After reading some of the gripes and suggestions on here I was a little apprehensive at purchasing this item. However, it seems that most of the complaints are exaggerated or written by those that are "all or nothing" perfectionists.

Best recommendations:

Install both screen protectors in the bathroom. It may seem a bit weird, but considering that there is usually no carpet in a bathroom, and that the steam "grabs" the particles out of the air it is very effective. I didn't install it right after a shower, however I have 0 dust particles underneath either screen and no bubbles. Another good suggestion is to squeegee(sp?) most of the air out from under the screens before you apply it 100%. I tend to hold onto the last 10% or so of the screen and push the bubbles in that direction. This way it is easier to peel back the protector if you happen to miss some bubbles or dust. Also leave the last piece of plastic over the screen protectors until you are done getting rid of the bubbles. Use your own microfiber cleaning cloth!

Exaggerated concerns:

"My screen is purple!!!" This is absolutely not true. When viewing either screen I can not even notice there are screen protectors on them unless I am looking for it. However, there is a purple tint on the upper section of the 3DS on the black section AROUND the screen. You will not notice it though unless the 3DS is in direct light or there is glare. Honestly, I could not care less about a slight purple tint AROUND the screen.

"My touch screen has lost sensitivity!!!" There is slight truth to this complaint, however it is minimal. You won't even notice unless you use the stylus like you are writing a love letter on tissue paper.

Overall this is a good quality screen protector that has all of the minimal flaws that any screen protectors have. Buy it, be patient applying it, and you won't have any problems.

I went through 3 Hori screen protectors on my DS Lite, because I loved the quality that Hori puts out. The protectors always went on nicely, they were clear, and the touch screen portion had good feedback.

Before receiving my 3DS, I immediately bought a Hori screen protector for it. As many people have probably realized, the touch screen can get scratches over time (which is also the reason why I went through a few on my DS Lite). Yes, I have seen little kids who don't use a screen protector and their screens are all scratched up. With a screen protector, you can just get a new one and the screen underneath is well protected.

Anyways, I was a little dumbfounded when I opened the Hori 3DS protector. There's this new "3-step process" that's supposed to help you put them on. Personally, it caused more problems than anything. I never had any problems putting on screen protectors the "old way". With the 3-step process, I had problems aligning the protector properly, because it would slide around as you slide out the bottom layer. You'll know what I'm talking about if you actually tried it. Traditionally, you would just peel off the bottom layer then try to align it as you stick it on, but with the new process, they want you to align from the getgo and slide out the bottom layer. I guess you can just do it the old way and just peel it off first, but I wanted to try it using their instructions. I ended up having to peel off the protector anyways because it came out crooked, and I redid it for both the bottom and top. In short, the 3-step process didn't help (at least for me). I should probably mention that I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so the 3-step process might work if you don't mind applying it slightly crooked or off-center.

This screen protector is the easiest to apply. I only have 2 things to make aware of, but not enough to drop a star in the rating. Just an FYI.

First.. The cleaning cloth that comes with it. DO NOT USE. It says to wipe down the system with the cloth before applying the protectors. I did this.. looked clean to me. But in actuality the cloth leaves behind very tiny pices of lint (look at the cloth and you can figure out why). You dont see the lint until the screen protector is put on. I will have to buy another protector since when I play a game I can see all the lint. I told my friend who also got it not to use the cloth and use an eyeglass cloth to clean it and it was lint free.

Secondly.. it says in the instructions to pull off the yellow strips off the tabs before you line up the protector and then affix those tabs. Do yourself a favor and aline the protector BEFORE you remove the yellow strips or the tabs will stick to the system a little bit making it harder to align. They should had made it clear in the instructions to do this and not tell you to remove the yellow strips first.

Besides those two things.. it is very easy to apply and ive had no issues with it yet.

I am a big supporter of Hori, but this product wasn't all I was hoping for. I used the 3DS for almost a week before these protectors arrived so I can comment on the differences with and without it.

This is the big problem area. The touchscreen became noticeably less responsive. This effect was immediate and prevalent. It wasn't reduced enough that I was ready to give up on it though until today when the touchscreen failed to work at all. I tried powering down and resetting the system with no results. Finally, I removed the protector and it was instantly better. And, having the protector off again, I realized again how much more responsive the screen is without the protector installed.

3D Screen
I won't belabor a point that has been made in these reviews numerous times, but the 3D screen does indeed gain a purple hue after installation of the Hori protector. Installation was a breeze, however, one little piece of lint was on the screen and once you know it is there it can tend to draw your attention. I don't believe that it would be possible to reinstall it without making it worse, though. The first time is your best shot. After taking the bottom protector off today, I decided to remove the top one as well. The bottom screen is the one I was more worried about, as it is the one that is being touched. Since I had it off, I put the protector over half of the screen and played with it a while to see if I could notice any adverse effects but I didn't notice any pronounced enough to say they aren't just in my head. Regardless, I am happy with the protectors off now. Although, I would be a bit happier with the $9 back.

As the most expensive screen protector available, it still is not a great option in my opinion, especially the touchscreen portion.
