Great upgrade. Wish I picked this first!

Good size and I hope to get another two or three of these monitors for a tri screen set up. Small bezels are important for me as I wanted less distance between the screens.
There is no bezel per say on the screen, it is completely flat (very nice design in my opinion). there is still a small gap where the screen ends, the actual image does not go right up the edge of the screen. it is still substantially smaller than a lot of other monitors.
Image quality is great coming from a 1600x900 screen. Monitor is quite cheap considering it is an IPS. Albeit it is not the best IPS screen out there it is still great to look at.
Minor problem with glare though, does get a bit annoying but adjusting the blinds can help sort it out. Great viewing angles too.
If I was to describe this to someone who has not seen an IPS before my best analogy would be -
Imagine you walked into a phone store, and they have a nice glossy picture of the screen on the phones rather than actually turning them on. The image this screen puts out is as vivid and bright as that.
Only downside is there is not height adjustment which is a shame, only tilt.
For the mean time I would also like to use my PC and PS3 on a single screen at the same time. This is great as it has a HDMI slot and a VGA port. Swapping inputs is easy with the buttons on the side and a headphone jack provides the audio for when I game on the PS3.
+++++ Sleek design, no bezels, good picture quality
-- gloss may annoy some users, no height ajustment
