Default Monitors for video wall

I'm thinking of a making a video wall or some sort of wrap around configuration with initially 3x 24 but maybe 6 x 24 overtime. I guess I need 2 more monitors for now, any ideas on good yet cheapish monitors with very slim bezels to get that seamless look?

cinemassive and eye-infinity have got me thinking
OmegaPlex Ultra High Definition Multi Monitor Display

Omegaplex does offer turn key solutions. Just tell them that your application and account will be a little smaller than NASA's.

I wish I could help you out with the monitors. Good luck on the project.

Talk to a vendor (Philips or Acer) and see if you can get just the raw panels. You would have to make your own cables and mounting system but the end product would be much nicer.

This. If you can find someone who can set it up professionally that would be even better. You wouldn't have the borders distracting you. It'd be all panel. Like that new Rogers HD commercial with the good lookin' babe out side.

This video wall project has definitely taken a turn for the hotness.

Default we could be neighbors...

I'm in the Annapolis Valley too, wonder if I know you. Bezel-less would be the bees knees, but on a budget this looks nice for the price

I'll probably be getting myself a 25.5" in a month or so.

i have the monitior and yes it does have a small bezel but it still mesures 1/2inch wide. that means you would have 1 inch of black between each screen.
