Respond here if you want glare/brightness solution
I live in Minnesota where 3M is located. I've been talking with engineers in their optical department about their Vikuity products -- which are a series of different films for LCD displays.
They have one film which you install behind the CCFLs in your monitor and it reflects light back out the front of the display. It may increase the brightness of the display as much as %60.
They have other films that deal with glare and reflection problems.
If I buy a Lilli and leave it at their lab with them, they will disassemble it and figure out what film is used in the Lilli. They will then figure out what films they offer which will improve the performance of the monitor. The long-term goal is that we are able to come up with a kit of say, 3 films, which you could buy and install yourself. Perhaps one film behind the CCFL to increase brightness and two films for the TS and display to help with the glare problems.
That means I have to buy a Lilli TS monitor, which I don't have a use for, and take it to their labs and work with these guys to find a solution for everyone. I'm willing to do that, but first I'd like to find out how many people would be interested in a solution.
Just for the sake of discussion, let's say your cost for the kit would end up being, say, $100.00 for a package of 3 films. Would you be interested in something like that? How about if it was $150.00? I really have no idea what it might cost, but if there isn't a lot of interest then I don't see any point in moving forward.
Personally, if you guys could order a kit like this from the MP3car store and install it youself, I think that would be awesome.
