XtremeMac Tuffshield iPad Screen Protection Film Review

Over the last week or so, I have been writing a bunch of reviews of different cases that XtremeMac has unveiled for the iPad. The thing that all of those cases have had in common is that they offer no protection for the screen from scratches. Today I am going to look at the XtremeMac Tuffshield. This screen protection film prevents scratches on the iPad screen and reduces glare. Read on for all of the details.

Specifications

The XtremeMac Tuffshield film is a film that adheres to the screen of the iPad using static cling. The film has a matte finish to help reduce glare and blocks none of the iPad screen functions. The film is available for $24.99 and comes with a cleaning cloth.

In Use

I have a screen protector film on my iPad right now from invisibleSHIELD that sticks to the iPad like a sticker. That film is a bit of a challenge to install thanks to the fact that you need liquid to do the install and once you put the film on it can’t be repositioned. The XtremeMac Tuffshield is a different material altogether.

This screen protection film is very thick almost like a sheet of plastic. It doesn’t use adhesive to stick to your iPad screen it simply applies with static cling. That means that you need no liquid for the install and the film can be removed and installed as many times as you want. The catch is that the static cling films tend to come loose at various points making bubbles under the film that you can't remove.

Those bubbles are irritating. Another nice feature of the XtremeMac Tuffshield is that the film has an anti-glare matte finish. That means that the glare when you are looking at the glossy iPad screen is reduced making viewing the screen in direct sunlight easier on the eyes. Once the film is installed, it doesn’t affect the use of the touchscreen at all. You can use all the controls and touch input is just as accurate with the XtremeMac Tuffshield installed as it is without the film.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Removable
  • Matte finish

Cons

  • Prone to bubbles
 

Conclusion

The XtremeMac Tuffshield is an easy to install film that can be removed if desired. The big downside is that it can be very hard to remove all the bubbles from under the film.
