Just did my first strip down of a monitor - took my Hanns G 28" ($249.99 at tiger direct right now). Bought wife a desk and she is gonna us it (until i can get 2 more) and the damn monitor was like 1/2 inch to big on both sides - so 5-6 screws on the outside, 2 screws on the inside and disconnecting the craptacular internal speakers and PoW - 1/2 in bezels on a 28" LCD




@ 250 a pop and @ 1920x1200 thats a pretty nice set with native HDMI support

just joined WSGF after a long time of just browsing. After hours of searching and trying to figure out how to remove the bezel of my two w2408h's, I finally was able to. I had a monitor with some vertical lines on it, so I figured why not. If I was able to do it without breaking it, I was going to buy a third one from a guy on craigslist for $200. Here's how it turned out:
Before:


After




Not too shabby coming from almost 3" of bezel to just under a 1/2" Ignore the periodic table of elements haha, I am a Chem major and it comes in handy.

Bought 3 new NEC 19" monitors today. Native resolution 1280x1024.
I bought these completely with the intent to tear them apart and strip them down to only the thinnest bezel possible.
Here are a couple photos so far for the 1st monitor in the set.
Before:

After:

Reduced the bezel size from 1.5 cm to .5 cm on each side.

Project log and slide show over at my blog.

Well, I have stripped one of my Benq G2420HD, looks perfect with very thin metal bezel, I was very excited and.... FAIL :( There is no way to fix it with the my vesa wall mount since its attaching to plastic body of the monitor.

I'm not sure how this guy attached this monitor like this



Any suggestions from you guys? I believe I need to do some custom welding mounts like this one

My benq XL2410T's are the same for anyone wondering. No vesa holes. :(

The plastic did pop off dead easy though.

Anyone know if my Acer S231HL's can have the cover and bezels removed to make a thinner bezel setup like the OP? I dont want to tear it apart and risk damaging the cover if it is a waste of time. I may take them back for a set of ASUS VE248H's if those work better for bezel modding.

So I've got these 3 great Asus monitors. model VW246H. I took one apart to see what it looked like and brainstorm options for mounting it. It seems the VESA mounting is built into the outer shell, not the panel housing itself.

Pics here:



I was planning to get an Ergotech Triple Monitor Stand (100-D16-B03) to mount these puppies on after I removed the casing, is this possible? I don't see any screw holes. O_o
Would I need to buy VESA mounting brackets and gorilla glue them on?

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Removing the outer casing cuts the bezel size in half, so I'd really like to be able to do it.

Thanks in advance!
