Got my Boxwave Anti Glare screen today and wanted to provide a review for folks who are on the fence. It came by USPS in an envelope. It was in a thin plastic bag with instructions, one of those microfiber cloths, and something called a cleartouch applicator (basically a thin piece of plastic/cardboard hybrid used to smooth out bubbles under the screen). Application seemed easy but there was so much dust, hairs, etc getting stuck to the adhesive side of the screen. I read up on a tip here in the forums about applying it in the bathroom with the shower running on hot. That worked really well to say the least. I also took some scotch tape in there with me and removed some lint on there. Before I applied it, I ran it through the hot water in the shower real quick and shook it like a polaroid camera before applying. There were many water droplets on the screen's adhesive side but when I put it on they disappeared and eventually evaporated. I got it on there pretty nice with no bubbles. There are a few tiny bubble like things on the side but not on the screen and invisible when the screen is on. The screen did indeed lose its nice smooth glass touch. Instead theres a bit of a plasticy feel. But it has its own nice feeling to it so I'm liking it now. There was also loss of optical clarity, definitely noticeable but not to a first time user. but that was easy for me to get used to. The anti glare works great! I played a video for my mom, sister and I to watch with the lights on and they were able to see it from the angles they were sitting at. Also, smudges and fingerprints are GREATLY reduced, however they still occur. Fingerprints are only noticeable if your hard press the screen and then look for them in the light. Same goes for facial oils. All in all I am greatly satisfied with my purchase. I was able to rinse the thing in water, apply it under "steamy" conditions and see the amazing results. Yes there is a significant noticeable loss of clarity and you do lose the smooth glass feeling. But the new feeling is just as easy to get used to and does not interfere with touch sensitivity one bit. hope that helps everyone.
