    So i read that there is a substantial difference in clarity and scratch resistance between anti-glare films made by different manufacturers, but how do the clear/crystal type films compare? Is power support still the best regardless of the type of screen protector or is there a smaller gap in quality compared to anti-glare films? So far i heard that there is only a small difference between power support and incio clear films. Anyone have any input?

    Umm the main difference is one is completely clear and the anti glare one is, well.... anti glare.

    There is no difference in performance.


    the rest depends on the brand protector you get. Some NOT anti glare ones make your finger stick and not slide across the screen as easily. Some anti glare ones feel REALLY good and really slick. Just depends.

    My wording might have been confusing. Sorry.

    Im just asking how the power sopport crystal would coompare to other clear/crystal type films made by other ( lower-end) makers.

    I know the difference between clear and anti-glare film, of course.

    To all the Anti-Glare screen protector users,

    Does the anti-glare film resist fingerprints as well when the iPad is powered off?

    Mine is the glossy film and all the finger prints show up very clearly when the power is off!

    Thinking of switching to the anti-glare type which has a matt surface.

    Mine is glossy too and shows fingerprints easily. I tried a matte surface protector that did a good job with fingerprints but made small text hard to read. I also didn't think the matte did well with glare. I don't know if there is a perfect shield out there. But if it ain't optically clear, I ain't using it.

    I'm using the power support anti-glare and I think the display is surprisingly sharper than what I expected. The milky effect is what worried me before too but it's really not bad. It's even better than their anti-glare for iphones.

    Hi Josun

    I've seen my friend's anti-glare screen protector for his iPhone and it seems to dull the image making it less sharp. That's why I'm worried that the same thing will happen if I get the anti-glare for the iPad. However, this time, the effects will be more pronounced than the iPhone as the screen size is so much bigger. Although I do notice that there is no finger prints on the matt surface....

    Hey Mayo, for what i know is anti-glare would keep the screen oil-free and provide better vision when u r surrounded by strong light. As for protection, I believe most of them are very similar or even the same.

    And, I heard that there is a screen protector looks like a mirror, I want to try that one ! :p

    One was given to me that I used on my itouch. I removed it the next day. Yes it works very much like a mirror when the unit is off. When on, it was too glarey for me.
