iVisor AG – Matte Screen for Glossy Macs

March 18, 2010

iVisor AGI’m not a fan of the latest trend toward glossy laptop displays.  Computer manufactures have adopted the glossy screen because it enhances the look of pictures and videos which appeals to your average consumer. For writers and heavy text users…not so much!  Like most writers who stare at a computer screen for hours on end, the glare makes it hard to focus the eyes.  Not to mention it reeks havoc on graphic designers, movie editors and photographers, but that’s another blog. 

I was glad to see Apple take hold of its senses and add the matte display option for the unibody 15" and 17" MacBook Pro, but for those of you who ordered before this option was available or simply elected to forgo the matte there’s still hope.  Moshistore.com has created the iVisor AG – an advanced anti-reflective screen protector.  Not only does it minimize eye-crossing surface glare but it protects your monitor from nicks, scratches and fingerprints. Starting at $35, the iVisor AG can be purchased for the 13" and 15" MacBook displays. 

I really like this product for three reasons:

1) Anti-reflective (which I already discussed)

2) Easy to install

3) Easy to remove

I’ve used screen protectors on my tablet PCs for years.  The biggest problem is air bubbles! Moshi has a patented technology in place that eliminates the bubble thing.  Brilliant.  You can remove the screen protector and reapply without leaving a sticky residue. 

In sum…if you’re a writer with a glossy MacBook screen and you tend to get headaches, watery eyes or have trouble focusing, there’s a high probability it’s your screen.  iVisor AG is a simple, cheap solution that doesn’t entail doctor’s visits or ordering a new Mac.

I bought a Macbook about six months ago. I write about 6 hours a day and like you said, the glare starts to drive me loco after about 2 hours. Thanks for posting this. I already placed my order.
