Pretty cheap price wise, but is it any good? I've been looking at getting an IPS to edit on since all I have now is my 13" laptop.

Personally, i'd go with the Yamakasi Catleap (or alternative similar korean monitor)

I love my IPS, I would never go back. I use a pair of 23" Dell though. 20" could be a little small (nowaday) :)

I wish I had known about these a few days ago. I've been trying to figure out how to get a monitor like the one on the 27" iMac without paying $900 for it (Samsung's price). So, I ordered the new Dell XPS One all-in-one that has a monitor similar to the iMac's.

If there's anything I don't like about the Dell, it's going back and I'm going to build a new PC around your monitor.


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

I've seen these, and was considering one before I got a new body, new bag, and 3 lenses.

The main reason I'm hesitant on the HP is because the resolution isn't great.

I guess I'm just going to wait a bit longer and order a Catleap. Anybody had any issues with dead pixels?

Somewhere else, I read that the Catleaps are actually the same panels as the high-end monitors except that the expensive systems have a zero-dead-pixels standard while the Catleaps may have a couple of broken pixels.

But, another person pointed out that the pixels are so small that a few dead ones are not a problem. The writer could only see his dead pixels when carefully looking for them.

Anyone know what these monitors sell for in Korea? If they are selling them for $320 with free shipping, I'd imagine that, if you could find a source, they might sell for $150 or so.

After reading through a bunch of threads about those Korean monitors, most people had zero issues with the shimian version.

No dead pixels on mine. It's a great monitor, makes transitioning from iMac at home to office PC easier.
