I have been seeing several NEW sets being sold for as low as USD$1400 on Ebay. Sellers are mostly from South Korea.

It is one of the few wide gamut 4K 31-inch screens out in market right now and they normally retail for close to USD$2000. So wondering if these sets on Ebay are legit?

I have seen several youtube videos and the screen is really awesome when running at native resolution 60Hz.

Any thoughts?

Are you in the US or not? Is the 31MU97-B actually different? (they are on Amazon for $1399 and even qualify for Prime: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OKSEVTY...TF8&colid=13JMU3YFWIP8P&coliid=I2IH5BK2OV8SK1)

Apart from the price, the only other thing holding me back is the applications. I use primarily FCPX, Lightroom and some Motion. Not sure if these are optimized for 4K resolutions yet. I'm still using my 24-inch Eizo Flexscan so if I do upgrade, this will be a major one.

So/California.
Apple withdrew /removed specific approval for this LG 4k/ monitor a few weeks ago. With no explanation or appology to those who've already purchased. Probably due to all the reported problems.
