Just picked this up after seeing it at walmart for like $6, but it doesn't say anywhere if it is safe to use on a computer monitor. I looked for reviews online but there weren't many to be found.

Would anyone here have any knowledge about that?

Since it seems they market it for PCs, I would imagine it works fine

I just called their help line, and the woman told me not to use it on a montior.

This company makes "gaming eye ware" called Gunnar glasses and this product is tailored for them. It says nowhere ON IT that its intended purpose is for glasses only. It was being sold in the electronics section of walmart, next to their headsets and keyboards.

This is terrible marketing and I am glad I didn't go and use it right away. It makes me sad that other people probably bought it thinking the same thing I did and possibly ruined their monitors.

It does say right in the link tho "Excellent for glossy electronic surfaces"

Distilled water and a clean microfiber cloth is all you need.

I bought the same product from Walmart and I have used it many times on several lcd monitors. I personally think it works great, I have seen no ill effects and I have been using it for months. Plus they advertise that it works on computer screens.
