Santa, via my wife brought me the new Kindle paperwhite, complete with leather case and a Moshi Airfoil screen protector (£17.95) Unfortunately the later was out of stock, and Amazons estimated delivery was mid January, although in fact it arrived on the 2nd January.
I have a screen protector on my three year old Kindle keyboard, and wished to protect my paperwhite in the same way, especially as it has a touch screen which is more likely to get scratched or marked. I wasn't expecting too much at this low price, but thought it would enable me to use my new "toy" straight away without any screen concerns, untill the Moshi arrived.
In common with other screen protectors, each one is sandwiched between 2 tagged protective layers for ease of fitting. Although this is a simple job which only takes a few minutes, preparation and cleanliness are essential for a neat finish. My advice is to work in a room with your windows and doors closed while you are doing this, to preventing any draughs. To clean your screen, dab a MINIMAL amount of Lens cleaner onto one of the tiny cloths provided, wipe the screen with it and then dry with the second cloth. If you have any dust specs left, these can be gently blown away with a hairdryer SET TO COOL or by using some low tack masking tape. When ready, pull the first protective layer (No 1) just halfway off the screen cover (this enables you to hold it on both sides while you are positioning it) keeping the STICKY SIDE DOWN to stop any dust settling on it. Line up the bottom first and then press it onto the screen using the supplied little spreader, or you can use the like's of a bank card. Working from the centre, outwards, ensure that you have no trapped bubbles before removing the second (No2) protective layer. Job done! This may sound "long winded" but it only took me about five minutes, and was really easy to fit.
TIP. Having two spare protectors, you could even practise with one of them, adhering it to a spare piece of glass, or even a window,(always being cautious with glass!) to give yourself ccnfidence. It will be easy to remove when you have finished.
I have been using my Paperwhite for a few months with the screensaver fitted, and found it to be a considerable improvement, day and night over my Kindle K. I can also vouch that it has not affected the sensitivity of the touch screen controls, which I feel are a joy to use after using the KK for the past three years.
