Sweet and thank you! Going by the images in the guide it seemed rather easy to pop them off, but my mind thinks when something seems easy it's to good to be true biggrin.gif

Only worry is when I debezel them, I live in an extremely dusty area...why just half a block down the street, we have a orchard thumb.gif

VG278H Surround Setup

1440p Samsung 970D

My CPU ROOM
and now the VG248QE Portrait Surround.




Now i just have to debezel them and mount them back onto the original stands somehow??? I dont think ill worry about the matte finish. I had a brief play of ARMA 3 and it felt awesome. I dont know yet how well the 2 titans run at this res but already i have noticed the smoothness coming from the samsung 970D 1440p monitor @ 60hz. Now all i can think about is a 4k monitor that runs at 120hz. how awesome it would be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well it didnt take long till i hacked the screens apart. These screens straight out of the box take 30 seconds to asseble at most. They are well made for the price and sturdy unlike my sammy 970D. I'm very impressed with them. Now once again im debating what to do. Do i buy another Titan or two? Or stay with what i have till the AMD 8970 and go 5x1 with these puppies? Im looking forward to playing GRID 2 with this setup and ive been holding off on playing Crysis 3 till i sorted out what way i was going to go with posible setups. I was looking at dual projectors and even quad led projectors rear projected but in the end i opted to keep it simple and go the vg248qe in surround portrait. Ive taken a few vids and ill try and upload them in the next day or so.

Removing the back vesa stand mount.


The monitor without the stand attached.


Splitting the plastic bezel from the main housing. I ended up just using a butter knife and flathead screw driver.


Bezel off.


The controls for the monitor.


Flip whats left of the monitor over and the back plastic casing just falls off and the panel comes out with ease.


Taping the internal aluminum housing/bezel with black tape. Beats trying to spray paint and looks good and does the job quick.


Original next to the first completed modified monitor.



I used double sided tape to secure the monitor back to the original stand. Im going to make 3 vesa mount plates out of aluminium plate around 6mm thick. they will have drilled and taped holes. ill use a quality glue to stick the made up vesa mounts to the back of the modiefied monitor. Also i have to secure the shround that contains the electrics on the back of the monitor because its only taped in position lol.



Finished about 1 hour later. I can take a lot quicker but i had tea and i was filming and taking photos.

Thanks for that hatless. Truly great work.

You definitely have to debezel these things if you plan on going portrait surround vs landscape. I'm using landscape now and it doesn't bother me at all because I lap the bezels behind the center monitor. I tried at one point to go portrait as a test and that's when the bezels are really really distracting. I only played that way for about 20 minutes before switching back as it was just too annoying and there's lapping the bezels in portrait ruins the entire experience.

Im hearing ya!

This is what i did today. Picked up the monitors, Unboxed and installed into portrait surround. played various games for 30 minutes and was in awe of the nearly UHD graphics and then got distracted by the bezels. I had some late lunch then started to remove the bezels. I was planning on keeping them original for a week or two but i couldnt understand how they could make a monitor with a swivel vesa mount have such a bulky bezel at the bottom that is compounded by having buttons there as well and a deep back at the top. LOL its such a bad design fault! They were so close!!! but not to be. At the moment my double sided tape is just temporary till i make the vesa plates and then they will be back to normal with the ability to swivel into landscape and portrait mode. i think debezelled landscape surround would look sweet too. i used to have it with the vg278h but they had thick bezels.
