    This review is from: Moshi iVisor XT (HD clear) No-Bubble Screen Protector for Kindle Fire HD 7″ (Accessory)

    I was a little hesitant to spend so much on a screen protector, as there were so many reasonably priced alternatives. However, I was most concerned with protecting the investment I made in the Kindle Fire HD 7″, Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 32 GB – Includes Special Offers, so I took a chance on the Moshi iVisor XT… and I haven’t yet regretted that decision. My Kindle is kept in the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7″ Standing Leather Case, Persimmon (will only fit Kindle Fire HD 7″), and I didn’t even have to remove the case in order to apply the Moshi screen protector. For those who haven’t yet purchased the Kindle Fire HD, the Amazon leather case doesn’t touch the screen (except when the cover is closed, of course), so any screen protector that fits within the confines of the actual screen isn’t affected by the cover. Applying the screen protector was simple. The screen protector has no adhesive, and it is meant to be removed and periodically cleaned, so even if you don’t get a perfect fit the first time, you can keep reapplying until it is properly situated. The Kindle housing around the actual screen is slightly raised, and the screen protector is perfectly sized for the Kindle screen, so it is easy to guide the protector onto the screen without making a mistake. Since there is no adhesive and the screen protector is rather thick, it would be difficult to get bubbles underneath it, but even if air or dust were trapped under the protector, it is super easy to remove, clean, and replace. On a side note, even though there is no adhesive, the screen protector stays securely put once it is placed on the screen. It takes a little manipulation to remove it, so don’t be concerned that its versatility detracts from its core function. As for the distortion and the rainbows others have seen, these have not been a problem for me. I keep the little swatch of microfiber (included) in my Kindle case and wipe the screen protector when necessary. As long as the screen protector is clean, I don’t experience any distortion – no matter the lighting or ambience. This Moshi has the added advantage of being *made* to be removed, cleaned, and reapplied. I do recall that when I initially applied the Moshi, a slight rainbow hue was visible, but it dissipated after one use, possibly due to the heat from the screen or oils from my fingers? As for the sensitivity of the touch-screen being impacted, although the Moshi protector is substantial (which makes me more confident that it will indeed ‘protect’ my Kindle’s screen), I’ve noticed no reduction in the screen’s sensitivity. Games, books, web applications, etc., all work just as well as they do without the protector.

    Best Screen Protector I’ve Ever Used, December 20, 2012

    This review is from: Moshi iVisor XT (HD clear) No-Bubble Screen Protector for Kindle Fire HD 7″ (Accessory)

    Bubbles under screen protectors really annoy me, so when I read that this one installed without them, I was sold. I misunderstood the description and thought it was some sort of framed “front ‘glass'” that snapped onto the frame, but it’s actually a sheet of vinyl, heavier than most screen protector sheets. Once I installed it, I no longer cared that it wasn’t quite what I expected.

    It did, indeed, install without a single bubble! I also liked that it completely covers the glass, so there’s no edge to catch dust. The holes precut for the mic and camera lined up perfectly. I can’t tell that it’s on, and it doesn’t seem to impede the touch sensitivity of the screen at all.

    The item is advertised as reusable, and I can vouch that one can remove it and reinstall it at least once. I had to return my Kindle Fire HD because of a screen failure within a week of purchase. I took the Moshi iVisor XT off carefully and laid it aside on a dust-free surface sticky-side up. When I got home with my replacement Kindle, it went on as smoothly and securely as it had the first time.

    One hint I learned from another reviewer on a different product I’ll repeat here: Put screen protectors on in a steamy bathroom. The steam makes the dust fall out of the air. Once your screen is super-squeaky clean without a single fleck of dust, you can install your protector without entrapping bits of whoknowswhat beneath. I also clean my hands with rubbing alcohol first, to remove oils.

    I am extremely pleased with this screen protector, and even though it’s pricey, I feel it’s worth the cost. My son’s thinking of getting a tablet computer, and I hope we can find a Moshi iVisor XT to fit it as well. This product is far better than any OEM labeled screen protector that I’ve used in my 15+ years of handheld gadgetry!

    It was easy to put on and there are no bubbles. But there’s a really annoying rainbow pattern like an oil slick on water. It says on the package “You may notice rainbow-like patterns beneath the iVisor when the Kindle Fire HD is off or viewed at a slanted angle. This is a natural optical phenomena and is not a defect. It should not affect viewing or performance.” Well, I beg to differ. It is very visible even when it is on and at a straight angle. It is very distracting. I cannot use this and so I had to tear it off, which fortunately was quite easy to do. Waste of $20 though. Save your money unless you’re real visually tolerant of such distractions. It’s funny how they try to minimize this by saying it’s a ‘natural phenomena’. Yeah, opacity is a natural phenomena too, but that wouldn’t be a very good quality for a screen protector, and neither is a persistent rainbow.
