How To: Remove Anti-Glare Coating from a Dell U2312HM Monitor (and others) - Page 4

post #31 of 145
I would love to do this on my ZR30W.... would love darker blacks:thumb:

I've never been bothered by the AG coating and the room my computer is in is pretty bright, so it would be a no go for me. Plus, it looks like a lot of people have issues with this wrecking the monitor.

But that doesn't mean the actual display of the content is changing, something that the AG coating DOES cause because there's no way simple way to avoid it's effect aside from removing the coating. If you look at the white area of an image on an AG coated monitor you'll notice a dirty sparkling effect. Again, some people don't care but others are extremely bothered by it, just as you are bothered by reflections whereas I am not.
I don't work in bright lit settings.
Then why crap up the thread? Obviously this mod is not for you.

Hate to bust your bubble, but reflection/glare does effect color accuracy. Ask any pro graphics designer or photo editor. When editing colors you need to be-able to see the color on the display properly in order to get the result you're looking for.

Also, most pro graphics designers or photo editors do not want to shift the angle of the monitor or there head to ensure they got the proper color tone/tints/etc.

If you're a graphic designer you're not doing this mod and you know exactly what the implications of a glossy screen are; Why are you even in this thread? To warn professionals about modifying their monitors? Seriously, your arguments are pointless, just stop.

Edit: It's affect, not effect. And their, not there.

Why is your mod in this section and not the mod section? Funny! maybe here http://www.overclock.net/f/17/other-hardware-mods next time and you will get response from people interested in modding only.

I am pointing out that your mod is pointless and only a fool would go and buy a non-glossy IPS display and mod it like you did. Just, look at the person who destroy their display (arctg).

Guess! What? If you're not a graphic designer, then you have no need for an IPS monitor with AG coat. So why buy one then? Looks like someone failed to do a-bit of research.

Wow! grammar error! I could care less about it. I bet I could go through all your post and find hundreds of grammar errors and even a-lot of poor decisions and miss-info. Will you teach me how to be a good grammar police-child?

In the news: Noob buys IPS and removes AG coat void warranty rather than just buy a glossy display. Even better! Now you have to clean it with super extra care and it will eventually start to show defects over time.

Noob-tastic award goes to you!

I reckon you seem upset about something. Sorry about that.

I just did this to a brand new Asus 24" monitor that I bought on sale for $150, I was kind of disapointed with the anti glare on it compared to my high end dell monitor ( which still appears clean looking ) and now the Asus looks better.

Yes its super glossy, but I like that, and the screen is much brighter.

Thanks for your guide!

Dude, shove it. No one cares about your opinions. Certainly no one on the internet, on a website focused on modifying computer hardware (guess what pal, that's what overclocking is), and certainly not when your opinion is nothing more than bashing someone else's opinion on how they prefer to modify their computer hardware. Give it a break.

PS - Kid's aren't grammar police, adults who are sick of kids on the internet crying about their lack of care for grammar are.

Let us know how it goes, seems like the AG on the 2412 is the only thing I can complain about. Good luck.
