I first got the invisible shield from zagg which was $30. 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
Installation tip: 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.
