The Clarivue anti-glare protectors were horrible. They came with dust already on the sticky side of the film. At first I thought I missed some dust on the screen when applying the first one so I just tossed it out after seeing loads of bubbles with specks in them. After making absolutely sure there was nothing on the screen, I applied the second. I then spent the next half hour removing dust that was stuck to the sticky side of the protector with a piece of scotch tape. I gave up after a piece of the tape ripped off and stuck to the underside of the protector.
I'm extremely disappointed in this product. Back to the drawing board.

I got a 5 pack from ScreenGuardz when I first got my optimus. At first I thought they were great. Good company, good product. But I found out the reason you get 5 (some companies give 3), is because they WILL lose adhesion after 2-4 weeks and just slide off requiring you to put on a new one. By the 5th one it was getting annoying. So I checked out Zagg and Skinomi along a few others. I went with the Skinomi wet apply with a lifetime guarantee. Yeah it was about $10 but worth every penny. High quality screenguard with impressive packaging and great directions.

I got a package of 5 made by Griffin at wal-mart for under $6, You do have to cut them to size though. Just make sure you get the ones with a very flexiable feel to them (what i mean is you can bend them in half with out cressing). DO NOT get the protectors that have a real plastic feeling and are rigid (meaning if you bent them in half they get a cress). Then the edges would start showing bubbles within a day, looked like crap!
In all for those of you that have used Zagg you know have they feel and flex thats how a good protector should be.
A little trick i use is even on the dry apply ones i still use a little (very little windex) under the protector so that I can move it into position with out have to peel it back off and when i squeege the protector the fluid forces the air out and end up with 0 bubbles and a nice screen protector that you can barly see!

I just got these and would not advise getting them: 3 ANTI-GLARE Screen Protector for LG Optimus S LS670, $4.95 shipped from seller dcmugen88 - 3 ANTI-GLARE Screen Protector for LG Optimus S LS670 | eBay
They don't fit very well (cut 1-2mm too large overall). They also do not have the sensor cutout, if that's important. The matte non-glare material is okay though, but you'll wind up cutting it to fit. I would try the screen protectors mentioned by Cmags in post #107 instead.

I wanted to chime in with my purchase.
I went for the XtremeGuards protector based on another forum. I had a ZAGG for iPhone and I hated how thick it felt.
This one went on easy and I've not noticed any issues with fingers on it. I got the full body wrap, despite the fact I have a silicone case as well (can never be too careful).

I went with the Clarivue Ultra Clear direct from Clarivue for $12.99 (single).
Pros: Installation went fine with no bubbles and clarity is good. Easy to pull off and re-apply.
Cons: Fingerprints seem worse! But I'm not afraid to constantly wipe it now. I also don't like the cutout for the proximity detector because I don't think it's necessary. It is also cut a bit smaller than it should - it doesn't have to be perfect, but I'd prefer less naked screen exposed. It's a bit pricey compared to many other brands I see people mentioning here.
Would I do it again? Yes, but I think I would try the anti-glare unless they found a way to minimize finger streaks.

Zagg's product is a little rubbery feeling, but if you can handle that,, IMHO it is far superior to anything else. (ive tried quite a few) You really need to take your time putting it on,, (I have used on past devices and learned from past mistakes) It is practically industructible, and if applied correctly becomes completely invisible within a day or two (You can see some slight inperfections right after application,, DON'T JUDGE RIGHT THEN! as long as you applied it well and got all the bubbles out, the rest will work itself out over a day or two..
I do wish it was "slicker" (I like swype) but thats the only con as far as Im concerned,, I love my invisibleshield..
