I disagree. Depending on the orientation you choose to have, you can easily hold the panel on 2 edges. So for example on 3x vertical surround, the panel could be held on the bottom and top edges while touching the adjacent panel with right and/or left edge. The only thing I believe could be problematic is wiring or electronics hidden under those inner bezels. If it's just holding some pieces of plastic, then it could potentially be removed or gently sawed off.

Thoughts?

Its usually held to the back part of the frame by a crimp type connection if that makes sense. There should be tabs that can be bent out to allow the frame to either come off or fold out like a book in one direction.

Interesting... so basically you're suggesting cutting near the corners and bending it over would make it possible to expose the panel edge. Which in turn suggests the whole thing being possible. I haven't purchased a monitor set yet, as I'm researching if the above is possible to do. I'm expecting something like that or similar before I'd be enticed to go with the surround.

I really enjoyed screenshots of that backlit surround setup with zero gap between images. That's what I'm aiming for with removing the inner bezel (as I'm not happy with using projectors, as those will have crazy amounts of input lag and dubious refresh rates).

You're still going to have a gap, the pixels don't go all the way to the edge of the glass (or plastic) screen. You'll want something to protect the exposed wires and PCB and in some cases to hold the screens, the actual panel and PCB together. While the plastic bezel is there mostly for looks and in some monitors for mounting, its in a case for a reason. I haven't seen any detailed disassembly pictures of the monitor you are talking about so IDK exactly how its designed.

You seem pretty bent on completely disassembling those monitors so you might as well go for it and post up a guide. smile.gif

The gap might be small enough to be completely obscured by the middle panel (given there's a few degrees angle between them).
Exposed wires and PCB? well, that's already the case with the original mod (from the first post in this thread). I don't think it'll be much worse than the monitor hanging on adhesive or double-sided tape ;-)

Depending on the exact construction, it should be possible to get additional 1-3 mm by removing this metal frame (and ev. trimming the filter)


This guy's done quite a nice job: http://www.overclock.net/t/1181492/small-bezel-or-edgeless-monitors-curved-monitor-decussion/10#post_16033647

Hi guys,

Been a lurker here for quite some time and after seeing some of your amazing builds i finally pulled the trigger. I just love the result of debezeling and portrait surround, looks awesome and gaming is really cool. I've decided to post some pics of before and after debezeling the ve248qe's.


Before:

Note than i was overlapping the monitors even then but as you all know due to the build of the plasic bezel one monitor would be further overlapped than the other, doesnt really show on the pic but it really doesnt matter i guess, if you are going surround or eyeinfinity then debezeling is a must anyways.

Debezeling was pretty easy thanks to the excellent guide by hattlesschimp(thank you very much). I was struggling a bit to get the monitors sticking to the stand(using double sided tape and resting bottom part of the monitor in the base) at the same angle. What i did was to put the screen on its face, then i screwed the stand base off(the round thing at the bottom of the stand) before attaching the stripped stand to the back of the monitor, I measured it such that when the base of the stand was attached to the back of the monitor, I could screw the stand base such that the bottom part of the monitor would perfectly rest on the stand. The result was perfectly angled monitors and seamless overlapping:

Anyways, enough with the tech talk here are some pics of my result, couldn't be happier!

After:





Looks great, the viewing angle is not really a problem except when watching dark movies but that is not what this settupp is for anyways. I noticed that someone was requesting the results from debezeling the VN247H i am to interested in the results. For the future I will be adding an accessory monitor as well(I am using nvidia surround, @2*DVI doubles and one dp, this worked a lot better for me than using a hdmi cable where one monitor would have a more gray "coloration" that would really stick out as well as not allowing me to run at more than 60 hz, now with dp it does allow me to run at 144hz, I've had no issues or crashes with this config either so very pleased)

Have a good weekend!
Flexy:)

Portrait surround looks so silly with only three monitors. Especially 16:9 monitors, lol. Talk about weird-vertical-itis.

Portrait surround is actually much closer to your natural field of vision than landscape surround. Normal human field of regard is around ~200 degrees wide by ~120 degrees tall, or about 1.66.

A 3x 16:9 portrait setup is 1.6875.

A 3x 16:9 landscape setup is 5.33

Which is closer to 1.66?

First time I tried landscape surround it just felt wrong, having such a narrow tiny vertical view into the world. People say "well I have peripheral vision" when using landscape surround. Peripheral vision sees objects by motion and is extremely blurry. Ya, in landscape surround you have peripheral vision but the vast majority of your vertical vision is your desk and your wall, not a view into the game world.

Also, the world stretch and fish-eye that comes with Landscape is just horrid. Something to consider.

Before Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Work in progress



These are benQ 24" 1080 monitors. I only have 2 at the moment with the 3rd on the way. I will post more pictures when I am done, I realized I had no heavy duty double face tape so will be making a run to home depot and while there I will be grabbing some black paint to redo the bare silver. I am extremely happy so far though, I went from a dreadful INCH and a Half between each monitor down to less than half an inch, it's such a beautiful thing even though it's not finished drool.gif

Well my debezel was going well UNTIL my doorbell rang, I obviously had to answer it and had left some food at the table I was working on and forgot to block the area from my dog. While I was at the front door my lovely shepard made her way to the table and landed her large paws onto the monitor I was in the process of finishing so it is now shattered. I will keep the one that is debezelled and cancel my order on the planned 3rd one and just be upgrading to 1440 with the single 1080 as a side monitor. Guess it was a win lose situation buttkick.gif

Youd care if that bush and fence when guys are about to shoot you in a competitve gaming match. Your buddies were all counting on you for the last kill and you were about to win some money:) just sayin...... Looks great in portrait dont get me wrong ... just thinking about serious gaming. I have 3 asus vg248qe as well. Wish you could debezel for landscape. Guess have to find a way.
