"According to Acer, the frame is actually 0.8-inches thin" if you follow the link you'll find that Acer says that the frame is 0.08 inches.
Only out by a factor of 10 Toms, keep up the good work!

now we are getting somewhere! The problem with bezzels is that you always have 2 of them side by side, but at .08" we are finally getting to the point where it would not be as big of a deal. Personally I would like to see 1/10th of an inch between screens, which would mean .05" bezel on each, but I understand that is asking for a lot. Surely we could make screens thicker and move some of the backlighting behind the screen instead of being edge lit?

The other issue is size, resolution, and price. Looking at some of these nice korean 'black market' monitors on ebay really has me itching as you can get a good 27-30" IPS monitor at 1440 resolution for well under $200. Sure, there is no warranty, but for the price you can pick up 4-5 of them before you approach the cost of an HP or Dell screen. I currently run a 28" monitor at home and duel 26" monitors at work, and I would love to have 3 screens at that size at a higher resolution... but I am not about to pay $1K+ for each of them.

MHL is just a HDMI cable with a few extra pins to charge the connected device, my understanding is that it is backwards compatible with standard HDMI devices, so you still have a single unified cable.

Does anyone know where to find accurate pictures of this monitor? All of the pictures I've seen show a clear gap between the image and the edge of the frame... much more than "0.08 inches". Even the picture in this article (and on Acer's website!) shows a clear gap.

When was that ever a reality? Firewire is the closest example that I can think of and they aren't even updating it properly anymore.

Yeah, would love a picture of this monitor.

Yeah. Click the link and look at the drawing on the last picture on the bottom of each product page, for a zoom in view. No idea why they don't just take a picture of their own amazing looking product. Probably not really in production.

Arrrghh...
1080p is for this years cellphones with 5" displays.. When can we expect backlit IPS 24" pc monitors with 2560x1600 (or higher) for a reasonable price, say $300, from Acer, Dell, Hp and the other respectable displaymakers?
Even the Nexus 10 sports 1600p @ 10" with a pricetab of $300 (and that includes the CPU, GPU, memory etc.)

they are already making curved screens , which will get rid these dual monitor B's (unless you run apps etc that need it) F1 companies run these curved screens in their simulators

Good luck with that but Apple does have a nice monitor if you have the bucks. 2560-by-1440 27"

If I wanted a 2560x1440 or 2560x1600 display, I'd get an el cheapo Korean model. They're more than worth the savings over the often several times more expensive models from popular companies.

I thought something was wrong with that figure, considering my budget Asus MS226H has a 0.8 inch frame, and it's certainly far more than "almost nothing".

If you look carefully at the picture of the monitor, it really has an 0,8 " frame; perhaps this news is 10 years old :)
