    I got an zagg screen protector for my son on launch day, me and the wife just got ghost armors installed on ours at the mall today. So far I like the feel of the ghost armor but it has visible lines that are "supposed" to go away. Also looks like there may be some dust under one of them. Does anyone have any experience with ghost-armor?

    Edit - Never mind I guess I am going tomorrow to get it fixed. After the haze cleared up on the wife's there is definetly an facial hair under the protector on the screen. I am actually surprised its not bubbled around it, but bubbles around a speck of dust weird. This hassle aside, I love the ghost-armor way better than the Zagg. This is also the exact reason I paid them to install it. If they screw up its not skin off either of our backs. But if I do it, I gotta pay to replace it etc.

    I was in a mall in SF East Bay area the ghost armor people wanted $65 bucks. I told them they were smoking crack. Id never get zagg I considered ghost armor until now. I don't know what I will do til portenzo gets it together.

    I've used Zagg on the iPad 1 and my iPhone 4, also wrapsol on iPhone 4, also BodyGuardz on iPhone 3G.

    Ghost armor coming for iPad 2 be here mid next week, looking forward to seeing how it compares.

    @gdeptuy: Like gigemzach, would love to hear how about your experience with all these products and how they compare? Maybe even recommendations and why?

    i have ghost armor on iphone 4 AND ipad 2 now...VERY happy with it...very good feel to it..and i felt it actually leaves fewer fingerprints than the actual glass of the iphone or ipad...now i'm just tryin to find the best case for my ipad 2 which has the front AND back ghost armor...was a little pricey ($58 installed at local mall), but in my opinion VERY worth it!

    Put Zagg on my v1 pad. Did it with a minimum of bubbles, eh. It provided protection, but felt a little tacky, thick and sticky.

    Paid the mall kiosk to install the GA. Can't tell it's there, professionally done.

    I'd take the Zagg over nothing, but prefer the Ghost Armor to the Zagg.

    Another nice option with Ghost Armor is a matte option which looks amazingly cool on the back. Gives the aluminum a kind of matte steel look. Installation at the malls *is* a little pricey buy they also offer a lifetime warranty on the product and will replace the skins (front, back, both) for a nominal service charge only.
