    They are said to reduce glare by just 25% but preserves the sharpness/color of the display as well as being fingerprint resistant (I think this may be similar to Power Support's HD anti-glare screen protectors for iPhone 4).

    I was wondering if anyone has tried them as a screen protector and if the 25% screen glare cut if noticeable... thanks!

    Oh and link here to the product:

    are there any example photos of the MXH online?

    I'd be interested in seeing how much it reduces the glare and how it effects screen image quality.

    So I decided to order the HD protectors for my Macbook Pro 13 inch and bit the $18 priority shipping to Canada. I'll see if I can post a review in this thread when it arrives.

    can i assume that this is called "HD" because it wont make the text on the screen fuzzy like other screen protectors?

    It's not as grainy, but it also doesn't reduce glare as significantly. Check the post by photodon in this post if you want to see a comparison photo.

    glad to hear it, looking forward to your review.

    I'm torn between ordering the MXH HD vs. the MXT, leaning towards the MXH, but concerned it won't cut the glare down in any significant way.

    Hello,
    Thanks for the review sidetracked.

    I used to have a Photodon anti-glare for my TM2. It worked really well in cutting down reflections, and writing on it with the stylus felt much better but I wasn't happy with how bad the touch experience was with it so I binned it.

    Do Exim do an anti-glare protector and if so has anyone used one?


    Thanks

    What about the MXA how much does that affect the reflections as im finding it a bit confusing.

    It says "Anti-reflect technology twists the light 90 degrees as it passes through the film".

    but on the Film Type Comparison Chart the glare reduction is not stated.

    Is there any product for a 17" unibody screen? I had my late 09 for a long time and there were almost no products for the screen

    mxulive,

    Have you installed and used the HD film yet? Any chance you could review it? I have an MBP 13" and wish it were offered with a non-glossy screen; yet the films I've seen reviewed have been panned. I haven't read about the one you ordered, so I would sure like to hear what you think of it.

    Thanks

    Don't be cheap and pay the extra money to get the real High Res Anti-Glare.

    Photodon, I hope you will read this. I have a question for you. On the 13" MacBook Pro, does the MXH screen protector cover the black border or just the viewable area of the actual screen?

    MultiMediaWill,

    Thanks for assuming we are all cheap, but that is not always the case. I cannot use a high-res screen, and that is currently the only way to get an anti-glare screen. Also, I don't need the added size of a 15" pro over my 13" pro anyway.

    So, the only way to take care of the glare is to look into a film.

    Cheapness has nothing to do with it, as I would *gladly* pay extra for an anti-glare screen on my "normal res" 13-er.

    Photodon poor instructions manual and high difficulty

    Hi

    I have just bought the photodon hd anti glare film for my macbook 13 inches and i have to say that i am totally unsatisfied with it.

    First of all the instructions manual is not clear as to how to install the film without letting annoying bubbles on the screen. I have it now installed and I have to deal with these bubbles all over the screen.
    Also the edges dont fit perfectly and theres is air all around the edges of the screen.

    The matte effect doesnt imitate a perfect matte treatment of the screen .

    Last , it is impossible to reinstall the film correctly as apparently the film looses its power to stick to the screen after first use.

    I have to say that i bought it online and i had to pay a lot of money for this peace of plastic.

    It is sad that they did not think about how difficult it is really to install the film.

    I am going to try the Moshi brand one because i have read it is much better.


    You are advised.
