    Does anyone have any rec. on what they use to clean this screen? I usually use iKlear but it seems to be leaving a bit of a streaky residue.

    At Walmart pharmacy you can get boxes of lens wipes for glasses. I use them on my camera lenses, my glasses, and monitor and TV screens. Get the Walmart brand and save a few $$$.

    I've been using Invisible Glass with a MF towel and it works well.

    I use Rogge. It is officially recommended by several Makers who use LG panels.

    This monitor is a ***** to clean properly. Glossy and no glass, not good if you have OCD.

    I use a clean Apple microfiber cloth, with a very tiny bit of water. Make sure to wash your hands too, or the oils on your fingers will go through the damp cloth leaving streaks on the screen. Circular movements are better than straight ones. Don't press too hard, there is no glass protecting the screen.

    I don't use any cleaning products, learned my lesson after using one on an iMac glass screen - resulting in huge streaks than wouldn't come off no matter how much I rubbed. Took me 2 hours to get rid of them.

    I clean mine every 6 months or so - for normal dusting I use a Pledge/Pronto fluffy duster.

    Edit: make sure you dust it first before using a cloth on it, or the dust particles will act like sandpaper and potentially damage the screen.

    Are you cleaning the screen while it's still warm? If so, try doing it when the screen is completely cool.

    a good set of microfiber clothes and distilled water, just a little spot of it when needed and use a dry microfiber to complete.
