A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...
Is there an anti reflective coating which can be applied to a 19 inch monitor that has too much glare from overhead lights?
-submitted by curious
Yes. There is a do-it-yourself anti-glare coating available for reducing the glare from ambient room lighting on glass screens.
Vision Clear USA has a product available called Glare Buster, which claims to reduce glare by up to 96%. The product comes in the form of an aerosol that you apply to your screen. Though it indicates that it's for use with TVs, you could probably use it on a CRT PC monitor as well.
Though I've never used this product, a 6 oz. can is only 19.95, which isn't a huge loss if it doesn't work as well as claimed. Plus, you'll have enough left over to apply it to every tube TV in your neighborhood.
