    Sorry to have to start a new thread but I can't seem to find what I want by searching. I tried but the number of responses just comes up too large.

    I read on this forum of an iPad screen protector that is only adhesive where it touches the border of the screen. The part that covers the visible screen is non adhesive but apparently adheres tightly.

    Can anyone help me on this. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the replies

    Thanks for the help. I found and ordered on Amazon. There were 261 five star reviews and only 2 one star. Looks like the only drawback is that it does not work well with a stylus which was mentioned even in some of the 5 star reviews. Fortunately this is not a problem for me as I use my iPad mostly as an entertainment device. There may be some loss of screen fidelity too but that is just as true of the ZAGG protector I have installed now.

    One reviewer mentioned that there is no hole for the front camera but if this is important to you you could cut one out. This camera is mostly for Skype and avatar portraits anyway, not fine photography.:)

    Could always use a one hole punch to cut one out :)

    Don't overlook site restricted Google searches. They quite often work better than most forum search functions.

    Product installed

    I got my Moshi protector last week but installed it today.

    1-There is a camera hole now which means the company responds to feedback.
    2-Unlike other screen protectors I have used, installation is a breeze. In fact I left a speck of dust on the screen. I just peeled back a corner and whisked it off with the supplied cloth. Great.
    3-It is true that a stylus may not work properly. In fact the two that I have do not work at all. Don't buy this if you feel you must use a stylus.
    4-Touch sensitivity seems very good with fingers. I tried my favorite game, Jade Monkey, that requires immediate sensitivity. If you have to punch twice your opportunity may be gone. It clicked every time.
    5-Best thing ever: Absolutely no bubbles.

    I have not used it in bright sunlight but anyway, my supposedly anti-glare ZAGG protector was useless in even indirect sun.

    I am very happy and appreciate the help I got here.

    Amazon

    Bought it on Amazon for $29.95 w/ free shipping. Got to Hawaii in four days.

    I think the price is comparable to a ZAAG at a retail shop. There are cheaper protectors on the market but I think this one is worth every penny. I now have about 8 hours use with no downsides that I can see.

    I'd actually recommend getting one on Amazon. The one i'm using is ArmorSuit's and the reviews are solid. I personally like the Life time warranty feature. Has anyone else had a chance to check it out?
