OK, I ordered some Nu-Shields to see what they were like...
Arrived quickly and are packaged nicely. The instructions are OK, except for Step 1, which tells you to clean the shields as well as the screen. This seems a bit odd- couldn't they ship them clean and ready to use? Brando and G2s are already clean. On the other hand- the Nu-Shileds look perfectly clean as well. (Although, dust and lint can be attracted to the plastic, so puffing it off before installing it is always a good idea!)
Installation was easy- but it seems a bit small on my prism- it moves a bit easier than I like and there is often a edge of screen showing through.
One side of the protector is 'rough', and this side goes down. In place, the protector looks rather cloudy to me- kind of like the Brandos are. No distortion that I can see, but everything looks just a bit dimmer. I am not sure if it is better, worse, or the same as a Brando, but I feel like I have to boost the brightness setting up a pinch to compensate.
It has a nicely smooth, silky glide to the screen when I use my Chameleon stylus, and it is a little 'grabby' with the 'pen tip stylus' from Fellowes.
Now- to see how it holds up over time!
