But, let me speak from my experience owning 4 Acer monitors, and a friend who owns 3. I will not buy an Acer again. The quality is just not up to snuff, he has one with a line going thru it, I have two with really bad colors (set identical settings on monitor, identical model number, identical video cards).... I just won't buy Acer again.
Regarding bezels, my Acers are not square/flat. I've had to turn my top two upside down to try to get the bezels closer to each other for the bottom pair vs top pair. Of course when I purchased I didn't know I would be using them with a quad monitor stand, but next time I will pay far more attention to bezels, as well as be willing to pay more for a better product.

I also do not consider Dell the best of brands, but a step up from Acer, and didn't see any good deals at the outlet today, but if your patient and keep your eyes open, they pop up all the time.
One last suggestion, if I had to do it again, I would pay up for a monitor with a minimum of 1920x1200, and would even prefer what my Sony 24" has of 1920x1600. The 4 Dell's I have are only 1920x1080 (normal hd), and it's somewhat amazing how much more real estate you get out of the same size monitor, with the higher resolutions. JMO!

Mike is correct -- Acer is crap/not worth it at any price. Regarding Dell Outlet: I had a 2405 for a for few/couple years. Was, initially, very happy with it; exceptional picture, video rendering and color. Some disturbing defects started to appear over time. Screen persistence was really bad. I tried to resolve with some pixel reset tools and giving the monitor a rest, but to no avail. Later, the monitor color was very blotchy; it only showed with certain background colors, but like the screen persistence issue, only got worse as the months rolled on. Then, the monitor frequently would lose its settings during boot/reboots. It finally gave up the fight a couple weeks ago. I purchased another monitor, HP LP2465 (recertified thru NewEgg) a few months ago excepting the Dell to die. While not perfect; left side of screen is slightly brighter than left side, it is an excellent quality monitor... and has a flat bezel. You should be aware that there are vents along the top and bottom of the bezel. This is the only monitor that I've seen for ~$200 with anywhere near the picture quality of the Dell (when I first bought it) with the exception of video response, which I would rate at fair/poor.
