And if you keep the filter and your screen clean, you can reposition it hundreds of times.

Travel extensively for work and this is a great privacy filter screen product. Glad to see 3M quality in the Apple store.

    It ships with 12 attachment adhesive strips, and this option is an easy install. But, the instructions that are in the the inbox material also include instructions for privacy slide mounting adhesive tab strips as well. Unfortunately this is not part of the in box whatsoever. Found myself thinking I was missing part of the product. From there, I took another look at the packaging. Unfortunately the packaging doesn't really tell you exactly what is in the box, other than "4 ITEMS".

    For $34.95, I'd think you could include both installation product options for the customer.

    I've been using the screen filter for several months, and every time I ask my peers in lectures to test whether the filter actuall I've been using the screen filter for several months, and every time I ask my peers in lectures to test whether the filter actually makes it harder for them look at what I'm doing, they are able to tell me exactly what I am doing at that moment. This is done without them having to turn their face towards my screen; all it took for them was to just shift their eyes and my screen was completely vulnerable. I usually have my screen light on low setting, so again, I tried to make it as hard as possible for them to look at my screen. I DO NOT recommend this product.

When i received the product I was eager to install it. Upon installation i was very disappointed and would have never bought the product had I known the outcome. I strongly advise all to steer clear from this item.

    This filter does not properly fit the 2009 MacBook Pro. I wanted this product for the anti-glare as This filter does not properly fit the 2009 MacBook Pro. I wanted this product for the anti-glare aspect, not for privacy. One side of the filter is for anti-glare, and the other side is for privacy. I have a 2009 13" MacBook Pro and the filter does not fit properly. It comes with two-sided tape for attaching it; I was expecting the kind that uses static to attach. You need to tape the filter to the screen so it covers everything and doesn't fall off, but doing this leaves about a half inch of the MacBook Pro screen unprotected around the perimeter. (The black border on the computer screen unprotected.)

    In my opinion, using the anti-glare side of the filter does not cut the glare enough to justify how bad it makes the screen look. I would estimate it cuts the *resolution* at least by 30%. I would estimate that the filter cuts the *glare* by about 10%.

    HOWEVER, the privacy side of the filter works as advertised; it blacks out the screen as the viewing angle widens, but you still need to tape it to the screen.

    Even if this filter fit correctly, I would have still returned it because it doesn't cut the glare enough to justify lessening the resolution as much as it does.
    However, if it fit correctly and I needed a privacy screen, this would be a good product.

    I've just got this filter today. I was bit worried about the reduced brightness at first as the filt I've just got this filter today. I was bit worried about the reduced brightness at first as the filter appears to be virtually much darker than I expected. However, when I put it on, it doesn't seem to affect much. I have the brightness slightly less than halfway in a room with normal light and it is more than enough for me. Note that I use the matt side (as I hate glare and reflection). Would have loved to compare it side by side with the glossy one but don't think there's a big difference.

    All in all, the filter doesn't bother me at all with the brightness.
