Edge-to-edge glass is the new "in" thing, as witnessed on such beautiful devices as the Motorola RAZR M. ViewSonic's hoping to grab a little bit of that attention with its new VX70Smh-LED series of LCDs. The company just introduced the 27" VX2770Smh-LED, 23" VX2370Smh-LED and 22" VX2270Smh-LED, all of which boast a frameless bezel, SuperClear IPS panel and a Full HD (1080p) screen resolution. These also pack 178-degree viewing angles, base mounted speakers and a host of video inputs, including HDMI and DVI. The 27" VX2770Smh-LED and 23" VX2370Smh-LED will be available in early October for respective ESPs of $319 and $189. A 22" version within this Series (VX2270Smh-LED) is expected to be available in early December for an ESP of $159. Not too shabby for monitors of this stature, huh?

Isn't that a frame around the whole screen? I don't get it...

Yeah, the term confused me at first as well. It means that the glass is edge-to-edge, but there is still a thin bezel beneath the glass. I don't really see the point, aside from having a thin bezel. You can have a thin bezel without edge-to-edge glass...

The 27" for $319.00 is good deal.

I have a ViewSonic 22" screen that I won here at HotHardware years ago and it's a very nice screen,....quality built and great color too.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I'm a bit torn in the middle. This monitor is great, especially just having an IPS panel is great, but for gamers like me it's hard to get away from 120hz after you've started using them.

I guess I don't understand the term frameless. I was expecting to see something different.
