Monitor with no or removable branding?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello.

I will be purchasing a new monitor next year along with a new PC, and I am looking for a monitor with no branding on the front (and preferably none on the back either).

This seems to be a hard thing to track down, since manufacturers do not seems confident enough in their design language and overall aesthetic direction to warrant not sullying their products with branding.

One potential monitor that I have found is this one: LINK

Now I am not saying whether that particular monitor is good or not, I am merely using it as an example. The back of the monitor is completely clean apart from a sticker that can be removed and the front has what appears to be a printed logo and name. Depending on what the composition of the plastic in the bezel and the ink used to print the logo is, there is a possibility of finding some type of solvent that allows for rubbing off the printed logo and name without damaging the plastic. This would result in a monitor completely free of all branding and text which is what I would like.

Which monitors would you recommend that either have no branding or have branding that is removable without damaging the rest of the design of the unit?

Thank you in advance.

I don't know about it now, but my Yamakasi Catleap (tempered glass edition) does not have any branding. More specifically, there is branding, but the glass itself has blackened, opaque bezel, and it covers up the branding quite nicely.

All the photos I can find of the monitor you mention show quite prominent and visible logo at the bottom of the front bezel. Are you saying that the glass has blackened over time to where this logo is now less visible than it was when the monitor was new?

Your most likely not going to find that since most manufacturers put their stamp on their item.
If i were you id get a Dell and just sand off the logo off the front, that's just my opinion.

But just looking at my catleap the branding on the front might just rub off with some strong cleaner, e.g. turps. That's the non tempered glass model.

I agree with Hamy144. I can't imagine you are going to find anything that is totally unbranded and would guess removing the branding without damaging the unit will be nearly impossible. Now if you were/are open to stripping the bezel and having custom paint work you may find something that will work.

Hm, you're right. There is a Yamakasi on it. I guess I've just grown to ignore it...
