A Fantastic Buy for an IPS Monitor... (with a few minor issues)

Summary: So... I too was fooled by the borderless design it is visibly borderless as shown (i.e it doesn't have a "plastic" large black frame around the screen. It is a thin one.), but the "screen" itself does have a black frame the content will not go all the way to the edges..(If that is what you are looking for this is not it...) The stand looks like it is made out of some nice materials.
Summary: I purchased this as a second monitor, I didn't want to spend a lot of money, so this is just what I was looking for. Nothing fancy, but it does the job. I like the fact that it is thin and the stand is narrow so it takes up very little desktop space other than being wide(screen); it looks beautiful! I like the fact that it is borderless.
Summary: The monitor does really well, It has a very small bezel. I love this thing, I can use it right on the table or with the stand. The back looks metal but it is unfortunately painted metal. Still pretty good. Picture quality is great. Speakers are disappointing.
Summary: Cheap IPS monitor. I'd probably suggest the cheap Dell IPS' screens, but this has worked fine. Some fuzzing happens, but this thing has been bounced around a lot, so I blame myself. Gorgeous monitor, worked fine for games. Beat Crysis 2 and players on the StarCraft 2 ladder with it.
Summary: I read a few reviews off Amazon before i chose this monitor. I was disappointed by the fact that it is not virtually border less but i knew it beforehand and knew what to expect.It also does not have a VESA mount but i didn't need it. It does have excellent color contrast and a variety of connection options. I read about the bleed from the corners but its negligible and not noticeable at all unless you want to find it. I'll recommend it for the price.
Summary: Great monitor for the price. So far so good.
Pros: Used for over 1 month so far, works great and no dead pixels. Bright Clear Screen. This was the only 23", IPS monitor that would fit in my computer desk ( monitor is 23" as measured from one corner of the illuminated part of the screen to the other) .
Cons: Wobbly stand, but works OK if monitor is lightly supported on one of the top corners (mine sits in a recess in my computer desk, and is supported lightly by the edge of the recess). No DVI connection. Controls on back of the monitor (Hard to reach when monitor is in a recess like mine). No labels on front of monitor for rear controls.
