    What's the point of a "stackable" monitor like this without VESA mounting?

    I'd be impressed if it wasn't 4 sided

    One sided perhaps, take curved to the next level with an elliptical screen? Would certainly be an eye catching, unique selling point.

    Stick some decent speakers on the sides and you might be onto something.

    Ah good old AOC and their idea of "borderless".
    I've got an AOC i2367, which is "borderless" on 3 sides. Except it isn't. The frame may only be a couple of mm, and the front of the panel may run edge to edge, but there's a nice black border between the edge of the display and the frame.

    SPRUNG! I *knew* there was someone out there calling for speakers on monitors but in all my years I've never actually found the evidence!

    No VESA, no purchase.

    Ahahahaha! I thought the same! Who the hell spends 300 pounds on a monitor but does not have 40 quid for a decent pair of speakers?! And who in the hell is satisfied with monitor speakers?! They always sound rubbish.
