This review is from: Anti-Scratch Screen Protector 3-Pack for Kindle Fire HD 7" (will only fit Kindle Fire HD 7" [Previous Generation]) (Accessory)
Having used anti scratch screen protectors on SLR cameras etc I was expecting at 17.99 for 3 a robust product.

However having fitted the first one it barely stayed on and appeared to have little adhesive power and quite flimsy when attached to the Hindle HD screen etc and the labels attached were not that easy to remove whole and left remanants on the protector requiring delicate removal. Also using the applicator card in an attempt to remove bubbles, it slightly scratched the screen protector even when used lightly [the cloth was better] and their were far too many small bubbles which would not disappear and this is despite being familair with using these products regularly.
The actual base holding the screen protector would have been a better product to attach as it was more robust although its thickness for touch-screen would need to be slightly thinner.

One would have thought with Amazons reputation such screen protectors would have been included with the product especially when spending 199 + !7.99 on a powerfast charger + the 17.99 on these anti-scratch protectors which I feel was wasted money.

I was very disappointed with the quality and thickness of these protectors although I accept others will be satisfied, but my experience is they need to be thicker.

Hmmmm? Purely in the interests of future readers of the above review [from Ron] who may be put off from buying this product on the strength of what he's said, I'd like to note the following observations - This is NOT a criticism of Rob btw, just MY observations, comparisons, and interpretation of what he's written.

A) "However having fitted the first one it barely stayed on and appeared to have little adhesive power and quite flimsy when attached to the Hindle HD screen . . ."

I found that mine stuck to the screen like it had been welded on there, because after I'd fitted it I actually tried to gently lift one corner to realign it, and very quickly decided to quit while I was ahead as it was only very slightly misaligned anyway.

B) ". . . and the labels attached were not that easy to remove whole and left remanants on the protector requiring delicate removal."

The labels are attached to the thin plastic protection films attached to each side of the protector, not the actual protector itself, so there is no requirement to remove the labels from anything at all.

C) "The actual base holding the screen protector would have been a better product to attach as it was more robust although its thickness for touch-screen would need to be slightly thinner."

The ones I received weren't attached to a 'base' (?), they were lose inside a polythene bag, with a thin protective plastic film on both sides of each protector to stop them sticking together and getting marked or dusty, and the bag was packaged inside a thin cardboard 'sleeve' box. These protectors do feel overly thick in comparison to ones that I've previously bought for Mobile phones and PDAs etc, but these ones ARE described as follows . . . "Special FOUR-layer film protects against scratches, fingerprints and smudges".

I'm therefore wondering whether this particular reviewer may have inadvertently tried to attach one of the the thin plastic protection films to the Kindle, and then discarded the actual protector? Just sayin'!
