    I don't use one. I use the incipio feather cover for the back and the apple smart cover for the screen.

    I used to have one for my iPad 1, but it took away from the beauty of the screen. For my iPad 3, apples smart cover is all I need.

    I did on iPad1. Installed one initially own new iPad. Removed it, glad I did. Transparent or not they detract from the crispness of the display and create more drag for a stylus and/or finger. Strictly my opinion.

    I keep nice'n clean wipes in my desk and clean the screen once a day and I am quite happy.

    Blech.

    Never had a screen protector and never wanted one. Don't like the touch/feel of them.

    I had the iPad1 for about 18 months without one with zero issues. Going for the same time frame (or longer) on the new iPad...

    As always, YMMV.

    No screen protector, I hate them although have to have one on my phone because of the abuse. My iPad stays at home and goes on trips, really no reason for one IMO..

    I go back and forth. I prefer without one but I'm scared of scratches so I go through periods of not having one, then I put one on for a while.
