LG 25UM65-P, False advertising or is something wrong with my setup?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I bought 3 LG 25UM65-P panels that I had planned to use with my new secondary PC for surround gaming and desktop productivity. The main reason I picked this panel was from the images shown on Newegg, the monitor had basically no bezel (check here for reference http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824005693).

However after having gotten everything setup today, I noticed something pretty bad. These monitors appear to actually have an artificial bezel that spans about 2 inches on the left, right, and top of the screen as seen here:




Are these panels falsely advertised? They definitely aren't 25 inches when you take into account these artificial bezels. Or is it potentially something to do with my setup? I've checked in the NVIDIA control panel for scaling but the monitor is already set to it's maximum width and height.

Well I went ahead and got an RMA for these things. Had to go through a long process with a chat rep since I claimed they were falsely advertised and because they were refurbed products I couldn't use the automated system. Really sucks since I only paid $170 each for these and that doesn't buy another monitor worth a damn. Now I just have to figure out what 3 monitors I want to get to replace these.
