    First off, please excuse the photo quality. I took this while outside with my camera on the phone.

    I actually learned about this company from MacRumors, but the latest post about the ScreenSavrz was dated from late last year, and I figure I could write a review from a more recent date.

    From the webpage, RadTech says:

    For the most part, that statement is pretty accurate. My screen is definitely cleaner when I use this with my 2012 13" Air. I recall how my PowerBook always had some smudges on the screen, and at least for the PB, since the screen was matte, cleaning the smudges off was much easier and less noticeable compared to glossy screens. I have yet to try actually wiping and cleaning my Air's screen yet, though, and there are definitely no keyboard marks on the screen after closing it.

    Now, there was a post where someone said or asked whether the screen still fully closes even with the ScreenSavrz in the Air. I think this is actually hard to tell. Let me present a couple of photos.

    I feel that there is a very very minute difference between the gaps of both pictures. However, those with sharper eyes may be able to differentiate better.

    Now, this leads to the question of whether the Air will still go to sleep with the ScreenSavrz. I can definitely confirm that yes, the Air will sleep even with the ScreenSavrz in it. One thing of note is that since the ScreenSavrz is in the Air, when you close the lid, there isn't a satisfying metallic...clunk, for lack of a better term. The sound is a lot more muffled, as if you lightly tossed a thin, wide metallic object onto a soft bed.

    Also, this may be a given, but even with the ScreenSavrz in the Air, the Air will still fit into RadTech's Sleevz tight sleeve.

    Having said all that, besides the question of whether the Air fully shuts or not, I will keep using the ScreenSavrz myself.

    If anyone leaves any questions, I'll try to answer to the best of my behalf :)

    How does it clean smudges? So like if I smudged it or theres dust on it, this will clean my screen?

    You can just use it as if it were a cloth and wipe the screen. It seemed to get rid of most smudges. I haven't checked under sunlight though.

    Update:

    I had a matte screen protector applied onto my Air, and the ScreenSavrz still works as advertised.
