2 x HP Touchpad Back Skins from Knightshields $5.00 Shipped!
 
Hey guys, go easy on me, first deal I've posted :bounce:

Knightshields Electronics Armor is running another sale promotion for HP Touchpad protective back-skin two packs. This is the same as the preorder price that I purchased from about a month and a half ago from this thread: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=3279354

Owner sent a special clearance coupon via email to past buyers but it applies for anybody. Normal price is $10 and use coupon code “otftw” without quotes in the shopping cart to apply the $5.00 discount. I got in on the original preorder and was very satisfied with the product. Easy to apply using the video tutorial on the website http://knightshields.com and the quality was great. This is way cheaper than Zagg and others and it adds great protection and grip to the back of the super glossy touchpad.

They ship USPS first class which arrived surprising quickly. No tracking but I guess that would raise the price. If you need protection for your touchpad I would definitely recommend these, they work with the touchstone and with the HP Folio and other cases too if you like to take your touchpad out and use it “naked” at times and doubles protection. The owner responds quickly to emails too.

Product page with photos here: http://knightshields.com/products...hpad-skin/
Here’s the installation tutorial: http://knightshields.com/who-we-a...tructions/
Reviews here: http://knightshields.com/what-our...ers-think/

Not sure how much is in stock but I’d hurry before they run out if you want in on this deal.

Reduced to $5 shipped final sale.
 
Coupon code otftw now gives $5 off to make the price $5 shipped for two.

I love mine, and plenty of other people liked them. my experience was good - did you apply yours wrong?

Great product! Mine's been going almost two months strong. No complaints especially at the price. I should have made this topic when I got the email.

Good quality for really cheap is bad? What planet are you from?

MrThePlague 10-27-2011 08:16 PM

had to login to upvote this. great product and great seller. got mine real quickly, followed the video to install the skin, and it's held up great for 2 months now. i don't understand the hate at all.

I haven't heard of skinetics. Do you mean skinomi?

shantytown989 10-28-2011 11:35 AM

I got em, works good. After 2-3 days all the soap/bubbles were gone. Now it looks good it public without the fingerprints all over the back.

burne201 10-28-2011 01:06 PM

Bought these a few weeks ago, very easy to install, look and feel great. no fingerprint smudges.

Would definitely recommend for the price.

Aogen 10-28-2011 06:10 PM

I like how he still haven't lowered his price after the touchpads are now virtually gone everywhere.

If you're reading this then you better lower it soon bro, because a few weeks more and people will forget about it all together.

your post hints you know the guy or something... i think he offers a pretty fair price, way cheaper than elsewhere...

what's your problem?

$7.50 for 2 skins... it's not like he's making a killing sending them out.. I don't see there being much of a difference in price from my point between now and him selling them without making a profit.

It's a pretty good deal and if you can find a better one then go buy it elsewhere, don't TC all over an honest man trying to make money.

no, i think we're not sitting on a pile of money so i insisted that he lowers the price for everyone.

its always the product and the customer. nobody cares about the seller.

Dryheat360 10-29-2011 01:31 AM

Thanks OP in 4 1 (or two rather). These seem really good. To bad the back of mine already got a scratch :(

if it already has a scratch then its pointless. get a case for it instead.

$7 bucks total. $5 if you use the search feature and search the coupon for tpu case.

wow dude the difference between 7 and 6.50 is multiplied by the amount of touchpad skins he sells for him... people like you suck no offense

Ah okay, I just wanted to be sure. I don't have experience with skinomi's product but at the price and the protective and grippy quality for these I don't think you can go wrong. I'm def happy with them. I thought the corner guards being separate to make installation easier was cool too.

I'd imagine it has something to do with the fact that HP is about to release a bunch more of these for cheap? I don't know if Best Buy's deal (you have to buy a HP PC to get the cheap Touchpad) will be similar among other retailers, but I don't think this is the end of these..

I read half of this and got excited, then I read the half where you have to buy a HP laptop and thought "I would never buy one of those space heaters again". :lol:

It's the most recent thing I've read about HP pushing more of these out. I remember reading a few weeks (?) back that HP was going to find other ways to offer these for cheap again :worship:

freejus 11-02-2011 07:14 PM

Hope so, I want to get one for my mother so she can go crazy trying to figure out the touchscreen keyboard lol.

freejus 11-04-2011 05:29 PM

Got in on one of the touchpad bundles from tigerdirect for the gf so in for some more knightshields for when she takes it out of the case (she is terrible at not destroying electronics).

knightshields 11-07-2011 01:11 PM

Hi everyone, thanks again for your support!

I want to clear these out at cost to focus on some other things. I have about 150 orders left. The coupon code otftw is now good for $5 off making the price for two of our great Touchpad skins only $5 shipped!!!!!

Sorry, I can't go back and adjust earlier orders for this sale price and all sales will be final. I'll be checking in periodically to answer any questions.

Thanks again!

I'm going to have to disagree based on customer reviews. :shake:

knightshields 11-11-2011 02:00 PM

Still 150 left. Happy Veterans Day!

knightshields 11-12-2011 05:31 PM

For those of you whom have emailed asking, sorry but I won't be making screen protectors. People have wildly varying tastes in what makes a good screen protector and I'd prefer happy customers over extra profit.

if you're going to be clearancing these out for "other things" what are you going to do about the warranty?

I'm a business owner, don't you think I'm smart enough to keep extra stock on hand for those who need to recover any type of loss?

But yes, warranty is still applicable. I guess the "as-is" was tongue in cheek.

I bought one from one of your competitors and took it off after a week. It was too grippy for my tastes. Not about to spend $10 trying another that I might not like too. Still have your skin on the back though :D

knightshields 11-16-2011 01:05 AM

Had some people email me saying they couldn't get the coupon to work. Might be a browser thing. Don't worry about the coupon, I've gone the simple route of just changing the cart price to $5.

I've PM'd the threadstarter asking him to change the details. Coupon code otftw is NO LONGER active so don't try to be slick and get the skins for $5 off of $5 haha.

knightshields 11-16-2011 08:09 PM

Last chance, tomorrow is the last day I'll be shipping these and won't be checking back here on SD after tomorrow. Thanks again to those of you who gave our products a chance and were pleasantly surprised.

knightshields 11-25-2011 12:51 PM

For Black Friday I decided to push this sale out through the weekend, then it's over forever. Happy Holidays SD!

knightshields 11-26-2011 06:30 PM

Get 'em while you can!

Ram|bunc|tious 12-01-2011 09:30 AM

Any SDers comment on the quality? Do I assume this works with the Touchstone?
