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'm the typical person that will take the longest time to put on screen protectors, because I absolutely DESPISE bubbles on my screen. It irritates me to no other. In fact, earlier I applied screen protectors on my PSP 3000 and absolutely dreaded the whole process.

This was not the case for my 3DS. You see, I was pretty worried since these screen protectors came in after I had used my 3DS for about a week, worrying that it will be a pain to put these on flawlessly. That was not so, with the new 3 step program, putting these screen protectors on is so idiot proof, I did not have any bubbles! No removing the screen protectors to clean it off, re-applying them. First time applied and they were FLAWLESS.

The HORI brand is a brand I have always trusted with my Nintendo Handhelds, and this just shows the amount of ingenuity the company has always offered. Fantastic product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do buy. April 1, 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I always buy Hori protectors for all my portable gaming systems. The new application method proves to be a bit easier than the usual way of installing screen filters. The top filter comes with two pieces of adhesive to align the filter during application. You still need to look to align it, as the adhesive tabs are primarily there to keep the filter stationary while removing the film and to prevent excessive dust from collecting to the filter by eliminating the time the underside is exposed during application. The bottom filter functions the same as the other Hori filters I have on my DS lite, DSi and DSi XL systems. I do not know what the other reviewers are referring to as functionality is not hindered in any manner. The top filter does leave a slight tint on the black border surrounding the screen when viewed in direct light, but I find it to be a small tradeoff in making sure the entire top screen is also protected. I do recommend cleaning the screens with the applied cloth and removing any trace of dust with canned air. Keeping a piece of scotch tape handy to remove any stray dust that makes its way under the screen during application is also recommended. Happy gaming!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad. February 2, 2012

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Easy install but negative effect April 7, 2011

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

Screen has yet to have a scratch from this protector. I prefer it over Skinomi screen protector but the Hori Screen Protectors + Skinomi Body Protector = can't be beat.
