+ Rep. Thanks!
Well the 3D emitter was no problem at all. When you remove and lift the bezel off. it has to be flipped over then you can remove the screw that is securing it to the bezel. Easy!
Hardest part is the start of unclipping the bezel. The casing and bezel are bound together with strong sturdy clips. But their is a technique and once you know it and dont have any fear it comes off easy. Just got to be patient and relax. You cant break these things at all. Trust in yourself lol. Basically same technique as the VG248QE. Wedge knife in and pull bezel up with free hand. I will explain more in the video.
Mounting this baby is awesome! Once debezelled they dont loose their VESA mount so you can now choose to mount Portrait or Landscape! But the VG278H does suffer from the tape treatment like the VG248QE. I mounted it anyways and its hanging there fine and hasn't moved. Maybe there is something else holding it too that i haven't seen. But I would just use some sikaflex, thick glue or even more tape to make sure its secure. It will be ok. - This was the news I was most happy with!!!
The only negative if you call it one is the buttons and the 3d emitter don't have enough slack to re-position them where you want. If your mounting in landscape i guess they can be stuck with double sided tape to the top and the OSD Buttons can have the same treatment to and stuck on the bottom (basically back to there original positions).
However in portrait there are problems.The 3D emitter cant be mounted on the top of portrait screen (not enough slack in cable) or on the top in landscape (interfere with other monitors bezels). It will have to be taped to the back out the road anyway in portrait mode you wont need the 3D emitter anyways.
Took me 30 minutes as I took photos and videos and adjusting the light all the time to suit the cameras. I haven't checked the footage yet hopefully it came out ok. I also managed to delete the only pictures of the 3D Emitter as I debezelled. I have videos that cover it but, so all is good I guess!
So in the end the Bezel size went from 20mm down to 12.5mm. And the thickness from the side went from 30mm to 10mm. this will help Give a flatter immersive gaming.
This was the only VG278H I have left. I still have to move it on just been slack. So sorry that I could not show you what it looked like in Surround. If I had done this when I had all three VG278H monitors still I would have saved $3,600 on monitors & projectors. Trust me do not under estimate the power of debezelling and what it can do for your immersion in games.
Hopefully in the near future we see some debezelled surround VG278H setups rocking this thread.Edited by hatlesschimp - 6/6/13 at 3:29am
