Not worth the price tag I'm afraid. Far too expensive for what they are.
It provides a perfect fit to keep your screen in pristine condition and can be wiped clean. Once in place, it's hard to see it's even there and it doesn't affect the clarity of the display at all. An excellent buy, and there's even a second protector to use as a spare or give to a good friend!
A very useful addition to your beloved Kindle Fire
Whilst it is always best to apply a protector to a screen before use, the cleaning cloth easily removes any surface dust and fingerprints; slightly misting the screen does help here. I found it took a couple of minutes to remove all dust, although know that this is time well spent since even one speck of dust left behind means an air bubble to remove later. I also gave the protector a quick wipe over before starting the task to ensure no dust had been attracted to it, just waiting to fall onto the clean screen...
Both protectors have labels indicating which side to stick onto the Kindle screen. I peeled away a couple of inches and used the supplied smoothing tool to remove as many air bubbles as possible as I slowly applied the protector. I ended up with a few air bubbles but managed to push those to the edge of the screen without too much trouble. The top cover peeled off smoothly to reveal a perfectly protected screen.
This protector was easy to apply and the fact there are two in the pack means you can always have a second go if something goes wrong with your first attempt, or have a spare to use in the future.
To summarise - the screen protector is a great idea but is too difficult to apply and thus not worth the price.
However there is a problem with applying it to the surface. I have cleaned the screen surface with the conventional cleaning cloth and with a specific anti dust cloth, and have found it impossible to adhere it without getting bubbles.
The small card provided does not move the smaller bubbles. Neither does using a credit /bank visa type card.
Having encountered this problem, I have asked numerous people with the Kindle Fire if they have managed to apply the protector without the bubbles effect. Not one single person admitted they have been successful regardless of how carefully they cleaned the screen or applied the protector.
Please note: these screen protectors will only fit the Kindle Fire and will not fit any other model of Kindle including the Kindle Fire HD.
You receive 2 of the plastic covers and if you can get your cover on cleanly the first time then you can put the spare away for later when the first cover gets worn out.
In order for you to apply your screen protector without air bubbles, which can be caused by particles of dust, and without finger prints or smears under the plastic you need to clean the screen. Marware have included a lovely little cleaning cloth for you to wipe the screen with. I recommend putting the Kindle on a clean table top, without a cloth on, so that if any static should build up when you have wiped (or are wiping) the screen it won't attract particles before you attach the plastic shield.
Once it is clean, start to peel back the film from the plastic cover and line it up with either the top or the bottom of the screen. When you are satisfied start to press it into place, while removing the film a little at a time - it took several minutes to complete but it worked for me and I was left with a cleanly attached protective shield without any air bubbles or wrinkles.
As a bonus the cloth which you receive for wiping your Kindle Fire screen is also very good for cleaning your glasses - I cleaned my reading glasses with them and a smear that had been there since I got them finally disappeared.
