Re: [NTLK] WriteRight replacements from Strong Engineering?!

Well, the visibility is very good, better than the WriteRights. There is a
bit of tradeoff...The 2nd generation of WriteRights had a non-glare coating,
which somewhat hindered visibility and clarity. The Strong Engineering
replacements have no more non-glare than the unprotected screen, so the
clarity and visibility is excellent. But, although little empirical
evidence has been collected thus far, the glare may be somewhat of an issue
in brightly lighted areas. More as testing continues...

Do the replacements from Strong Engineering cut down on the visibility
of the Newton? There was an earlier thread where folks said the NuShield
makes the Newton screen a little bit dark, hampering visibility and
making users turn on backlighting more frequently. I admit that it
happens to me. So I am curious about how these make the Newton "look"....
