    I suppose the usual places, Amazon or Overclockers would be a good place to start.

    AOC make good monitors with a bezel of 12mm, i have 3 2757 and for multiview is almost perfect, specially if a frame is hidden behind the other

    I have triple AOC i2769Vm monitors. My criteria were 27" IPS panel, displayport, and thin bezels. Be aware that there is black space on the panel that is slighty thicker than the bezels, so, while thin, the real bezel width is slightly wider than the physical bezel.

    They look nice, only thing that worries me is the 8ms response. Any issues ?

    The 8ms response time isn't something that I've noticed against my 27 ASUS which has a response time of 2ms gray to gray. I even had 2x Dell 24's with the 27 ASUS in the middle, it was annoying with the different sizes, but the image was consistent.

    Remember guys are running TV's which are close to double that response rate. And with the current monitor market changing so much with gsync/freesync , curved screens, VR headsets, if you want something more advanced I would hold off at least until the VR headset wars begin.

    edit:
    You may find this an interesting read http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2414h.htm,
    and it's the reason I previously said "If you're happy with 24" and 60hz". Gray to Gray response time is a great set of numbers for marketing, but more needs to be taken in to account for real world results. Read the " Lag " section of that linked page and you'll understand what I'm referring to.

    They look nice with those thin bezels!

    They're also great with the height adjustable stand, looking at your setup I now know why I'm getting a sore neck driving whilst looking down at my 27" screen.

    I use an ergo-tech monitor stand, not droop, solid as a rock. Quick release mounts
