Boxwave anti-glare screen protector

I have always used boxwave crystal screen protectors for my PDAs and love them, however the one I ordered for my Kindle makes the screen too shiny.

Has anyone tried the boxwave anti-glare screen protector on a Kindle? Does it change the screen at all?

Thanks in advance.

as there is so little glare on the Kindle screen I've figured why mess with it?

I have it. . . I think it looks great. Similar matte-ness to the actual screen. IMO, you can't tell it's there unless you look closely and see the edges of the protector.

Just be careful, slow and patient when you apply it (but you already know that ).

I use the Boxwave screen protector to keep dirt & scratches off the screen, not to decrease glare. I have not been able to tell much difference in reading with or without the screen. Since it does what I want, keeps the screen from getting scratched or dirty, and doesn't really alter my ability to read the kindle, I like it.

Thanks cyberbiker. I love boxwave, but the crystal just didn't work. I'm going to go ahead an order the antiglare.
