Things I have read and the one I saw in person points to they are a good cheap IPS panel.

I checked it out in the store, they had it hooked up to a mac so i didnt really know what to do, but it looked awesome. bezel wasnt huge, color was awesome, it wasnt crazy thick. i was very impressed. i read probably 10 full reviews, 4 videos and read all the testimonials on microcenters site. im confidant with my purchase.

and for $250 shipped... cant beat that! and the guy says it has zero dead pixels and no bleeding!

Yea, and the dude who sold me the 470s sent me video and pics of them working perfect

Not saying you wont have a perfect product, just for that price I would be suspicious. Anybody going from a regular TN panel to a low tier IPS would be impressed anyways lol.

Samsung and Dell use Samsung panels. So unless LG and Apple use Samsung (irony alert) panels then I doubt they all use the same. LG are known to use crap Korean panels.
