By _RST HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on August 1, 2012
Size: 11-InchColor: Gold Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First off, this is a GREAT great privacy filter. Precision cut & fit to the Macbook Air 11 (11.6) screen. It fits perfectly, looks great (when obscuring) and works great and fits right in the LCD tray and flush with the device. It fits in a different way & better than I expected. The color doesn't look odd or off with the computer as I expected it to. The picture isn't accurate shown with the product-- I've uploaded two pictures.

The visual clarity and quality of the screen protector feels optically perfect. No distortion, no fuzziness or appearing downgrading of the resolution due to the plastic itself. There are two imperfections though-- there is a tiny 3M emblem made into the plastic that I detest, and the tape adhesive isn't invisible once the screen protector is applied. I used the minimal amount and put it at the bottom but still it's not "perfectly invisible" as I'd prefer.

There is also the option to adhere some "hold it in" tabs to the sides if you want to install/uninstall the filter regularly.

The adhesive process is a pain. You have to take a tab on a card, stick it to another tab to release, apply, peel the second side cover, etc. I see why they included so many extras in the kit-- you'll waste some figuring out how it works. I feel like this could have easily been solved by pre-applying the adhesive strips to the screen with removeable tabs, but I'm sure some engineer somewhere whose never used the product in the real world has a reason they wouldn't do that... Seems like they should make some cling property or some other way to adhere it-- static maybe?

In summary, a very good premium thick clear privacy screen with an install process that's a bit of a pain.

Size: 11-InchColor: Gold Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I chose this item because I hate when you have a pricey notebook and you use a normal privacy filter which makes your notebook look cheap because of the lack of viewing angle. This 3M Gold Privacy Filter fixes that and makes the people looking at your screen see pretty and high end looking gold--not just a dark screen.

Now I don't know why computer companies don't build this technology into the actual screens so you don't have to attach something and get it dirty, etc. But until that day comes, you are stuck with this type of device if you want to protect your computing from prying eyes.

Any device that sits on top of your screen will:

1.) Block some light/brightness. That can mean you use more battery power to turn up the brightness when using the filter. This is a trade off with all privacy filters and this 3M did not seem to require any more adjustment than other filters.

2.) Lesson the clarity a bit. Normally you won't notice once you are use to it but if you plan to use the clips to remove the filter a lot, you might notice the difference. Again, it isn't a big deal on this 3M filter but it is something to adjust to.

3.) Force you to deal with how the filter attaches. Some filters come with adhesive all around the edge of the filter, others like this one, come with tape for the edges or clips for the sides.

For me, this 3M filter received 4 stars because of how the filter attaches. The clips are bulky and while you may not have the filter on all the time, you have those clunky clips to look at all the time. The clips also encourage you to remove the filter more often which means adjusting (or getting used to changes in) brightness and clarity changes. The tape is worse and stands out. It seems like such a shame to have a high end filter that attaches by low end (looking) methods.

But for me, the gold makes up for that weakness and I will still use this instead of my other filters.

Ok so I was convinced to buy this off of all the other reviews. I was very skeptical, especially when I read how it was applied. I work with computers and other electronics daily for more than 12hours a day and the idea of placing 2 thin strips of tape between the filter and an LCD screen just didn't seem like it would add up. I am not sure what other people\s standards are for quality but I know I don't like to be distracted by any distortion. pretty much anything that is going to catch my eye and cause my focus to drift from my work.

To be honest i wouldn't have even given this one star if I wasn't forced too. The first thing I noticed when I pulled the filter out of its packaging was that 3M had to stamp their name in the filter itself. Right at the top, off center is a heat stamp of the 3M logo which shows up when you turn the screen on. I first decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and try the tape first. The first issue I had was you pretty much need to be in a clean room when applying these. The filter, after sitting in plastic for who knows how long has picked up just enough static to attract large amounts of dust. I wasted the first two strips trying to apply them without causing any bulges or smears. Anyone who has ever applied a screen protector to their phone knows that even the smallest speck of dust can cause a noticeable defect in the screen's appearance. Once I got the strips in place and the filter applied to the screen, I was appalled by the way it made my screen work. I noticed both strips as they clearly distorted and warped the image around them. I also tried the so called thin tabs. These are supposed to go on the frame of the screen so you can easily remove and replace the filter at will.
