    Tethered Surface Pro Screen Glare - any remedy

    Hi - anyone found an answer for using in bright sunlight?
    Do the anti glare sticky covers work?
    I hear some people complain it fixes glare, but cuts down the brightness, which is the last thing I want!

    I'm on SP4 now - have been on SP3 and SP1, before. Supposedly the SP4 is the brightest of them all, but it's still a problem, even at 100% screen brightness.

    Yes they do work and yes they will make the screen slightly darker. It is basicly a matte finish that diffuses direct light.

    Even though it may be brighter it will still be view able vs not.

    If you need better glare protection I'd look at the Think Tank Pixel Sunshade 2.0

    ive found that anti glare covers help but don't give me the contrast that I want for accurate tethered viewing in bright sunshine. Better than looking at my reflection for sure but no panacea yet ...
