For me, Duty and taxes was about $40. Still, $287+$40 for 2560x1440 without a dead pixel is a STEAL.

A mere 45 hours after clicking the Buy It Now button, I have in my hands what I believe to be the best purchase I have made all year!

The model I purchased is the Achieva Shimian.

My total cost for the monitor was $313.14, I ended up paying $14.14 to the delivery guy ($10 of which was a processing fee).

The screen is perfect as far as I can tell. The stand is terrible, but I have a brand new wall mount for it, so that is of little concern to me. You will need a VESA 100x100 mount.

If it lasts me at least 2 years, I will be over the moon. A great deal IMHO.

Guys.. I'm REALLY bloody tempted here.. is there any that guarantee NO dead pixels and deliver to europe?
I really can't deal with a dead / stuck pixel at all, hell a spec of dust drives me MAD..

The ones I've seen so far have a 3 pixel policy and most of those are to the wrong side of the pond..

By wrong side of the pond do you mean the North America? As for dead pixel policies directly from Korea there are tons:
