I buyed 15 pieces from China shipped (cheaper with 3 x 5). I think they costed me about half a USD. You can just see it on the screen if you look very good. You may notice the edges of the protector. But the colors of the screen and quality is just the same, i cannot see any difference. Before this, I used another protector for 1 USD. The problem was:
1. Production fault. A big square cutted in the middle of the protector. It should have been on the other layer, that actually is garbage.
2. "Wadda heck happened to your screen?!"
3. Colors were absorbed buy the plastic and so was some of the brightness.
But this new one, half the price, is just NEAT!
