Well my MediaDevil came yesterday and I have to say I am very impressed with the resultsOriginally Posted by donka
There were two in the pack and I followed the instruction to the letter starting at the camera end instead of the home button end, unfortunately I wasn't very successful and didn't go on square. I managed to remove it and tried again and it was better, but not perfect. I got very few bubbles which came out easily and one spec of dust which I possibly could have lived with, but I tried to get it of and ended up getting more dust under it.
I was at the point of giving up, then I thought I would have a go with the other one, but this time instal it how I like to do things. This time I peeled much more of the backing off and started at the home button. The result was one perfectly installed protector which great alignment and zero dust or bubbles and in fraction of the time
When I took the backing off and saw the finished result I was REALLY pleased with how it looked. It is extremely matt and beautiful to touch, just like an LCD TV. Next I turned the iPad on I was amazed at how good it looked. The colours seem richer and not dulled at all from what I can tell. Fingerprints are reduced dramatically and it's not sticky at all. As for clarity I would say it's excellent, obviously I knew it wouldn't be the same as the naked screen, but it's much better than I thought it was going to be. The only time I really notice that's its there is when I scroll down a page on this forum with it's white background. All you can see is the faintest of feint mesh for the want of a better word. I am using this outside now and I can see the screen really well.
PS. I am still intrigued to compare it with a Moshi

Thanks for the info. I may still try one out at some point, it is just that speckling that annoys me - especially fine text on a white background.
For the record, provided you can get a dust free environment, the easiest way to apply imho is to pull the full backing off, pull the protector taught, hover just about the screen and line up the home button and camera and place down. It goes on perfectly aligned this way although you will initially get a few large air bubbles. Just wrap the cloth around the card and smooth these out to the edges. I do this all the time now and it goes on perfectly, first time. The trick is to ensure there is no dust and then be quick. I do this in my office which is typically sterile but at home, do this in the bathroom with the door closed and the hot tap on for a few mins to suppress any dust in the air. If you use the latter, ensure there is no condensation on the screen before applying.
I use Daedalus Touch extensively on my iPad (which in thumbnail mode, the text gets preeeeetty small) and I have no problems with an antiglare protector over the top.Originally Posted by donka
Brando must have changed their protectors then - I have had a few review samples from them in the past and they are great protectors but like the others did suffer from this issue.
Or perhaps it's also because I'm not as easily annoyed.Originally Posted by donka
I bought the zagg film and had them install it at best buy. Im wondering if it is indeed sposed to look like that mesh-y look for a white background. And not clear like plastic or glass. The look reminds me of how a tv looks when you are right up close to it and see the multicolor specs. Does this make sense? I dont know if i like this look or if its sposed to be this way or what. Anyone have this film on theirs?
That sounds typical of an antiglare screen.Originally Posted by buttrpecan1

Yes, this is somewhat common. The anti glare screen protector works by having a matte screen which tents to catch a lot of the colors and reflect back onto the screen.Originally Posted by buttrpecan1
I have a $5 antiglare protector i wouldn't use mine without it, works great and its crystal clear, so probably based on brand and mine is a now name brand!

Not everyone has to agree with your point of views, but at some point they need to accept Them!
