Bolto I know this is an old thread, but I got the nushield because of it and wanted to add my experience with it to help other folks out.

I decided to get a screen cover because I was getting direct sunlight on my screen that was washing it out and making it unusable during my commute home. So I ordered the nushield, and it's been working pretty well. It doesn't get rid of all of the glare, but enough to make the screen readable under direct light, so I'm happy with it. On the other hand, it still has a lot of fingerprints all over, but they never bothered me too much in the first place.

The NuShield does not require any additional pressure for the screen to detect touches. I thought when I first applied it that it actually enhanced the screen's touch detection. Whether a real or imagined improvement in sensitivity, it has served me well for over 6 months and shows no sign of wear whatsoever.

Guilty Trace I might get some flak for this, but I saw somewhere in the past that the MFT display actually responds to a stylus. So, I bought a 3-pack of Nintendo DS stylus' (styli?) and I'll be darned, the screen responds to the input. Just like with your finger, you have to apply just a tiny bit of pressure at the tip of the pen to the screen and it will respond. But unlike your finger, it leaves no trace of the contact. I haven't had to wipe my screen in a month. I just have to grab the pen whenever I need to change screens. For everything else, I have Siri's retarded step-sister - Doris.

It GREATLY reduces fingerprints... they still show a little, but much better than the unprotected screen. I highly recommend for anybody with MFT

When I read that I basically thought it was pointless to use it. My MFT already has antiglare to some degree. I wouldn't ever say its glossy and reflects like an Ipad or anything.

BlueIce Cant say I've ever had a problem with fingerprints or glare. Just wipe it down with the cloth and you're good.

Agreed. I have one in the sungless holder w/my shades but also keep a Micro Towel on hand and that is much better because the whole screen is done in a swype or 2.
