Customer Reviews

Blurs The ImageI have used antiglare screens before, but not in many years. While the film definitely improves privacy and reduces glare it actually blurs the quality of the image on screen. I read most of the reviews and thought I could work around the shortcomings. No way. This thing would create so much eyestrain in a short time, that I can't see it as usable. Sending it back 1A good option for not a ton of money!I agree with the other review here that this works more like an anti-glare screen with A LITTLE privacy protection. My wife can still see what I'm doing as we are sitting next to each other on the couch (even though I honestly didn't purchase it to hide what i'm doing from her). It only darkens what is happening on your screen but outlines and images can still can still be seen by others near by (I'll try to post some images to show what I'm talking about). I thought I'd take a chance with the lower cost privacy screen and I got what I paid for. Not recommended.UPDATE Dec 2012 - Been using this for a little while now and I'm not as down on this privacy screen as I initially was. I've learned two things...(1) The majority of people who come by my computer and try to look at my screen are standing next to me and CANNOT see the screen, and (2) The lighting in the room will play a HUGE effect on the darkening if the screen. At work where there are overhead fluorescent lights SIGNIFICANTLY helps to darken the screen for others. I regularly have people ask me why I'm typing on a blank screen, then they move over to see it.So instead of spending a ton of money of the other brands, give this one a try. Is it perfect? No. But for the money you'll be happy and that's why I updated my review as I think you will be too.OLD RANK = 2 starsNEW RANK = 4 stars 4Works pretty pretty pretty good.I have an Alienware R4 laptop with a 17.3" screen. I bought this protector and it fits almost perfectly. There is about a one or two pixel vertical height difference once you install this. May not be a big deal for some, but I still notice it, hence the 4 stars.Once you turn your brightness down a bit, this screen works well. People behind you will be able to see of course, but those off to the sides will have a hard time especially when this is installed and the brightness is down.I used the tabs that insert under the bezel to fit my screen. This was tricky since the bezel is pretty tight to the screen. I inserted my tabs from the top corner of the bezel and slid it down to the bottom area of the bezel. 4Cost effective and goodI bought a 3M filter before and it is very good https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HU9QU6W/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&th=1However that was $60. Worth it and I bought a bigger size so it sticks out on laptop on all 4 sides and I just taped it and it worked out well.Now, I was going to buy the 3M filter again but when I saw the Targus 4Vu Privacy screen for $21, I couldn't resist and bought it instead.It came in a HUGE box and well packed. The screen itself is very nice and the angles claimed are accurate - 30degrees on either side.However, it doesn't become as dark as with 3M and there is definite light bleed. You can easily make out what is being shown on screen.It also has lesser anti glare than 3M.Overall, I don't regret this purchase. It is quite good actually. Lighting tests -- dark room - with no other light, there's lot of light bleed and people can see what you're doing even beyond the 30 degrees- sunny room - the 30degrees holds up very well. Beyond it, it does get dark but not enough. You sort of can see what' going on but it is quite dark- the screen also gets dimmer a lot more so you need more brightness setting.- colors also get muted imo and the pop is missing- but it works well enough 4Easy to apply, wonderful for privacy.We use these screen protectors (we have bought 5 of them) at our office (healthcare) to protect our patient's information from prying eyes. They work really great, and are very easy to install (takes about 2-3 minutes). You can see the screen well when you are sitting straight on, but cannot see anything at all when viewing the monitor at an angle. 5Serves its functionThis serves it's function. I bought the 23.6" version and it fit my monitor exactly, so much so that between static and the close fit, I didn't even have to use any of the included mounting tabs. From angles it definitely blocks out the screen and is perfect for that function which was the main reason I bought it. I knocked off a star because it significantly darkens the screen for me sitting directly in front of it. I have the brightness turned all the way up and it still is a little darker than I'd like. Also, the very edges of my screen start to get darker since they're viewed at a little more of an angle and it kinda messes with me. Overall though, I'm happy with it and it's doing what I want it to do which is blocking my screen so the constant stream of people walking past my office can't see what I'm working on. 4Privacy- yes, easy to attach - noThe privacy function of this filter works well. Head on the view is clear but from the sides it is a total blackout. The fit could be better. I carefully measured my monitor and screen before ordering. It was supposed to be the exact dimensions I needed. In reality it is about a half inch more narrow on the sides. The worst feature is the mounting tabs. Two types are included and I could get neither one to work. I ended up getting Scotch clear mounting tabs to get it to attach and stay. 3Works great when used right.I use it with an ASUS T200 and I can set it on the hinge at the bottom of the bezel and it just does covers the whole screen. The laptop can be used as a tablet so the bezel is large and doesn't have a place to lock in the screen protector. I'll rarely need the screen protector, so this quick, temporary use is perfect.The 45 block angle is fairly accurate, so long as you have your brightness turned way down. If your screen brightness is up, it doesn't block your screen, but it does blur a little. It blocks left/right not up/down. I got it for a flight I was taking. It's perfect for people left and right of you, just know if you have an aisle seat, the people behind you on the opposite side of the aisle can see your screen so you might try blocking it with a shoulder or something. 5Works quite well and does not suffer from the moire ...Works quite well and does not suffer from the moire pattern others do. The only potential issue is that the screen is not permanently applied to your iPad but can be removed as it's held in place by dual-sided transparent strips (similar to how 3M privacy screens are used with notebooks). Also documentation mentioned the unit would come with small and large strips - mine came only with large strips 4Glare Eliminated!I have two 27" Thunderbolt Displays and just moved into a new office with floor to ceiling windows and a great view. Due to the office configuration, I am sitting with my back to the windows and the glossy displays were a nightmare due to the glare. I almost couldn't see the screen. I tried the cheaper film protectors but it was a disaster of air bubbles, so I invested in these. Just installed them and the glare is 100% eliminated. In fact, the privacy screen covers only the display portion, not the borders, so you can see the contrast of the glare of the borders vs. non-glare of the display dramatically. As another reviewer said, I don't care for the mounting brackets so I plan to use large black rubber bands to strap the screens to the display. I am using small pieces of tape for now and can finally get some work done!UPDATED: After a few weeks, I still love these. I actually tried the tabs and they were useless, especially on the Thunderbolt displays. The display borders are flush with the display itself, so there is no way to slide the privacy screen into the tab. And when I tried with the slightest pressure they just popped off. I threw them away and went with the large black rubber bands - 2 on the sides and 2 on the top/bottom. This does the trick perfectly, as another reviewer said.One other note - I was a little disappointed in a few larger air bubbles but noticed you could remove them easily by lifting the screen from the bottom and slowly setting back down. Be sure to clean the screens on both sides with a damp soft cloth to remove smudges and dust.Once they are clean and affixed they work great.Finally, be aware that there is a glossy side and a matte side, either of which will work for privacy. But if you want to eliminate glare you'll need to use the matte side. 5
