And other people around the web seem to concur. CRT monitors emit radiation, a small part of which is X-Ray, but at levels far below the safety threshold so are not in any way dangerous. LED monitors convert almost all energy to light, very little is given off as heat (infrared) radiation, which is harmless in this context anyway.

Regarding UV radiation, CRTs emit tiny amounts (will not damage eyes even after a lifetime of viewing), but LCD monitors emit none at all. See hither: http://www.ehow.com/way_5567151_do-screens-emit-uv-light.html


So there is nothing to worry about, you won't get radiation damage by removing the anti-glare layer!

Done a little research, but it appears that LED back-lit monitors would produce very little UV radiation. Nothing to worry about. From what I've read, CCFL back-lit may give off a bit more. But hardly any monitors produced in the last few years use CCFL's anymore.

Good read:

Yeah, I was thinking about that the other night. A CCFL wouldn't give off anymore radiation then a normal fluorescent light bulb.

Although people do not normally look directly at fluorescent light bulbs for hours on end every day wink.gif

Hey Vega! I never tried playing with the inner components of a monitor or any knowledge on that area. I'm thinking of trying out what you did here.

What are the equipment I need to get started? Like I don't understand the "polarized" part of this thread. This is my thought, open compartments, take off anti-glare film and done! hahahahha

Yes that is all it is, I would say you would like to have some soft pry tools so you can remove the monitor bezel without scratching everything.

Apart from that, a screwdriver set will do the rest. Of course you need water, and some sort of paper towels. You just open the casing, removed the LCD screen, stick wet towels on it, peel up a layer after 5 hours.

Hey fellas, seems like a cool project going to give it a shot myself. Did I miss something or was it just distilled water to remove any excess adhesive after you do the soak and film removal?

Ya, as long as you take your time and don't crack the plastic or scratch anything. The method for doing the mod is the same for all monitors. Fortunately the QE has a robust gloss polarizer which I have cleaned thoroughly and shows no sign of damage. Although, I would still recommend cleaning it more gently than a screen with a protective film layer. There was no after-glue to remove on my QE when the matte film was removed. It worked out really well.

About how long did you let it soak Vega, for the QE?

Vega, how do the frame thicknesses of these Asus' compare to say the Samsung SA23750s? I'm sure you are probably already going down the path of eyefinity lightboost eyegasm so I figured you would know. I'm considering going down this path as well.
