    yes ... it is meant for earthing ... dont use anti-glare screen without earthng ... it wont do any good ... it must be a U shaped thing right? just screw it with any of your monitor/cpu screws ... it will serve the earthing purpose ...

    I havent ever used an anti-glare screen.

    This might sound silly, but i have a query. I have seen in certain banks that a darkened panel is fixed in front of the monitor. Is that an anti-glare screen? That does not have any metal wires attached to it..

    Yes,people in banks and all have anti glare screen attached to their systems.I reckon it does help to some extent.

    But the anti-glare screens which i mentioned are just translucent plastic pieces. No wires are attached to them. They are supported with the help of two strings with hooks and the hooks are placed in the monitor vents..

    i dont think these plastic anti glare screens serves much purpose ... earthing wires are provided with glass anti glare screens for earthing the deposited static electricity on the screen ...

    have a look ... :



    this U shaped thing needs to be fixed with any of the monitor/cpu screws ...

    it is not ... but supposed to be ... when you are using the screen why not use it to its full capability ... just fix the clip with any monitor/cpu/ups screw

    Static Electricity can be felt on Glass just as Metal ( as glass is made up many Metals and minerals) and due to radiation from monitor it gets accumulated on anti-glare screen and when you touch with your hands you can feel a slight static which i dont think is harmful but as a safety precaution the earthing is provided for your own safety.
    Anti Glare screen even protect from Ultra-Violet Rays of CRT monitor.

    In todays LCD glare is not a problem so fixing anti grane film will not help much, but then also they are available in the market.
    And Other type of screen which many people see now a days on TFT LCD are thin Plastic Films to work as anti-glare screen as LCD dont emit Heat as compared to CRT Monitors and radiation in them are not high as compared to CRT( Thats why when you touch LCD you dont feel much static also.) thats the reason they can be pasted on screen with their own glue and can be taken off for washing even just like mobile phone screen protectors.

    Another type of Film is Privacy film, which when fixed on your LCD, helps protect your privacy so other persons can't see what our are doing on your system from a angle.

    Please correct me if i am wrong on these topics.

    http://www.indiabroadband.net/comput...tml#post120307 amused me. According to it all the users using laptops with anti-glare screens *can become a joke himself* !!!

    It was done purposefully to enhance the privacy from peering thomases. Frankly i get irritated if someone else is peering into my laptop screen while i am working at it, and i guess most of the members would also feel likewise..

    I helps When you dont want anyone to see what are you doing on your system, especially if your are working on some secret projects and Offcourse porn also Lol.


    I my HP Pavillion Notebook DV6000, if someone tries to see from a angle the person will just see inverted colours as you are seeing Negatives, sometimes it looks annoying as if someone is seating with me but at an angle they complain that they are not able see the contents clearly. But at other times it looks beneficial.
