Specifications

The Moshi iVisor XT is a clear screen protector that has a black border that goes over the black area on the front of your iPad. The clear section of the Moshi iVisor XT is exactly the size of the iPad screen. The film measures 9.3" x 7.2" and will only fit the original iPad. The film is available now for $30.

In Use

The Moshi iVisor XT I am looking at is clear, you can order the iVisor for the iPad in a matte finish. The benefit of the matte finish is that it will help reduce glare. The downside is that the matte reduces the brightness of the screen to some extent. The clear screen protector I am looking at here is prone to more glare, but let's all the light and brightness of the iPad screen shine through.

The big thing here is the easy application of the Moshi iVisor XT. You need no liquid of any sort of the install. All you need to do is clean the screen of your iPad and them peel the backing off the Moshi iVisor XT. Once the backing is off you can then align the Moshi iVisor XT and stick it down.

I got mine on a bit crooked the first time and had some crumbs under it. The good thing about this film is that the design allows you to remove it as many times as you want to get the position perfect. The Moshi iVisor XT also goes on with no air bubbles.

I have used films in the past on my iPad that needed liquid for the install and getting all of the air bubbles and liquid out from under the film is not easy to do. Getting liquid of any sort on the screen of my iPad was also something I was never comfortable with either.

With the film installed, I noted no reduction in brightness of the iPad screen when watching video. I have had reduction in brightness when using matte finished protection films though. You can peel the Moshi iVisor XT off your tablet and clean the film and the tablet screen when you want and simply reapply the film.

The film also stays stuck to the iPad screen well. I hate the films that start to peel away and leave bubbles all over the screen after a day or so. The Moshi iVisor XT has stayed stick done with no issues for more than a week now.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Clear
  • Removable

Cons

  • Expensive
 

Conclusion

The only thing I could say is bad about the Moshi iVisor XT is that it costs $30 for a piece to cover the screen. Other than the cost the Moshi iVisor XT does exactly what it promises and is easy to install.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
