Not sure if this is really the best way to describe this but I'll do my best. I got a new second monitor for my iMac today, this monitor to be specific. While the image on the site seems to show a decent enough sized side bezel I was happy to discover when I unboxed the monitor that the bezel on the sides is only about 1/8 of an inch thick. Unfortunately when I hooked up the monitor to my iMac (via an MDP to HDMI adapter) I noticed that the larger (roughly 1/2 in wide) bezel is in fact present but appears on the LED panel itself as if it's being software controlled. This isn't a major concern for me as I can deal with the extra bezel (my iMac has plenty after-all) but if there is some way to remove the black around my picture and have just the thin bezel that would be wonderful. Maybe it's just a thing that this monitor does, I'm not sure. If no one has a solution I'll just assume that. It's still a great monitor and after color calibration matches the quality of my iMac almost perfectly which is awesome. I just wish the picture extended to the true edges of the screen.
