2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't fit Nook Tablet screen, March 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Anti-glare LCD screen shield for Barnes & Noble Nook Color (3 Pack) (Electronics)
I paid the $20 at B&N for their screen shield for my wife's Nook Color. The shields were maybe 1/32" narrower than the Nook's screen, and after a few tries, I got it on perfectly with no bubbles. I bought this item for much less. It arrived looking exactly like the $20 version at B&N, however, the shield is maybe 1/64" wider than the Nook's screen! I think that is why it is so cheap. I had to cut the edge with scissors, which ruined the first shield. Very difficult to see where you are cutting on something transparent. I cut the 2nd one super extra carefully but still cut it crooked.

I could not get rid of all the bubbles when I installed it. That is probably my fault but still very frustrating. One cause of bubbles is dust. Next time, I will have a compressed air can on hand to eliminate the dust. Also, next time, I might try using our fancy Swedish paper cutter (with the wheel blade) to trim the over sized shield.

I like that each shield has a protective layer of plastic on both sides and that I get three sheets.

Once I turn on my Nook Tablet, I cannot see the bubbles and the ragged, crooked edge. But I still hate the imperfection.

I strongly recommend that you use a shield like this. Even if you are extra careful with the screen, you will still put wear marks on it because your finger has oil and dust, and that eventually causes enough microscopic scratches to be noticeable. Much better to have a throw-away screen shield than a scratched screen you cannot replace.
