So I took the gamble and went with one of these guys from Ebay.

Very satisfied! Easy on and took me about 5 min or so. Had to use some tape to get rid of some excess dust, but it almost looks like there was never a screen protector on there in the first place! I haven't seen what others compare, but very satisfied overall! It covers pretty much to the edge so you have to do a perfect install or else you'll have a small amount running over the edge. Feels great and no loss of clarity of the screen! Fingerprint wipes off very easily. Doesn't smudge or fingerprint too much at all.

If you are looking for them just type in screen protector ipad 2 on ebay and you should find the same box design as the one shown in the picture. I'm going to get one for myself now. The one that's on there is my grandpa's.

Here's some pics (taken with iphone 4 - HDR)

I've had good experience with another cheap brand - Xtremeguard. Got one for my nook color and its similar to those zagg, invisibleshield etc ones where you apply with soapy water. about $10 as well. waiting for my ipad 2 one to arrive.

Static, like SGP or Powersupport. Probably not as good, but a heck of a lot cheaper and works as well as I need.

Just cancelled my powersupport pre-order and got one of these. Let's hope I can put it on straight!

Does it rainbow much?

A minor problem that will be experienced is the FaceTime camera on the from screen of the iPad, just like my iPhone 4, my screen protector has a small hole so that the camera is not covered, otherwise it will give a blurry effect when filming/capturing photos. Make sure that the seller states this in the listing before buying.

I actually got an antiglare one in the same package except it has a sticker on it that says frosted. It does make the screen slightly fuzzier than my Speck screen protector but it isn't horrible. My only problem is that the seller put it in an envelope so the mail carrier folded them to get them into the mailbox. It only has one small crease and it is on the bezel so I do have it installed but it won't last. It keeps lifting up around the crease.

I've just received and installed the clear version. From what I can gather, it looks like the film could have been for iPad 1, not iPad 2. It does have a camera hole but there's almost no room on the sides and there's a extra millimeter on top and bottom. Also, the home button hole is cut too perfect. Because of these tight designs, installing it required more time and effort than usual but once done it looks very nice. I was worried that it might have a rainbow effect as a lot of cheap films do but I'm happy to report that there's absolutely none of that. Minor fit issues aside, this is a very nice film and I'm very happy with it.
