Perfectionists need not attempt!
on March 3, 2013
OK. First thing, accept that this WON'T go on perfectly! I've never been able to get even a smartphone protector on perfectly. I am a perfectionist so it does bug me, but I just have to remind myself that a few bubbles or specks of dust are better than a scratched screen. Having said that, I will voice my one real frustration with this - after all the time I spent smoothing it out, as soon as I started to pull the 2nd protective layer off the protector lifted away from the screen! However, this is par for the course. Sigh.
I do have some tips:
1 - take your time cleaning! The longer you spend at that the better it'll be in the end.
2 - wear latex or similar gloves! This is the 1st time I thought to do that and I'm very pleased with the result. Every time before I'd end up touching the sticky side, just a bit, and end up with oil from my finger on it. It's a little harder to manipulate the screen wearing the gloves but it's well worth it; no smudges.
3 - Set your Yoga up so the screen is almost vertical to get the screen on initially, then lay it flat so you can use a little more force as you scrape the bubbles out.
4 - Take your time again scraping the bubbles out. Remember that you'll have to do some more of that after peeling the 2nd protective layer off. Grrrrr!
5 - Accept the few remaining bubbles. I've got about 3 1/8" bubbles and 8-10 that I can barely see. That however is with the computer off. Once it's on the only ones I can see are the few on the bezel. The rest are hidden by the screen's brightness.
In the end, this is as good a protector as any. I don't notice any degradation of the screen's sensitivity, and the protector is as easy to clean as the screen itself was. Actually, it's a little easier since I can use a little bit of a cleaning liquid with worrying about damaging the screen.
I highly recommend this screen - these Yogas are expensive and I want it to last. Remember, bubbles are better than scratches!
