Looks great, but feels odd - also has too much shimmer
on June 10, 2012
Easy to put on and no bubbles - however your finger often snags on the surface of the protector! I'm not sure if it's because of the material or the fact that the protector is hovering above the surface, but it's rather distracting when trying to do anything. Also, a rainbow-like sheen tends to occur - sometimes when facing you head on, but mostly when it's on any sort of an angle.
While it's "magical" that there are no bubbles, the downsides make this a pain to use.
Addendum: Been using it for a month so far, finger snagging issue seems to have disappeared. Found another downside: it can build up an extremely high static charge, attracting anything and everything to it. Very hard to get the charge to go away, and also has the problem of attracting 75% of the film to the actual screen surface. This attraction effect increases the rainbow shimmer noticeably as the film warps inwards. It's the middle of a hot and humid Michigan summer, yet this thing is attracting hair and dust like a balloon in the middle of a dry winter! The only remedy is to pull the film away from the screen - luckily it was made for multiple reapplications!
Someone else mentioned the rainbow effect is from fingerprints - it is not; while fingerprints are noticeable, they do not make any rainbow effect, only look like fingerprints on glass and can easily be wiped off.
I don't think I'd buy another one of these, as the static buildup and the rainbow shimmer make it distracting to use.
