    Don't know if you can get it in the US but I got myself a new front from APR directly from the local apple shop.

    But I tried first Bodyguardz back and front.
    Front was really a pain. Back was a breeze. Why ? Shiny black is a horror to stick something on. Almost every imperfection becomes visible.
    What I have seen on mine and already on some pics here from different skins is that you see some kind of orange peel effect of these films. On black this becomes apparent. Also during application you 'damage'the skin a bit. So with the right reflection you see them.
    For the back this is a none issue as silver/grey is very forgiving.

    For the back I would recommend some wet film as it needs to stick around corners. So the bodyguardz is perfect. An I'm pleased with it. But for the front I will not get any Bodyguardz anymore.
    Removed it after 2 weeks as it would do the screen no good.

    That dry film APR was installed in 15 minutes. And what a difference. No scrathes no peel effect not imperections etc. Even with sheering light you don't see it.

    Where are you guys getting the Power Support shields from? I didn't see any at the Apple Store. I have the Power Support shield on my iPhone4 and love it. It is the perfect shield as far as I'm concerned. I just wish that they made a back shield for the iPhone4, do they make a back shield for the iPad2?

    Power Support Crystal Film...

    Ordered online...

    and had it installed at the Power Support Store in Burbank. I could have waited to purchase the film AT the store but I wanted to make sure I had one in hand before I made the trip to the store. EXPERT, QUICK installation for 5 bucks.

    Do you live in the US?
  17. macrumors 6502

    SGP has really good screen protectors.

    What is the best "cheap" screen protector?

    Just noticed the power support is $29.95. Are all these films that expensive? wow.
  20. macrumors newbie

    Films for iPads range from $20 and up. That's a reasonable price for PowerSupport.
  21. macrumors 6502

    If you want a quality film then yes.

    What's the difference between PS Anti Glare HD versus Crystal?

    Is crystal film more easily to get fingerprints than a naked screen?
