Sorry guys, had church then lunch.
Thanks for the compliments. It just goes to show how this is the one area we all wish the e1705 did better in. Had Dell given the option for a gloss filter for the WXGA+ we wouldn't be here. And no, I do not think it would have hurt their Truelife sales. Options are always better for consumers.
The material is thin yet strong. I took a small trimmed off piece and tried to rip it with my teeth and couldn't. It's not super thin. I would guess the thickness slightly less than say, card stock. Yes you can crease it if you are not careful, and yes you can ding it if you arent careful. These sheets ship with a huge white paper backing attached. Then there is a very thin protective film attached to the surface of the filter. Once you attach the filter, you will need to take a small piece of tape, and from the edge, use the tape to carefully remove the protective film. It's rather easy. I've applied this to 3 laptops all ready, 2 e1705's and my old school Acer with fantastic results.
I can make these for 12", 14", 15", 16" and 17". Normal or Wide at those sizes.
Yes, I could make this for a 24" Desktop LCD, but I won't. I would have to basically carve up too much of one of these sheets. If they were cheaper, sure, not a problem but until I can find more of this material it just doesn't really make sense. I did cut one for my 19" Viewsonic Wide, that was not too bad material wise and it looks great.
I found a few more companies and made a few more calls. Not the most friendly people. I was asked, how did you get this number to, we do not have a sales dept. One guy even said, I do not know what that is sir. Haha. Next stop, 3M sales rep.
I think that most guys in my spot would use this as a way to make some fast cash. These forums have been a great source of information to me and as well as laughs ( The "eye lash" stuck in someones LCD, we all know it was really a pube.) While I cannot just crank these out for free and ship them ( I wish I could ) I will find a way to make time to get some of these made for others in these forums as part of my way of giving back to you guys.
Just send a PM, list your size and I will send directions. I will also include my heatware and ebay refs in my reponse. I do not want to have this thread locked because it turned into a "sales" thread.
