    I have heard that the first batch of the Zagg Invisibleshields for the iPad 2 are defective and not fitting properly. Is this true and does anyone know when this issue will be corrected? I was hoping to stop by my local mall and have them installed but looks like I may have to hold off for now.

    The first batch are already recalled out of stores and the new shipments are fine. iPad 1 shield can also be used and retrofitted

    It looks like on the website, the back piece does not fit the 3g version.

    Display Screen Protectors

    With the tough, optical grade, Gorilla Glass protecting the LCD screen ... why is it necessary to add another layer of visual diffusing material, that degrades the screen? Costs quite a bit ... if it isn't installed correctly, it is a nightmare.

    So why bother? We both know why the big electronic chains push, push,push to sell 'em.

    I agree, I have had my Ipad for about 8 months with no screen cover. Why would I want to cover it up with a military grade film? IPAD and IPhone screens are awesome without it. Just be careful when using.

    Ummm...most with the new Ipad2 Apple cover want the back.....not the front....since the cover provides no protection for the back.

    Just sayin' ;)

    Same here. I've been cleaning my iPad screen about 5 times every day for 10 months. I use a nice big soft microfiber cloth that sucks up finger prints almost instantly. The screen is still perfect. Short of dropping the iPad on concrete, you would pretty much have to dig a spike into the screen to cause a scratch.

    I can understand covering the screen when it's being carried around, but why stick plastic on top of an alreadiy indistructable optically gorgeous display?

    Zagg InvisiShield for iPad 2

    I purchased the Zagg Invisishield for the iPad 2 at Best Buy a few days ago and had them install it for me. It is true, it does not fit properly - the hole for the front-facing camera is cut too high on the Zagg. The HOME button is also cut too low on the Zagg, at least in the original batch.

    I kept the one I got, since it was already installed, and Best Buy took my number and will call me when the next batch comes in. They will give me a new one with free installation. For right now, however, my screen is protected and it the Zagg significantly cuts down on fingerprints. I can't really see any distortion in the screen by using this product.

    I am surprised that Zagg didn't check the first batch for quality control and accurate fit. Somebody dropped the ball there.

    My .02¢..

    Has anyone received a replacement that fits? Zagg has great customer service and they have been very help to me in the past. I still would recommend their products 100%.

    I received a replacement screen in the mail yesterday.. It came in a retail package. Not sure I'll install it since I used the invisible shield from my 1st-gen iPad. It covers the camera but so what, it's clear :)

    This may be a dumb question but is it possible to get just the back cover? As i have seen on the thread I also agree that I do not think there is any need for a cover over the gorilla glass. If something is strong enough to scratch the gorilla glass then I am sure it is strong enough to penetrate the supposed "protective cover".

    There are several, but so far the only back cover that claims to work with Smart Cases is the Marware Microshell. It's supposed to ship the first of April.

    Do you know if it will fit properly? Thanks for your response.
