Would you like your HD flat screen TV to have zero bezel?

    Something of a trendy and obsession amongst tetchy lovers is the push for as little a bezel as possible on their TV. Looks like it won't be long before zero bezel TVs become cheap enough to be mainstream. Is this something you hunger for?

    I've always liked the idea myself until I see them and they don't quite look right to my eyes but can't figure out why!

    Thoughts?

    The pointless black bit surrounding the screen.

    I can't say my flatscreen telly having a bezel keeps me lying awake at night.

    Ok..then in that case I like the idea of a TV without one. Sort of like an infinity pool.

    I expect you people like those clip frames for posters that have no frames either. You wish Athena shops still existed.

    I like a nice frame.

    Plus as a household with small children in it, the idea of an expensive bit of consumer electronics having a totally exposed edge gives me the heebie jeebies. Sharp corners too. I suppose it might be alright wall-mounted high up.

    Zero bezel ftw.

    One flat screen screen tv, hold the bezel.

    Just put razor blades along the edges. That'll keep 'em away.

    I thought bezels were just for watches

    On a related note, my cat was most distressed when I got a flat screen tv. She did her best to sit on top of it, but she kept falling off. She resented this massively. 8 out of 10 cats prefer CRTs.

    See this the thing, I really liked the idea of zero bezel but in reality the lack of frame was a little odd looking. Not sure what it'd be like for long periods of use mind...;)

    No, I quite like things to have a border.

    A bezel looks like a nice modern frame (or at least it ought to).
    Without a bezel looks like a poster in a cheap clip-frame.

    To my eyes/taste, at least.

    No. Fine if you've got a white wall behind, but if you've got random shit it's nice to have a border.

    Big bezelled teles will soon look as quaint as desk-filling CRT monitors.

    I don't care about this issue, perhaps because so far I've lived in places where the walls & other surroundings are uglier than any bezel :D
