    Rob Holt | August 23rd, 2021
    I ordered 5 different samples of anti-glare films in hopes of finding a film that would help with the horrible glare we are having in our new home on our 55 inch television. \nThe film samples were easy to apply and to get most of the bubble out but I was hesitant to push very hard on my tv screen hanging on the wall. The film samples were a little more difficult to get off with the tape trick but we got them off. \nI put all 5 of the films on the tv screen and proceeded to watch a dark movie on a bright sunny day. I made sure I looked at all five films from different angles and surprisingly, the most anti-glare film was not the best for my situation. I ended up ordering the middle of the road anti-glare film but used my coupon to recoup the cost of the film sample pack. \nI need to do another review for that product and installation.
    Note From Store Owner: Rob, we are so happy that you got some samples to try out first. It's true that having them will help you determine the best solution for you. Thanks for your review - we look forward to hearing how the 50% MXT helps your TV!

    Got it fast and a coupon to recoup my cost if I purchased, my only issue was the samples were so small it was difficult to decide if they helped or not. Plus even with the small sample it was hard to remove all the air bubbles
    Note From Store Owner: Hello, Patrick. We are happy that you found us and decided to give some samples a try. We do have 3 sizes of samples that all include a $5 coupon for a future purchase. We'd love to help you find a film type that works for you!

    Maia | March 4th, 2021
    Found this company when I started having serious issues with the pre-installed screen protector on my display tablet, and after reading up on the types of protective films PhotoDon offers, I was pretty sure about which one would fit my needs best (9HO). Trying it out in person eased even the small doubts I had about it; I knew I wanted maximum protection for the tablet, but I wasn't sure how the stylus would glide over it and whether it'd decrease pressure sensitivity and all that junk. The great news is that it has the same feel that I'm used to, the image quality is still perfect, and I won't have to worry about anything scratching the screen.\nThe sample pack itself came in a neat envelope and it had everything you could possibly need to install a 2x3 film. Each sample was marked accordingly so you know which one you're trying out, etc etc. The $5 coupon is appreciated too.\n\nIn summary, the peace of mind I got from this is 100% worth getting a sample pack before committing to a bigger purchase.
    Note From Store Owner: Thank you for trying a sample pack so that you can try out the film types, Maia! We encourage folks to do this in order to get a hands-on opportunity to determine the best choice. We appreciate that this worked for you and look forward to your future order.

    The sample pack was excellent and helped me decide which type of film to purchase. It contained EVERYTHING a person would want to know, and allow them to "try it out" before purchasing their film. Well worth the minimal cost, and the $5 coupon was great!
    Note From Store Owner: We're glad you find this helpful, Tom.

    Sample pack shipped in a timely manner and was very helpful in deciding which screen protector to get for my laptop. Each protector had a different feel when using a stylus, so having a sample of 5 made the decision much easier!
    Note From Store Owner: Way to go, Andrew! We appreciate your taking the time to figure out which film works best for you.

    Glad I ordered the sample pack, I didn't like the sample of the style I would have ordered. It includes a coupon for the $5.00 cost towards the purchase of screen saver. No brainier. Nice that it included installation kit.
    Note From Store Owner: We're glad you found the protector you like!

    Good produts. The samples helped me a lot for choosing my screen protector type. They even sent the samples in Canada since it is not available here. I received them quite quickly and I have made my choice. Very good customer service and fast delivery.

    Got a sample pack... quickly was able to see the difference between types of films. Was able to identify a film that will help us a lot with our ChLCD BluBoards.
    Note From Store Owner: Great, Mark! We're happy the samples were helpful to you.
