If you are a human in a house: do not buy!
on May 10, 2013
Do you have a hermetically sealed laboratory?
Are you deficient in the production of bodily oils?
Can you cope with a single (or more likely multiple) circular blemishes on your screen?
Then this product is for you!
For the rest of us living in houses, apartments, outside, on couches, or at work (i.e. those who live on planet Earth) there is almost no possible way to avoid dust from settling on this screen protector. I was so close - it was looking so good - then I had to breath. Human weakness came into the picture and unbeknownst to me a minute dust fragment, some infinitesimal piece of a long lost sock, had settled on my bottom lip. The thin breeze issuing from my mouth was enough to dislodge it and no matter how much other dust I inhaled, it continued plummeting toward the screen protector where it promptly formed sub-atomic bonds with the plastic sheet.
I immersed the screen in soap and then cleansed it with alcohol (so it didn't take forever to dry), without realizing that I lived in a house and that I have a layer of skin, constantly shedding and rejuvenating itself. To make a long-story-short the screen protector was lost forever, slowly gathering fragments of myself until it too will become a living organism.
The moral of this story: $20 in dusty fingerprints and a clear-glass Surface Pro free of scratches (for now) and unsightly bubbles.
Upon further research I found that unless you purchased the RT (sans stylus) many screen protectors function adversely with the pen provided in the Pro package.
End-note: Save frustration and buy a Touch or Type Cover in combination with a case.
