    I use 'bestskinsever' brand, virtually no orange peel effect like some and can also get a back cover too which keeps it all scratch free. Use them for all my gadgets. Delivery is usually only a few days and cheap postage.

    I tried a few but settled on the Splash Masque HD. It was a piece of cake to install which I can NOT say for the others I tried. It went on easy, stays on, NO liquids are used, and it's fairly invisible. I will admit that you can slightly tell that there is a screen protector on the screen but it doesn't bother me at all.. I wouldn't cal it orange peel though, more like a very thin veil of sorts. I dunno. Works for me. ;)

    Power Support. I've tried many others and NONE have come close. Not cheap, but definitely worth it.

    Ya know, thats probably the right answer. Any screen protector takes a little away from the display quality. ;)

    Same here. I use a smart cover and keep the screen clean so there's no debris to scratch it.

    I wouldn't use a screen protector, either (as I do have the Smart Cover) but my cats love to play with the iPad, too. They have their little mouse games and the App for Cats-they do their own painting:

    Gumdrop. By far the best case I've ever had. You can't even tell there's a screen protector, very clear picture.

    Anyone 2nd these choices? There has got to be an overall winner. I've tried a couple but not happy with the long term results

    Yes I did say "anyone" but here's how it goes. any one can not be you because you are the one and since you are the first one it is impossible for you to be anyone since you suggested one. And with you being the someone who recommended one you are now a "They" as we would say. Thereby excluding you and from being anyone.

    I personally use the invisibleSHIELD, they market it as “Nano-memory” technology that was originally used to protect helicopter blades in the US army.
    A bit over the average price, but meant to give extra protection (so far so good) with no or little extra thickness (i can confirm), also meant to repel dust.
