Top critical review
It might protect my screen, but it isn't very durable or forgiving (UPDATED)

Initial protector: * *
Second protector: * * * * *
Customer service: * * * * *
tl;dr - first protector had a manufacturing fault, second spare protector has been perfect for over a month (closer to 2 months now), customer service was amazing for such a cheap product and I would happily purchase anything of theirs again.

UPDATE 3 (6/11/19): about a month or so ago, the protector cracked straight down the middle whilst firmly affixed. No idea how or why, but I have had a rather expensive custom skin on my console that I'll have to remove in order to replace to screen protector AGAIN. Admittedly this one lasted a while but I can't work out why it happened. I suppose on the plus side there's still no scratches or anything on it so it's doing its job well. Now I just have to decide if I want to wreck my skin, or deal with the line down the third of the screen. Picture of the crack is in the last photo.

UPDATE 2: After contacting the seller about missing out on the refund period, they processed the refund for me (even though I didn't ask)!

UPDATE: The manufacturer contacted me (before this negative review) asking how my experience with the product ws. I showed them the same pictures I posted here and they immediately recommended that I request a refund and sent profuse apologies for what appeared to be a fault on the manufacturing side of things. I am still using the second protector and it has not scratched, moved, or anything like that. It's like it's brand new. I would happily buy these again, and I do believe the company when they say it was most likely a once off fault.
They did NOT contact me because I left a negative review, they honestly wanted to make sure I was happy with my product, which I now am. I would happily buy it again if I ever need to. I cannot stress how good a product this is for the price, especially as it's not that much more expensive than a no-name protector off eBay (and it comes with 2!).
Unfortunately I have been in hospital since they contacted me and recommended the refund process, so I have gone past the 30 day return window but I honestly really don't mind. Again - they were a reasonable price for two protectors, and the customer service was great!

Following the YouTube video tutorial made applying the protector easy and I only ended up with one bubble in the top left. Very happy with the product.
Until this afternoon. Pulled it out of the dock to see this MASSIVE scratch/crack down the middle. No idea how it got there. My Switch literally goes from dock to bed, sometimes out in the living room and even then I'm so paranoid about dropping it that I put it in a carry case to prevent any damage that might happen if I slip and drop it on the tiles.
Thankfully it came with 2 protectors so I'm going to apply the second one now and see how that goes. Fingers crossed it lasts more than a few days. The cheapo Chinese plastic screen protector I had before this lasted fine until I swapped to this brand.
Okay, when I removed the broken protector, it was clear that the whole thing had split down the middle, as you can see in the 3rd picture (the diagonal crack was caused by me lifting the protector off too fast).
The only things I can think of for a cause is that the top of the screen was bumped somehow and that made it split down the middle, or perhaps the glass isn't as flexible as the Switch itself and somehow got damaged when removed from the dock or placed in my gooseneck tablet holder to play in bed.
Application of the second protector was easy and I ended up with no bubbles this time.
