I was looking m 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. Dust and other stuff does get between the screen and the guard, which I don't like. I cant give this less than 3 stars, because it performs as advertised, but I can't give it 5, because I don't like it. If I was looking for a privacy filter, I'd have given it 4 stars because it darkens the screen a lot, and I do a lot of photo/video stuff and have to get super close to the screen to see well. For the price, I wouldn't recommend for a screen protector.

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.

      Good product, BUT

      Works well on my Macbook Peo 2013 as people sat next to me on the train cannot see a single thing on my screen (I've got friends to sit next to me and test). Works well on my Macbook Peo 2013 as people sat next to me on the train cannot see a single thing on my screen (I've got friends to sit next to me and test). HOWEVER it comes with sticky strips which you have to apply to the sides. If you frequently take the privacy screen off as I do (why have a Retina HD screen and not get the full benefit when you don't need the privacy??!!) these sticky strips at the side VERY QUICKLY become 'un-sticky'. Do you think that you can buy replacement sticky strips......? Of course not - it's another £44 for a whole new screen!!!! And correct me if I am wrong, but isn't it the case that 3M are well-known for, amongst other things, adhesives? Do NOT buy this product unless you are going to stick it on, and never take it off.

      Doesn't fit

So while that is all good, it is not usable as is. It does not fit the screen and I did verify that I purchased the correct filter for my size MacBook. I have the 15" MacBook Pro with Retina Display. The filter hangs over the edges and top a bit and the little hole for the camera doesn't actually line up with where the camera is. I tried several ways of positioning it to get it to line up with the camera and not hang over the edges, but then you cannot close the computer completely. I suppose you could trim the edges to fix these issues, but I don't think this should be necessary to do considering the price of the thing. Also felt this would result in rough (and knowing me probably also crooked) edges. It does not mention anything in the instructions about maybe needing to trim it to make it fit. It does say to use 5 adhesive strips versus 2 for larger screens, but only 3 are included and it doesn't specify what is considered a larger screen. I used all three and decided to just let it hang over the edges and not line up with the camera, but it didn't really matter because it didn't stick....at all....because it doesn't fit. Since the screen is recessed a bit from the edge of the computer, if you don't trim the edges it won't actually touch the screen and so won't stick. I guess the other option is to just set it in front of the screen when I need to and not use the adhesive part, but then it really, really isn't worth the price. I wish I knew why it worked so well for others, but it certainly doesn't for me. Since I have to have a privacy filter to use the computer for work (which is the main reason I bought the computer), I hope there is another product somewhere that will provide the privacy and actually be usable.

      Excellent product

      Have used these on a few machines now with no problems at all. And when the adhesive gives up 3M will supply replacements free of charge!
