Replacing the glossy screen of my laptop with a matte screen - Page 2

post #11 of 19

I've just googled for http://www.google.com/search?q=N184H6-L02%20matte in the meantime which gave me several relevant results but I'm still worried about the second point that I've raised in my previous post.

Well is the screen under the glass glossy or matte, because if you have a glossy piece of glass over top of your screen, it won't matter what you do, it will be glossy.

I would see if the screen is matte or glossy under the glass, you are going to need to remove that glass somehow to get the matte you want.

The screen under the glass is glossy.

I can remove the glass on top of the screen but that'd look pretty lame and nothing would protect the screen in this case. I wonder whether there are matte glasses or are all matte screens directly exposed to the outside world.

You know most laptops don't have anything over top of the screen. Most of them just have the panel as is. so it wouldn't really be an issue.

Although I don't know about most laptops but in principle I guess you're right.

I can only foresee a minor visual glitch as the screen side surface of the laptop will have a small, 1mm hole in it as the glass will be removed. It shouldn't be a huge deal though.

Not an issue. My screen on my laptop is set back a few mm because it is a tablet and sits behind a the tablet part. It doesn't really effect the viewing pleasure unless you are actually trying to look for the gap.

Ok, I won't worry about the glass anymore.

The last issue that worries me is when searching for http://www.google.com/search?q=N184H6-L02%20matte I seem to get invalid results. There are four different revisions of this display: A1, A2, C1, C2. The problem is that I can see the C1 revision sold as matte which calls for bull**** since I have the exact same revision and it's glossy for sure.

I'm not sure who should I trust. The datasheet doesn't provide any information about these revision numbers.

It seems to me that most of the LCD search results have been edited to feature glossy finish instead of matte. I feel that the situation is pretty hopeless for me to find a matte screen but if anybody has any ideas, please let me know.

Thanks.
