    I purchased a Cygnett Screen Protector at a local Frys for $7.99. The quality is good enough for the price and I'm quite satisfied with it. It works well indoors and glare from lighting is minimal.

    Thanks for the video. I am now considering buying this screen protector. I just cant see myself spending 30 on only 1 protector like powersupport, even though their product is amazing quality.

    Nice to see a recommendation for a UK item.

    I tried a Bodyguardz screen protector, but found it very grabby. I had the same issue with a freebie I received with one of my cases. Does your one feel like the original glass and is it nice and smooth?

    I bought some cheapos as well. They are on the way to me. I've always used cheap ones and never had an issue.

    I have just received mine and I have to agree they are great.

    Unfortunately I wasted 2 as dust got under them I couldn't get rid, but that's no fault of the product. The 3rd one went on perfectly with hardly any bubbles, but I got rid of the easily.

    The end result is perfect and virtually undetectable and feels 99.99999999999999999% like the naked screen

    £4.99 for 6 is an absolute bargain, thanks for the link!!!

    Upon your review, I decided to take a stab at the cygnett ant-glare screen protector. I'm really impressed, and for $7.99, you can't beat it. Screen's protected, glare and smudges reduced, and my pocket book isn't depleted....works for me.
