    Well I have a put on a few InvisibleShields and most have turned out OK. So I have some experience with these kinds of skins. Just received by BSE today and so far I have installed the front protector. I did as I always have, give the iPod screen a decent spray, spray the sticky side of the BSE and then get the top wet for the squeegee. The problem started when I placed the protector down, even though it was super wet on both sides I had a hard time sliding it into perfection place. I had to keep lifting the skin up and trying to place it down perfectly, using the home button and the front camera as my guide. I eventually got it pretty perfect, squeegeed all the water out as best I could, but it appears there are areas with really teeny tiny bubbles, or moisture. Hard to tell, but from my experience, these never go away no matter how long it sits. I am hoping I am wrong, but if not, the perfectionist in me will be kind of pissed off. I sure hope I am wrong....

    My only saving grace is I also have a IS coming. I ordered it first but since it was taking forever I went ahead and ordered a BSE. I was going to cancel, but I guess I Will keep it and possibly try installing that and hopefully having better luck.

    These things work great and look great.. WHEN installed perfectly.

    Grr!

    ive put invisibleshields on before.

    the bubbles are fine. after it dries, you can still squeegy out the bubbles. I had several on my sister's ipod touch. but it eventually worked itself out.

    At least you didn't get tiny specks of dust under it. Damn those flying particles.

    The back does not look bad, its aligned well, but the left side sits up higher than the right, so I have a little of the BSE sticking up. Nothing major, but you can notice. Too late to move it. As much as I love these things, they are SO frustrating if you don't get it on right. You basically have one chance.
