Mines protected with a screen protecter. From experience one screen protector is just as good as the next. I purchased the cheapest ones from amazon as I have done with iPhones in the past. Never had scratches or anything on any of my previous devices.
As with cases, I go for something with a snug fit, that protects the whole device. iPhone has had so many cases that I try out and my ipad had a leather case ( goji) where you slide the device in and secure with a Velcro tab underneath and the case has a cover that goes over the screen also and secures with an elastic strap.
So far it seems safe, tbh my devices are very much protected and I'm proper careful as I have respect for them lol

Would be WAY TOO scared to keep the iPad naked without protection.
Got the iPad 2 weeks ago and the first purchase was a 360 swivel case cause wifey loves watching shows/movies on there...
Gotta pick up a Zagg for the screen. Just debating whether to get the full body, screen-only or the Smudge-free version.
(First post.) :D
Not sure what Zagg is ( will google it when logged off ) but it sounds great if it keeps the screen clean from greasy finger marks would probably save me a fortune in screen wipes! Think I'm going to get Pages word processing app as I went to buy an extra charger yesterday and was talking to the store Geeky Guy he has Page installed and said he has no problem with it although it is quite basic - sounds like a perfect match for me :o
I learned that screen protectors, while doing its job fairly well, deserves some attention to details.
In my experience, I had bubble issues. It seems whenever there is a spec of a dust, a bubble will form right on top of it.
You can't get rid of the bubble without getting rid of the dust. But I'm living with the dust because I don't want to ruin the perfect alignment that I got going. The next time I will be more carefully wiping down the screen.
I like the case I got on both the iPad 2 and iPad mini. It's the Infiniappstand, which I must say is a bit pricey.
I agree. I had an original iPad until I brought iPad 3 some time ago. I never used a screen protector, never needed it. Until recently I never used a case for either tablet either. Maybe I have lucky. But I use my iPad daily for work and home.

How devastating. I did the same thing to my iPhone so I know how you feel. I would think by now a person could find someone to replace the screens. Even a " jail breaker ".... worth a try. It's toast anyway.

I don't use a screen protector and never will. I hate the air bubbles.
I use the Otterbox with built in screen protector.
I have just got a new leather cover, I have already used Silicon one.
