Default Want as little bezel as possible

So I'm doing a 3 monitor set up, my big thing is I want as little bezel as possible between the monitors. I'm looking at 22-24 inch monitors. Anyone have any suggestions as to some good monitors for gaming that will fit the bill for minimal bezel? I really just want to keep the price under about 250 per monitor.

I have yet to find myself with a slim bezel monitor, hence i am not doing any tri monitor setup until i find one.

There is one possible solution, buts it gonna go over the budget, here is a video

Well, this one is obviously out of your price range, plus it is 27", but it is the ultimate thin bezel:

NEW LG DM2792D-SN 27" 3D Full HD TV Monitor IPS 1.2mm Bezel HDMI+3D Glasses 2pcs | eBay

In terms of something that meets your criteria, there really hasn't been anything since Samsung discontinued their 3x and 6x setups unfortunately.

Yeah, that and a projector is what I use for my home theatre, but not what I would use for work and gaming lol

The other thing I've been thinking about is finding a good monitor that has everything in the chassis where I could remove the outer casing and just spray paint the metal inside matte black, that would, (at least for most monitors) give me only quarter inch or less border around the monitor. Of course the vesa mounting would have to be part of the monitor itself and not part of the plastic it resides in.

FYI, that AOC should be available at some Canadian resellers by next week. The distributor ASI is carrying them so whoever deals with them will have it. Pricing should be around $220 Canadian, although some may sell for less.

If you look at photos of actual screen images, as opposed to the Photoshopped advertising images, there's a good band of black around the edge inside the bezel. The screen image doesn't extend to the bezel. AOC is pulling a fast one with its product page.

If you look carefully at this photo, you can see the division (the photo is huge so I'll link it). The plastic case around the glass is only about 2mm, but the image doesn't cover the entire glass.

Anandtech recently ran a similar preview, and had users pointing out the discrepancy between the advertised screen coverage and the actual screen coverage.

Yep, hate to say it, but there is practically nothing for us multi-monitor junkies unless you want to spend a HUGE amount of money on a custom monitor setup that was made for large screen real-estate. I did not know Samsung discontinued their 3 or 6 setup thin bezel monitors... but they were like $400 each or something crazy without being IPS.
