problem with the refresh with the monitor...there was no ghosting or lag with an old game of mine even though the game was going at 100-200 fps.
Thanks a bunch for your input.
It really helped me choosing the right monitor for me.

The shipping was pristine. It arrived in the original box with all of the packaging you would expect from a normal monitor. Its not just a monitor wrapped in bubble wrap like i have seen from other sellers.
I have also heard that the more connections they add to the PCB (HDMI, D sub, etc), the more delay the signal has. This lite monitor has been tested at 6ms which is industry leading for IPS panels. If you are using this for gaming you cannot except anything with a higher response time.

I've been watching this monitor for a while, but the lack of an AD board and only DVI-D dual link input with no other features is holding me back (not to mention the possibility of dead/stuck pixels).
You can ONLY use this monitor with a PC equipped with a suitable video card.
I am debating whether to spring a little extra for one that includes HDMI and VGA inputs and speakers, OSD (on screen display), etc., so that, at the very least, the monitor can be used for other purposes.
How was your monitor packaged?
I have read good reviews on various forums for the seller "dream seller" who ships his monitors with extra bubble wrap, etc. and several have also commented on receiving their monitors with no dead/stuck pixels.
His price is $10 more, though.

|isingh||So does it matter what kind of PC with video card I have for the highest resolution ? I have this Dell ZINO HD with standard video cars and I am wondering if there will be an issue to get the highest resolution of 2560 x 1440 on this screen ? Any comments ?|

Since there is no on screen display to calibrate other than brightness, you have to use your graphics card to calibrate or just use an ICC profile(a windows calibration file)
1. Download my ICC profile and display profile changer
2. Right Pantone Huey 2 QHD270 0.icc, click install profile.
3. Open Display profile.exe and double click Pantone Huey 2 QHD270 0.
4. Enjoy perfectly calibrated color
