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

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/111589684899?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    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)

    Ah - ok - makes sense. I've been tempted by this one myself - it just sits in my Amazon wishlist taunting me...

    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.

    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.
