    Just fitted the Moshi ivisor, it is really good, doesn't adhere to screen but only to the bezzle so no bubbles, easily removed, found it better to have screen on home to line up otherwise it is squint when lined up to the outside rim.

    Hi all. I was thinking of getting a screen protector for my ipad 2. I was looking at the PowerSupport Crystal Film for $30 + shipping.

    Some people seem to think it's worth it, but other people have said that they use their ipad 2 a lot and have had no scratches or damage at all.

    Do you think it's worth the $30 investment?

    As I've mentioned in another thread, not having incurred damage in the past is no indicator of what will happen in the future, as accidents are, by definition, unpredictable. On the other hand, $30 is on the high end of pricing for a screen protector - if you are just looking to put a screen to protect the glass, there's lots of lower priced options available.

    There are various kinds of screens for different users. A matte screen, for example, greatly reduces glare and reflection from the glass, which makes it ideal if you use it outdoors a lot. A privacy filter will prevent people sitting beside you from reading your screen. A mirrored screen cover turns your screen into a highly-reflective mirror-like effect when it's off, but allows the display to appear when turned on.

    My iPad 2's screen is nekkid but I do have covers that I keep it in.
    I do have the ummm.... either the Bestskinever or the Zagg shield on my iPhone 4 though since it would likely be more susceptible to scratching.

    I don't want anything of poor quality. I want something that will not negatively effect the display of the screen or the response to touch. I'd also like something that will make it easy to read in sunlight. I don't really care about the privacy factor.

    That's what I got. Poor quality. Need something better, those rip off and replace ones are rubbish!

    I don't know what the difference is between the PowerSupport Anti-Glare and the PowerSupport Crystal Film.

    Are there any down sides to having an anti-glare protector? Does it diminish the color quality or anything?

    Then you'd want to consider a matte protector. I put a matte filter from Brando on my device because I use my iPad outdoors a lot, which removes most of the harsh ambient glare and reflection from naked glass. A great side effect of the matte protector is that it also virtually eliminates smudges and 'squeaks' from fingers, which makes for a smooth tactile experience.

    The downside of a matte protector is that it creates a 'pixellation effect', but to me that's a non-issue (for the Brando at least) because that's exactly how they're designed to reduce glare and reflection, and unless you use the iPad with your eyes two inches from the screen, there's no perceptible degradation in picture quality.

I dont want the whole glossy finish and thats all they have. They said there going to get the carbon fiber one soon so I might be interested in that one since I got the black smart cover.
