  • Summary: I bought this product a year ago to use it on my school work and my job when editing pictures and/or editing footage on public places, and it really does the work. I've had friends telling me that they can't even see my screen when they are sitting right next to me. Of course as every other product this has it's flaws. I'll explain that in a bit but first let me tell you the things I really liked about this product.

Needed modifying to fit

Stewart K, Apple Store

  • Summary: Brought this product and straight away it was clear that the screen wasn't alined to the Macbook Pro 15'. I had to modify the screen to fit for the camera and this shouldn't need to be done.. I completed the survey and asked to be contacted but that was 4 week ago. Sadly it seems Apple is not good on following up survey results. Once fitted the product does its job however the bear-bug is however a screen overlay that is displeasing to the eye.

Not Worth

  • Summary: After applying this filter you will not have the same clarity of the retina screen as it is. The privacy feature of the protector is good. its a thick film on a screen that also reduces the brightness. For me its not worth 55 bucks.

Not Very Effective

Theodore L, Apple Store

  • Summary: I've been using the screen filter for several months, and every time I ask my peers in lectures to test whether the filter actually makes it harder for them look at what I'm doing, they are able to tell me exactly what I am doing at that moment. This is done without them having to turn their face towards my screen; all it took for them was to just shift their eyes and my screen was completely vulnerable.

It is as advertised

christopher M, Apple Store

  • Summary: This product is exactly what it is advertised as. Its a privacy filter. It darkens the screen dramatically, and prevents viewing from the sides. I was looking more for an anti-glare screen cover like i have on my iPhone(my fault, not product's). I rated this 3 stars because I don't particularly like it. It attaches with adhesive strips, which I don't like. It darkens the screen, and makes things difficult to see, which I don't like.

Works well, but...

Mike W, Apple Store

  • Summary: Product installs easily and works as described. Travel extensively for work and this is a great privacy filter screen product. Glad to see 3M quality in the Apple store. It ships with 12 attachment adhesive strips, and this option is an easy install. But, the instructions that are in the the inbox material also include instructions for privacy slide mounting adhesive tab strips as well. Unfortunately this is not part of the in box whatsoever.
