I'm currently using the AOC 2243W a very lovely monitor. 1 little niggle is that because it is very thin that it slightly wobbles if you knock the desk.

This is the question.
The bezel is nothing special, it just appears tiny when it is powered off, which gives it a better chance of Wife Approval.

My only concern is that it is a rectangle with rounded corners, it might be infringing Apples IP.

I don't know in Europe, but here in Brazil, it doesn't even comes close. It's an office display.... It's usually not good for playing or photos....

No DVI inputs? If this is so then it's poor they left out this connector. Instead they added a vga input? Who uses vga these days?

The price looks interesting, but I really dislike this borderless cheat. Otherwise, it would be a great display to stack 3 of them for simracing / shooters.

Exactly, especially when you compare it to all the marketing bs:

This bezel is no thinner than on my good 4-year old HP screen.

And that folks is why we have these wonderful forums ^^

It's almost verging on a con tbh.

Those pics on the box are total BS, i mean is that even allowed?

Feel sorry for the people that fell into that crap.

Maybe someone saw those pics and rushed out to buy 3 of them. OUCH.

If enough people complain to the appropriate trading standards department, the company will be forced to alter their marketing slogans.

The word 'borderless' is certainly open to interpretation, because all panels/screens have a border...otherwise we won't know where to put the recycle bin.
