Once it dried, 12-24 hrs, the few tiny bubbles and slight imperfections smoothed out and it's totally invisible, as long as there's not dust and lint that got caught underneath the protector. It's not anti-glare and the protector has a very smooth feel and my fingers just glide over the screen. Greasy fingerprints stick to it, but I can wipe it clean with a dry cotton cloth and it comes out nice and clean and shiny. The screen protector that I got does not have a cutout for the home button.

Every time I buy a smartphone or tablet, I immediately install a screen protector to protect it from smears and scratches. I just got a Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 from BestBuy. The only had one brand of screen protector, Zagg InvisibleSHIELD. I bought it and installed it, but I really didn't like it. Even after the screen had dried overnight and I spent a couple of days breaking it in, it still had a "orange peal" fell to it. Sometimes my finger would momentarily pause or stick to the screen while swiping back and forth. So I dumped it and started looking for a replacement.
Now, i'm confused.

I tried the 2 pack "USA" Ebay ones, they go on easily, but I found they get oily much quicker than bare, and also showed scratches/wear after a month so I removed it. Many are "dry" these days, much easier to install, basically "static cling" holds them on (and works well)... just watch out for dust!

This one doesn't look bad, I may give it a try: http://www.amazon.com/Lexerd-Samsung...335783&sr=8-16

r u talking about this one http://www.amazon.com/Skinomi-TechSk...335783&sr=8-12 but on amazon there are no reviews for this Skinomi

Most of the dry ones, you can wash with soap and water, dry out, and reapply.

Technically you can wet apply any adhesive protector if you want. Wet application allows you to get the screen in the exact location or where you want it to be. Instead of pealing up and moving around and possibly getting your fingerprints on the adhesive side. Back in the day I would find a picture in a mag or xerox and attach it to Contact paper (Clear). Then I would soak the sheet in water and cut to size I wanted. After soaking long enough I would peel off all the paper, only leaving the image then apply wet to i.e. Guitar. and let dry. After twenty years these self made decals are still there on my Guitars.

I have gotten no reply to my email to pdair asking them to describe their screen protector and how it is applied. I also asked to make sure the cut outs were on the protector for the speaker and the camera. When a company does not reply it tells me that they are not much interested in their customers or potential customers. If I ever do get a response from them about the pdair screen protector I will pass along what they say.

Well I just didnt like the way it lined up so i used a little scotch tape to pull it off,lined it up again and pressed it down.It was a shot in the dark but it stayed and has been on now for about a month with no problems.

I've finally got the player. Would really appreciate your feedback on the following, so i can finalize the purchase of accesories. Thanks in advance.


Screen Protectors (german)!!!
Has anyone used any of the following???Any idea if they would be any good???
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Golebo-Cryst...item3a6c965768
(interested in this one as they offer free shipping)


Cases:
-should i get this one from ebay
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Samsung-Gala...item4ab27af235

or this one(PDair). I guess the quality of PDair is good?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Leat...item79164137eb


Gel case - maybe to use when i'm using the player @ home instead of using the PDair case?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/TPU-Gel-Case...item20c153ce3a


Would this Full Body Protector be any good?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Samsung-Gala...item336d7f3be0



If you have used some other product which you think is good or better then the above, please please let me know.



thanks a lot for your attention!

I guess I was suppose to post this here...sorry!

I just wanted to let everyone know I found this: SGP Book Cover Folio PreOrder
Maybe the four is coming soon...

I'm kinda excited although it is a little pricier than I wanted...go figure right! Not too many options, so it seems.

I've had my 5.0 for a couple of weeks now and really LOVE it!!

I wouldn't get one if it really looks like that. The cutouts for the camera and speakers are in the wrong place.

Looks correct to me. It appears to be a back view.

It appears that there will be a desktop dock as well:

That I'll skip it though; what I'm using works just as well and was a whole lot cheaper.


Have a Magical Day.

That looks cool but I probably won't bother. I'd be the one that would accidentally knock the unit off my desk while charging it...lol

What is more interesting here than the case and the dock is that SAMSUNG is suddenly supporting the SGP 5 with accessories. Until now there has been nothing directly from Samsung (if these really are from Samsung as BH claims - there is nothing in Samsung's website about these and if you search these only BH comes up in the search with them.)
