    Dear Friends,
    I had recently bought anti-glare glass for my monitor, so that my eyes are not strained, i just wanted to know how effective it is??
    Attached to the glass is a small wire that sneeks out and i am supposed to ground it, what does that mean? how do i ground it?

    Yes it is effective , My eyes stoped burning after i used one.

    Yes you have to ground the wire, it is useful as it removes the static charge from the monitor.

    its quite effective. just keep the metallic Y-shaped free end of the wire touching the floor & u will have it grounded.

    Antiglare-Reduces glare and reflections from nearby light by up to 95%. Antiradiation-Conductive coatings and ground wire help to dissipate ELF/VLF E-Field([SIZE=-1]Electromagnetic radiation produced by computer monitors, measured as Extra Low and Very Low Frequency[/SIZE]) radiation by 99.9% when properly grounded. All this can do wonders to minimize straining of the eye.

    [FONT=arial,]Also, take care that using cleaners that contain an acid, alcohol, or alkaline detergent, thinner, benzene, abrasive powders, or antistatic agents can permanently damage your display. Monitors and LCDs should never be cleaned with products containing ammonia. General cleaning fluids are not safe for cleaning monitors.[/FONT]

    Is it fine to connect it to the furniture (with sun mica)?
    My Wire is not long enough to be able to touch the ground.

    3M is a very good brand and is quite effective too.

    BTW , what happens if you haven't grounded it ? Does it become useless ?

    Ya it does become useless, bcoz it wont work as AntiStatic and Anti- Radiator which are most imp.
    But still eyes are Protected well comparatively( without Glasses) even when its not grounded.

    Antiglare Glasses are meant for CRT monitors, lcd monitors dont need them.

    Just connect one end of the wire to the glasses, stick it properly and ground the other end

    Thanks for that. I am re-asking the question you had asked will it be fine if I touch the wire to a wooden table. ( I think it should do as wood is a bad conductor, just like the ground).

    I have too many wires and I dont want to have another one hanging around me desk :).

    Thanks

    Just don't wanna start a new thread, SO
    Three Questions:
    1. I have my monitor with a anti-glare screen fitted inside.
    I can continue working for several hrs (approx6-8) without strain on my eyes.
    But i have anti-glare glasses also & when i wear them while using my PC, it just strains my eyes within a few minutes.
    What is the problem?
    2. I have nothing coming out of my monitor, then how it is grounded?
    3. What cleaner can i used to clean my screen.

    3M is expensive. I enquired the prices around 2 yrs ago and one dealer says it costs 900 Rs. so i bought the an antiglare screen called florida. it looks cheap and it is when compared to 3M. geez, i threw the wire off it too! i mean, i removed the wire from the frame itself. do i need to buy a new one.
