2.0 out of 5 stars Kills the look of your 1520 screen !!!, December 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros: inexpensive, easy to install, perfect fit, pack of 5

Big cons: purple blotchy patterns/reflections all over the screen when viewed under any artificial lighting, especially at night
the left and right sides of the screen has a thin opaque line along the edge making the screen appear to be peeling off on the sides, even though it is well adhered to the surface

A clear screen protector must appear invisible (or at least almost invisible). Though this product has more pros than cons, the cons are just too big to overcome the pros. Even though I was able to install it perfectly (centered and no bubbles), the screen still looks ugly because of the 2 cons mentioned above. This protector just kills the beautiful look of the Lumia 1520 screen. I will have to buy another brand now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great screen, December 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Looks beautiful. Fits perfectly. Inexpensive. Appears well made and of good quality. I've had this only for a little over a month, so I can't attest to its durability. Will update review accordingly if durability becomes an issue. For now, highly recommend.
If bubbles appear during installation, it is most likely due to the installer's fault, not the screen. There are numerous YouTube videos showing you how to install a screen protector. Highly recommend that you watch them first before installing (if you are new to this type of activity).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case, December 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Looks beautiful. Fits perfectly. Appears to be very well made and of good quality, so most likely very durable too. Sleep/wake feature fully functional. Priced a lot less than original Apple cover. Wish the magnet was a little stronger. Still highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, April 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Beautiful. Fits like a glove. Easy to install and remove. Seems very well made, so will probably last a long time with normal use (can't really attest to this yet since I just recently purchased this item, but will update review if product falls apart prematurely).

Not a smart case. Magnets don't wake or put tablet to sleep.

Very prompt delivery from Fintie directly. Well packaged too.

I took 1 star off because I think it's baloney they charge extra for anything but black. Still would definitely recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to install, April 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've installed many screen protectors on various devices over the years and consider myself pretty experienced. This shield is fairly difficult to install in that it tends to cause bubbles during the installation process. It took me a very long time to get rid of all the bubbles (using a piece of tape to lift up different areas of the shield to remove the bubbles). A very tedious process.

Pros: looks beautiful (if installation done right)
feels very smooth to swipe fingers across
easy to clean
low prices (you get 3 in the pack)

Cons: difficult to install (not designed for inexperienced installers)
feels thinner than other shields (may scratch with use of stylus)
fingerprints prone (but at least easy to clean)

I will update this review once I receive my stylus and have a chance to check out the shield's scratch resistant ability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product!!!, April 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this and took it to Australia. It worked like a charm there. Seems to be well made too and so will probably last a long time, provided you don't abuse it too much. Very versatile device too. You don't need to carry several adapters when you travel around the world. This one should work pretty much everywhere. Very good low price too. Highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, January 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Easy to install. Offer decent protection. Slim and beautiful. Smart cover has magnets to wake up your device. The origami style makes this case much more versatile because you can prop the iPad up in both landscape and portrait mode. At $15 it's much cheaper than the $40 smart case offered at the Apple store (and the Apple case can only be used in landscape mode). The only thing it doesn't have is an Apple logo on the back.

This rooCase has more features and is a better product/value than the Apple smart case. I took 1 star off because I think it's baloney that they charge $5 extra if you want any other color but black.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bang for the buck!!!, January 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Product came in a pretty decent package offering fair protection. Very easy to install and looks beautiful after installation. Since I only got this a few weeks ago, I can't really attest to its durability. From the look and feel of the product, I think this screen protector will last a long time under normal use. Has a very high quality feel to it. Came in 3, so with shipping it costs a little over $2 each. That's a great value. I didn't need the other 2 since I was able to install the first one perfectly. I own several tablets and phones and have installed quite a lot of screen protectors, so this one was not challenging at all. Took me no more than 5 minutes. I think the people who complain about bubbles probably didn't have a whole lot of experience installing screen protectors. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube now to help with installation. This product is a way better deal than the Zagg invisible shield which costs over $20 for just one piece.
I took 1 star away because I think the product can use a little improvement in the fingerprint resistant department. It's not bad at all, but it can be better. Overall, considering the price, this product offers great value.

2.0 out of 5 stars 3D not worth it!!!, October 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I did enjoy the movie, but my review here is not meant to judge the movie as good or bad or worth watching. You can read all of that on other movie review sites. I just wanna judge it on its 3D quality because I think most people that already bought this movie or are considering buying it are doing so because they want the 3D feature.

I love 3D movies and own quite a few of them. I don't think this one is worth the extra $. I don't understand how some other reviewers think that it's on par with Avatar. If you use Avatar and other IMAX 3D movies as a benchmark, this movie is nowhere near it. The 3D effects just don't pop out of your TV screen. So, save your hard-earned $ and go for the 2D version if you really like this movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Blu-ray, October 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Both movies are OK to watch. If you check other movie review sites, you'll see they also give these 2 flicks a so so rating. I think that's fair. I just want to comment on the quality of the Blu-ray. Both movies have very good video and audio quality (DTS). So, that's pretty good. Some of the older movies that were converted to Blu-ray were done so in name only when their video and audio quality were just on par with DVD.
