Wrapsol vs Invisible Shield (protection skins)

Just found some comparison data across different sources online between WrapSol and Invisible Shield:

Wrapsol:
$29 includes full body and screen protection + free international shipping
high quality micro-fibre cloth
thicker plastic squeegee
wet application for easier allignment (spray on wrapsol skin)
thinner than Invisible Shield
screen protector may add glare
non textured
Packaging uses recycled material

Invisible Shield/Zagg:
$25 Full body protection, screen protection not included + no free international shipping
thicker material than Wrapsol
crappy micro fibre cloth typically, ones that comes with most no name screen protector packages
wet application (spray on fingers only)
textured (orange peel like texture)
reports of cracking on bent surfaces after some time (this probably won't apply to PRS600 since unlike the iPhone, it doesn't have any bent surfaces)
reports of color change after several months
numerous reports of installation difficulty

Starting to have second thoughts regarding my Zagg purchase. It's still on route. If I knew I think I might have chose Wrapsol.

I bought the Lexard Anti-Glare screen protector and plan to combo it with the Invisible shield once that arrives.

I use skins from decalgirl.com, they're pretty . I saw a youtube videa of someone putting one of the 2 above on something and I still like decalgirl better. Their skins are only $15, they're easy to apply and they last forever.

check out www.bestskinsever.com as well. they are far cheaper than zagg. their customer service is also very responsive. if you need custom cut skins they will generally make them up for you.

can anyone submit their order successfully at wrapsol? After i press submit, a message briefly displays "order processing" beside the submit button, and then disappears. But nothing happens. The whole submit page remains, no order confirmation or anything.

EDIT: turns out it was a billing address / shipping address consistency issue

zagg's stuff is the bomb. But, you have to put it on very carefully... or it will peel off. Luckily we have a zagg store that does installs not to far away. I thought the $10 was well worth it.

My 300 has been Wrapsol'd since November last year and it's still very securely on, no peeling/gooey corners yet. I love their lifetime guarantee, you only have to pay for shipping and their shipping rates are very reasonable.

Have never used a skin and have been using PDAs for over 10 years without a problem and I don't baby my machine either.

What I am really looking for (for my Sony 900) is a clear protective cover for the touch screen. One that does not add glare of obscure text. Does not sound like either one of these is the answer?
