Im planning on building a motion racing simulator with a triple display setup so I'm looking for a television with the thinnest possible bezel. would prefer the TV to be around 46-47" +/- 5". Seems to be pretty difficult to search televisions based on bezel size. Any good candidates?

I guess I should have also have mentioned my budget for the project. I'm Looking to spend no more than $2,800 for all 3 displays. I've seen some of the bezel free commercial displays but unfortunately the price is way too high on those.


Another guy on the forum used 3 Vizio LCDs because he felt they had a pretty thin bezel but even that seemed too thick for what I am wanting. Here is a link to a vid of his setup. This is what I'm going for, just thinner bezel


Since I only have 1 post I can't put a link on here but If you goto YouTube and search for "Ledfoot 2DOF" you will see some vids of what I am wanting to set up

I needed a 47" with a narrow bezel because I wanted to maximize screen size while needing to squeeze it into a narrow space. My shortlist was the LG and Vizio. I bought the Vizio sv472xvt it is only 44.1" wide with a 47" screen. Just search for TVs without side speaker and search by overall width.

The 2009 Sony W, Z (and XBR) have very thin bezels. The 46" W is only 43" wide, and the Z and XBR is only 1/8" wider.


$2800 will be a bit tough though, but you can find the 46W5150 for $1050.00 right now here , so that's pretty close, and if you keep an eye out maybe less if you're lucky.


If you look at the CNET video review here , it gives you somewhat of an idea how thin the bezel is, it's only 1.5" on the top and sides.


The 2009 Sony V and S series have thicker bezels (44 1/4" wide) and the 2010 Sony EX series is about the same (44 3/8") , however they would be in your price range. Even at Best Buy (usually not cheap) the 46" EX400 is $899 online (could sometimes be cheaper in store)

Whoa. 8.5mm bezel on the LG LE9500 that is insane. I can only imagine how much that thing is going to cost.
