Had thoughts of doing this for my FW900's. I have never thought to run all three of them but if I did 5 inches of bezel would be annoying.

Hi guys! First post~

I purchased 3 x LG IPS231P-BN's last week, and decided to tinker with them a little bit yesterday :)

Before I stripped them down, I tried searching around to see if debezel-ing an LED monitor would be any different to CCFL backlit monitors (was worried that perhaps the LED's might shine through). However, I could not for the life of me find any cases of debezel-ed LED monitors! Being the brave and courageous soul that I am (you can tell by my profile picture), I took the plunge anyway.

I stripped down the monitor (scuffing up the cases quite severely), only to find that the VESA mounting holes did not penetrate the inner casing. Instead, I found four depressions in the metal, where I would liked to have seen four holes.

Now, I'm really not the great handyman I'd like to be, but I knew that I wanted holes there, and I can't think of a better way to make a hole in metal than with a drill. I separated the large metal bracket/case/thing-with-lots-of-holes from the bare LCD panel. Stuck to this metal bracket was the power supply, and the board that gets all the inputs. The power supply was right beneath where the VESA mount needed to be, and it wouldn't budge - now I was playing a dangerous game. I went to the garage, dug through all the tools and found the power drill and the right drill bit. Rolled up my sleeves, plugged in the drill, took a deep breath.. at which point I passed the drill to my Dad :). Now I have holes in my monitors! yay

As you can see, it all went relatively smoothly, so now I have three bezel-free LED monitors sitting on my desk.

TL;DR: Took off the casing, drilled holes for VESA mount, less distracting bezels now

BTW, are magnets harmful to LCD displays? I'm thinking of buying black flexible magnetic strips and lining them up with whats left of the bezels.

Hi all. Sometimes lurker, first time poster.

I decided to take the plunge and attempt to remove the cases off my three Dell U2311H.
Cases removed easily enough.
Then I came to a screaming halt.
The part of the monitor with the Vesa mount is not connected firmly to the panel.
It easily moves a few millimeters and no way in hell was I going to test if it was actually strong enough.


I was severely disappointed with that as I measured the panel bezel as 10mm compared to the cases 18mm.
While it was apart I decided to remove the usb ports on the side and cut the mounting area.
I will use this as the center monitor so both side monitors can now be flush against the middle one.


If anyone has any mounting ideas I'm all ears.

OMG. Guys, you even can't load few previous pages to read? When I disassebled my monitors I did read every post from this topic. ADSTA, see the previous pages and my thoughts regarding mounting even with the youtube link. Also you can drill the holes as did previous lucky eyefinity guy.

Those are some nice Benq Monitors; same shell design as my XL2410T.

Here are some shots of my mod I am doing to one monitor first.

I reused some hardware from the shell. The threaded fasteners on the back of the cover came in handy for adhering them to the panel using some 3200 PSI Locktight adhesive.
Just had to drill some holes in the PCB case and fix some 4mm .70 x 20mm bolts for the vesa mounts. Used the shell as a guide to make the fasteners perfectly lined up on the pannel.
Will post more pictures soon, but right now the adhesive is drying for 24 hours.

Will get 2 more soon for eyefinity.

It is COMPLETE! Wow!!! I am going to order 2 more of these from newegg when they get in stock. I might have to pick up a 6990 and a nice triple monitor stand.

Here is two more pics. I added a little bit extra support; purely based on paranoia reasonings, none founded in logic at all. But... It sure was fun. LMAO.
