Are these the ones that you used to be able to purchase in the Apple Store for the iPhone/iPod Touches?

These are good ones. I've had one on my iPod Touch and no issues what so ever. There doesn't seem to be any tactile issues either.

Only problem I have is the $25 price tag. Man these companies are raking the profit in. Anyone have a discount coupon? :D

I'm going to pay close attention to this thread. I have one of those on my iPhone and have thoroughly enjoyed it...not in a way where I'm sitting there admiring the hell out of the anti-glare film, but I've enjoyed no fingerprints and no glare. Sure I wish I could go w/o one, and might still do so on the iPad, but if push comes to shove and I need one, I will probably choose this one.

Looking forward to some reviews in this thread, if possible.

Any specific reason why?? I was actually going to place the order for the Steinheil simply because someone on another thread posted pics and it looked good! But then other people started talking about the powersupport and i wasnt sure anymore.

In my opinion the Steinheil are clearer than the powersupport ones, but those were for the iPhone, I assume its the same way for the iPad.

And another recommendation for the SGP Steinheil. I love the one I have and still prefer it over the PS on my iPhone. Just barely though.

opppsss. I already ordered one from PS. hmm... you need to told me earlier. :D. Anyway, someone need to compare between Steinheil and PS. I ordered PS because previously I am very very happy with the iPhone crystal one. So, hopefully, the anti glare one is not that bad.

update: After checking the website, seems like Steinheil does not have the anti glare one yet.

Just got my powersupport anti-glare for ipad. I used SGP AF for my ipad before but I can't bear the blur effect (It seems there may be more than one version of SGP AF. Hope the blur effect on my ipad is the special case). I tear down and put powersupport anti-glare on. It's awesome (based on my 10 minutes usage on the new PS AG), even better than what I expected. It's hurt to tear down SGP AF because of the money I spent, but it's worth getting clear screen using PS AG.

It's much more tricky to install screen protector on ipad than iphone because the much larger screen area. Even though I have much experience of install screen protector, it takes much more time to do it perfectly on ipad. Powersupport has great tutorial videos for iphone version on their website, and I strongly recommend people to watch them before start to work. The only con of powersupport is that they only give me the screen protector but SGP provide cloths and lcd clean spray which is very helpful to clean previous smudge.

I may have to try this. I went through the hassle installing the best skins ever one (with water) and it was a PITA. For the first time ever I have a bubble (on the black part of the screen). I've been using these on my devices for quite some time but this time around it was incredibly difficult to manage. I've also used the power support film. I think i need to see how the anti-glare fares in terms of actual visibility. I'd hate to cover this nice screen with haze.

Amen to that! It's literally twice the price,and you only get one shot with screen. Hopefully as the IPad gets more accepted the prices will drop.

Now I don't know what I want. Like the anti glare when not watching ABC but like it without anti glare when watching ABC.

Clearly, the answer is to own two iPads.

I bought the PS clear screen protector today. I don't use a protector on my iPhone, but on some level I consider it more...expendable. We'll see what I think of a protector on the iPad.

I put these things on my iPhone and I've got it down to a science and can get them on every time lined up, with no dust and no air bubbles.

These things are so freaking big for the iPad - I just don't see how you can apply one without getting dust in there - or without touching the screen side of the film.

$24 and one shot to get it on...

unroll the protector to the dust spot and use tape to pick up the dust, then reapply. I think the tape applied to the protector itself is the idea - use a dust blower to clean the screen

I enjoy how iLounge states they prefer the Power Support over the SGP Steinheil even though if you look at that article they never once show you a picture of the Power Support screen protector for the iPad...they show off the package, but if you look closely you can see the Incipio’s and Steinheil's out of the packaging so you can compare the screens. I'm not saying iLounge is biased or not, but its weird that they like Power Supports better and claim the Steinheil is milkier, but fail to provide a side by side comparison or let alone a photo of the screen protector.

I am going to get the power support anti glare screen protector for the iPad and power support say that these can be removed and cleaned.

Has anyone successfully done this with a power support product ?

With the fact these apply using static won't it be almost impossible to wash and dry them without the film collecting loads of lint and stuff on the static side?

Any secrets to success with these ?

I think BSE changed their skins over the past year or so. I've never had any issue putting these on, but the one I put on my iPad bubbled up and didn't look right, so I had to remove it.

Plain soap and water. Before cleaning, place a small strip of tape on the touch side of the overlay so that you can distinguished which side is which.

Sorry took so long to reply, I installed it and I absolutely love it simply for the fact that all of those ghastly fingerprints are GONE!

Installation is definitely much more difficult than the iPhone simply because of the size.

The glare is reduced a ton as well I couldn't be happier. Now it does change the feel, it doesn't have the same glassy feel but I don't mind it.

Lastly, I have like 5 pieces of dust under it which sucks balls, I swear I tried it in the cleanest environment possible for me!!

Advertising has its place, but thats just silly.

On a related note, I actually got my Zagg Invisable Shield on Saturday and installed in Sunday.

Frankly while I love the back and side protection, the screen just feels cheap now. The plastic is going to offer a lot of protection, but at a cost.

It doesnt help with glare, in face I think its worse.

But it does help with fingerprints.

I'm very conflicted.

Depending where those pieces of dust are, you can use a piece of scotch tape to pull the protector up and another to get the little pieces of dust. Just don't try and end up with more dust.

BestBuy had a Zagg on a display iPad, yuck. It felt sticky and nasty. It seemed to collect dirt too. Strange how this brand is hyped, kinda like Bose, I guess, but really unimpressed. I've used PS on my phone and just ordered a matte one for my piddy.
I'm ignorant on the reusability. Is my iphone PS screen reusable too! It's great.

Try the PowerSupport version. I have it on my iphone and it is sooooooo much better than the the Zagg. No fingerprints and smooth as silk feeling. Can't wait till my ipad screen protector comes in.

I just got my power support anti-glare protector. It makes the iPad way better. I don't feel like I am going to scratch it anymore and it reduces fingerprints and makes scrolling and swiping way easier. Yes, there is a reduction in clarity but it is well worth it. I've been using the anti-glare protectors since the first iPhone and they have always been the best. My coworkers have the ipad with various other protectors and they pale in comparison to the power support one. Installing the iPad one was a little tougher since it was larger.

I wiped down my iPad screen over and over using the microfiber cloth that came with my macbook pro. I made sure there was nothing that had lint around. I cant stand when it gets under the protector and you waste $25. It's somewhat tough to align the protector correctly the first time. If you follow what the videos on the power support website say, then you'll be ok. The method of using scotch tape to remove dust from under the protector really works well. I am obsessive with perfectness. It took me about 20 minutes to get it on correctly and without dust under it. It's still not perfect but that's just me, anybody else would think it is.

Bottom line: Power Support is the best in my opinion.

I don't notice any rainbows. I mean, it looks a little funky with the anti-glare properties but the benefits outweigh the negatives. I've never been wowed by the glossy screens in the first place, so I was able to deal with the slight reduction in clarity.

I got the crystal film from power support. It's easy to install if you only peel off the section with the hole, apply that part and then unpeel the rest as you continue to apply. Any air bubbles come out easy.

The film is not quite as glossy and slick as the iPad glass but put a little Rain-X on the film and not only does it make it more slick but it becomes even more resistant to fingerprints and wipes off easier. :apple:

I use the powersupportusa anti-glare on my iphone. The feature that stands out to me is that your finger glides across the screen VERY smoothly. With the default glass your finger tends to grab a little. You don't get any finger prints and the anti-glare works great too.

I was waiting for the powersupport version to be released for the iPad so I bought a cheap $4 (shipped from USA) iPad protector from ebay to hold me over. Surprisingly the $4 screen protector works pretty well. It is just slightly bigger than what it should be though so if you have a case it might snag part of the protector and cause a bubble on the edge. I carefully took a razor blade and trimmed it so that didn't happen. It slightly grabs your finger more than just the glass alone until it builds a layer of oil up on it from your fingers. It is nowhere near as smooth as the powersupport anti-glare on my iphone. For $4 though it was worth the money to hold me over.
http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Scratch-SCREEN-PROTECTOR-COVER-GUARD-APPLE-IPAD-/330421966833?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ceeaf17f1

Now that powersupport is available I will be ordering the anti-glare so that I can get that silky smooth finger movement.

I just installed my ipad antiglare film and I love it. I don't use anything on my iphone but this ipad is so big and gets so many prints on it I had to do something. The smudges were visible and it was quite annoying. It took me a while to get it installed with no bubbles and no lint but if you take your time and do it right it is worth it. I actually prefer this look of the matte to the glossy. Oh, and if you are in Los Angeles, Power Support is located in Burbank and the have a retail outlet. :)

Just adding myself to the list of those that installed the Power Support anti-glare film to my iPad. I've installed many screen protectors on a variety of devices over the year. I've never had an issue - no bubbles or anything else. That said, the iPad screen is *much* larger than anything else I've installed film onto. Here are some quick thoughts:

1. Somehow I borked the installation of the film the first time, and boy was I upset. Half my iPad screen had dust bubbles because of the number of times I had to realign the film. It looked like my iPad had the measles!

1a. I should mention that I was working as dust free as possible and my iPad was perfectly clean...not a spec of dust. I also use hand sanitizer to strip any oils from my fingers.

2. Power Support has great customer service. I called them on Friday (spoke with Justin), and he sent me a new one at no charge. They were so nice, they sent it overnight and I got the replacement that Saturday!

3. I once again went through my installation process (clean room, clean screen, clean hands, etc). I was able to get the film on with only 2 very, very tiny dust bubbles on the bezel - nothing on the screen, and it isn't terribly noticeable; I'm not going to bother with fixing it.

4. Working dust free is critical on a screen as large as the iPad's. Also, try to unroll the backing while applying the screen protector as quickly as possible. It's easy to get out air bubbles...dust bubbles...not so much.

So...in conclusion, Power Support rocks. The anti-glare film looks great and works very well for me.

:cool:
