    Anyone still hasn't touched the silky glass surface yet?


    Or, how long did it take you to uncover that clear plastic? Be honest.

    Took mine off the first minute. I did get the ZAGG invisibleSHIELD for my iPad. I am not crazy about that. It may be coming off. Feels very tacky to the touch. I think I may keep my iPad pardon the expression.....naked!

    I've never understood why people would leave the plastic on. I guess it's similar to people who sit on their couches with sheets over them...

    Took the plastic off before turning it on. But I did neatly fold it and put it back into the box. :)

    I have an InvisibleShield on my iPad and hate it. I saw a cousin's iPad with Ghost Armor over the weekend and got to compare them side-by-side and the GA looks much better.

    I have IS on both mine and hubby's iP4's though, and it seems okay there. Just stinks on the iPad, personally.

    Plastic off immediately. How else can I test the oleophobic (or whatever) coating??

    Rolled the plastic into a ball and let the cat have some fun.

    i know it's old... but want to add mine. i had mine for a week before i took it off. i neatly trimmed the flaps and taped them but in the end, i got worried that dust and what not might get stuck and scratch the glass or back so i took it off.

    Mine came off immediately. I really think people worry too much about these screens. Both of my parents each have an iPad that they use 5-6 hours per day. These things get hammered! While the screens sometimes have enough gunk on them for a midnight snack, they easily wipe off and look good as new.

    Now that's just cheap......depending on how long you've had your iPad.

    I removed it before I even plugged in the charger. How many of you saved the box it came in?

    I have the original packaging (box) for all my "I" stuff. I truly believe it adds value when I sell them on craigslist hours after I upgrade every year :)

    Took the film off before I turned it on and no protective screen cover either! This thing is meant to be used, it's tougher than you think! Absolutely no scratches either!

    Took it off immediately after I got the iPad. A few days afterwords I got the Apple case.

    Not really, some screens (not apple ones) are made out of plastic and scratch super easily, I have a 1st Gen iPod Touch that I carried with me daily 2 Years and dropped it many times and it has no scratch on the front
    However I do understand having a protector on crappy plastics if it doesn't affect the experience with bubbles and crap like that

    Chunky cases suck, I have several cases for my iPhone 3GS, a really slim plastic one that protects the back from scratches but not from drops that doesn't bother me and a chunkier one I use when I know I might drop it, like when I'm jogging, on my bike, It's like clothing...

    I don't care about the resale value, if I want my 200 - 600$ bucks back I'd rather not buy the device than torture myself protecting it
