Easy to Install and Does the Job
on November 27, 2012
Over the years I have used several different brands of screen protectors and each has their plusses and minuses (mainly minuses), but I have learned the Marware brand is the better one out there (especially compared to Belkin) as it last longer and is easier to install.
This cover does what it is supposed to do: it protects your Kindle's screen and reduces the glare - in my case it helps stop a lot of the smudgy fingerprints. This one was not too hard to line up and put on, either.
Before you install it, let me point out a couple of things:
1. Clean your Kindle's screen with the soft cloth that comes with the screen protector. DO NOT use water to assist you, but use a gentle wiping motion with the cloth. Why? You don't want to put the cover over a bunch of fingerprints or miniscule pieces of lint and have your fingerprints / lint memorialized on your Kindle! Be sure to carefully check the screen after you think you have cleaned it by holding it up sideways / at an angle in a well-lit room: you may be surprised there is one little bitty piece of dust still on the screen. If you don't remove it, you WILL see it as a bubble underneath your screen protector.
2. Be patient, line it up, and go slow! This cover doesn't have much wiggle-room to be slightly off - if you go just a fraction at an angle to one side, you will start covering the Kindle's edge / casing vs. the screen. If that happens, slowly back it up and start again.
3. Use the straight-edge or a credit card slowly working from the inside / middle to the outside. Be patient, take your time, and be consistent or that small bubble will not go away or, worse, the small bubble will become a larger bubble.
Overall, this is not too bad and does what it is supposed to do, and I think you would rather have a screen protector vs. a scratched up Kindle!
