I thought applying this screen protector was going to be easier than it was, particularly because I'm quite tech savvy. I read several product reviews before purchasing it and decided to follow the recommendations of those who had given several stars to the product: follow the instructions, and watch the video (which I did).
First of all, the package does not say where to find the instructional video. I first went to HHI's website, which told me the instructional video was on YouTube. I went to HHI's YouTube account, but I did not find a video about this item--only one about applying a screen protector to an iPad (which I guess would serve the same purpose). I wanted a more specific video, so I found one from "screenprotectortv" on YouTube, which was very useful. The instructor makes the application look much easier (and quicker) than it really is.
This screen protector is measured so perfectly to fit the Kindle Fire that you have to be very careful when applying it. I had to redo it several times. Getting the air bubbles out is easy, but removing the specks of dust from underneath the screen protector is not so simple. (There is another video from "screenprotectortv" about this problem.)
Application took me about 30+ minutes, when I expected it to take 5. You MUST be patient because applying this screen protector can easily cause you to become frustrated.
Does it help with glare? YES
Does it help with fingerprints? YES
I won't discourage anyone from buying this product. It is up to you if you want to spend that much time on the application. The good thing is: You can take the screen protector off as many times as you want, and it's still useable. Good luck! Keep the little cloth that comes in the package, as you can use it to clean the screen from time to time.
