How should I choose a screen cleaning solution?

I saw the thread about cleaning screens with distilled water and a microfiber cloth, but if I want to get a specialized screen cleaning solution, what factors/properties should I look for?

Don't waste money on solution, diluting vinegar with water works great.

"As you wanted a vendor recommendation, a few years ago I collected 20 something odd cleaning solutions for TFT screens and personally tested them all for a few weeks at the office. In the end, Disko one-time use set was the clear winner by far (though also one of the more expensive). Their ""wet"" cloth was simply amazing, extremely thick and soaked like a sponge compared to other wet cloths that were usually just a damp and thin piece of paper-like material.

These days I'd go for just any microfibre cloth though and some water or if really deluxe, some vendors own cleaning solution which by experience perhaps'd be Disko as well, just for kicks or nostalgia ;)"

"Some window cleaning ""spray thing"" that I get in the supermarket.

They have different names depending what country you live in, but its all the same stuff.

However since lcd monitors have a ""plastic"" feeling I'm a little bit cautious my self,
since I got the feeling that they scratch easy... So I think the cloth is more important than the liquid."

I bought the Philips LCD/Plasma Screen Cleaner Kit (SVC2543W/10), cloth included and it seems to do the job nicely.
