By the way, I thought I would revisit this thread since I made the leap.
I purchased a QNIX QX2750 from ebay after reading many many reviews on it from people who purchased one to overclock to a 96hz or 120hz display. I ordered it on ebay from a user named "accessorieswhole" who sells a LOT of them and is a well known seller. I purchased it for $310 and it is a 27" 2650 x 1440 IPS display. You do have to use a DVI-D cable I think (I don't believe it has HDMI or Displayport)
Here is the link to one of that seller's current auctions (Currently @ 319) http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-Matte-27-2560x1440-SAMSUNG-PLS-Panel-PC-Monitor-/130933173797?ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:US:3160
You CAN find it slightly cheaper from other sellers but many many people have reviewed this seller and he has a great reputation.
It shipped from China and arrived in only days. It was well packaged, had 0 dead pixels, and the color and quality of the display are beautiful. There are also lots of posted color profiles out there too. I'm very happy about the purchase, especially @ the price I got it for.
That seller also has other options like "Pixel Perfect" etc for his monitors claiming they inspect them and promise no dead pixels, etc for an additional fee. From extensive reading on the same forum that recommends this seller, most people believe it's just a snake-oil markup and not worth it.Edited by damelon - 12/4/13 at 11:10am
