FYI: I found a great place to purchase custom-cut Lexan monitor screen protectors.

 

1/8 inch thickness seems to be perfect....

What I find works really well is to go to a custom framing store, and have them cut to size a piece of optically-coated anti-reflective acrylic, the same conservation-grade stuff they use for high end artwork that, because of the optical coating, almost disappears in the frame. The stuff I got was "Optium Acrylite AR Museum." This is not frosted or pebbled; it's absolutely crystal clear and the optical coating is what makes it anti reflective. Less than 2% of the light is reflected; regular acrylic in comparison is like a mirror. This stuff is not cheap: about $45 for a little piece for a 5.6" monitor, about $250 for a 17" monitor, but it's the only stuff worth using.

I'm using it only when the rig is docked. No point in putting something over the screen that impairs while operating...:-)

I've gotten all my Lexan screen protectors at Lowes and they cut it to size for me.

But I'll try Jens's place next week when I get my Transvideo.
