Arrived in only 3 days with free shipping...

1920 1080. Panel is very thin. HDMI input with a 3.5mm audio jack for headphonesspeakers. Base is very small, but well built. 130 is a fair price
Contrary to what some of the people said in the reviews, the bezel is EXACTLY the same as what the pictures show, 0.5
Virtually no bezel makes it an excellent choice for Single Large Surface setups (AMD Eyefinity the nVidia equivalent). Very thin displays
Gorgeous display, very sharp and doesn't have a large foot print on my desk (which is pretty cluttered)
Excellent color reproduction
High gloss may look classy, but it's somewhat counter-productive. I can see everything behind me if there's any light in the room
No way to switch the panels into portrait mode--the stock stand doesn't support it and there are no VESA mount holes. Also, doesn't support DisplayPort--just VGA HDMI
Price, but worth it
HDMI and VGA only
No DVI port. The stand is somewhat springy, so the screen bounces around more than I would like. The stand doesn't telescope
