    I couldn't work with that off centre stand. The thought of it make me twitch.

    I don't understand why these premium monitors never seem to come with VESA mounts anymore...

    ah so bezel now means frameless.... sorry but that black border is a frame, it's just not so obvious

    That off set sucks, so does that round stand! Give me good old straight lines and edges just like a monitor has on its bezel less (cough) upper section.

    Do these companies think we are stupid or something?

    Love the visually appealing offset stands ... but only if they do a leftie and a rightie so that I can make a symmetrical pair.

    This is what happens when Acer try and make something look premium.

    Re: News - Acer announces a pair of 'frameless' monitors for Q4 2014

    Am I missing something or are they are touting a "frameless" design then sticking a thick border along the bottom of the screen?

    I also agree about the offset stand... yuck!

    I like the look. Although I do agree, it's not frameless, borderless.

    These are frameless monitors, but this is fiction...

    I think the monitor companies don't understand what's being 'wanted' - just to clarify:-

    PEOPLE WANT THE PICTURE TO SPAN RIGHT TO THE EDGES WITH NO BEZEL OR BLACK EDGING.

    Why do the manufacturers always change the stands when they release a model with different sizes, I want an eyefinity setup with a larger middle screen and two smaller on the sides, but I cant find a matched set with the same stand!

    No VESA, no interest. I want to fill an Obutto R3volution triple monitor mount.

    The off-center stand would drive me crazy too.

    I'd find the off centre stand useful as I often put stuff under the monitor, just pieces of paper or CD's or something like that. Probably good space for my phone too.
    It'd be good if it had a USB charging port also.

    Did you just use the word ergonomic for a monitor with no height adjustment and no VESA mount?
