Good lord - I so hate screen protectors. Several years ago I swore them off forever. So I got my 3G iPad and bought the Square Trade warranty with the screen replacement policy. Today I received my MareWare Eco-Vue case. Really nice - I'm a little concerned about the tab that holds the unit in - but it appears to be a solid good looking unit. I am also surprised a bit in that I was concerned the bulkiness would turn me off - and I actually prefer the feel more than the Apple case - it feels more stable / secure. I digress - the unit also came with a screen protector. So - I just spent 10 minutes trying to get this thing on. Cleaned the screen dusted with a microfiber - got my credit cards, etc. My mistake - I forgot I needed to install the protector in a clean room used for assembling nuclear triggers. I ended up with about a dozen small bubbles spread out all over the damned thing - which I probably could have worked most out - but alas - a piece of dust the size of a micron (probably moon dust) remains - looking like I need to call the windshield chip-fill people to fix my damaged screen protector. Enough of this crap - goodbye screen protector - hello screen!
