Looking for a 27" 1440p monitor

Hey guys!
I've had my LG 23" for a while now and wanted to upgrade for gaming purposes mostly and I was looking for 27" 1440p monitor.
Went looking locally and found the Dell U2715H for about 2800NIS (~700USD).
Asked some friends of mine and they reminded me about all those cheap Korean monitors on ebay, so I went to take a look on those and found a couple that I've liked from who seem to be pretty alright sellers: The X-STAR DP2710 Glossy and the QNIX QX2710, both for around 1100NIS each (300USD).

Anyone has any experience with the Korean displays (going to pick up the perfect pixel version of those on any case to avoid any hassle, the extra 30-50USD doesn't bother me if I can at least have that insured) or ordering from there? Watched Tek Syndicate's video on the two screens and it seemed to be pretty well over there on his end and I wanted to get some more info.

Also- anyone has any other recommendations for a 27" 1440p display?
Thanks

WYP our news guru did an excellent review of a QNIX 1440P monitor he bought a while back here -

http://forum.overclock3d.net/showthread.php?t=59707

I actually bought one from the same seller on ebay based on that review and still have it with zero dead pixels, I donated it to my dad as I got a different monitor but for the price they are fantastic and on par with any other PLS/IPS 1440P monitor

I myself grabbed a few of them for my younger brother, they were all quite decent. Even though I didn't pay for the perfect pixel version, all of them came without any dead pixels, though one did have some pretty bad light bleeding which was quite easily remedied.

Careful with some sellers on eBay and other sites, as there was a few people who thought they got a really good deal, but they were B grade panel. Most of them were still quite nice, however a few did get really bad light bleeding and a few dead/stuck pixels.

As Dice said I own a Qnix QW2710 Matte Black Screen and I absolutely love it. I still use it today as my main monitor.

Be very careful with sellers as they all have different pixel perfect policies. Some are really not pixel perfect.

There are some cheap 1440p non-korean panels though and even some with Freesync becoming available, so it pays to do some research.

Read your review and looked more carefully within the posts and I've seen a couple that stated something like it'll work no guarantee about dead pixels or stuff like that but I also found some of AccessoriesWhole's (the one you referred to in the review) posts, and they seem like the most reliable page to purchase this from.
Also- for other 1440p panels, took a little time to research for FreeSync capable monitors and found the Acer XG270HU. First thing is - I currently own an Nvidia GPU (although I was meaning to upgrade sometime soon), so FreeSync is useless now. Second, customs here are 35.7% for screens, looking on getting the Acer for 450$ from Amazon it'll end up being 610$, cheaper than the non-freesync I was looking at (the U2714H) but still, compared to around 410$ I could pay for the QNIX. Third - I had AMD cards in my first rig, then got one for my brother for his and for my cousin when he wanted to upgrade, and then I switched to Nvidia because AMD was kind of slacking, last year on March when I got my GTX 770 2GB. Recently I started working and am starting to save for a small upgrade other than the screen and the "new" R9 300 series really bummed me out. Think I'll stay green and go with a 980Ti rather than a Fury X when I upgrade, so FreeSync is really not on my mind right now.

Other than that thanks guys for the feedback I think I might order a QNIX next month.
