Expert Shield Screen Protector review

on Thursday, July 10th, 2014

I have a Fujifilm X-M1 camera that I purchased not too long ago. I thoroughly enjoy using this camera and intend to take good care of it. I had been thinking about purchasing a screen protector for the LCD screen to protect it from scratches, especially when I wear the camera around my neck andRead More…


Rhino Shield is tougher than a Gorilla

on Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

The Gorilla Glass screens on iPhones are tough, but they aren’t invincible, so many people like to add a layer of protection to the screens.  Many screen protectors are designed to protect more against scratching than impacts, but the Rhino Shield MK2 has a “shock-damping layer is able to take at least 5 times theRead More…

Protect your mobile device’s display with glass

on Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Remember in the old days when you had to walk barefoot 5 miles to school in the winter and all you had to protect your smartphone’s display was a junky flimsy plastic screen protector with bubbles under it? Those days are gone forever my friends. Today people are moving to glass screen protectors, which areRead More…


Spigen GLAS.tR Tempered Glass Screen Protector for the iPhone 5 review

on Saturday, March 9th, 2013

I remember back in the day when the Palm V was the Cadillac of PDAs and the only worthy screen protectors were from Brando. Like PDAs, screen protectors have evolved as well, from those ‘one shot to apply’ pieces of thin plastic with adhesive on one side to specially engineered multi-layered films applied with liquid.Read More…


ZAGG invisibleSHIELD EXTREME for the iPhone 5 review

on Thursday, December 20th, 2012

I have considered ZAGG invisibleSHIELDs one of the Cadillac protective films on the market for sometime. A majority of my tech-gear has ZAGG‘s military grade films protecting them from what life’s hard knocks throw at them. As their products have evolved and improved, I have reviewed many of them, so much so I thought IRead More…


XtremeGuard Screen Protector review

on Saturday, November 17th, 2012

I am a huge advocate for using screen protection on tech-gear. I cannot remember the last time I did not use one on any of my devices, from my MacBook Air to my Suunto Elemental Terra watch.  Dorky as it sounds, when a good deal on protectors hits the Net, I buy them for friendsRead More…

Phantasm Tempered Glass Screen Protector For Asus Galaxy Nexus 7

on Sunday, September 30th, 2012
Posted in: Android related, News

We tend to cover quite a few screen protectors for various devices here on The Gadgeteer, however most of them are made of some sort of  soft and flexible PET film.  The biggest issue is that as your screen size gets bigger, in my experience, the harder it is to get these films onto your screen cleanlyRead More…

XO Skins Screen Protector

XO Skins Screen Protectors Review

By: Mark Adkins
on Saturday, August 18th, 2012
Posted in: Cases, Covers, Gear, Reviews

There sometimes seems to be a war or an evolutionary struggle between device screens and screen protector makers. Back in the early days of Palm PDA’s, the screens were rather soft and you used a plastic stylus to write on them. They scratched easily so most of us used and recommended screen protectors. Store bought, home-made,Read More…


Wrapsol Ultra Screen Protector for iPad 2 and New iPad Review

on Friday, April 20th, 2012

I don’t normally use screen protectors on my electronics.  Most screen and body protectors require liquid for a smooth application, and the application directions warn you to remove the battery and keep the device turned off for a couple of days until the liquid has all evaporated.  That’s great, but Apple iPhones and iPads don’tRead More…

Protecting your iPhone’s display from scratches is important to a lot of people. As a result, there are a wide variety of screen protector brands on the market.

Crimson Anti-Glare Screen Protector for MacBook Air Review

on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

  Last month I did a review of the Crimson Frame Case for the iPhone 4.

So much so, I wanted to see if their screen protectors for the MacBook AirRead More…


Easyscreen Adds a Pop of Color to iPad 2 Screen Protection

on Friday, December 30th, 2011

Earlier this week I was reading tweets from bratty kids cursing their parents and wishing them dead because they didn’t get a car for Christmas or got the wrong color iPad 2.  Instead of cursing about the iPad 2, add an Easyscreen Screen Protector from MediaDevil.  Not only can you cover up the offending coloredRead More…


Wrapsol Protective Film Review

on Friday, December 10th, 2010

Recently I bought one of Apple’s new 13″ MacBook Airs and resolved myself to use it naked (aka without any protection). Using the MBAir without a case definitely goes against my anal-retentive nature. I have used a case with every MacBook I have ever owned. These cases, while doing a great job of protecting myRead More…

Those of you who try their utmost to keep their electronics in nice/pristine/perfect
condition should consider a LappyMat
screen protector
for your laptop. They are designed to protect your laptop
screen from the keyboard while traveling. I grant you most laptop manufactures
engineer their laptops to avoid the keyboard touching or scratching the screen,
but things happen. The LappyMats are a reasonably priced accessory designed
to reduce that risk.

Power Support Crystal Film for the 17″ Macbook Pro

on Thursday, August 2nd, 2007
Posted in: Laptops and Gear

Last weekend I went a bit out of control and purchased a 17″ Macbook Pro replacing my three year old 15″ Powerbook. The screen of my old Powerbook has been somewhat marred by the iSkin keyboard cover I have used since day one. The marks on the screen are only noticeable when the screen is off, so I decided not to use an iSkin again. Having learned my lesson, I wanted true screen protection for the incredibly vivid screen. A few months ago MacWorld mentioned Power Support as having one of the best screen protectors out there. So, the day I bought my laptop I ordered Power Support’s Crystal Film for the 17" Macbook Pro.
