    Not sure how many went for xtremeguard's screenprotector. They were on sale a while back so i bought a couple to try. They have 2 kinds. the regular one or the HI DEF Dry install one.

    I applied the dry install, not bad and after approx 27 days after i put it on, i noticed a scratch on the screen protector. I'm like NO WAY!

    So i got paranoid and i removed the screen protector to see if the actual screen is scratched too.

    Before i even get to I was in horror ...right after i peeled it off I see that my screen is messed up. Messed up in the sense that it is foggy/muggy/"feels like adhesive" is on it kinda thing. I tried water and rubbing it, not effective, i tried glasses cleansor , not helping. Finally i used alchohol wipes + a good amt of scrubbing finally back to original clean screen.

    The others screen protector brand i've used before is not like this. When i peeled the ones before the screen is left clean, but this one...man....

    just a heads-up guys.

    I'll be trying their "regular" wet install screen protector and see if this happens again..

    I bought an illumashield screen protector off amazon, it's not the best but it doesn't leave that disgusting adhesive you mentioned. Never heard of such a thing happening until now, I'll stay way from this screen protector then.

    Damn, that's why I like my girl, naked. If she's too scratched up then it's time for a new one.:)

    I've ordered a Rhino Shield myself. Have you tried contacting their support?

    havne't contacted their support. But i mean, if i can rub it off, then i guess may its just part of the "experience" lol

    I just tried their wet installation, the quality is definitely worse than the Dry install, but maybe i don't have the weird thing when i take it off lolz

    Worst screen protector ever!!! It was hand cut with scissor by a five your old. I guess you get what you pay for ($1.42 w/90% discount). Don't waste your time/money buying this or any of their other products.
