I always used incipio screen covers on my ip4 as they came with the feather case I always bought- very good fit, so id imagine the same with an ipad, although much more difficult to get it aligned.

I splashed out on the griffin screen care protection pack for my ipad 2, it was an awful cut, left 2mm uncovered either side as well as leaving the front bit just under the home button uncovered.

I took it off, and ended up using a cheap on i got from ebay which fitted much better and was easier to install- if the protector isnt cut to fit the entire screen, it's so much harder to align it centrally as you can't line it up with one edge.

Yea, the Incipio screen protectors fit my IP4 very well. I was thinking of getting the incipio case because it didn't get very good reviews and supposedly not compatible with the iPad 2 smart covers? The good thing is that it comes with a screen protector, but I need more info about it before I snap one up. I do think it's good value though.

I usually go with bestskinsever. Water based application but I find this is the best fit and easiest to get all aligned. Although my current iPad Does not have a screen protector but I love how the screen feels without one.

Power Support. Hands down.
They are more expensive but in the end it will pay for itself since there won't be any air-bubbles nor crackles. It's amazing quality, doesn't get smudge nor fingerprint on it. Also it fits very nicely on the iPad 2, if you misfit it, remove it and do it again - the special glue on the backside will stick again.. and again, again and again.

Been using mine for a month now and I'm still blown away by the feel of it when swiping the fingers on the screen. Best value, for sure!

Ghost Armor or invisible shield. Ghost Armor has a better feel.

have used Zagg screen protectors on six iPhones and five iPads without a single issue,,, slight knack to your first install but easy enough to manipulate til right, after the first the rest were easy..... just a note; recently my bike slid out from under me on a hill with gravel, iPhone popped out of my pocket and slid face down over the gravel about thirty feet.... thought that was it but when I picked it up, other than being dusty the screen was unmarked!!!! Zagg is the best.

These are a great deal and on sale. I have tried a few different kinds and the reviews speak for itself. 3 layer PET film from Japan also.

I've been using the matte screens from Monoprice.com. Pretty cheap and it does what it needs to do to meet my needs. I can buy 5 of these for the price of the Power Support versions.

Just an FYI, I got the UC version of protector from SGP and it doesn't allow the Apple Smart Cover to function properly with the auto on/off feature. It appears to be too thick so the magnets do not work. :(

I am in the process of discussing this with SGP Support. Not sure what the resolution will be.
