    The difference is how they are installed. One requires a spray solution to be used, the other can be installed dry. Neither one last longer, they should both last the same.

    NOTE: Wet installations usually end with LESS air bubbles. But they take a lot longer to apply, you can't use your iPod for about an hour when letting it dry. Some say 24 hours

    my ipod touch is tough. My ipod touch was on the entire time. When applying i turned it on to make sure everything was aligned. I even used it after the skin dried enough to not move. Yes that probably wasnt the best idea even though the device is working fine 2 days after.

    Right- I realize the difference in how they are installed, but what are the performance differences?

    Wet installations for adhesive shields are best

    When you apply adhesive shields dry, they can stick on to surfaces and the screen u aligned, and you'll have to pull it hard to come off making it hard to perfectly align it. Wet installation allows for perfect aligning, and it's very easy for bubbles to push over. It does take longer depending on the amount of solution you used, for me it took about 10 minutes till I used it. It was perfect

    I'd go with the wet installation. I recently reviewed a skin for Skinomi on here, and it was very easy to install, and I had no air bubbles after a night of drying.
