Happs 19" bezel?
« on: August 18, 2002, 04:30:55 pm »
Will a Happs 19" bezel work for a 21" PC monitor? Does anyone have any experience with the foam type?

I have a 21" Pc monitor and a 19" Happ Bezel, and the answer is No. The bezel is too small unless your good with your hands and cut out the inside of the bezel to fit exactly witht your monitor.

okay get the plastic..its very very good looking..i cant believe how nice it looks with the bezel..you can easyly cut with a knife and fit..my monitor has 19" viewable area,i cut it all the way to fit it..its like a perfect fit..its design to fit 19" but about 17" viewable monitor when its right out the box..but the material is very good..and i mean very very good..i can upload a pic or get the exact size after you cut the bezel all the way.then you can compare the size with the viewable screen of your monitor..i have 21" GEM pc monior in another computer,it fits really well..i tried.so get the bezel at any cost..making one much more painufull then it might sound.DONT TRY AND MAKING YOURSELF..get it..its only like $12.

Foam Bezel ...

did you cut your bezel?  how did you cut it?

does anyone know what the foam bezel is about? can this also be bought from somewhere else(craft shops etc.)?



I bought the 13" foam bezel for a bartop cab that I'm building and I would have to say that it's definitely NOT worth the $11 or whatever it was.  It is not a complete bezel. It is just the foam seal. I could have bought a strip of 3/4" adhesive backed foam from a craft store for like a dollar and it would have been just as good.  

I will have to cut out a flat, cardboard bezel and stick the foam seal to the bottom of it so it seals to the curved monitor tube.
