    Acratech 6005R reviews

    Viewing Angle Gauge (Red) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple, but effective 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a gimmick 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes image processing a lot easier I switched from Jpeg to RAW several months ago, so I've been doing a lot more work in Photoshop recently. My first few images came out looking less than stellar, that's how I figured out how important screen angle is when color correcting and working with exposure. This thing is so simple I can't believe it works as well as it does. It attaches to any computer screen with Velcro, so it is easy to move between several monitors or desktop to laptop. The only thing that I can find to complain about would be the Velcro patch stuck on the back of my laptop, but I'm a form over function type of guy anyway, so that doesn't bother me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple idea, great product! While I prefer to work in the controlled environment of my office, sometimes that isn't possible and viewing images, let alone developing them in Lightroom or Photoshop, used to get quite frustrating since the slightest adjustment of the angle on my screen changed the appearance of my images. With this simple device, I can quickly see that my laptop screen is showing me the best view of my image and I can work from there. It is simple, but it works.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Little Gadget This is a handly little gadget to get the viewing angle on your laptop screen right. Simple, yet very effectiev. They should build these into laptops. This will delinitely improve your photo editing accuracy when combined with color calibration of your screen. This gauge helps with the physical problem of getting the screen right. Seems a little pricy, but it does the trick and should last forever.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little tool that is invaluable! 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a big difference in my editing What a difference using this makes on editing on a laptop. Keeping your viewing angle constant and at the proper angle allows you to really see what your photos will look like when printed. This is must have for anyone who travels and edits on a laptop. Now my printed photos match what I see on my laptop. Quality for the price I think is acceptable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works Always wondered if the screen was at the right angle when editing pictures. The angle gage takes away the guess work. The only down side is that you have to stick a piece of velcro on the outside of your computer if you want to leave it attached. I just hold it at the midpoint of my computer screen until the angle is right and work from there.
