    I've been looking on Amazon for a screen protector but the ones offered do not seem to get good ratings / no ratings. Where did you get your screen protector from and how are you finding it?

    I think most people with either of these have had pretty good experiences. I have the RPM one that’s made of 3M film and I like it - it reduces fingerprints and isn’t overly glossy.

    I've got the matrix black from Abstract Ocean. It looks phenomenal, can't wait to see it actually installed though.

    I don’t think matrix black vinyl wrap would make a very good screen protector ;)

    I have the Abstract Ocean 5H clear Ultra Hard one installed and love it! Easy install and any small bubbles left disappeared overnight all by themselves. Can’t say enough about the AO customer experience.
    I like it better than the RPM one as it is thicker, less flexible and a ‘dry’ install. RPM’s is clear paint protection films and a ‘wet’ install. Each to their own.

    lol, when glossy was mentioned I thought the conversation changed to centre consoles.

    Yeah, I had already talked myself into doing the wet install route for the centre console wrap with the xpel matte. So when it came to the screen protector it was more of a “why not go all in?” kind of thought process.

    Why do you need one? We’ve had our X for two years and just wipe it off with a screen cloth.

    It’s probably a want more than a need. With no fingerprints I don’t need to wipe it at all. I do like the way it looks a bit more matte with the protector on too.

    The way the screen is positioned on the Model 3, there's a fair bit of reflection under the bright sun, especially with the glass roof.

    And that might well be a good reason. Who knows, I might go that route when our 3 comes.

    Pete has a good install video on the AO website. Pushed the big bubbles out easily. All the remaining marks underneath the protector after install disappeared completely overnight on their own.

    No gaps. Goes right up to the inner edge of the bezel.

    The screen inherently has a slight curve, and the 9H is cut to match.

    That's what I was worried about because it was curved. Had some cheaper screen protectors for phones and some would cut it short to account for that. Better quality screen protectors will go up to the edge and sounds like this one is similar. Thanks!

    It looks like the cheaper Abstract Ocean screen protectors (i.e., not the "9H" ones) DON'T have the curved feature included.

    Thanks for the clarification. Was talking specifically about 9h glass screens.
