    Ok guys, I have been packing stuff up that I have sold in my FS thread and I am having a hard time finding a box that will fit this monitor in. The boxes I have are either just too small or WAY too big. Anyone have any ideas cause I want to get this to him ASAP

    Depending on the box size. you can mod the box some so it can have longer flaps that you can just trim down or you can just overlap them and tape it up really good.where the flaps are, just cut those down some in each corner and making the flaps longer.

    I think I explained that well lol.

    if its a flat box but just wider then the monitor. Can just stuff it good with hard foam so it can't move around and crack a side or anything.

    TPU for the win! :lovetpu:

    I have a NIB black logitech 3 button usb mouse gratis if you need it.
