I can recommend BSE:

I put their skin on my iPod touch and really like the material. I have one in the mail (should be here today or tomorrow) for my iPad2.

I ordered from sgp last night. Still thinking about zagg for the back. I have to wait though since I ordered a danbo decal last night too.

Power Support protectors for iPad 2 is coming soon. This is the best screen protector I have used. For the back, use wraposol.

I loved PS screen protector for iphone, but they dont anything yet for ipad 2. In the mean time what can i use for front!! I dont like zagg invisible shield.. they are sticky and tacky.
I also use wrapsol for back for my iphone, but for ipads is kind of expensive for full body. I wished they just had a back one.

Ordered a screen protector from sgpstore.com on Tuesday - I've owned a few of their protectors. Tracked it today and it is scheduled to be delivered today.

These things really go for $20/$30 for only a screen film?

There is no lifetime warranty on this product.

After ruining my Clarivue Screen Protector when I had my 32GB iPhone 4, I'm not going to spend more than $10, the clarivue cost me $20 shipped.

After Google/eBay, I found Xtreme Guard. I just got one for my BlackBerry Bold 9780 for $2.49 each (bought two) and ordered one for my iPad 64GB 3G, less than $10 shipped.

It's not as easy to apply like Clarivue but it does the job.

Maybe you can try Screen Protector From Splash for your Ipad2,.. I found one from here http://www.technupower.com/ipad-2-sc...lash-1009.html then I compared with other. But don't know if it suitable for you Holyindian,...

Don't bother with splash. I have put many screen protectors for my iPads n friends n splash is the worst of all. Bubbles, lints (even when hold in the air). A lot of headaches.

I have been looking around for Screen protectors for my iPad 2 as well... looked around, saw this one and purchased it. http://www.handhelditems.com/ipad-an...-p-161160.html
Decent in price, and works perfectly fine, the screen protector order even came with a small stylus pen lol. Either way I think instead of spending $20-$30. This is definitely a better deal instead.

I ordered mine around the 23rd and got it this Monday which is 28th. If i counted it as business days I guess it took around 4 business day to deliver. Not bad since I have experienced way delayed shipping from other sites before.

I personally like my Zagg.......plus there is a lifetime warranty on it. Can't tell you how nice is it so tear it off when it starts to show any wear/tear and only have to pay $4 for shipping for a new one.

There are however a LOT of people here that are NOT fans, not sure why, but I like mine and have had them on my 3G, 3GS, 4G and now iPad2. HTH

I have this on my iPad as an "emergency." While it's a fantastic value, there's a rainbow effect all over the film (though it's not noticeable when the screen is on) and it's a finger print magnet and do not wipe off easily. If it wasn't for the extra protection, I wouldn't have used this at all. Bare screen works a 1000 times better.

I can vouch for Xtremeguard. The ebay ads seem a bit on the shady side, but i have one for my nook color and i see no difference from all the other $29.99 apply-with-soapy-water ones. i'll never consider paying more than $10 for a screen protector.

Would you not consider sgp for both screen and back? Does wraposol or zagg make that much of a better product for the back?
