    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with their screen protectors before? I'm leaning towards these for my iPad 2 because they come in 2 or 4 packs for a decent price. I know most on here will say to get SGP or PS, but I almost never get the first skin right and they cost a pretty penny for one shot. If these are similar to the radtech screen protectors I got for my first iPad, then I will be very satisfied.

    Interestingly, the myGear protectors appear to be cheaper on Amazon then their own store. They also have a 50% deal if you buy 1 or more of each of the Clear and Anti-Glare. So, for $15 + FS you get 2-Clear & 2-Anti-Glare. For $20 you can get either one of the 4 packs.

    Clear 2-pack: http://www.amazon.com/myGear-Products-LifeGuard-Protector-Generation/dp/B004Q79G2G/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1300508255&sr=1-1

    Anti-Glare 2-pack: http://www.amazon.com/myGear-Products-SunBlock-Protector-Generation/dp/B004QJRCX4/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1300508255&sr=1-4

    Clear 4-pack: http://www.amazon.com/myGear-Products-LifeGuard-Protector-Generation/dp/B004QZFOF6/ref=pd_bxgy_e_text_b

    Anti-Glare 4-pack: http://www.amazon.com/myGear-Products-SunBlock-Protector-Generation/dp/B004QZIVOM/ref=pd_bxgy_e_text_c


    Strangely they also have a 4-pack that includes 2-Clear & 2-Anti-Glare for $20, but with the current 50% off deal it's cheaper to buy the two 2-packs separately.

    I can't find anything about them but I'm probably going to order a set of each. $15 for 4 films is cheap enough to try them out.

    I feel like all non brand name (power support/sgp) films are probably the same anyway.

    Edit: ordered a set. I'll let you know when I get them. :)

    Yeah, i ordered the set of each as well shortly after making this thread. I don't think they are all the same, but I don't think there is a difference enough to see the price premiums we see on the SGP and PS, IMO.

    There are now a few reviews up on Amazon for the clear version. Overall it's getting good ratings with the few negative ones possibly being installation related.

    I think it might be buy 1 2-pack and get the other 2-pack at 50% off. Either way, I couldn't get the discount to show when I had both in my shopping cart, and opted to get the mixed 4-pack (2 clear and 2 anti-glare) instead.

    Got mine today. First off, I ordered 1 pack of clear and 1 pack of anti glare, but only received the clear pack. but hopefully that gets fixed since I just emailed them.

    I have always had my screen protectors aligned perfectly. I'm a little OCD.

    It fits "okay." maybe I've been spoiled by the PowerSupport films I have always had on my iPhones, but it's not awful. It's a bit short on all sides, and the camera hole is cut a bit low, but the opening is large so it's still completely uncovered.

    Installation: this is one of the films that has thinner fils on each side with the actual film in the middle. After removing and sticking side one down, there were a few bubbles that I squeezed out perfectly, but when I removed layer 2, it lifted up the protector, unaligned it, and introduced dozens more bubbles, which were still easy to get out. It probably wouldn't have been as bad misaligned had I realized it was lifting the protector sooner.

    In contrast, PowerSupport films lay on perfectly with a "that's it?" feeling. :p

    Overall, they're decent. I'll probably be getting a set of Powersupports when they come out, but these will do for the time being.

    Thanks for the pics! I received my package today, and I too was missing my Anti-Glare 2-pack. :confused: I plan on installing mine this weekend, but I guess I have no choice but to go with the clear first. At least from the pics it looks like it's pretty good considering the price.

    I emailed them after I posted that and today I received an email that they reshipped my order. Good luck :)

    Got the anti-glare set in today. Fits about the same but I don't know if I'm going to keep it on. It seems the blurriness is pretty bad compared to the anti-glare power supports I had on my iPhone 4.
