    I just bought a bottle of iKlear. The microfiber doesn't seem even close to how nice the one that came with my new iMac at work is, and there's sewn edges on it which I've seen warnings about. I only see mentioned that it can be used specifically with glossy MB, MBP and iMac screens, it doesn't say matte anywhere. There's also a warning about using it on screens that have an anti-glare coating.

    I've got a 17'' MBP with a matte screen, purchased in September '07. Seems obvious that it should be fine but I just want to double check, is it OK to use iKlear on it?

    I've used it on my matte screen before and it does a wonderful job.

    Same here. Have used it many, many times on matte screens. No problems.

    I use the iKlear on my glossy screen and it works great, but a serious pain to buff out.

    I've never had a problem with iKlear on my matte screns. If it smears, either the screen has a wealth of gunk on it or the cloth you're using is inundated with oil and grease from prior cleanings.

    and i'm looking at the bottle right now...if it says powerbook, cinema display anywhere or ibook then its safe (which it does). those only used matte screens.

    monster cable makes a much better LCD cleaner, iklear is ok, but its doesn't work as well

    heres a small bottle of it, i cant find the larger one right now

    the cloth it comes with is much better than the iKlear ones

    A microfiber cloth + rubbing alcohol works jsut as well as commercial products.
