Red Plexiglass
« on: Nov 28, 2007, 13:41:25 »
I was thinking of buying some Red Plexiglass Sheets to put over my laptop screen

http://www.edirectory.co.uk/pf/880/mia/d/3mm+transparent+red+perspex+plexiglass+acrylic+sheet+500x1000mm/pid/5934896

They are £21 inc. postage for a 500mm x 1000mm x 3mm sheet, which I reckon will easily do 3 laptops. Does anyone else want some of this? If I get a sheet it will work out at £7 per laptop so if anyone else does want some I will order as many sheets as necessary.

With more and more laptops being used at DSC it is essential that we keep the screen glare down to a minimum. The flexible red acrylic stuff is easily damaged and a pain to use in the field whereas a hard sheet can be velcroed on and easily removed and stored away.

That's solid red, not transparent. Might make viewing the screen a bit difficult ;)
