    I'd love to know too if somebody has used this yet! Moshi usually makes
    First rate stuff and I hope this isn't an exception. Anyone?

    I just ordered one yesterday. I'll post some impressions after I receive it.

    What is wrong with the powersupport version?

    i don't know first hand but I know some who have it, and they seem to think it works really well. They said it went on really easy. and completely reduced the glare. I'm sure it wont be as good as a AG screen but for a quick, inexpensive fix it seems to work pretty well.

    The only part that sticks to the screen is the outside border around the black bezel, the screen area doesn't stick at all.

    How is the text? Is it blurry? How about the overall screen color quality? I might buy this if it is as good as it sounds:).

    i saw it used in a mac store on a 15" glossy. it did entirely eliminate glare, which is great, but also made the screen look noticeably different. a little less bright, and a little less sharp. definetely nothing like the matte 17". i prefer matte screens but i would probably just leave a glossy one glossy rather than this particular option, at least until it is improved a bit.

    I totally agree with this... it's not worth it. I have it and wish I hadn't bought it. It does reduce the glare but also significantly lowers the viewing quality.

    It's a given that these various anti-glare options will impact viewing quality. There's no way they are going to equal a quality matte screen no matter what the marketing material says. For those of us who can't handle the glare either because of our eyes or our working environment, what I'd love to know is whether or not there is any substantial difference between the PowerSupport, Moshi, Photodon, and ViewGuard solutions or not. To me that is the major question for people that simply have to reduce the glare, and I've never been able to get a clear answer for it and I've only personally had experience with PowerSupport.

    Were the screen protectors made by Moshi?

    I have the ivisor for the uMBP. It doesn't seem that bad.

    Some idiot on YouTube™ spent 15 minutes reviewing the thing. From the 15 minute review, which consisted of 7 minutes of reading and opening the package it would seem, he said it was still sharp. I am not sure he would be qualified to make that determination because even with his basement video studio setup I could see the screen colors were muted. I could not tell sharpness because it was of course a YouTube™ video.

    Is there any way you could take a shot of the screen? I have the PowerSupport which works great on the glare side but adds a lot of noise (aka speckling) and graininess. I can deal with muted colors fine, but the noise is really annoying me...

    Does the Moshi cover add noise and speckling to the screen (it's particularly noticeable on white and other very light colors)?

    I can take some pics but they will be cellphone quality.

    There is noise and speckling, much like a tablet with a digitizer layer. The muted colors and noise are visible unfortunately.

    By any chance have you seen other films and can you comment on whether it's better or worse? Most comments I've seen from people that have the iVisor are positive, but there's not a lot out there so I'm curious if it's any better than the PowerSupport. Years ago I had a PowerSupport film on an MacBook and the speckling was not nearly this bad.

    I've not had the chance to check out the PowerSupport anti-glare. I've heard they have them i some Apple stores to check out, if I come across it I'll update the thread and let you know.
