Removing the Anti Glare coating on U2711

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
After serious search on the internet for the best monitor, i found Dell UltraSharp U2711 and compared it to a Apple LED Cinema Display

DELL Dell UltraSharp U2711 has more color then Apple LED Cinema Display,


DELL Dell UltraSharp U2711 has HDMI, DisplayPort with audio, DVI-D (HDCP), ports USB and VGA. this moitor is just the best, élégant monitor,

Apple LED Cinema Display, has less color and only Mini DisplayPort, and is complicate to get the resulition in windows

the only problem on this monitor was the bad Anti Glare coating , What is supposed to be white looks like to be covered in rainbow-colored dust, which simply makes the display inadequate for use

Note that doing this probably voids the warranty.

please watch this video before you do any thing,
this video was my guid

it took me 5 to 6 hour to remove the Anti Glare coating

hi
No, i don't have any problem, i am enjoing it , maybe those people did mistake DURING THE PROCESS,
note: you have to be very patient to do it,
the Anti Glare coating film came easy with me, i lefted it 5 to 6 h and then started peeling it diagonally,
and then i leaned it with very very soft peace of textile ( used to clean expensive glasses)

cleaned it about 20m, beasue when u take off a sticker u can see (nano glue on the surface)

good chance

I'm sorry to hear that man. I think I would be more open to trying this with a 100 dollar monitor, but not for 1000 USD.

Should a clear film be put back after taking off the anti glare film?

You can purchase a new screen for it, so it's not a total loss. All screens that have the coats remove will show some kind of damage overtime (Some just take longer than others). You should have purchase a non-anti-glare monitor.

If I were you I'd do two things:
1. get one of those Korean IPS screens and see if I can put the panel from one of them (Preferably the non-tempered glass Catleap since its one of the cheapest and is easy to take apart) into the dell since the dell has a massive amount of imputs, has a better stand, etc.
2. Take the polarized layer off and put on a new 27" one that you can hopefully come across on the internet. If you can do that you might as well get a glossy screen layer as well to protect the polarized layer
