    Big booooooooooo!!!

    #703 52 days ago

    today was hoping someone would take an after shot with the glass actually off and claim it was with stern's glass.

    What is the consensus on the proper/safest way to clean this glass?

    See the first page for the liquid. Also, Use a clean microfiber cloth.

    Anyone with invisiglass or PDI also get the new Stern glass? I'm in a waiting pattern and hoping to see comparisons on the same game capturing the same angle.

    #707 29 days ago

    Over the weekend I was doing some work in the backbox of my TSPP, which has Sterns HD glass. I thought I had the playfield glass out. I tried to set my fluke meter on the playfield twice and it kept hitting something. It was the glass which I hadn't removed. The glass doesn't elimate the backbox/dmd glare. It does reduce it. The glass does however look almost completely invisible otherwise. I've now had numerous people over and they all think there isn't glass. Even my wife who thought it was stupid to spend that much on glass now admits it's looks a lot better than normal glass.

    #708 29 days ago

    I've seen the glass in person a couple of times, and it made minimal difference under those circumstances. I really don't see the reason for picking it up unless you have a very specific lighting issue to overcome. You still get DMD and translite glare, and it barely feels diminished.

    If anybody played the Ghostbusters Premium at TPF, that had the HD glass in it. It was hard to even notice a difference.

    Anyway, for general use, it's probably a bust. If you have a bad lighting situation, it might help.

    Is this shipping? And if so, how long did it take?

    I think I ordered almost 4 weeks ago.

    I think I ordered almost 4 weeks ago.

    They were out of stock until the 15th. Glass is now shipping and I received mine on Wednesday but it is 1 day shipping to here.
    BTW, As a nay sayer old school guy who believed glass is glass I'm pleasantly surprised. I don't have any Invisiglass or PDI to compare it too, but I put it on my CCC and in my lighting situation it's awesome. Machines with regular tempered on each side, I can't believe the difference. To me, it was so... good it's bad, really bad.
    This is my 1st piece, 25 machines set up and I want more....
    Has anyone compared it to PDI yet?

    #711 4 days ago

    Yes, thanks. Got tracking and mine is coming today. If it's like PDI or Invisiglass, I'll be stoked. I have both types and can't have a machine without it now. A must have mod IMO anyway.

    Oh man, you have a huge collection. This could get expensive, lol.

    #712 4 days ago

    Great!
    I can't wait for your comparison to PDI and Invisiglass. From all I've read, PDI seems to be superior so far.
    Only 4 more color displays to get and the glass has to be next.
    It will get expensive... Oh well still way cheaper then racing.

    Watching this thread closely. Stern HD glass is $100 less than others after tax and shipping for me. It'd be a game-changer.

    i got a sheet of Stern HD glass at Pinfest. I cant tell a difference between the HD glass and Invisiglass. Both look like theres no glass looking directly down on playfield and both have some glare from overhead lights and backglasses.

    Just got my Stern HD glass installed. Super happy - Looks indistinguishable from PDI or Invisiglass IMO.

    Pictures were tough. I just shot a quick video showing from the top all three vendors side by side.

    I need to add text to video, but TSPP is Stern HD, SMVE and AS are PDI, GB is Invisiglass

    Thanks for the comparison and the good news.
    And $20 shipping to Mi. is pretty awesome too.
    But... this is now going to get expansive, time to order more.
    I hope they would do wide bodies next.

    Where does one buy this glass? I don't see it on Stern's website. Can I pick it up from the factory to save on shipping?

    I read that a few did pick up at Stern and save shipping... assuming you'd have to call them to arrange this. That would be a good option for you probably. But I also found a link on their website.

    How is the packaging? Safe to ship ground? Thanks!

    The guys over at PBL are packaging experts. No doubt in my mind that it would ship flawlessly.

    I got mine directly from Stern. $21.21 shipping to Mi. 3 1/4" X 25 1/2" X 48" Heavy cardboard box. Expanding foam in all 4 corners and a little protection in the middle. Got here just fine even after what looks like they dropped it on a corner, but not really that hard. Nice glass.

    Hi Toasterdog,

    as you have 3 different sheets of anti reflective glass would you mind to make another video
    with only the glass sitting side by side like I`ve asked Pinsiders two months ago please ?
