Works well, but...
Product installs easily and works as described. Travel extensively for work and this is a great privacy filter screen product. Gla Product installs easily and works as described. Travel extensively for work and this is a great privacy filter screen product. Glad to see 3M quality in the Apple store.

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