    After 24 hrs, the screen looks perfect, crystal clear.

    Great product IMO.

    From my experience, it is only anti-glare when it is specifically stated that it is. So always assume it is not anti-glare. I think some companies charge more for the anti-glare feature, just like some companies charge more for the mirror look.

    I'm going to wager I didn't do a good enough job squeezing bubbles out when I installed the screen protector. Its been 2 days and everything looks great except for the ton of bubbles that are still there. I probably should have put more solution on the screen protector.

    I watched a video online of some guy doing it to a xoom online, he drenched it and so did I. Plus putting it on in the bathroom with the shower running really helps. Turned out perfect except that I ended up with a hair under the screen, use a ponytail if you have long hair! Screen + carbon skin for 12 bucks is awesome!

    The normal skin is rubbery for the back, I have that on my G-Tablet. The Carbon Fiber skin is a completely different material.

    Yeah, I screwed up too, I have a lot of 2-3mm bubbles all around the screen and it's been about a day since I did it.

    I also installed the carbon fiber skin and I don't see myself keeping it on because it doesn't quite fit right on the corners. I tried the blow-dryer idea, but it still left wrinkles around the corners.

    I used a heatgun I borrowed from the local "tomato dispensary" and I was amazed at how perfectly the carbon fiber fit after a little stretching, I think most blowdryers are just under powered.

    Well, I wasn't trying to stretch mine, it seemed too big as it is. I was just trying to fold the corners down and around the edges. I got them as hot as I thought safe and a couple corners stuck, but there was a big wrinkle bulging up. Then the little flaps that hug the corners were actually overlapping each other. I was sure I didn't stretch anything when I installed it.

    alright after testing it out, it does reduce desk sliding dramatically. good product.

    Any chance this product will prevent speaker cracks? I've got one on my current touchpad. My replacement is pending but I want to be a bit more proactive this time around.

    I installed the skin last night and I still have like 30-40 bubbles underneath the skin. I wins I read up on drenching the skin and pitting it on with the shower running. I still have hope that it will clear up since it has only been 12 hours, but if it doesn't is there another wah to get the bubbles out? Or do I have to get another skin? Is it possible to pull off the skin now and reapply with more liquid?

    Don't peel it off now! My wife had some very large bubbles, size of dimes and they went away in a few days, yours should as well. If not, call Skinomi and tell them it's not working right, you would have to pay the 3-4 bucks and they'll send you another one, less than a "new" one, barely. I had a white spec on my original one for my G-Tablet, they sent another skin free for that. Very good customer service.

    Anyone know what the standard shipping time to Toronto is? I ordered it on the 22 or 23rd and still nothing yet.

    I've installed it on Saturday night. By Monday, there were about three small bubbles (1-2mm diameter) on the main part of the screen. Today, they have almost disappeared. A little annoyed I didn't realize it wasn't glare-resistant, but love how it has greatly reduced the fingerprint smudges.

    I just thought I would give a bump to let every one know that the deal and coupon codes are still good. At $5.21 shipped, the screen protector is almost as cheap as the generic ones.

    I just got my carbon fiber skin put on. I agree with previous comments - it is quite slippery (which sort of defeats my purpose for having it in the first place) but not quite as slippery as the base TouchPad. Getting everything to line up was really hard. I didn't get the HP symbol lined up right, so I just put the hole piece back in (which looks fairly neat -see pic). The corners are probably not going to stay on.

    The front went on fairly easily, but the applicator scratched it. After that I used the applicator with the HP lint pad over it, and that worked better. I had a terrible time getting the camera hole to line up, and ended up taking it off three times. I think I might have missed wetting some spots on the re-tries, and there are marks underneath the film, that look more like scuffs than air pockets. As the pic shows, they're really visible in the sun. If they don't go away, I'll probably have to take it off.

    Pushing the liquid out from under the screen protector also pulled the edges off the back in a few places. Seems like a bad idea to get the back corners all nice and neat, then immediately start ripping them off with the applicator. I don't know why they don't put the back on last. Now that it's drying, they're back OK as far as I can tell.

    All in all, I did a pretty lousy job.
