Quality/Usability : I'm always cautious and always "baby" my gear. Some people aren't and some people are. I actually purchased a GGS III LCD Screen Protector for my Nikon D7000 but never had a chance to review it because I ended up selling my D7000 with the GGS included. But now that I went and purchased a Canon EOS 5D Mark III, I also went and got a GGS screen protector for my new toy.

Why would I buy the GGS when Nikon cameras usually come with its own screen protector? Although those screen protectors protect the screen, its not scratch resistant. After awhile, it becomes filled with scratches and its hard to see the display. With other cameras, some may not include a screen protector such as Canon. Granted, the screen may be made of some type of scratch resistant glass but you can never be too cautious. Better to be safe than sorry. It also helps with resale value. Buyers love mint condition items. It shows how careful you are with your gear and how well you maintain them.

The cheaper version of the GGS is just a piece of glass that is applied to the top of the screen with sticky residue. It also includes a screen protector for the top LCD display. The new GGS is an all-in-one piece and slides over the viewfinder and covers the LCD display. Unfortunately, it does not come with a screen protector for the top LCD. It would be nice to include one for those who would like to apply one.

Both the LCD and viewfinder screen are crystal clear. Since its crystal clear, it can give off a bit of a glare but not to the point where you're unable to view the screen. Underneath the screen is felt lining to prevent any dust or particles getting underneath the GGS protector. But once in a while, you'll get a few sneaky ones getting underneath. If you do get some, just lift up the protector, blow/wipe off the particles and reinsert the protector. The felt lining also prevents scratches to the screen.

For the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the GGS screen protector covers part of the blue printer icon at the top left and a little bit of the Canon logo at the bottom. So as long it does not get in the way of me pressing buttons, that is fine with me. There was also no wiggling once it's placed on. If there is any, it's minimal.

Conclusion : Overall, the GGS III DSLR Glass LCD Screen Protector is a great affordable accessory. Some will hate it, some will love it. But if you treasure your gear and resale value, you may want to look into this. Fitment is great, covers the screen perfectly and blends in well with the camera. It doesn't get in the way of any of the buttons or dials on the back of the camera.

B&H Photo and Adorama carries the same type of product but its under the Vello and Flash Point brand, respectively.
