    Well woke up this morning to find a few hairline scratches on my iPad.

    You can only see em when it's off and the perfect angle into some bright light. I assume it's from the microfiber cloth and dust.

    Agreed. Screen protector is the way to go. I've never had a device without one -alll my past PDAs/smartphones, current iPhone and all my past iPhones, as well as my tablet netbook. I have the Invisible Shield on iPad and it's great. I have a crystal clear static type screen protector on the others and they works fine too. I'm very glad though to have the Invisible Shield.

    I haven't used a screen protector on my devices for ages, I used to use them al of the time and I was obsessed with cases and screen protectors to keep my devices scratch free, But now I don't use them anymore because they are always annoying to put on and I find they bring up too many bubbles that you keep having to smooth out. With that being said I haven't used one for my iPhone and iPad, I only have cases for them and I haven't had any kind of scratches on my devices... touch wood I never do either.

    I am just using the cloth I got with my iPad Apple case, a normal black cleaning cloth, works all of the time I just wipe my device smoothly using that to get all of the fingerprints off it as we all know the ipad is a fingerprint magnet.

    I don't think it's too good to use a napkin. Any soft cloth or microfiber towels from the dollar store work really well.

    I am going to agree with 1991 here as the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch is near enough as impossible to get a scratch, just loads of dirt and fingerprints. Give it a good clean with a cloth

    I'm still wondering what the general consensus is on screen savers?

    I don't think you can use screensavers on the iPad... Can you? Least I don't think you can all I have is the picture on the lock screen and I have display set to off after 2 minutes

    No need to say sorry bud, screen protectors are just meant to protect the devices screen from scratches when these devices are impossible to get scratches and using screen protectors I feel they are a waste of money and they are not needed if you look after your device properly and you can also just get yourself a case which will also cover the screen when not in use.

    It is not impossible to scratch the glass on these devices, just difficult. There are plenty of people out there that have scratched iPad screens. It only takes a grain of something harder than the glass to make a scratch (like sand for example). In reality however, when the screen is on you most likely won't see the scratch anyhow. The question is whether or not that scratch is going to bother you.

    Thanks JD. I've been wondering about screen protection for a while now, but I do take good care of my iPad, store it safely when not in use etc, so I guess you have put the issue into its proper perspective. Your good advice is well appreciated.
