I received mine today from the last round. The bezels are slim and as depicted. Not at all like the reviews say.

So far I'm happy with it, still trying to figure out how to enable 75hz because the option isn't available in windows settings.

Rakuten denied cashback from my first order of the same monitor via Perkopolis due to 'external' site used. Still mad and fighting on it. Just ordered another one via EPP and cashback showed up in less then 5 minutes. Blood pressure stabilized.

I got this monitor during boxing Day and it's quite a nice monitor. But unfortunately it doesn't have built-in speakers (or webcam but the latter is fairly uncommon anyway)

Isn't Rakuten cashback also YMMV with the EPP site just like it is with Perkopolis? Did you use the Rakuten chrome app when making the purchase?

There are some reports here of cashback being denied for EPP purchases:

It's more frequent that perkopolis cb gets denied. They do have a faily solid argument that perkopolis is an external website ie, not owned by Lenovo. Epp is actually Lenovo's own program. You would have more ground to stand on with epp purchases.

Any portable, affordable speaker recommendation to accompany this monitor?

There is actually no ground to stand on. As it says at https://www.rakuten.ca/lenovo-canada :

"Special Conditions:

Cash Back is not available on purchases from the Lenovo Pro Small Business member store. Use of coupon/promotional codes not listed on Rakuten may void Cash Back. Cash Back is not available on gift cards, e-gift cards, Lenovo Outlet items, Motorola products, orders deemed by Lenovo to be for reselling purposes (limit 5 units per customer on any order) and Solutions sub-sites including; Large Enterprise, State & Local Government, Federal Government, Healthcare, K-12 Education, Higher Education, Students, Partner Portal, Military Portal, Affinity Discount Program, Lenovo/IBM/Motorola Employee Purchase Programs (EPP), Lenovo Corporate Employee Purchase Programs (CEPP) and Lenovo Member Purchase Program (MPP). Cash Back can only be researched for up to 60 days from the order date. Cash Back is only available on orders completed and shipped through the Lenovo CA site. All orders placed through other countries will void Cash Back."

So if you get it, you're lucky. But nobody should count on it or feel entitled to it.

I have this monitor from a previous sale. Some observations:

Good:
- High resolution (but more about that in the bad)
- Excellent brightness, contrast and color
- Thin bezels
- Lightweight
- HDMI and DP allows me to alternate inputs with my work computer and home computer

Bads:
- Flimsy base. Any slight movement of my desk and it wobbles.
- Feels cheap. There is a plastic loop that holds cables in the back that feels dollar store.
- This is more of a personal thing but the resolution for screen size makes scaling a little odd depending on what OS, app and resolution you use. I think QHD would work better at a 26-27 inch size.
