Shame about the lack of VESA mounts as this would be a great introduction to triple screen gaming. Still it's a bargain.

Maybe they didn't went for it, since that might have added a bit to the overall cost?...

A little - maybe there's some licencing deal behind it but most cheap monitors don't have them any more.

You can always use a metal plate and some strong double sided tape.

I think you'd be alright without a triple monitor stand for screens this small.

Monitors don't weigh much these days and 3M make some amazing stuff. They have a mounting tape that can hold up to 13 kilos. Yeah it's ghetto but you could do it.

Probably. Crazy to think it's not that long ago a 15" 4:3 LCD was massive.

Solid Deal

While the Freesync range is small, a 470 or 480 should have no trouble with a bit of tweaking at keeping the minimum frame rate above 40 and the you use frame rate targeting or vsync to keep the top at 75 or less.

The range is narrow but manageable at 1080P and with an IPS screen you will get smooth and sexy game play.
