Does anyone make a screen where you mount the screen directly to the wall through the bezel? If not, why? It would seem easy to do, just build some pass through holes to put some screws right through the screen and into the wall.


Thanks

at 60+lbs for most of these screens you need to secure them directly to a stud to mount them to a wall. Fixing the mounting holes to each corner of the bezel would almost guarantee that you would only ever get two screws and only on one side into studs leaving the other side hanging by only drywall which would subsequently rip out either immediately or over time placing all of the weight on the other two mounting screws which would effectively rip those two screws right through the bezel. Without the manufacturer putting adjustable slits into the bezel like they do on the wall mounts it would be nearly impossible to mount it securely and then it would look ugly.


And then, there's the fact that the bezel is not designed to hold the TV, it is purely decorative and it would be really easy for the customer to over tighten those screws and snap/crack the bezel. Maybe if the bezel was steel reinforced but that would add extra cost. What's the point when you can get a fixed position low profile wall mount that would accomplish the same thing from monoprice for $20?

I guess. But those low-profile mounts are only 1.25" deep. You also have to worry about the cables, all the connections would have to be moved to the side which would involve putting a lot of electronics in the side bezel area which would result in very thick bezels.


If you want to mount your TV absolutely flush with the wall call a carpenter and have him rework the drywall and studs in the wall to provide a recessed mounting area inside the wall. That would actually look pretty slick, much better than just screwing the TV into the wall through the bezel.
