  • Anti-Glare Film for Glossy Screen Help..

    Hi all,

    I am thinking about getting a new iMac, probably the 24' one, but I need some advice/suggestions.

    The the way my room is set up, I have a window directly behind me. A rather large one. Given, I have venetian blinds to keep most of the light out, light still seems to get through the cracks...

    .. I was wondering if anyone is in the situation I'm in and has one of the newer Mac's with the glossy screen (or computer in general with a glossy screen)?

    Has anyone heard anything about or have any personal experience with those anti-glare stick on things that they sell, like the site below?

    Do they work well?
    Do they add any 'ugliness' to the screen, so to speak?

    and



    So, all in all, before I go out spending over a thousand dollars on one of these babies, I was just wondering if it'd be worth it or not, a-la glareness.

    I'd appreciate any help / advice!

    I don't have any experience with any of these films, but I guess that it would do the job. Another option to look at is 3M, they have some good screen covers:

    I would just go to an Apple Store if you haven't already and see how much the glossy bothers you. They have really strong fluorescent lighting in the stores which creates a lot of glare, so you should get a good picture of how much it bothers you.

        If you're a graphics artist, I wouldn't get the film because as the site states, you lose about 10% of brightness and contrast.
        change must come from within
