We didn't expect it, but TV Snob put the TV Armor
screen protector to the test. We chortled a bit when we first saw the product, but the good folks at TV Snob gave it a thumbs up, so a mea culpa is in order. The matte finish on the acrylic shield effectively cut down the light output of the LCD by about 5-percent, but also minimized glare effects, so the overall effect on picture quality was negligible. That pretty much stifles our concerns, so we'll let you hit that link if you're interested to know how TV Armor fared on the aesthetic and protective fronts; well worth the read if your display is subject to things that go "bump."
