    This is prompted by the recent discussion of Spyders and EyeOnes:

    I have a pair of CTX monitors, with flat Trinitron tubes. They have a
    very effective anti-reflection coating which seems to be very delicate.
    The soft rubber blackout skirt of my Spyder has left a mark, apparently
    by rubbing off the coating. The mark is only visible when it reflects
    objects in front of the screen. Perhaps if I wore black clothes all the

    Does anyone here have any suggestions (based on practical knowledge if
    possible) on either avoiding or treating this problem?

    Cameron: is your Sony G520 subject to this problem? How do you clean

    Yes, it has the same coating but a Sony rep told me not to worry too much
    about it. I use a 3M brand glass cleaner on it and it is as good as the day
    I bought it.

    I rubbed a section of the coating off my Trinitron monitor by accident using
    camera lens fluid and a microfibre cloth (removing grubby finger makrs) -
    this mistake left a great big "splodge" on the screen noticeable when the
    screen is white of dark. I would reccomend that people be very very careful
    what cleaning fluids they use on their high definition monitors. When I can
    afford it I'll buy a new monitor.

    Call WES and get a can of their VDU spray cleaner.
