    I got a Hitachi 43" HDTVready for my b-day and paid the high cost of having a "good" screen protector added to my investment. The mightyshield is what CC sell's now.They are coming out this Saturday to put it on. Just woundering If any one else has had there service? I think Im going with the non-glare so I dont get the reflection of everything in my room on the TV.

    I have a Tosh 65HX81 with the "anti-glare" screen. It is better than previous models but most would rather not have it on. Some even pay calibrators to get it off or restack it to the back.
    If I didn't have a kid with some of his friends coming over I would have removed it long ago. It is supposed to generate a better PQ without it.

    if you don't have kids, then don't kid one, this will actually produce more glare on the set

    Well....the benefits now outweigh the risks. Kids will have "close contact" with the set no mater what. Just get the non-glare and maybe move ur lamp to the sides of the set to eliminate ur seeing urself when watching.

    What others are referring to is different than what I think you're talking about. Right now, you have a clear protective screen on the set. You're getting an anti-glare screen put on.

    What others are talking about is actually removing the clear screen all together to expose the lenticular screen. This will produce the least amount of glare, but expose the actual screen to potential damage.

    In your case, I'd use the anti-glare shield. It will be better than the normal protective screen.

    So right now you have a screen that has grooves in it? There's not a smooth plexiglass-like screen?

    Wierd.. I don't know of any new hitachi's that don't come with the high contrast screen protector. The only new model that I've seen that doesn't come with one is the panasonics.. What's the model?

    OK.. my mistake. I haven't payed much attention to the 4:3 sets. Sorry for adding to the confusion.

    Your best bet if you want a screen protector is going to be the anti-glare screen that you've ordered. The clear one will have more glare, and going without might be too risky with kids.

    Again, sorry for the confusion..
