Screen Protective Film w/ Matte Finish for Blackberry PlayBook
Protect the screen on your Blackberry Playbook from scratches and fingermarks with a Monoprice protective screen film. This screen protector is sized to perfectly fit your Blackberry Playbook and comes with a Matte finish, which reduces glare and reflections, yet allows the full spectrum of colors to shine through in all their original glory.
While the film will adhere to the screen, it will not leave any resins or residue when removed. The packaging includes a lint-free cleaning cloth, to ensure that the screen is clean before applying the film, and an installation card, to help remove any small air bubbles that may occur during application.
Blackberry Playbook not included!

How to apply the Screen Protective Film to your phone:
Please turn the device off. Clean the surface of the touch screen with the cloth provided in a dust-free environment. Please do not use cleaning agents.
Start by folding down the backing layer. Avoid touching the back of the film, which may leave your fingerprints on it, peel off about an inch. Make sure the adhesive side is facing down. Note: Removing the backing all at once may cause static that could attract unwanted dust.
Apply the film with adhesive side toward the screen. Align the screen protector with the screen edge and place it in position by applying light pressure to the film at the point of contact (front side).
Work your way across the screen, slowly pulling the backing layer off.
Be sure not to leave any bubbles on the screen surface as you go. If you have any air bubbles when finished, see below.
If you notice bubbles as you go, pull back and retry. If it's caused by dirt, attempt to lightly flick it off or use the sticky side of a piece of tape, (clothes lint roller tape is best).
Use the installation card provided to smooth out any bubbles not caused by dirt. Apply light pressure evenly across the surface until the film is completely adhered. If no dirt is present, very small air bubbles may dissipate in a few days.
It was fairly easy to apply, although I did end up with a couple air bubbles around the edge due to dust because I didn't clean it well enough. Nothing under the actual screen though, so that's good, and I'm pretty happy with how it looks.
The matte finish gets rid of most of the reflections and glare which is nice. It also makes fingerprints less noticeable. There is a little bit of a visible graininess due to the matte finish which is more noticeable up close and on white screens, but it's nothing serious and easy to ignore.
It didn't come with a little plastic card and I ended up ruining the credit card I used to get the air bubbles out. Thankfully, it was an old card I didn't need anymore so yea, don't use your good credit card when you do this!

Pros: Good finishing and quality.
Cons: Didn't come with a squeegee for removing air bubbles.
Would buy from monoprice again. Hopefully there will be a squeegee included to remove air bubbles.

Great Value for a Great Product
Pros: Perfect fit to the BB Playbook, and very affordable. Protects the screen nicely without taking away from any of the sharpness of the images.
Cons: As with all screen protectors, got some dust under as I was applying it, results in a few bubbles.
Would have given it a 10 if it came with an application card.
by Monoprice Administrator Sorry for the trouble with the screen protector. For applying the screen protector with the least amount of bubbles possible we recommend doing it in the bathroom while running a hot shower. The steam will pull any dust particles to the floor then you can apply the screen protector and smooth it out with a credit card. If the protector is being significantly problematic you can pop the air bubble with a pin and smooth them out as well.
by Philip Seeto Thank you. Those are helpful hints and I will try that next time.

Good Screen Protector
Pros: Sense of security Gives the screen a tactile feel instead of slippery glass
Cons: Mine didn't come with an installation card but didn't need it
A great screen protector for the playbook. Cuts down on fingerprints and glare - no longer need to carry around a cloth to wipe the screen clean anymore. Installation was a little tricky but Monoprice offers a video-how-to. I ended up buying a couple of them because of the price but haven't changed the original yet (going on a month and a half).
I've always been a fan of the matte finish screen protectors over the transparent ones. Highly recommend this one from Monoprice!
