    I got these:
    2X PET Anti Glare Frosted Matted Screen for Apple Ipad - eBay (item 260595065372 end time Aug-28-10 19:54:37 PDT)

    Cheap at US$7 for two of them, free shipping. They are mailed and sometimes they get bent in shipping but the seller replaced one when that happened.

    It reduces the glare significantly and cuts down on finger prints. Not too hard to apply. Some bubbles but easy enough to push them to the edge with microfiber cloth.

    I just spent $40 total yesterday getting a Zagg shield and paying the kid at Best Buy to install it. I HATE it but not for the reasons most do in reviews. I don't mind the rubbery feel but the 'orange peel' look on the skin And the big foggy patches when the screen is turned off drives me bonkers, I hate it and it hasn't gone away a single bit since he installed it. He swore it'd be completely gone by this afternoon. I read tons of reviews afterward and that doesn't seem to be the case. I'll find out tomorrow but he's probably going to tell me I have to go through Zagg for a refund, not them (Best Buy).
    Anyone know?
    Ok, now on to read this thread...

    I installed a full Bodyguardz kit to my iPad 2 last night.

    The back has installed beautifully and I am really pleased with it, but the front is nowhere near as good. I managed to get it completely lined up and got all the bubbles out, but the cover shows lots of marks and indentations. Its been 21 hours since I installed it, but the fogginess which is supposed to go after 12/24 hours doesn't look any different.

    I was very gentle when applying the front, but it's looks like it's been through the wars. The worst area is around the camera.

    I will give it a bit longer, but I'm pretty sure it's coming off. The main thing I wanted to protect was the back, but I thought I would give the front a try. After reading loads of posts it would seem that the naked glass is very tough and quite scratch resistant anyway (fingers crossed). I am always very careful with my gadgets, so I think I Weill go back to naked smooth glass albeit with loads of finger prints...... Hardly any show on the shield.

    This is the same as me. The back looks really great! (soo shiny lol). But the front looks a right state :(

    It went on pretty easy, I did all the usual stuff (made sure screen was nice and clean, washed hands and made sure to spray them with the solution before going near the protector).

    But there's still loads of fogginess. I'v had mine on for ages now, like 2 weeks. And it's not showing any signs of clearing up. :(

    It can't be seen when the screen is turned on though, and not having the feeling it's going to get scratched at any second, makes up for it. So I'm just going to live with it lol.

    Thanks to your post I now have a naked screen :)

    I found the screen wasn't as responsive with the guard and it feels so much nicer now.

    Still keeping the back on though as that looks and feels great"

    Lol, just don't hunt me down if it gets scratched! :D

    I do miss the feel of the naked screen. But I was a nervous wreak whenever I used it.

    If I ever do decide to take the screen protector off (maybe if I get an iPad 3 lol). I'll definitely be keeping the back protector on, as much for the looks as the protection. :D

    As an update I thought I would contact the buyer and he very kindly gave me 50% of my money back which is great :)
