    I own a business, so it was no problem for me. Just give them some detials and they sent my request. However, they did only send 2 different films and I requested 4 samples. So, like I said good luck getting the right films for a complete transflective upgrade.

    I'll buy that. I saw a giant box of (1000?) surplus vikuiti films on ebay last year, it was thousands of dollars from some factory in china IIRC.
    lol i think there's one on there now.. about 1240 bucks including shipping for 2000 sheets. what is that, around 60 cents a sheet. if someone bought that and sold each sheet for 30 bucks or so, they'd make quite a few pennies.

    Problem is, unless you have the ability to install the sheets correctly, there is no market for them.

    Now, a company with the tooling to cut them, and the facility to install them will reep huge profits off those sheets. There are several uses for sunlight readable LCD dispalys, and automotive use is gaining demand.
