    Thoughts:

    • On the top of the monitor (right side as it stands in portrait) the bezel covered some holes where the backlight shines through. Because the frame is cut at the physical edge on all sides, you can see it from the front (and also a little on the top). If I did it again I’d put a small strip on the inside so you can only see the usable screen space.
    • The flush VESA mount makes it very difficult to mount and secure on the wall. On this particular model the VESA mount is bolted on at the bottom of the monitor (on the left side as it stands). It mounts a little uneven because all the weight is on the left side.
    • Even with the thicker acrylic that I purchased, there is a slight funhouse mirror effect.
    • Still undecided about what to do with the power cord. I thought about notching the bottom, and also thought about putting an outlet passthrough behind it so it won’t be visible.


  • Very nice!
    I like the polished finished look to it.
