The Asus pink stuff is the worst. I've never pulled one off, but came close probably. I like to insure good contact,which has not been an issue on any I've cracked in a few years now. I'll leave these alone after seeing this review, looks like there's good contact:

Killer reviews from Canucks though, graphs are the best by far.
