It was extremely difficult to apply and I didn't like the feel of it. My fingers didn't glide as smoothly over it. Also, the holes for camera and home button didn't match. So after looking for a while, I ordered this because of good value and I also wanted to try anti-glare one.
First, installation was very easy, especially after struggling with invisible shield. You just need to be a little patient and clean the screen well. Many people suggest using hot shower to settle the dust. I thought about trying this but I was too lazy so I just did it sitting on my bed and still didn't trap any dust. I was able to peel it and reposition the cover.
The holes for camera and home button matched perfectly and covered all the way to the edge. Some reviewers wrote theirs didn't match exactly so it may just be mine that fit well.
Anti glare was very effective in preventing glare but the screen looked a little grainy. It wasn't too noticeable but I am sensitive to this so I switched to the clear one. Anti glare one also didn't leave any finger prints as supposed to little bit of finger prints on the clear one (though easily wiped).
The clear one is very nice, doesn't interfere with the screen quality, can't even tell it's there. Overall, the quality is very nice and can't beat the price. very happy
Little sticker for picking up dust pre-installation is included. Make a good use of this.
Don't peel the backing all the way at first like it says on the instruction. Peel only an inch or two, align the cover along the edges of the ipad, and press it with included squeegee or your hand as you peel the rest of the backing. Stop this mid-way and check for any dust that might have settled on the the other half of the screen. Use that little sticker to trap it and then finish installing.
The bubbles will can be pushed out if the dust isn't trapped, but if you see a dust inside bubble, you can peel it carefully, remove the dust(i used that small sticker directly on the sticky part of the cover to remove it), and reapply it.
The only thing is after a while, they start to peel off and fold back but that didn't happen for a long time. I would buy again for sure.
As to the supposedly anti-reflex one, it greatly reduces the crispness and visibility of the screen, so it is going to the trash.
I do not recommend these to anyone who appreciates good screen protectors, which are meant to protect the screen from scratches, and also, still allow us to view the screen well.
Overall I have been pleasantly surprised by these screen protectors! In the box:
- 2 x glossy screen protectors
- 2 x matte screen protectors
- a microfiber cloth
I decided that I wanted to use the matte Screen protector, however I did try both for reviewing purposes. The glossy screen protector went on VERY easily, without almost no bubbles first try! You literally cannot tell it is there - my wife used my iPad after I put it on and she didn't even mention it. I had a little more difficulty installing the matte screen protector, whether due to my error or not! there were definitely more bubbles with that one. Once installed, the matte protector was really very good. It doesn't really alter the quality of the screen (at least on the iPad 2) and I actually prefer the tactile feel to it compared to smooth glass. It reduces glare from the sun and overhead lights very nicely - I have three overhead lamps in my office which was my main reason for choosing the matte protector. It is still a lot smoother than a kindle screen, and I don't find my fingers have much more resistance than normal (a common problem with cheap matte protectors). One downside is that the matte protector does reduce viewing angle - there is a minute but noticeable blur when looking at the iPad from the sides. I'm actually okay with this, though. It's an unexpected security measure, and I rarely view my iPad from the side anyway. If you share your iPad a lot while watching movies etc., you may want to reconsider the matte protector.
For those of you that have never installed a screen protector before, here is the best way to do it:
1) Make sure your hands are totally clean! Also, if you can find a relatively dust-free are, use it! Make sure no fans are blowing.
2) Clean your iPad screen meticulously! I use 50 Ct - Zeiss Pre-Moistened Lens Cleaning Cloths for Cameras, Microscopes, Glasses, they are fantastic. After a good cleaning with those, you may need to clean further with the included microfiber cloth. Do so without touching the screen.
3) Take the screen protector and remove one side of the protective plastic. Line it up with the home button and slowly start laying it down. Don't be afraid to take your time, but try your best not to touch the side that is going to be touching the screen.
4) Now you are ready to take the front protective plastic sheet off. Do so.
5) Check for bubbles. If you have any, use a credite card to push them to the exterior. NOTE: if you see a particle of dirt or dust etc. chances are the bubble will not go away. At the very least, it will spread out, but it will still be noticeable. If this happens, you will have to remove the screen, wash it with water, and once dry reapply. If you can live with tiny imperfections (I can't) you can ignore this.
6) You're done!
I would highly recommend these screen protectors. Both the glossy and the matte protectors are some of the best I have tried, and at ten bucks for four, you really can't lose!
