    I bought this because I often work on things that should not be seen by others, especially in public places like planes and airpor I bought this because I often work on things that should not be seen by others, especially in public places like planes and airports generally, being a frequent traveler. I bought the 4 way privacy screen for my iPhone which is also made by 3M and LOVED IT. If the phone is on and you are not in front of it you see nothing but black. Indeed you cannot even tell the phone is on. Naturally, I assumed this product would produce the same affect. How wrong I was. Anyone to the left or right sees a dim screen not a darkened screen and can fully see enough shapes and text to know at what you are currently looking and on what you are working. I noted another review indicated that the filter does scratch. This was certainly true of the one for my iPhone but I have learned not to take this one off to avoid that reality. The dimming affect is also an unfortunate byproduct. It almost seems silly to buy a Retina screen just to diminish what makes it special but if privacy is important this is a necessary evil. Few included strips is not great but is a money making decision that does not consider the customer. Big surprise. Overall, I consider this to be an epic fail by 3M, which I know from experience possesses the technology to make a much much better product. Caveat emptor (buyer beware)!

  • Nice product however Gold would be wicked

    First time using such a product. Must say, quite straight forward to install. The anti-glare is awesome, the privacy is OK, not as First time using such a product. Must say, quite straight forward to install. The anti-glare is awesome, the privacy is OK, not as good as I thought it would be. Yes it dims the screen, but you will only notice that at night and the glare reduction makes up for the slight dimness. I am using the Matte side as the viewing surface.

    There is a gold version, that would look wicked

    Also, if you use a keyboard protector, there are closing issues, but once you leave it closed for a while, the keyboard protector and the privacy screen kinda adjust themselves.

    Worth buying

    This will give you the privacy you need if you are worried about people sitting next to you (right or left), but if you just step This will give you the privacy you need if you are worried about people sitting next to you (right or left), but if you just step a foot away from your computer or directly in front of it (imagine a lecture hall or a library), then its useless- all people will be able to see what you are looking at on your screen. Also, there is a significant amount of dimming effect so even if you had your screen on max brightness you'll have to take sometime getting used to the dimness of the screen-
    otherwise its OK also given that you are able to remove and reattach the screen as needed using the sticker strips provided in the box- I would not recommend getting this screen- doesn't really do its job for what I was expecting it to do.
