Looking for an easy way to read the damn TV with the glass off and not breaking my neck while doing so. Anyone out there have any tips/tricks?

Take the backglass out and put it directly under the monitor .

Williams had an acrylic (plastic) mirror that would rest on the cabinet side rails below the monitor; I don't know if it was a limited production item, as I've only seen one for sale. It wouldn't be that hard to get something similar fabricated by a local plastics shop.

I believe this is how it's done in the demo video released by Williams. The rubber/plastic stoppers on the inside of the head hold the backglass in place for you. The design of those P2K's is very user friendly....always impresses me.

This is the correct method and crazy impressive on the design aspect

LOL just had to go try that out and I'll be damned if the backglass doesn't fit right in there.
They really thought of everything on this design!

Also FYI if you can't see the screen flip the translight it does work

Black acrylic or maybe even an old piece of mirror blade or simply a mirror.

Thanks guys, I'm going to try the black acrylic idea, seems like the best way to do the switch test and be able to read the screen.
