    Got my Skinomi!!!

    Got my skinomi today! I ordered it several weeks ago, and the initial one came really fast, but was the wrong one--they sent me the silver carbon fiber and I ordered the dark woodgrain. I contacted customer service, who got back to me literally within minutes with an apology, sent out the correct one, and told me to keep the silver one on them. That's what I call customer service!

    Anyway, the wood grain one arrived today and I began putting it on over my lunch break. First thoughts: wow, it really does look like wood grain. Very nice.

    I've had no issues with bubbles that I couldn't guide out with the card so far; it's gone on pretty easy, even the thin pieces. The use of a hair dryer as recommended on the instructions has been 100% necessary, but works like a charm.

    Down side: it's not perfectly sized. I would have to stretch it to make it match up 100% perfectly, and that would cause it to be misshapen. What this means in the end is that some silver will show through at the seams where it doesn't completely cover. I'm not sure how that'll look when all is said and done. We shall see. My suspicion is that it'll, well, look like an applique, albeit a nice one.

    I'll see what it looks like when it's all done, but so far I'm leaning towards a 3.5/4 out of 5 rating for them.

    I do apologize for the quality. Though my phone has a high end camera, I'm not as steady or good a photographer using it as I am using the TF201, and obviously I couldn't use that to take pictures of itself...

    ....that is a perfectly valid excuse to by a 2nd tablet, perhaps another colour or model?
    Goodjob on the application though, they can be friggy.

    You know, I was really surprised at how easy it was to apply. All told it took me less than an hour to do it, and I did the dry application. No issues with bubbles or anything. I made sure, as suggested on the skinomi site, to have a hair drier handy, and that was invaluable in shaping the corners and gluing down the edges.

    We'll see how well it holds up. As of now I'm giving it 4.5 out of 5--4 out of 5 for the application itself--these could be cut and sized a bit more exactly, but that's about my only real issue--and up it by a half star for the stellar customer service. I would readily recommend one of these skins to anyone who is considering it.

    Hah. My wife would shoot me in the face if I spent another $500 to $800 on a second tablet.
