Summary: The photo shows speaker bar between rectangular screen and oval stand. This is not included and does not exist as an accessory for purchase. Otherwise this is a fine monitor. The latest browser releases are starting to support all element page scaling, but less dense DPI of the 275T (compared to 30" panels) assures more distant viewing of all applications. You won't have to resort to reading glasses. DUAL link DVI is not required.
Summary: So far I have been happy with the monitor. I had a 22" and going to 27" has been great. I originally looked at 30" but went with the 27" because of cost. If I would have a waited until now I could get a 30" for the same price. I have experienced some issues where the display will randomly just turn some weird colors. This has happened on startup also. I just restart the computer again and the issue goes away.
