"Today we’re seeing laptop and monitor screen technology incorporating higher screen resolutions and rapidly moving toward touchscreens. While these advancements increase the usefulness of the device, they also have a downside of causing increased screen glare issues due to the glass surfaces needed for these new displays"

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--From under the harsh florescent lights found in office buildings to the bright, natural rays coming through the window of a coffee shop, today’s workforce is constantly viewing information on their computer screens in less than optimal lighting situations. This, coupled with a rise in devices with glossy displays being released by computer manufacturers, has forced employees to close the blinds, change their computer’s angle or even move the physical location of their workstation to avoid a harsh screen glare. Addressing the demand of workers needing a solution that eliminates glare on their laptop screens and desktop monitors, 3M introduces new Anti-Glare Filters to enhance the viewing experience for users.

Product Benefits:

  • Helps reduce glare and mirror-like reflections, making screens easier to view in high-glare situations.
  • Easy to apply, remove and re-attach with no bubbles.
  • Compatible with most touch-screen displays.
  • Provides screen protection against scratches, dust and dirt and also hides fingerprints.
  • Includes cleaning cloth and two forms of attachment options: washable optically clear adhesive strips or slide mount tabs.
  • Lightweight, thin, frameless design.
  • Limited one-year warranty.

“Today we’re seeing laptop and monitor screen technology incorporating higher screen resolutions and rapidly moving toward touchscreens. While these advancements increase the usefulness of the device, they also have a downside of causing increased screen glare issues due to the glass surfaces needed for these new displays,” said Nicola Stevens, Business Director, Specialty Display Systems Business Unit. “3M Anti-Glare Filters not only reduce screen glare in ambient and brighter lighting, but also ensure that screen resolution remains crisp and clear.”

3M Anti-Glare Filters are now available on Amazon.com, Shop3M.com and other authorized 3M resellers for laptops and desktop monitors. These filters cost $35.99 - $43.99 for laptops and $69.99 - $97.99 for desktop monitors. For more information, visit 3Mscreens.com/anti-glare and follow us on Spiceworks.
