My 13.3" Laptop has terrible reflection & my table placement is such that light is just behind me thus magnifying the effects. Unfortunately I cant displace table as its huge in size and there’s no room left.

I also tried using white color mode everwhere instead of Dark mode as it causes less reflection but found it uncomofortable.

Any possible remedies ?

There’s no reason to use screen guard for laptops but if you’re laptop does not have matte textured screen in many cases(mainly outdoors) may give glares, and thats irritating. In that case you can use matte screen guards.

When I was using my old laptop which whose display was a glare magnet worsened by the sub-par max. brightness I had also considered matte screen protectors. Ibhejo was running a good deal back then but still decent ones from the likes of 3M were pretty expensive Rs 3-4k and they only helped to a certain extent. So I dropped the idea of getting one. Heck maybe spending a few thousand extra on an external monitor is a better spend as it would greatly boost multitasking as well. IPS ones from LG/HP occasionally come on sale for ~7k and they sport matte finish IIRC.For my next laptop a matte display was the top priority although that didn’t leave many choices.
Check recent reviews to see what folks have to say about the efficacy of current screen protectors.

Are those 3-4k screen guards different from the 300-400 one which we get in Nehru Place (Delhi)?

my friedn bought one at 2500 from amazon India. it was a thick one and reduced screen brightness too along with glare,but only after few days he just peeled it off and threw. He said its quite uncomofrtable as it hinders with natural closing and opening and thus protection to some extent. Moreover IPS screen seemed no longer IPS as viewing angles too reduced significantly

For watching movies in the dark and while browsing the web I have placed a USB LED light towards the back of the laptop. For front illumination I have a CFL table lamp. I don’t usually need to switch on the tubelight/LED bulb to cancel out the LCD backlight and so far haven’t encountered any additional eye strain. Maybe not having a strong light source on the back could help.

good idea will try but a decent study lamp occupies ample space. i should try out with mobile flash initially I guess stuck_out_tongue

I am using Mi LED and a 9W CFL lamp. Background illumination for viewing in the dark is a solid improvement.
Matte displays are great. I have the display brightness set to no more than 15-20% usually and it remains legible with a sun-facing window directly behind. And this is with a Dark theme enabled everywhere all the time.

Get blue-cut lens eye glasses from lenskart and use LED soft lights. You can also use a table lamp. If there is a window in the back, use curtains.

I got an idea. I have a 5w LED tube fitted just above my laptop but thats too bright. will add some sort of cardboard or similar setup and push light just behind my laptop.
