This is going to be OT (both with regards to this thread, and the particular forum) - but since we're at screen protection, here is another question:

- for monitor like the Marshall 70P (with only 250 nits brightness), is it better to use the glossy or matte protector?

The matte one is supposed to reduce reflections, while the glossy one is supposed to better preserve contrast and colors... Difficult choice, so I'd do with some advise from those who actually tried both!

Hi Piotr,

Well this is my take. If outdoors even with a sunhood I prefer the matte as it reducing the reflections. If Im working indoors (studio) then the glossy would be best over matte, however if I can get away without either then thatd be my preferred choice. I often have someone probing the screen with their finger (picture it).

Nano/XDR screen protection

Hello All, from day one of our first XDR arriving in january 2009 we had laser cut several (so we had spare) clear polycarbonate pieces which we stuck on top of the lcd screen using very tiny pieces of double sided tape....12 months later the original protectors are still there(on both of our XDR's) ..not very pretty , but working brilliantly...the polycarbonate is solid, near unbreakable , cheap and replaceable.
have yet to put one on our Nano but we the photo you can just make out the screen protector given away by the dodgy double side tape holding it on...but it works..
cheers David
