The Designo ML Series combines style with practicality,
not really, see below. And that o on the end of design! IT MUST BE ITALIAN OR SOMETHING EXOTIC AND COOL!

featuring a sleek geometric design and a super-slim profile.
It is kinda square.. but once you get up close or from other angles not really. Also, instead of having an internal PSU on the back that fit well within the stand's footprint, now has a large external power brick for you to find a place to hide!

The unique double ring stand enables easy tilt and swivel adjustments,
because no other display has the capability to tilt and swivel at the same time with an ugly stand!

while the glossy piano black-finished bezel sports LED touch buttons that present a clean and seamless appearance
Buttons that provide no form of feedback in any way whatsoever and about five billion fingerprints and constantly visible dust unless you clean it every single ******* day.

If my Acer X223W sitting on this wall mount here had an IPS panel it would be at least 50 times better than that piece of shit ASUS and many other displays on the market currently.
Does that miserable display even have a proper VESA mounting point&hardware with it's 'slim' case? (also _completely_ removable stand) (I am actually not aware if all of the super slim displays still include mounts or vertical vs horizontal connectors but having horizontally mounted connectors make a 'slim' display completely useless.)
Having an internal PSU does not have to take up that much space. They do not need to make them external.

Glossy bezels suck as much as glossy screens do but guess what.. its what manufacturers think we want!

And I personally hate 1080 screens.

I know. I have been spoiled by the matte case and panel of my cheap 22" 16:10 acer and the 1920x1200 res of the panel in my asus G2S-A1.

I don't know why you guys are bad mouthing Asus monitors so much. Sure, they're aimed only at the average consumer but they are really decent displays for decent cash.

Both my VW266H monitors at work are perfect (no dead pixels) and 1920 x 1200.

My VE276Q has amazing brightness and contrast (1920 x 1080).

Asus monitors aren't meant to woo hardcore enthusiasts but they are PERFECT in size and cost for a coder who needs lots of area.

Exactly.
I would like to upgrade to a new 120hz + monitor, but Can't find anything I like as well as my Samsung 275t.

Also, who gives a ____ about how thin a monitor is... We want thinner bezels, not thinner screens.
