Sometimes a product comes along that is so simple and effective you wonder why it hasn't been done before. The night vision red filter simply rests against your laptop screen to preserve your night vision as well as that of others around you. No more flimsy film or gel and no need for tape, Velcro or Blu-tack!
Made from 3mm high quality tinted perspex with smooth edges.
Please select your approx screen size above (diagonal measurement) then enter your laptop screen X & Y screen dimensions in millimeters when at the Checkout (after the address page).
If your laptop has a locking catch please measure from the base unit to just below the locking mechanism. If you are unsure of the correct size we recommend cutting a piece of card to check.
Supplied in a card-backed envelope for protection against scratches when not in use.
I just received my StarSharp red filter. First, and most important it looks like the filter will fulfill its primary function well. I must say I was very disappointed that the corners were not really rounded as I had expected. The product description states "Made from 3mm high quality laser-cut red tinted perspex with smooth edges and rounded corners." which is confirmed by looking at the review at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWtfRcRrVbo that also showed corners with what looks like a 12-18mm radius. My item contained hardly any rounding at all (perhaps 1-2mm) with each corner being slightly different and not fully rounded. It looks like it was just sanded/polished with fine grit sandpaper. Not the high quality that I expected. I know the product will function well in the field, which is all that really matters. I just wish the manufacturer wouldn't have "cut corners" in this way because I would have preferred a more professional fit and finish -- which is why I ordered this product instead of just building my own.
I bought this before the size/price options came into play so got quite a bargain on the large piece for my obsy monitor. However, even at the full price for a large screen, this is worthwhile. Many monitors do not allow much backlight reduction, so even when you select a red screen, it is bright (not dim) red and compromises night vision. Using the filter means you lose much less night vision. I added some velcro pads so it could be easily pulled off for normal computer use.
