NextGen Player Review: ZAGG invisibleSHIELD

I don't know about you, but I can't tolerate when the screens on electronic devices get scratched. The cost to replace a screen is not something to easily ignore either. So this got me thinking, what can I do to protect the screens on my shiny new DS and my older PSP? That is when I stumbled across the ZAGG invisibleSHIELD.

The people at ZAGG generously sent us two invisibleSHIELDs for review; a full DS Shield protecting both of the screens and the entire external face of the case and a single piece PSP screen application. Here are the results of our tests.

ZAGG invisibleSHIELD for DS
Type: DS invisibleSHIELD
Despite being the more complex to apply, the end result of the invisibleSHIELD application is a seamlessly hidden and weightless application that provides a scratch proof layer to your DS. I event tried the key scratch test myself with the same amazing results seen in this video.

Total Number of Pieces: 11 (2 Piece screen option available)
Difficulty to apply: 7 / 10
Bubbles: 1 on external lid of DS
Time to apply: 30 minutes

ZAGG invisibleSHIELD for PSP
Type: PSP invisibleSHIELD
Having only one piece to apply definitely made this the easier of the invisibleSHIELD applications. A straightforward and easy to apply process made for a quick and easy job with great results.

Number of Pieces: 1
Difficulty: 4 / 10
Bubbles: 0
Time to apply: 10 minutes

- Weightless, scratch proof protection
- Improved touch feel for DS screens

- Slippery cover immediately after application - grip improved after a week (DS)
- Number of Pieces added to complexity (DS)

NextGen Player recommends the ZAGG invisibleSHIELD for the DS and PSP.
