        When i got this in the mail I though ... huh??

        It is such a simple idea, but makes a huge difference. I wish I had thought of it myself.

        Highly recommend.

        The Acratech Viewing Angle Gauge was easy to install. Seems to line my viewing angle correctly. After buying a monitor calibration tool, I needed to be able to post-process with my external monitor and the laptop monitor when traveling. Works great.

                Editing photos on a laptop is frustating because your viewing angle changes the look of the photo every time you move, with the angle gauge you can check with a glance the your angle is straight on

                      Comments about Viewing Angle Gauge (Silver):

                      I got the viewing angle gauge because was frustrated with my laptop's brightness and contracts changing when my angle of view changed while editing photos. The viewing gauge is well made and will not bend unless you put a lot of effort into it (although I haven't tested it). The gauge is attached by Velcro so a piece of Velcro will always be attached to your laptop. Also, alignment from center can very by a small amount when you take the gauge on and off, but I can't tell any difference in my brightness/contrast due to the small variation.

                      The instructions included direct you to a YouTube video to see it being installed. The instructions are very easy, but leave room for user error, if you're worried about exact placement. When I followed the instructions, the paper I was using kept slipping behind the plastic frame surrounding my screen which would throw off the center fold. (This make more sense once you watch the instruction video.)

                      My biggest "complaints" is the viewer is hard to see in low light and the brightness of your monitor will make it even harder to see.

                      I've only had the gauge for a couple of weeks now and it seems to doing what it's suppose to and I do have a consistent viewing angle which is making my photo editing easier.

                            Most PCs have screens that look very different depending on the viewing angle. This simple device solves the problem and assures that you are square to the screen which allows consistent image editing. A must for all photographers who edit images on their PC.

                              Comments about Viewing Angle Gauge (Silver):

                              I originally thought I was smart enough to set the correct viewing angle but my curiousity got the better of me and I ordered the gauge.

                              Dead simple to install. Measure the center of the vertical of your screen. Line up the pointy front of the gauge at that middle point. Peel off plastic cover and press sticky velcro to top of laptop.

                              From your viewing position adjust the screen so the front point of the triangle lines up with the slot in the back of the gauge. At that point your eyes are ninety degrees to the screen.

                              Need to stuff your laptop in a travelling bag ? Simply peel the gauge off it's velcro and store it. To reinstall simply press back on.

                              Although it only took me a few seconds to adjust the screen angle before, the addition of the gauge makes it much more straight forward and consistent.

                                      I edit all my photos on my laptop and without this little device, I had a heck of a time trying to figure out how to angle my laptop monitor. Now I know I am always at the correct working angle. It is well made and was easy to install. I suggest going to their website for installation instructions, just to be sure you get it exactly in the middle.

                                                There's not much to say -- it simply works! I feel better knowing that I am always viewing my screen at the correct angle. It is simple to install, easy to remove and you can close your laptop while it is attached.

                                                This gizmo does just what it's supposed to do: gives an easy visual cue that you're looking at your LCD at the right angle to get correct colors. Worth noting: It's designed for laptops, where it attaches to the flat back side of the screen (the laptop's top). I'm using it on an LCD connected to a desktop tower. The back of the screen is shaped more like a shallow bowl, so the right-angle gauge wouldn't fit. I e-mailed Acratech to ask if they had any suggestions other than bending the gauge to fit. They responded quickly, and said bending was the best approach. A few seconds with a vise grip and a pair of channel-lock pliers did the trick.

                                                      works!
                                                      Used with laptop and LCD screen for desktop.
                                                      It is only a bit of plastic - yes it is true - but if you are doing photoediting or video editing it is worth its weight in gold.
