It doesn't feel like it will peel but the edges are just a little rough. I don't find it to be a big deal and now that I've had it on for a day I've come to really, really like it. Feels solid and is very "grippy".

I find the tab quite uncomfortable to hold for a long while because of those rather nasty edges...
Thanks.
It doesn't cover the sharp sides around the bezel, doesn't quite reach around far enough.

Do they sell the skin for the dock alone. I already have a zagg shield for the tablet.

They do, link is in the review but here it is again: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ZPPDFG/

Right now you can only buy them separately. I have the TF201 dock, not sure if the TF700 will be any different size wise once it's released (doubt it).

I just ordered this based on your review, thanks, though shipping could take a while. How is the bundled screen protector? I had skinomi on my atrix, and was impressed, but that wasn't a high res screen, so any blur was unnoticeable. Is it a good clear cover, or does brightness and clarity take a hit? Thanks

I just ordered a tf201 skinomi dock skin in clear for my tf700 dock on ebay. Skinomi sells them on ebay $16. Anybody have a Zagg screen saver and a dock. How does the Zagg fit? Does it look like it will peel off the Zagg over time. I have the Zagg here waiting for my replacement to arrive and wondering if I should cut a section out where the dock's padding touches the screen. The last thing I want is for the cushions to peel off.

update
I installed the tf201 dock skinomi cover and it fit fine. Its a pain in the neck to get it right though. seems thinner then the Zagg.

I installed the brushed steel one today on my TF700 and it looks stunning (it even have textured feel to it). The installation was painless and took only few minutes. I have not yet installed it on the dock (dock is still sealed) but from the various cutouts, it look like it will be trickier to install than the tablet.

On the other hand, I did not like the screen protector that came with it. It was pain to align correctly and even after taking out all water from underneath, it still has a lot of water streaks. According to the instructions, they are supposed to go away after couple of days so I will wait and see. My recent experience with another wet application screen protector was ArmourSuit for Nexus 7 and it was a breeze to install and it was completely clear within few minutes.

Installed the dock screen yesterday and I still have micro bubbles. Not as much as I had yesterday but still have them non the less. No biggie. Its definitely attaches alot quicker than Zagg. I tell you what, I'm happy I don't have to do it again lol.

The dock is actually easier. The part I found hard was the small parts of the tablet skin on the side/top/bottom kept wanting to peel themselves back and it took a lot of holding it in place while drying. The dock I would only use a small amount of the fluid on the main piece and just stick on all the small pieces, it's easy and nothing wants to peel itself back.

I don't plan on using the screen protector, don't like the feel of it and I prefer anti-glare. I used a similar one on my Xoom and it took almost a week for the streaks to clear and even then it didn't look very good. I also read another review that said the screen protector will stick to the skin on the dock and cause bubbles to form. The anti-glare screen protector I use isn't sticky at all and I don't have this issue (Poetic anti-glare screen protectors - 3 pack, $14.95 on Amazon)
