  • There are a few centimetres on each vertical bezel edge unused by the screen which is a shame as the physical bezel edge is very thin and would make for superb triple screen setups if the screen actually went to the very edge…

    Mirek (Amazon) - October 2016

  • The bezels are thin on the side…
    Thom J (Amazon) - September 2016
  • There is a sheen a couple of inches in diameter in the two bottom corners as though the viewing angle is very narrow, if you look at them head on they disappear…
  • The look of the screen and body is really nice…
    Ben (Amazon) - July 2016
  • The bezel is razor thin, yes.
    Citizen (Amazon) - June 2016
  • Without the help of the drivers given with the monitor the chances of you getting the intended output resolution is slim…
  • It really does not feel too big due to the compact footprint and height…
    Toshman (Amazon) - July 2016
