Our new office has so much fluorescent everywhere that only those people who are lucky
enough to sit with their backs facing very near the wall will not get glare or those fluores
reflections ... very glaring.

There's also a couple of ppl in the office who tends to pry into my screen.

is there any anti-glare & privacy screen guards out there?  Pls provide amazon
& eBay links of the items so that I can purchase for both X61 & X220

Unless I turn my screens to less than 90 degree (towards me), I'll still get the glares/reflections
but at that angle, the screen's viewing is very out/non-optimal

Are those screen filter anti-glare as well?

Or all privacy filters are anti-glare ?

Gee, thanks.

I think the one for X61 is smaller than my Thinkpad's X61 screen size which is
9.75 inches wide & 7.25 inches high

The above measuresments I gave is for the display area of the LCD screen of X61;
diagonally across the display area, it's 12.1 inches;  all measures excludes the 'dark
non-viewable'  edges, ie measurements are based on the viewable display area

I own a Lenovo X61 and use this screen protector. Both sizes should be adequate.
