    3M DBEF & BEF Enhancement Film installed into Xenarc Screen

    Well, i have finally finished my 3M DBEF and BEF enhancement.

    If your not familiar with what i have done previously here's the thread
    Took the plunge

    Initial thoughts:

    Was well worth it, as the display seems alot brighter then before and colours also look a lot more vivid. Daytime visibility has also increased, to which i am very happy with the time spent cutting up the sheets etc.

    Cost:

    FREE! (As i requested samples from a 3M supplier.)


    Here's some pictures from the disassembly, hope this is helpful to someone.

    Are those films about the same as these: http://cms.3m.com/cms/US/en/2-136/FFicRFL/view.jhtml?
    Or are they something entirely different?

    Removed all the filters and replaced it with just the BEF and DBEF.

    Was it easy to determine the correct orientation of the films?

    I have some sample films coming. Don't want to cut the film and then find out I have the wrong orientation...

    Being samples, they probably don't have the notch indicator.

    What are DBEF and BEF? And do you just bung em in or do they have to be oriented specifically or what?

    I remember I saw the result before.

    I send a quota to 3M and it is bloody expensive. Better of going with transflective upgrade instead.
