In addition, the MX Series presents an edge-to-edge frameless screen with bezel thickness of just 0.8mm. This subtle but elegant design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which provides a sturdy base for the monitor. Outshining the competition, MX Series has already garnered accolades at the 2012 Good Design Awards and won a Best of CES 2013 award.
