For privacy it is quite simply amazing! My colleagues at work are always teasing me saying "why are you staring at your monitor when it's turned off?" If you go off axis at all you literally think the monitor is off. But if you're sitting right in front of it, it looks great. Due to the size of this monitor (22") you do see a slight bit of the shading even looking straight on (i think it's unavoidable in this size given how the filter works its intention) but if you're doing normal computer work (documents, web pages etc) it's not noticeable after a minute. If you are a graphic artist, it might bug you a bit as you may not get an ultra accurate display of colors and/or resolution but the filter is easily removable if you opt not to use the included clear tape adhesive to mount it. I did end up using the tape because the filter didn't quite stay firmly mounted. (it bowed a bit on the sides) and unfortunately you can slightly see the little pieces of tape, but since they're on the sides, I don't really notice them. I would never use this at home but at work it has been worth every penny.
The bad part is that whoever designed the mounting system never actually installed or used it. It is absolutely the worst method imaginable. They use small, plastic tabs coated with sticky glue that you are supposed to stick to the sides and top and bottom of your screen with them overlapping onto the filter. It's hard to explain but there is no joggle in the tabs to hold the filter. As a result they only contact the filter and your screen on the very edge. I tried using double the number recommended and the filter still slipped off. Getting the residual glue off the monitor after realizing they were useless proved to be a task also.
The solution was to go to the local business store and purchase a bag of file folder rubber bands. These are large bands that are about 6 inches long to start with and of course will stretch. I used two on the top and two on the bottom. They come in black so they are not very noticeable. They work perfectly. If I want to take the filter off to view pictures in high resolution, it just slips out of the bands. Reinstalling it is a 10 second job.
I have seen the other filters that are almost 1/8 inch thick and of a waffle sort of construction and this one is far superior. I give the filter 5 plus stars and the mounting system a minus 10. Surely the design geniuses could have come up with the bands.
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.

Works great! One complaint is that the only way to attach the screen to my laptop was with the adhesive strips, which are visible and kind of unsightly. Does the job though.Published 1 month ago by bdette

Not exactly easy to figure out how to install since it did not come with directions. I finally just stuck it to the computer with the tabs which were included. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Cindy Tuohy
