Must Be Patient; Fantastic on my Archos 101, NO Fingerprints!!
on January 19, 2011
I will admit, like the other reviewers, I was disappointed. I read the instructions, cleaned the screen well (no lint), and applied the wet adhesive onto the skin, and then applied onto Archos. My first attempt was off-alignment, so I re-adjusted (very sticky) and then laid it down. The area where my 1st attempt did not look very good, and I was disappointed, plus there were some air bubbles. I waited 5 hours and the touchscreen was a bit erratic. I waited 24 hours and the touchscreen was much better. Then after 3 days the air bubbles were gone, and the touchscreen was like original.
Yes, the longest dimension is about 0.1" too short. The height dimension is perfect.
The best part of this skin is that it very resistant to fingerprints. I used the Archos 101 for 3 weeks without a skin, and it really attracts fingerprints. I would go on to say that this skin is oleo-phobic (resists greasy marks).
I will contact Skinomi, and see if they have fixed the dimension issue.
Update: I contacted Skinomi (yes, a REAL person answered!), and mentioned that the dimension was off about 2mm in the long dimension. She said she was not sure that if it was ever corrected, but was happy to send the latest version to me (free of charge). I received it two days later, and checked the dimension, and it was CORRECT! so I guess they realized their mistake. Will apply new skin today.
