    An entirely personal clarification: I didn't think this; I was talked into believing it by the staff at the Apple store.

    Apple don't seem to sell screen protectors (my local Apple store certainly doesn't). That seems to be more some weird kind of propaganda than anything that's based on practicalities.

    Sorry if I implied any finger pointing etc. Was not my intention. :-)

    Just found it odd in the other thread how so many felt the screen protector was a joke or entirely "not required for scratch protection" etc. Obviously just a personal decision for all of us. :-)

    Cheers

    I just wanted to update that I did end up with a replacement ipad2 because of the backlight bleed issues! The scratch was irrelevant because apparently, my bleeding issue was worse than I thought! Apple was great about swapping it out!
    Thanks for all the insight!

    I guess that the bottom line is that you have to decide how you would / will feel when your iPad gets scratched? If you are the sort of person who likes the wabbied look or considers the iPad to be just a tool to be used hard, then OK, go naked... if not get a screen protector.

    It should work.
    I have had Ghost Armor on my iPod touch for almost a year with great results. The slight added friction keeps it from sliding out of my shirt pocket when I bend over. I put it on my iPad 2 as soon as I bought it.

    Every day or two I wipe the front and back with eye glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Looks like the day I bought it.

    Replacement screen

    I had a friend borrow my iPad and they dropped it (by accident) and smashed the screen. I've just had a replacement screen installed on my iPad and a digitiser panel for 200 from iPad Repair London - works great now...

    Was it an iPad 2? My iPad's screen was shattered yesterday. The Apple Store gave me a new iPad. Don't they do that in the UK?

    Apple store will replace your iPad due to accidents as a one time courtesy. I don't have any kind of insurance.

    Not in the UK. I read on another thread somewhere that there are different warranties in different countries, ah to be American.
