I was nervous about buying these because of all the negative reviews. But online I read a review by someone in the industry who loved the matte finish which reduced the glare of the glass screen. So I decided to purchase it, and resolved to take my time and install it slowly and carefully. But first, I went to the website on the package and watched Speck's how-to video about the correct way to install the screen. I even played the video on my iPad while I was installing the screen, so I could follow the guy step by step. I found the video very helpful and got my first sheet put on with no problem! I really like the screen; it definitely cuts down on glare, and I can let the kids use my iPad for playing games without worrying about the screen getting scratched. I also really like the soft texture of the shield; it is slightly velvety but the iPad screen is just as responsive as it was before I put the sheild on. I figure, I spent so much money on the iPad, it is worth the really affordable price of these to protect my investment!
