Does anyone have any experience with these? http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=29392276#

Just bought a new Retina MBP and would love to keep the screen pristine for as long as possible. These are cheap — and I'm not even sure they'd fit new models. (The old 15 incher is pictured.) But I see them at the store often so was just wondering if anyone had taken the gamble.

I should probably just buck up and pay for the Moshi.

Screen protectors will damage your screen. Do not use screen protectors.

I... don't think that's true? I know Apple advices against keyboard covers with the Retina, but I haven't heard about screen films causing any damage.

Just imagine what it would do to the antiglare coating and whatever other coatings is on there when you peel it off. You'd have to peel it off some time.
