I heard it is very reflective...true? Any other recommendations for a K2 screen protector that has no glare, but can actually see through (especialy at night with a light) ?

For that you want the Boxwave Anti-Glare. It's 10x better than the Zagg invisibleshield (I had both on my K2 at different times). I only went with the Boxwave Anti-glare on my DX.

I ordered the Invisible Gadget Guard for my Blackberry to see how bad the reflection is on that one (I heard it's a little better than the Zagg Invisible Shield), but I have a sneaky suspicion I'll be paying the stupid high price (product & shipping) for the Boxwave for my K2.

I've just partially installed the invisible shield, and of course, once installed the film over the screen I've not been able to resist making a scratch test (with a nail and a key) to verify that there were no marks, as stated in this promotional video:

but to my unpleasant surprise, all the surface is scratched:





So, what the hell?

That totally sucks! I have been testing my Invisible Shield on my Blackberry and it's OK, but nothing more than a piece of plastic...shiny plastic.

OK, so I know its not supposed to scratch at all, but have you tried wiping it with a damp cloth? Does that help 'heal' the scratch?

Yes, but it's permanently damaged.

From the customer service:

Quote:
Although the invisibleSHIELD is scratch proof, it isn't indestructible. If hit with enough force, it will indeed scratch. This is why we are happy to offer you a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee on your invisibleSHIELD purchases.
I did not use a drill, xD, only applied a moderate force with a nail and a key. Did they see/trust their own promotional video? And now, if I want a replacement, I'd have to pay for shipping to spain again (and double; for returning the scratched and for delivering the new one - fantastic deal, hehe.)

Also, the plastic doesn't fit very well, and there were no need to make 4 cuts for covering the front side because the joints are highly visible (you can see it in the prior image at the top right corner).

In short, a bad experience.
