A tad bit late to this party, but I had the same issue.
My resolution was using the Microsoft Office Spreadsheet 11.0 control.
A bit over kill but free. After editting several properties and seting run time parameters, I was able to get a clean data grid-ish looking control.
I only needed read only dynamic data from a datbase so it does what I need it to do with out a $500 license fee from VS Flex grid.
