The IPS LCD Revolution

I definitely want one or two of these!

I am now the proud owner of three awesome high resolution (2560×1440) 27″ IPS LCDs, and I paid less than a thousand dollars for all three of them.


How is this possible? You can thank Korea. All three of these monitors were ordered from Korean eBay vendors, where a great 27″ IPS LCD goes for the equivalent of around $250 in local currency. They tack on $100 for profit and shipping to the USA, then they’re in business. It’s definitely a grey market, but something is clearly out of whack, because no domestic monitor of similar quality and size can be had for anything under $700.
