    Taking a break from working so I thought I'd kill some time helping people as cheap as me..

    If you are on a budget and need backups for bad install and future use, this is a very good deal.

    I just purchased and received these a week ago. Received 3 for $3.50 shipped.

    Each comes with a cloth and squeegee. It is a dry application which is pretty easy and the same as most (removable top and bottom film). Just make sure you are in non dusty environment. Bubbles easy to squeegee out. Like others, use tape to get rid of dust if you did it in a dusty place.

    They have 3 cut outs. 1 for the trackpad, 1 for the led sensor (top front right), and 1 for the side-by-side light and proximity sensors (top front left). The cut outs for the sensors are very small.

    I haven't had it long so I can't say much for long term durability, but so far it's holding up just fine.

    Things I like:
    -Crystal Clear (no distortion/orange peel)
    -$1.20 each
    -Protected Purchase (Amazon)
    -Anti-glare helps in sun
    -Dry application
    -No loss in touch screen sensitivity (exactly the same as naked).
    -Very smooth scrolling/swyping (fingers swype beautifully - even when fingers have moisture or sweat.)
    -Cut-out for light and proximity sensor for "naked" accuracy. Small.

    Don't Like:
    -Cut-out for the led notification sensor (not sure why this was needed) - but it's small anyways.
    -Anti-fingerprint is decent and effective but not as good as some others (like the Zagg). You will still get some smudging/smears especially if you use hand creams/chemicals without washing your hands - but you can just wipe it off with your shirt... nonetheless, it is still an upgrade from the smudging attracted by the "naked" screen.

    Anyways, if you want a decent screen protector to protect from chemicals/dirty fingers ruining screen, scratching, anti-sun glare etc.. then this is a good alternative if you only want to spend about $1 per screen protector.

    I'll update on durability, but for the price I don't need it to last a year or even 6 months anyways. I have 2 more.

    I plan on trying to put on the PhantomSkinz I've had sitting around for months. I've been using the Clarivue since it came out, but I don't like it.

    If the PS install fails (I'm new to the wet install), I will definitely pick up these.

    Your welcome- I just saw your Clarivue review.. I think I'll stay way if I need a future purchase. I've heard good things about the phantom skinz so you should let me know how it goes.

    But for $1.20 right now I'm satisfied. :) I'll let you know how it holds up over the next few weeks but I think it will be just fine.

    I had a Zagg (free from best buy) and it mysteriously developed rainbow lines on half of the screen after 2 weeks. I just tossed it. On top of the orange peel and terrible touch sensitivity + stickiness, it wasn't even worth a warranty replacement.

    These are really nice, I order a couple chargers for m yphone and it came with one of these screen protects. You can't even tell it's on the phone, gives it a great feel especially compared to the Verizon protector that was very obvious . It was also extrmely simple to put on, although it didn't come with as nice of a cloth or application plastic piecee ( dont' know what to call it lol) but I just used the ones I got with my Verizon protectors. I can't imagine the $20 protectors being any better

    I highly reccomend this screen protector
