I've been using these since 2005. Last year I dropped my D200 about 3 feet smashing the LCD on a rock. It shattered the GGS screen but after removing the broken pieces, there was no damage to the LCD screen and the camera was fine. I had to remove the top LCD screen on my D700 because it had developed a haze underneath. I guess it wasn't sealed well. Dave Jolley

I'd love to try one of these, but I'm concerned about sealing as well. The plastic cover already left a few tiny pits on the LCD screen. Afraid that those spots will create air-pockets or bubbles. Any experience applying these to an already imperfect screen?
Don, I noticed a couple of weeks ago my lcd had a couple of small pits in it. Got the GGS II (adhesive version) yesterday and installed this morning. No pockets or bubbles at all. Like alot of others I wish I had gotten one sooner.
Yep, I bought it too. Put 'em on and forgot about them. LOL
They come from China and take a couple, three weeks to arrive.
Of course, that is better than the 88mm holesaw I bought from China. After two months, I complained and they sent a second. Another two months and it arrived. Three weeks later the second holesaw arrived. LOL I had already drilled the four holes I needed to have. so now I have two.
I got mine though UK Amazon. Love them. The rear LCD one is so much better than the supplied plastic - mine was so scratched(even though I carry the camera in a bag) that it was getting hard to see the display properly. The top one is a nice extra.
Only had them for a while - mine are the 'stick-on' type and so far seem to be pretty solid. Still keeping the factory one in my bag though, just in case...
This was one of the first things I bought as soon as I took delivery of my D7000. GGS had not yet released the D7000 protectors yet when I bought mine. I bought the 3 piece set for the D90, and all three pieces fit perfectly. I got the LCD screen, top screen, and eyepiece cover.
Finally installed the GGS protector on my D7000. Very slick! I was expecting something uglier and bulkier. Installed very nicely and looks great. I wasn't going to bother with the protector for the top-mounted LCD screen but installed that too. The material seems hard and resilient so one can only assume the screen is more protected, perhaps much more so. The adhesive ring goes all around the periphery so I presume dirt and dust will not get in between the protector and the screen. Highly recommended.
Two installation tips:
- As they say in the instructions, turn on the display when mounting the protector. This helps with alignment.
- Unlike the instructions, I removed the front shipping film from the protector while mounting it. This made it easier to align it as I could better see the edge.
