    Should have known better. Trying to save a buck I bought some inexpensive screen protectors on ebay. Got them the other day and they are total junk. Looks like they were cut by hand. The area around the ffc is so jacked up there is no way they will ever lay flat. I got six with the purchase and got it on right the first time.

    This is the results. Absolute crap. All six are the same way. Not even gonna bother with a return or attempt another one.

    BTW the seller on ebay is xtreme_guard

    Was always skeptical about that brand. Just like with anything, "you get what you pay for".

    I have actually bought some budget screen protectors in the past and they went on and worked just fine. In this case it is you get what you pay for.

    Just a little follow-up. I filed a refund claim with ebay and my money was refunded within a few hours. No questions asked. No request to return. I guess they realize they are selling junk and just assume most people will not bother asking for a refund.

    I had the exact opposite happen to me one time. I paid a good amount for a nice screen protector with privacy guard that came with an installation in the mall (should've known better), but it ended up being cut by hand so it didn't cover the entire corner of my tablet and on top of that it had holes in it for whatever reason. What a joke. I returned it the next day and ended up just getting a Zagg Shield and applying it myself.

    Best is subjective. I've used just about every brand and depending on your price range there are quality ones.

    I personally have stuck with TechArmor because their product is great and their customer service is awesome.

    I tried Zagg when I had the Droid 1 and was not a fan. Though I'm sure their products have greatly improved since then.

    It must be because the Turbo is new. Xtreme Guard is usually pretty good.

    I'll cast another vote for TechArmor. I've also used just about every type and brand out there, and TechArmor have consistently been the all-around best.

    Oddly enough, it doesn't look like Tech Armor has released anything for any of Motorola's 2014 devices. They have screen protectors for their 2013 product line, but none for this year. That's really odd considering they release screen protectors for almost every device released in the U.S.
