I've never bought anything from these guys before but i am getting extremely desperate for some very good quality, safe and reliable 3DS XL screen protectors before i go ahead and open up my new 3DS XL that i just bought over the weekend.

It says they won't leave any residue when removing them and that they are reusable as well. my main concern about using screen protectors not licensed by Nintendo themselves is the fact that i worry that unlicensed screen protectors might damage the screen over time, like permanent discoloration issues to the screens and things of that nature.

Are all screen protectors, reguardless of them being officially licensed by Nintendo or not, essentially the same quality at the end of day or should i watch out and be cautious of the kind i buy?. this x5 pack seems like a great deal @ $8+.

I was also thinking about the PSVita screen protector since it's for a 5" screen but i don't feel like cutting or shaping it just to try and make it fit, since the edge's of the glossy boarder strip that surround the XL screen are."rounded" and not perfectly rectangular like Vita's.

Can't find the Hori brand anywhere either, including Amazon, Best Buy, Target and others.

So again has anybody bought these for their 3DS XL and are they good or not?. thanks! :).

Hori is over priced, and anything that doesnt use actual glue is fine.

^I find Hori relatively cheap, but maybe that's just me.

As long as they don't use adhesive go for it.

After watching this i'm having high hopes for these eForCity 3DS XL screen protectors. they seem great! :). i'll apply the eForCity top screen protector on the top screen and just use my new officially licensed by Nintendo DSi XL screen protector from the Power A DSi XL "Clean & Protect" kit that i got last summer for $0.99 at Best Buy for the bottom screen since it'll be a perfect fit. i think this is my best bet! :D.
