I wish they showed more actual shots of it on the auction page like the Catleap has.
Gonna snag one while I've got the money and I can always hold onto it until I get upgrade my video cards if need be or at worst, it should be an easy re-sell locally as long as it's in good condition when it gets here.
IPSB is the model I have, which is glass all across the face. No plastic bezel, I bought mines from dcsamsungmall and noticed 1 very small piece of dust that doesn't annoy me at all because of placement, etc. Another person here got his from dcsamsungmall and his frame was cracked and he had a few pieces of dust. Not sure if anyone got one from dreamseller yet. In any case, I like the monitor. It's the same panel LG as the OP so, the choice is yours. No speakers though (even though as you can see from my pictures it uses the same back frame as the OP, so you see the speaker grills, but no speaker or audio in jack).
As for the person asking about black levels. I think it's fine. It's actually not to bad, looking at it straight on, you really dont see the backlight, although from an angle you start to see it (true for any LED backlit panel). Do remember it's YMMV, not all panels are created equal
