    A guy my age should know better

    At my age (cough about50something cough) you'd think I know better. I got sucked in badly by this ...

    I bought 4, whacked em onto a new stand (Which I also have problems with) only to find that when you turn it on, the true bevel is revealed. yes, I hear you, its my own fault. Generally I research things until I cant stand looking at them anymore, not this time, my wife was on holiday in Canada so I spent as fast as I could on as much as I could (lol) while she was gone. Yes she noticed.

    Blatant false advertising, the reality is below, apologies for bad image, its dark, its an ipad, it has no flash (WTF?)

    So much for thin bevel, monitor is on screen saver to help get a better image. When turned on, the bevel reveals itself. All up the bevel on each monitor edge is just under half an inch, which is a hell of a lot more than the couple of millimeters it advertises.

    LG 23MP75HM.
    I will take a better shot in the daylight come tomorrow.
    P.S. Nice to be back, been awfully ill, on and off, mostly on.

    Nice setup, but yeah the side and top bezels certainly look wider than what was advertised.

    I looked at the spec's on their web site and they don't list a dimension, that I could find, for the edges. I have a 40" LG and it appears to have about the same edge around the LCD display.

    But, yeah, if you wanted 4 screens to put together and use as one this wasn't the model.

    Age (and I've got plenty being a "Florida Retiree") didn't really play a part.
