    Anti Glare Screen(s) / filters

    I've just moved office and now get some really bad glare from the sun coming through the door (which naturally means I can't always close the blind on it.)
    I was looking for an anti glare filter to put over my 23" desktop monitor except that the only results I found were ... well more expensive than replacing the screen. (£100-£140)

    To that end, has anyone found any decent desktop screens with Anti-Glare? Or a reasonably priced filter?

    The filter for the laptop (at 17" seems to be a reasonable price (£30-£40))

    5 Star CCS20552 Screen Filter Glass Anti Glare Radiation Static CRT Frame and 16-17 inch LCD - Black
    £39.88


    3M Lightweight LCD framed Privacy filter suitable for 23 - 25 inch widescreen LCD displays 16:9 - PF324WHY
    £129.99

    Well, in fact the 3M >>privacy<< filter does something against glaring and reflecting: but it also makes it nearly impossible to see anything on the screen while not being at a 90° angle in front of it.

    I would recommend to reposition the desk: no windows / doors in front / back of you, the Light source at 90° angle towards the monitor.
    Also much cheaper and way more fun

    That should be ok, I'm literally right in-front it ;-) So as long as its a removable one and not a cheap "stick it to the screen with double-sided tape" job, I'll be fine with that.

    Unfortunately... not an option, as it has just been done.
