The downside, scratches easy and tends to be expensive.
The other guy is right, put the money into an alarm system.

The one of the most important thing with making windows stronger is the frame!!! You can have extremely strong windows but unless the frame is designed to transfer the loading from the window to the frame and hold it in place incase of a break it will just deflect in. So tint will hold the glass together but the broken glass will just fall in attached to the film. Otherwise use poly or polycomposit and make it thick and leave your windows up.

... The window was pried out and was laying (mostly still in one piece) where my truck was left parked. ...
Man that sucks. Ya, that what I am talking about. You will need to add a way for the top of the glass to "lock" in to the frame and strengthen the sides. But this gets a little out of control as a project because you have to redesign the weather stripping and shape of the glass. Basically redesigning that whole part of the door.
And don't forget if you do make it very hard to break in you also are making it very hard to get out in case of a wreck. Seconds count when the paramedics need to get to you.

Yes it stops burglars. I haven't used shattergard security film. I have used Lux window films "shatterproof security window film" .Security Window Films by LUX Window Films are created to hold broken glass together to severely restrict entry. This adhesive quality also prevents glass shards from injuring anyone inside.
