Great monitor, but has a flaw
I bought two of these monitors a few weeks ago and they've been pretty great so far (aside from one issue which is described below).
The best part in my opinion is the the thin bezel which is accurately depicted in the pictures above. In case anyone was wondering, the bezel (including the part of the screen that doesn’t display any picture) is about 1/4" (7/32" to be precise).
I was worried about the base not being stable when I bought the monitors, but the monitors are actually surprisingly stable.
The main reason I’m writing this review is to warn people about the backlight bleeding that is present on both of the monitors I received. The pattern of the backlight bleeding is exactly the same on both of the monitors, which leads me to believe that I didn’t just get unlucky. Under normal circumstances, the image quality is great. However, if there’s a dark image on the screen and I’m in a dark room (when watching a movie for example), the backlight bleeding is very apparent on the two upper corners of the screens. This isn’t a huge issue for me since I usually have a light on in the room, but I’m sure it might bother some people. This seems like a pretty common issue on budget IPS monitors, so I wouldn’t rule this monitor out unless you find a monitor that you know for sure doesn’t have this same issue.
