    Two questions

    Did anyone get the full body installed on the iPad 2? I'm interested in it but want to know how it affects the speaker.

    Did anyone who got the zagg invisible shield put on the screen have a problem with the cut? On mine the camera hole is off my a few centimeters and covers part of the camera.

    I will let you know when I install mine today or tomorrow. On my first iPad I didn't install it for a few months because the glass felt so good. After installing one on another iPad and seeing how good it felt and looked, I immediately put one on mine.

    So my new iPad will have one put on immediately.

    I can tell you for sure that the Zagg invisible shield screen protector in my iPad 2 is not the most beautiful thing. If you make the camera hole be centered in the top properly then the home bottom is off, the home bottom hole in the shield is to low! Maybe I'm a pain but I really don't like that much, I picky. I will email Zagg for sure to see what they say.

    Over all I love my iPad 2!

    I was installing the Zagg invisibleSHIELD on the ipad 2 last night at work and we tried 4 different zaggs but no luck. I believe that they are just defective and hopefully zagg will release a new batch.

    In my past experience Zagg has had great customer service and replaced anything I needed, so I'm sure they will take care of any problems. I've screwed things up myself and had them want to replace it free.

    I Had my wife take mine back today so they could redo it (had a big smudge underneath) as well as the holes being way off. They told her that a lot of people are bringing their Zaggs back. They took mine off for me and refunded my money. I'm going to wait till they release a new batch.

    When I bought my iPad at the Best Buy in Athens, GA they came around and told us that the invisibleSHIELD did not fit properly and everyone around me, including me, gave theirs back.

    I would not recommend it to anyone and if you got it take it back and get something else the holes don't line up and there is about 1/8 gap all the way around I know it's hard to make it prefect but they could have did a better job but I still put it on I don't have anything else and I don't want shinny new iPad 2 getting scratched up after a couple of days I kind of expected it to not fit right because they didn't have anything to test them on before they shipped out just like the first couple of cases for new mobile devices when they rush to get them on the market and they never fit right I will be getting a replacement because it looks like crap I'm going to make this one work for now and wait a month or so and they should have it good by then

    I had the option to get my money back but I'd rather have my iPad protected until the new batch comes in. They said they would save me one and call when they arrived. I'm not crazy about the back being exposed. Don't know when the full body will come in. Hopefully soon.

    LOL, so does mine, and it won't come off until I get something to cover it. Skinit also has Ipad 2 Skins ready to go.

    So with the first batch that screwed up, do they cover the screen and fit besides the camera hole being off? I'm asking because I really need to get a shield on here immediately. I went with my first iPad for months without one and took great care of it. But when I noticed a small scratch on my screen I was crushed.

    My iPad 2 needs a shield from the get go because I may sell it for a larger model, and mostly I'm just obsessive compulsive about my devices not being scratched. I'm wondering if the current invisishield will work and fit except for the camera hole so I can be protected until the revised model is released.

    The cover work with no problem, what I did to my cover was, I centered the camera and then I let the home button be off. Still a pain for me because I want this perfect but it do the job for now until they fix the situation.

    Some people would write off these accessories as "trivial",that's what I used to think. I never really thought there would be any need for a scratch protector. But then I decided to get one for myself, I chose InvisibleShield. I was concerned about the air bubbles, but another frustrating thing was getting the protective layer to actually align with my iPad and look neat around the side. It was so off mark on my ipad.

    If they're going to make these protective scratch layers, they need to make them compatible with the device they are being used for, otherwise there is no point of using it. That is one problem with InvisibleShield, I also got one for my phone, and it didn't seem to fit well on my phone with overlapping areas, and sides that just came up too short, and it was made for my phone's model. I didn't think I will have that much trouble with these accessories, but now I've seen that many of them are no more than trivial "extras".

    Not only are some of them rubbish in trying to install, but also unworkable in application. The so-called scratch proofing of InvisibleShield is just unrealistic, as I didn't see a single advantageous trait in its film layer. All in all, it's nothing more than a trivial "extra", which should not be taken seriously as some kind of enhancement.

    On a lighter note, some scratch protectors are decent enhancements, like Gagdetshieldz, which really provided protection to my iPad, and allowed for a sustainable, unblemished look, free from marks. That's the difference between an "extra" and an enhancement.

    I LOVE my full body shield from Zagg. There was an issue with the first model where the camera hole on the front piece as misaligned, but that has been fixed. It went on very easily (use extra solution to center it and then squeegee out the bubbles) on both sides, and 24 hours later it was set, bubbles gone, and used every day with out issue. I had one on my original iPad, one on my Droid Incredible, on all our iPod Touches, and soon to have one on my yet-to-be-purchased Thunderbolt.

    I swear by Zagg Invisible Shields.
