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.

They sell for about $180 in korea I believe. The price is mainly just for shipping, believe it or not. I have 0 dead pixels on mine

I certainly will. I still may wind up getting the Catleap instead, but the LG is so much bigger than what I have now it should do the trick just fine.

with the catleaps and shimians, does anyone know if you can color correct using software/hardware like spyder or color munki? seeing as we are photographers that is important to me - and in video reviews on youtube people are saying the buttons in the back of the monitors don't really do anything.

thanks for any help you can provide. :)

Are the catleaps IPS-type monitors?

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

If you do buy one of these on eBay be sure to read the entire auction text. Many of these are Apple rejects for too many dead pixels. Apple only uses the "A" grade version which can't have any dead pixels. Almost all of the ones I just looked at are "A-" grade rated which means up to 1 dead pixel in the center area and up to 5 dead pixels on the edges. Most people won't notice a few dead pixels but you should know what you're getting before you buy. Don't expect an Apple qaulity monitor unless it's rated as "A" grade or they guaratee no dead pixel and a full money back return.

I have a Dell U2412 and it's great. I would love to get a 27" IPS monitor but I just bought a 5D MkIII last night and I'm seriously in the dog house right now. If I bought anything else today I'd be thumbing through the "L" section of the Yellow Pages before the day's over. :confused: :cool:
