I've just ordered one now too as the 25% offer ends tomorrow. Will probably get it end of Feb as it's 10-15 days to ship to UK.

Have yet to receive the screen protector, and based off their website I believe this promo is apart of a pre-order. As soon as I receive it I will let you guys know, and include a review.

I'm not sure it's part of a pre-order because I checked on my order on their website and it's already changed to "shipped". Pretty fast considering I ordered it a few hours ago!

My only real question:
Does the sp go all the way to the edges or is there some gap?

I bought products from Clarivue for years but this last time I bought screens for the HTC DNA. I ended up selling the DNA while the screens were shipping and instead wanted to get Note 2 screens and was even willing to pay all the shipping etc.., but they also wanted me to pay a restocking fee on the DNA screens....even though they had never even been opened!!! The stupid fee along with all the shipping made it easier/cheaper to just order the Note 2 screens and throw the DNA ones away. Needless to say I will never do business with them again and I'd been loyal since my Nexus One days.

It was like 3 or 5 bucks and for a loyal customer of years they wouldn't waive it for me. I would have bought these glass protectors in a heartbeat if not for this...I almost bought them anyway... but stayed strong in the end.

Anyway I hope you guys enjoy them I'm sure they are nice screens. They make nice products but when I needed good customer service it wasn't there.

Any updates/reviews on this. Post seemed to have just stopped. Interested in getting an idea on how the Clarivue HD is working on for whoever has it. Bought the MIME, but I feel like sensitivity was affected when typing. It didn't register the keys all the time. Contacted MIME and they send to send it back for an exchange or refund. Put one of my extra iSmooth sp's back on and I'm happy for now. Just curious about the Clarivue.

Been using mine for around a week and a half now. Seems fine. I think once or twice I might have hit a key and it didn't register but not sure that was down to the protector. Haven't noticed anything else to be honest. Works perfectly for me

I'm pretty pleased with mine - I didn't realize they included a sealed wet-wipe (supposedly anti-static and anti-dust formulated), so I ended up with dust particles after I wiped the bare surface down with a Microfiber cloth and rubbing alcohol. Since I figured I had nothing to lose - as I had an obscene number of dust particles under the glass, I decided to pry it out again and wash it using liquid hand soap and water.

Basically I ended up applying it like a Zagg protector using 99% Alcohol in a spray bottle as a liquid base to a) reduce dust particles and prevent water spots, b) shift the Clairvue into position. I ended up with a pretty decent job - there is only one tiny dust particle - small enough that it isn't visible unless you pull up a white background. There is no air bubble surrounding it and it only showed up a week after the initial application.

My friends who also purchased the same protector applied it successfully without the issues - as they were forewarned by me about the wipe, so I guess the wipe really does help in the installation.

They also included 4 plastic buttons for the home button - to make it easier to press the button down - it came in White, Black, Blue and Grey. The issue with these buttons is that they seem like they're for the S3 and not the Note. It still works but its definitely not the proper shape of the Note II button.

There may be a small loss of sensitivity (maybe 1%?) - but I'm not 100% certain as really hard to tell if its the app or the phone. S-Pen functions fine. The glass is really, really smooth compared to plastic ones - well worth the extra cost. Also resists oils very well - requires fewer wipe downs compared to the plastic ones.

I would definitely buy again - and I'm only including what I went through to apply it since I failed to install it correctly - yet it is recoverable and not all is lost. The adhesive layer is strong enough for some washing. I probably wouldn't pry it out now though as the adhesive has probably cured a little bit. I don't believe it's supposed to be reusable.
