    Definitely on the back....I don't feel the screen needs a protector film, but it does need a case to live in (to protect both the front (sides and bezel) and the back). Just not a screen protector film. I assume this is what you mean.

    No way in the front! The front doesnt need one, but the back and the corners are quite sensitive.

    I have one of the first V1 iPads, and use it all day, every day. I have screen protection on the front, and the standard Apple case (best of all that I tried). I will do the same for my new V3. My old one looks like it just came from the box.

    I like my ZooGue iPad Case. I have the Leather Genius Case, and it's very durable and adjustable. Most importantly, it keeps my iPad safe!!

    Also, I agree with the replies RE: Screen Protector. It seems like a shame to put something over that beautiful Retina Display, but I do suggest getting a protector for the back, just to be safe. A good quality case will take care of the rest for you.

    The back scratches easily so I'd definitely recommend one. I bought a $5 clear for back that works with the smart cover.

    As for a screen protector I got one from TJMaxx for $8 and doesn't ruin the screen quality at all. My coworkers all have scratched theirs and ended up getting one as well.

    If it has 4 folds and magnets to the left side of iPad it's called a SmartCover :)
