Damn, that's annoying. Let me know how it goes, as i'm still interested in this.I removed the casing off of one of my U2412s, you save about half like Vega said, however mounting is going to be fairly creative, as the Case(plastic bezel) ends up supporting the VESA mount as well, the electronics underneath which house the VESAmount are only taped onto the back of the panel, granted it's some heavy duty tape.
I was wondering, maybe some heavy duty glue ? or a weld of some sort? I Don't know once I get an Arm I'm stripping all 3 monitors and figuring something out.
Sorry, I did not take any pictures of the whole process as I'd figure individuals willing to do such mods are extremely rare. Although, I could do a write up if people are seriously interested in purchasing these screens. I figure I have about 15 hours or so in this mod. The largest issue is that these monitors are real fragile inside. Especially when handling the circuit boards and ribbon cables etc. Along with that is removing the micro-fan with a heat gun when gutting the base/stand. Since the bezels and sub-housing retainers are removed I had to custom secure the LCD panels to the backlights so that they do not fall out.
LOL, this is [H] if it hasnt been done already, it will be done, and if your a pioneer... your set for life, and you my friend... are a pioneer! if you can explain it all many people would be very happy and you shoudl get an affiliate deal with samsung :d
Hi Vega, do you think this mod will also work on the s23a700d model? Seems like it would be even easier given the fact that all the pcb/components are mounted at the back panel rather than at the base.
Not sure about the "potential spot" for the VESA mounting point though...
