Removing a monitors bezel HELP?

This is my current monitor. It's around 14.59" x 18.82" and 20" diagonal.

I was wondering, if I remove the casing and bezel, could I get it down to less than 18 x 14, perhaps even less than 18x13?

you probably will only gain .5", 1" max.

what is your goal here? meaning: why are you considering this?

Nope.

You could take off the front bezel, but that won't do any good. There is still a back part that holds the actual LCD screen in place and you would have to remove that too. Although if you remove that, then your monitor has no stand!

You could grind away at the bezel.....but man that would create one ugly monitor.

It's hard to explain what I'm doing, but the whole not having a stand prt wouldn't matter.

So...how much total size do you think it would cut off with the casing off? I dont want to try if there is no hope.

I wouldn't recommend it. It would only take like 1/2 inch away and make an ugly monitor. If you do some cutting it will also drop the value by a lot.
