The frame-less casings inner black bezel does ruin the perceived black depth a bit, especially if the monitors brightness is kept cranked in a dark room, but this can be combated by turning down the brightness, and by only using a bright bias light (light placed behind the monitor when close to a wall) to vastly increase the perceived black depth. I recommend using a bright 2600 lumen Daylight/6500k CFL (Philips example) behind the display while keeping the brightness below 100cdm/2 (2600 lumen light) or 140cdm/2 (5000 lumen light) in order to make black and dark content indistinguishable from the inner black bezel. A bias light can hide IPS glow as well as make an AHVA/IPS/PLS panels black depth equally as dark as a VA panel.
