    Hi all

    I am new to the iPad and was just wondering do you need a film screen protector for the iPad 3. I had an iPhone 3GS and it definitely needed screen protector because of all the scratches it got, is the iPad 3 a better screen so that you don't need a screen protector?

    Thanks for your info

    I've bought one for my ipad2 but never used it. My phone only really scratched because of it going in and out of my pocket. Instead invest in a good soft case and you shouldn't have any issues. I used to have a mirrored screen protector for my phone too and found it to not be as responsive too touch. Ofcourse this is for general usage.
    Just cherish the iPad and treat it like a new born baby and you will have no issues :)

    I don't use a screen protector either. However, I keep it safe and sound in an Invellop folio case and pretty much rub it with a diaper:eek:

    You could always get an Otter Box for your iPad!

    I tried an anti glare screen protector on my iPad 3 and it looked like crap. Right now I don't have one but I'm nervous about it.

    I've never had one for either of my iPads. My original iPad still looked new and it never had one. I just make sure it's in a good case at all times when not in use. I can't stand to see the slightest bubble from screen protectors. I don't think I'll put one on my new iPad either.

    My iPhone is in the otter box case.

    I hate screen protectors and the otterbox case. It makes it bulky. The iPad is meant to be held without a case. Just take care of it, but a back shell piece and a smart cover....

    Yes the otter box case is bulky, but I can tolerate it on the phone, I wouldn't want it for my iPad. I tend to sometimes drop my phone : (
    Fortunately I have never dropped my iPad, whew. I like the smart cover and the back shell too. I got this keyboard case, but it's feeling to heavy and bulky. I'll probably go back to the smart cover setup. But, no screen protector!!

    I got the anti glare screen protector from power supply. It was $30 but well worth it. Finger prints are a non issue now and the anti glare really helps since I use it as a gps for my car. This brand doesnt affect the screen quality in my opinion and installing it was a cinch. It uses static to adhere instead of sticky residue so it is washable and re-usable.
