Resolved Question

Invisible Shield OK?

by gtrjimaz / December 29, 2012 1:22 AM PST

I'm planning to buy a Zagg Invisible Shield for my iPad. I'm aware of the issues regarding installation and plan to have the Best Buy Geek Squad install it professionally. But will this shield in any way distort colors or brilliance of the display?

I bought my iPad2 at Best Buy and had them install the Zagg invisible Shield Anti-Glare model. I'm thinking of taking it off. My screen is real fuzzy. Never been real happy with it. Maybe BB put it on wrong or something. There were 2 models - regular and anti-glare.

Thanks for responding. I'm wondering if the problem is with the anti-glare version and not the regular version?

I've used Zagg products on quite a few of my Apple products (iPhone and iPad) and I've never had a problem with clarity. But you should definitely ensure that it has been installed properly! If an installation mistake was made, Zagg may send you a new Invisible Shield, give them a call and let them know what you're experiencing. I know they perform quality assurance on all of their products, so it would be a leap for me to imagine that the anti-glare version causes any serious distortion. I'm willing to bet that it was installed improperly. My only issue with the Invisible Shield is that it didn't protect my devices from accidental drops, so I upgraded to something a bit heftier. I hope this helps.

It is a very good product and I have used it on some of my devices. No issues with distortion in the past.
