The below review is for the Black Screen Privacy Screen Eye Strain / Headache Disaster
I purchased a different version of the 3M Privacy filter for my Touch Screen Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga and aside from some bubbles that I can't get rid of, it does the job and I thought this product would be a great addition for my 2nd laptop.
This version I purchased for my Lenovo Thinkpad T540P however is a disaster, it doesn't matter how you mount it, it blurs the screen and creates "wavelength" lines across it like you can see on old TV monitors when viewed with a camera.
No way I could sit in front of this all day, would make me crazy. Just looking at it for a minute and I can feel the eye strain... I'm going to try and order the more expensive gold one in hopes that it does not do this as the one on my Thinkpad Yoga does not do this.
See the picture for yourself, this not just what the camera see's, I see it as well... Buyer Beware...
I used to buy 3M filters for the company I worked for 10 years back, They worked great and were very expensive. I didn't think of buying one for my own because I knew the price tag was prohibitive. So I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this ones at accessible prices. I got one immediately.
Long story short, this filter does not work as I remember they did. Right now I am holding my laptop on an angle well over 45 degrees from perpendicular and I can perfectly see the whole screen. At maybe 60 degrees I can start seeing some shadowing on the far side of the screen. Only very close to 90 degrees the screen becomes dark.
I said dark, not blank. You can still see graphics on it. So it would work if you are trying to block someone from reading your email, but not if you are trying to block them from seeing your pictures.
Back then, I remember that if I was not perfectly aligned to my filter I could not see anything. Even more, with a wide screen the...
The privacy screen itself works pretty well - matte side. However, the plastic tabs that are used to adhere the privacy screen to the laptop are terrible. It's a hard plastic with some double-sided tape on it. Because it's hard plastic, it doesn't really accommodate for the thickness of the privacy screen, and doesn't stick flat on the screen. Also the stickiness wasn't evenly distributed on all the plastic tabs. In the end, I threw out the hard plastic tabs, and just put some pieces of regular double-sided tape.
I have a touch screen laptop, and with the privacy screen on, the touch sensitivity is not as good. Strong tap are registered, but soft swipes on the screen doesn't always register.
