For the money, its a pretty good deal: two films for $15. Installation is pretty easy, and I was able to squeegee out any bubbles successfully with a credit card. Note that my envelope did NOT include the advertised squeegee in the package.
Functionally the film leaves something to be desired. My screen is definitely protected - at least the portions that are covered. It is short by 1-3 mm at all of the edges - I realize this seems small, but it ends up being a surprising amount of uncovered real estate. Given how early I purchased my iPad 2 it is likely that the film I received was an early production run and later runs will fit better - I'll leave that to another reviewer.
Glare from the sun or lighting is definitely reduced, but at the expense of screen clarity. The textured film, which reduces glare,also creates a tremendous amount of noise on the screen itself, such that it is sometimes painful to read documents for long periods of time. It is functional - don't get me wrong - but you definitely notice it, even after several days.
The film also collects fingerprints - much more aggressively than the naked screen does, in fact. Because of the texture it is also somewhat difficult to clean - I have had to use my heavier microfiber cloths and a bit of moisture to remove oil left from even recently washed hands.
Overall I have to say that if you get what you pay for then the myGear film is a deal - it does protect, and it does reduce glare, but the tradeoffs on screen clarity and finger smudges are expensive ones.
It totally ruined one of the great features of iPad, so I removed it immediately.
I guess if you use your iPad mostly outside under direct sunlight, this might work.
But if you use it indoor, it is just waste of money.
However, I have great mechanical skills, and found the installation difficult.
In fairness, part of the problem was my fault. I was in a hurry.
Had the instructions not been meager, I probably would have been more successful.
An example of my poor instructions comment is that the package comes with 2 "Pre-installation films".
These are little rectangles of the same material as the screen protector.
There is no explanation why they are included or how to use them.
There is a two minute U-Tube video now available apparently by mygear
in which a fellow with a very flip attitude demonstrates how to install these.
It is funny to note that even he obviously doesn't know what the "Pre-installation film" rectangles are.
If you purchase this item, be sure you watch that 2 minute video on U-Tube or others on U-Tube before attempting to install.
Be aware that you can take protectors to a big box store and have them installed for you for a small fee.
The down side is that is does make the screen resolution decrease.
