Comments about Privacy Filter for Sony VAIO 15.5" SE Series:
Since the filter is custom made for the Sony Vaio 15.5", it is a perfect fit. It is a attached between the screen and chassis, which makes the filter look like it's part of the screen. No glue / tape is involved, so it can be removed and re-attached at will (though you'll need some fingernails to get a hold of it once it is in place).The screen size of the Vaio 15.5" seems to be quite unusual. I've not been able to find other filters that would fit perfectly. I.e. you would need to cut it and probably glue it or tape it in place. Not something I would like to do to my brand new computer.It works quite well, hiding the screen when you see it from a bit of an angle. People sitting next to you (on the train / airplane / ect) will literally be in the dark... But if you're really concerned about your privacy, you should make sure no-one is right behind you, which is naturally true for any privacy filter.It does make the screen a bit darker, even for the person sitting right in front of it, which in turn might have a negative impact on battery time (if you choose to increase brightness). I also find that the screen is not as sharp and crisp as it used to be. It is a little harder on the eyes.I have never used another privacy filter, though. So I really don't have anything to compare it with.
