I want to get the invisible shield but I'm afraid I'll screw up the installation, is there any videos/pictures/guides of someone installing to to anything so I can see how easy/hard it is
Also, how hard/easy is it to install the Hori ones?
I ordered the invisible shield kit because I was impressed with their videos and their warranty and had nothing but problems with them. The first problem I ran into was that the protectors were cut improperly - they left a portion of the top screen completely unprotected. The second was the installation method - they give you a spray bottle of liquid to coat your hands and screen with. Due to how soft the material is, you can't install it as easily as traditonal screen protectors - you actually have to handle the shield and slide it around to get it to fit properly. Due to being handled so much during the installation, there were fingerprints that were very visible on the underside of the protector. I have no idea why they make you use a liquid to install it, but it doesn't work well.
I contacted Shield Zone about the improper cut and the odd installation instructions, and they offered to send me a replacement if I would pay to ship the origionals back, and also pay to have the new ones shipped. It's not an unreasonable offer, but these are screen protectors - they're supposed to be cheap, and they should be cut correct to begin with. I already paid 15 bucks for two small sheets of plastic - to pay shipping both ways for a replacement due to an error on their part would increase the cost of the shields by over 40%, which is just too much for shields for the DS. I'm not paying that when the next shipment could be cut improperly as well. So I got a refund and bought another set of JavoEdge's.
I've tried several protectors over the years, and I'd have to say JavoEdge is leaps and bounds ahead of any of the others. I origionally started using JavoEdge with my phat DS, and the protectors worked so well that when I got my lite, I just removed them and put them on my lite. They left no residue behind, are completely washable and reuseable and they dont' scratch. Much easier to use than this shield zone junk.
