Invisible Shield – review
During my vacation I’ve tried out the scratch protection film called Invisible Shield for my iPod and my Canon EOS. Here’s a full review of this excellent gadget protection from ShieldZone.
Invisible Shield is a thin, transparent film that you can apply on a wide range of gadgets. Originally the film was developed for the military to protect helicopter rotor blades, so it’s supposed to be extremely tough and it also comes with a lifetime guarantee. Let’s start by checking out what’s inside the package.
Inside the package you can find a small spray bottle, a squeegee, the plastic film and application instructions. The process is really straight forward and I managed to apply the protective film on my iPod in under 5 minutes.
It’s very important that your gadget is clean, so you better start off by removing all fingerprints, dusts and other stains – and don’t forget to wash your hands. I used a simple micro fiber cloth to clean my iPod.
Before you start applying the film on your gadget you shall spray both sides with the ‘Shieldspray’ and then you simply apply the film to your device. It’s quite easy to do since the sticky side can be slided around until it fits perfect.
After applying the film you shall use the squeege to remove any excess moisture and push out eventual air bubbles.
It’s quite hard to see if your gadget is protected with the Invisible Shield since the film is absolutely clear but it does have a slight texture – so in the right angle you see the typical reflexes from the protective film.
I’ve been using the Invisible Shield on both my iPod and my Canon EOS Digital Rebel for over two weeks now, and I’m very impressed by this product from ShieldZone. It does an excellent job and my test gadgets are completely scratch free – so far anyway – and I’ve been using them quite careless but haven’t been able to damage the film at all.
The full body shield for my iPod cost $24.95 and the screen shield for the LCD on Canon EOS Digital Rebel cost $11.95 – and I think they are worth every penny. Highly recommended!
