When you debezel a monitor, do you take the whole protection thing off? Is it all one big piece of plastic, or can you protect the pcb and such while still having your monitor debezeled? I take my rig to LAN parties once in a while, and having open pcb's all over the place in my car would make me paranoid

pcb is protected under the cover. The only thing that would be out in the open are the small pcb for the front panel buttons.

Are they even functional? I read in a review that the buttons were just aesthetic. The reviewer stated that they used a frame from another monitor model to save costs, but that the buttons actually don't do anyting tongue.gif

Anyways, I can live with them being out in the open. If it bothers me too much, I'll try painting the thing and see what happens, like in one of the linked tutorials from earlier.

Thanks!

I thought only the Brightness and power button were functional, and everything else on the button PCB did nothing at all? At least for these bypass models.

The only three buttons accessible from the outside are the brightness buttons and the power button.

Hmm, then I wonder why BGKris said they were all functional?

That's what I meant. Sorry that I was not more clear.

I did read... and as far as the Mem bus, it has the Mem compression which is been shown to be as good as the wider bus.... I've read, and studied that. Also, far as the panel.. I didn't realize it was such a bad panel.. then why are so many folks on here buying it? meh...and no recommendation for a panel then? Thanks for your assessment. I will think it over. I am moving to the 980's for some of it's features, less power draw, Voxel(when used later) and so on. I don't care.. just want a panel that looks good.. doesn't have to have each and every single little thing perfect....
