    NOTE: this is just my story, these things are probably great if you can get 'em on.

    So today my order of Clarivue screen protectors came in. I wasn't totally on board with these things due to the stories about the fit, but figured I'd try them anyway. They came in the mail with a nice little package and a cleaning cloth, all good, right?

    Quick backstory: I have slightly shaky hands. Not good for something like this.

    The first cover took 15 minutes to get lined up, and in the process required so many peel-offs and realignment that the edges were all chewed up and looked like shit. Fine, I got two, let's try again.

    Number two was no better. I had it lined up, only to discover that there were three bubbles that weren't moving... due to teeny dust flecks under there. Great. Peel off the cover, use a little tape, do it again. More flecks. Repeat. Over and over. I could NOT get the dust off of the back of this thing once it stuck on there. Just wasn't happening. Frustrated, I just crumpled this one up.

    LESSON: be careful with these things. Let's hope I do better with the Wrapsol. :(

    I could see how you have shaky hands based off of your avatar. ;)

    Oh well.. Best Buy would do it for you for a small charge they are good at applications if you can't do it yourself for whatever reason.

    You were probably installing it in a dusty environment. I tried putting a screen protector on while sitting on the couch, and later on my bed and it was impossible. Best to do it in the bathroom. I wonder why the manufacturers of these things don't suggest this.
