    Installation not a problem, April 18, 2012

    The other revirewer complaining about installation probably didn’t take the time to watch the install videos on the invisible shield we site or on YouTube. You really need to see someone else do it before you try it yourself. The product is not that difficult to install, once you understand the tricks. You will see that while installing and even after, it will kind of look like a mess. You need to get this thing and your hand VERY wet. The more water the better. Honestly, the first time I saw someone do it at a Best Buy, I thought they were going to ruin the device they used so much water. Obviously, you need to be careful,mand not do anything dumb like submergingnit or putting in under a running faucet, but you can get it much more wet than you might otherwise think. Once on, there will still be small imperfections but you leave the device off for 24 hours (heat from the ipad will interfere with the adhesion process) and let it dry and everything tightens up and it will look perfect. Plus the company has a life time warranty.
    Personally, I like to wear nitrate gloves (latex fine too) to help avoid fingerprints, but if you wet the iPad surface, both side of the film, AND your fingers ( even keep a bowl of water handy to keep your fingers VERY wet during the install, you can prevent fingerprints without using gloves.

    Now personally I think the item is still over priced and I would strongly recommend that you avoid the matte finish because it kind of causes a strange sort of pixilated effect even on the ipad1 which is kind of distracting and takes away from the screen. Go with the HD version ( even for the ipad1).

    As one other review noted, it is true your finger won’t feel like it is sliding across glass, because, well, it’s not. Duh! But it doesn’t interfere with operation unless you are a completely mental. It does provide more grip and helps prevent the iPad from slipping.

    Over a long period of time (2+yrs) I have also found that the film will start to yellow ( though you probably wont notice unless you take it off) and then it’s time to take advantage of the lifetime warranty.

    Only 4 stars because of price.

    I wrote this review on Bestbuy.com on June 2012 when iPad3 first release, I gave it 2 stars at that time because I didn’t know it is actually not tough at all. Please read my review at then, then read my newest update on 8/27/2012. and I will give it ZERO star now!

    Well, I got this screen protector while I purchased the new iPad. The reason I purchased this has being there aren’t too many choices when The New iPad released. I didn’t know the iPad2 screen protector would also work on The New iPad, otherwise I would get my usual EXiM brand screen protector on Ebay instead.

    Actually, I didn’t know what I was dealing with before I go with this screen protector. I didn’t know it is “Wet Process” screen protector, which is very rare in the market. Most of the screen protector are using either static, or ultra low adhesion removable adhesive. Thank God that BestBuy installed for me, otherwise I might damage my iPad with too much liquid on it. If you want to get this, I strongly suggest you go on YouTube and see how to install this thing, I bet most of you would back off! (deduct one star)

    So, BestBuy installed this for me almost flawlessly, it could be worse if I install by myself. However, the first thing I noticed is that the Zagg screen protector has texture on it. No matter how clear it is, it has the texture on it. The texture makes the screen look ugly. More over, it is a hint of slightly yellowish color on it, so it makes the screen protector very noticible. The reason for getting The New iPad” is most for its screen resolution and retina display, Zagg screen protector totally killed it, it defeated the purpose. Yes, it might be very taugh screen protector, but it also makes the screen worse than it supposed to be. I don’t just say it, I own another The New iPad for my wife, and I applied a very very cheap made screen protector from Ebay, which only costed me $1.00. (YES, ONE dollar include shipping). This cheap made screen protector aren’t like the EXiM I mentioned before, it’s not very well made, but still, it makes my wife’s The New iPad looks great, brighter, and crisper than mine. The cheap made screen protector is not super clear like EXiM brand when holding on the hands, but after apply, you almost couldn’t tell there are a screen protector on it. Zagg is $29.99, very expensive, and it called itself “Invisible Shield”, while it is VERY VISIBLE. (Deduct another star)

    Moreover, the texture on the screen protector is not only make the screen resolution and brightness suffer, it also made the touch screen lesser responsive. Two reason, one is the Zagg is too thick, the Apple touch screen is Capacitive, too thick of screen protector will make the electric harder to transfer. Another reason is that Zagg is textured, it creats resistance to our finger, it doesn’t feel smooth at all. With the cheap made screen protector on my wife’s screen, the touch is more responsive, and much smooth to surf around on the screen with the finger tips. (Deduct the 3rd star)

    Other from the previous 3 negative points, Zagg is very very strong, perhaps the strongest screen protector on the market right now. The question is that Do we need to strong screen protector? or do we want to have smooth touch expenrience and better display? You can only choose either or if you go with Zagg. (I take this paragraph back, please read my update on 08/27/2012)

    New Update 08/27/2012
    After a few month, I really couldn’t stand this screen protector. It is going more and more yellowish and make my white iPad looks bad. The texture on it made my screen looks like low resolution, and people are confusing if my iPad is 1st generation. The touch screen is not as good responsive as my wife’s iPad3 with cheap screen protector, so I finally decided to take it down from my screen.

    After I took it down, I thought maybe it is time to test its toughness for real. I saw a lot of YouTube clips about this Zagg screen protector, the host of the video were using knife, key, abrasive, and even saws to try to destroy this Zagg protector and none of them went through. After the testing (YouTube clips), the host took down the Zagg protector and nothing happened on the iPad, and the protector was ok as well. I wouldn’t do that kind of extreme test when this Zagg is on my iPad, but it is ok for me to do the test after I took it off. So I stick this Zagg screen protector on my glass table, made sure I applied it the same way like the website instrocted. I even used the solution came with the Zagg in its original box. After it dried for more than 24 hours, I used my swiss knife to cut on it real lightly. The power that I applied on it was so light that I believe was lighter than I usually open the envelop. I did it several times. I also used keys to scratch on it. After all that, I took it off from my glass table, and I found the knife cut through the screen protector,…

    Difficult to glide finger on-terrible corrugated surface, March 31, 2012

    This product covers the glass surface of the iPad 3, but your finger will stick thus making it difficult for finger gestures. The product literature states it does not take away from the clarity and purity of the retina display, but it does exactly that. When you look at the surface of a new iPad it looks glossy and smooth. This product, like so many screen protectors, has a corrugated surface that takes away from the beauty of the iPad screen. I would not recommend this product if visual clarity is of upmost importance to you.
