The cheapest korean 30" on ebay right now is a Yamakasi Sparta for $500 shipped.
It would be cheaper to get that with a 3yr Square Trade warranty than this Monoprice monitor.
Although I'm looking forward to buying Monoprice's 27" IPS.
Excuse my ignorance, but why buy this when you can get a 30" LG IPS Q5 for about $100 less on ebay? It's probably the same Korean made IPS panel.
Yamakasi Sparta, and Crossover 30Q5 are CCFL lit, this one is LED. Worth noting.
To compare fairly, you need to look at the Yamakasi Leonidas. Same-ish price, but american company for warranty issues.
