REVIEW: Rogge Screen-Clean
Many LCD monitor owners can probably remember how hard it actually was to find the right LCD to fit one‘s own needs. And these new display technologies and their accompanying terminology like DVI, response time, TN, PVA or S-IPS haven‘t exactly made things easier for that matter.
But, now that one finally has the display standing on the desk, a new question pops up: How do I clean the sensitive panel surface? Unfortunately, consulting the manual mostly doesn‘t yield any worthy advice in this regard, too. At many times it merely says that accumulated dust is best to be removed using a soft cloth. But what should one do if the panel already shows grease spots from to many times of pointing at something on the screen or if some of the remains of one‘s last cold can still be seen on the surface?
As a rule, you should refrain from applying regular cleaning agents used for glass and the like. These can permanently damage the sensitive surface of the monitor screen.
PRAD‘s recommendation has always been to moisten a soft microfiber cloth, wring it out firmly and wipe the display surface carefully with it afterwards. The visible result is flawless, there are no stripes left whatsoever, and apart from the microfiber cloth, it creates no costs.
However, some manufacturers strictly warn of the dangers of using waters and they also explicitly declare this in the manual sometimes. For this reason, PRAD has never assumed liability for the cleaning with water and always referred users to the manual of the respective manufacturer.
Water is regarded as critical since it, firstly, can cause blind spots for one thing, and secondly, the impact that the respective water hardness can make in the long run of cleaning maintenance should not be underestimated.
Blind spots means the drying of water drops on the panel surface. The spots formed can remain permanently and impair the viewing clarity. The water hardness becomes a critical aspect if the water that is being used is very calcareous. When applied frequently and on a regular basis, tiny deposits of lime can lead to scratches. Of course, this in not going to happen if one cleans the display only a few times a year, but users who regularly clean their monitor, i.e. on a weekly or even daily basis, will certainly have to pay mind to this aspect.
Review Rogge Screen-Clean
Applying it is just as easy as you might think. You spray the cleaning agent onto the display‘s surface and wipe it with a dry non-fuzzing tissue until it is dry. The 125 ml bottle comes with three tissues. But you can also use a soft microfiber tissue for the finishing withoutanyproblems, of course. Rogge also plans to include an adequate microfiber tissue with this product in the future. But this is yet to come.
