Alright, after a lot of calls and follow ups, we have a more substantial update for this poll. We spoke with Dell and although they were willing to work with the group, they couldn't give us good enough pricing for us to agree to go with them (at least by Massdrop standards). We then followed up with Catleap and although their pricing was good, they couldn't guarantee pixel perfect monitors (their definition of "pixel perfect" only counts white/red pixels as defective so you can end up with black dead pixels and no support from the manufacturer). That policy was the same across the Korean A- panel brands. That said, we have been working closely with Monoprice to get their 2560x1440 27" listed for you. Prices will be similar to what you'd pay for a Catleap on ebay BUT these monitors will have ZERO dead pixels and Monoprice uses only A+ panels. We're still in the final stages of closing but if this goes through, it'll be one of the best situations possible for the group. You'll be able to get Apple quality, A+ panels at the korean monitor price point. We just would need to make sure that we have enough people lined up. Again, no promises yet, but we'll keep you updated as we get more info.

Unforunate that Dell couldn't give us a better price. :(<br /><br />I am not a big fan of the actual measured contrast ratio of these lower tier monitors.
