can you post pic of your setup without bezel? thx!

Just want to tell everybody that's asking that my home internet is down and the only way I'm getting online is through my school internet. Router from verizon should be in today if not then tomorrow. Will upload a few images of the setup as well as the screw placements and things like that. Sorry to keep you guys waiting frown.gif

Thanks for this thread/video. wink.gif
Is there a way to put the glass back on? I mean, could you take the glass of clean it from dust (which like everyone is getting on these babies) and put the glass back on easy?

Sorry for not delivering for a few days guys, but I have the pics and I'm back up and running at home. Sorry about the image quality for some of the images, i had to resort to using my 6MP Cannon instead of my 16.2MP Sony which had much better macro focus quality and overall image quality.

The top left side of the monitor. As you can clearly see in this image the black back part of the monitor maxes quite a gap between the panel and the inside.

The power LED is VERY bright when naked and I was thinking of just removing the whole thing, seeing as how it has no use

Power LED photo with flash to better show that area of the monitor

An image of the left side of the monitor where it's held in by a screw that I found in my box of Xbox 360 parts, I think this is a motherboard screw for the XBox 360. Threads and length were perfect for this.

Lastly, a very bad image of the overall look of the monitor. I love to see bare electronics so this look doesn't bother me at all.

To twebbas, the adhesive which is most likely double sided tape if still extremely sticky after removal and should be good enough for a few removals. I was actually planning on modding my monitor by replacing the double sided tape with velcro that way the glass will be as easy to remove as those iMac's with magnetic attachment. Removing the tape from the glass is easy to do with a scuff pad (No scratches since your doing this on the black painted bezel side) however removing it from the white bezel is very difficult.

Thank you for the reply. Really do appreciate it. Have a nice weekend. =)

Have not followed up much about the screens but what is the purpose of doing this mod?

what if you remove the screen from the back case to and do eyefinity with less bezel? you can paint that white part on the sides.

from what i understand, the tempered glass finish is extremely glossy and reflective. Looks good, but more of a hindrance than benefit.
