    This review is from: Acase(TM) Apple iPad 2 / iPad 3 (The New iPad) AcaseView Screen Protector Film Clear for Apple iPad 2 2nd Generation and iPad 3 (The New iPad) Wifi / 3G / 4G LTE Model 16GB, 32GB, 64GB (3-Pack) (Electronics)

    This screen protector has a strong rainbow effect (more greenish) once applied. I will post 2 or 3 pictures as “customer’s pictures” for the product.

    Bought this Acase screen protector for my ipad and also bought the iphone version based on reviews (I always spend half a day reading reviews before buying something). 🙂

    I managed to apply it perfectly (the pictures show a spot in a corner, that is not a bubble). The bathroom trick and scotch tape works (also a rocked blower that I use to clean my DSLR lenses).

    It is clear and I like it not being matte. It feels close to the naked glass, but has a little more drag to it.
    You can see the rainbow effect in different type of lightning, not just fluorescent (I don’t have fluorescent lights and the pictures are taken in bathroom under CFL lights).
    It makes the screen and black margins very ugly. You can’t see it or it is hard to see it on the screen while the screen is on, but you can see it on the black margins.

    Lots of good reviews and just a few mentioned the rainbow effect. Maybe we got a bad batch.. I tried just one since I applied it perfectly. I was thinking to return it to amazon, but will give it a second chance. Will try tomorrow a second sheet, but not in the bathroom. I want to exclude the theory that the rainbow effect my be caused by the humidity in the air. Will try in a dry room.

    Will update the review after I test the second sheet.
    iphone version has the same issue (front and back, but a little less visible, applied at the same time)

    Edit 12/17/11 – I tried to apply a second piece to my iPHONE under dry conditions. Same rainbow effect. Tried the iphone version first because it is easier to apply. Since both are from acase and both had the same issue, I would not spend the time and try another one for ipad. I can tell you that the air was very dry (because of winter heating). Looks like it’s not the moisture that causes this.

    I applied it perfectly again (on the iphone). Scotch tape is the most important part. Just peel it off and apply and remove scotch tape to the side with dust. If you don’t get it straight, just peel it off and reapply without touching the underneath. I used a razor knife to peel a corner, remove the dust with scotch and stick it back.

    (Sorry for my English, not my first language, nor my second 🙂 )

    It comes with 3 sheets total and other tools that you may need to install it. The film is ok in quality. I failed first time and it shows too many bubbles, and 2nd time was successful but It was uncomfortable to use stlus which I just purchased (Bamboo)

    Nothing complex to say here. It is in fact too difficult to remove all dust from a normal environment, and the negative reviewers aren’t stupid, inept, or drama queens who are exaggerating. It is just not possible to apply these things without SOME microscopic dust particles getting between the screen and the cover… so bubbles are not avoidable. So they end up in the trash, a couple dollars down the drain.

    On the positive side, there wasn’t anything wrong with this items construction or packaging or anything, they seem fine. They fit the iPad 2 screen perfectly.
