Anti-reflective coating + screen protector

I have had every iteration of the iPad (except 4th gen) and have ordered my Air 2 for delivery this week......

I have always used screen protectors to guard against unwanted scuffs and scratches, but am wondering on the Air 2 if use of a screen protector will render the anti-reflective coating on the Air 2 useless?

Any ideas?

Well yes. Place a screen protector over a piece of wood. You will notice that the wood, which normally is not reflective at all, will indeed become reflective.

It depends a lot on the what type of screen protector you use

I always use the Media Devil crystal screen protectors (on all my devices).

This will be the first iPad when I don't apply a screen protector due to the anti reflective screen.
