Disassemble or not ?



  • Hi all,
    I have a Iyama ProLite 55 inch monitor and want to use him with a Pilkington Mirropane chrome spy. On top I want to use a IR touch frame.
    I have some questions in mind:

    • Should I remove the front bezel from the monitor to bring the mirror closer to the display ? Mostly I read here there is a clear yes !
    • I still have the back plastic cover mounted. The display is fixed on the wall with a standard VESA mount on the wall. Should I remove also the back cover ? I thought maybe it protects the display and the electronics a bit ? image0.jpeg
      If not, maybe the back cover would disturb the picture frame because he has a simillar outer size.
      Thanks for your comments !

  • Hi Peter,

    I would remove the bezel as it will get the display and mirror closer, also bezels are mosly bigger then the display’s outer frame so you will also need smaller mirror. About the back cover it depends on your frame. If frame is covering the back side, then it is fine. I am building my first mirror with Samsung TV UE32D5000 and did only removed the bezel and kept the cover. My plan is to reuse the wall mount that came with TV so it is strong and I do not need hooks in the frame. I will keep it posted in show your mirror topic how it goes.

    Thanks for the thorough explanations, I appreciate it.



  • Hi

    I have just finished (some final touchup still remains) my first 32" mirror (more in showcase section) and it looks good to have the back panel. I will post photo of back and front panel here once I get some time.
