    Ok firstly i want to apologize if there is a thread that covers this topic but with a quick search i couldn't find anything.

    But to the real question: Does the Power Support Anti-Glare take away from the screen resolution of the iPad 2? I originally had no intention to stick anything on the iPad's screen and go with the natural feel of the glass. Yet because i've heard nothing but good things about the Power Support AG, the fact that glass does tend to scratch eventually, and also that the natural glass feel can be a bit difficult to use after a while i started pondering getting the PS AG. Yet my deepest fear is that it will take away or hinder the pristine colors and resolution of the iPad which is a major reason why i love it. So to re-propose my question: Is the resolution retraction minimal enough to invest in the PS AG?

    Addition: Is the PS AG worth the 35 dollars or so its going to cost me to order and ship it to me?

    Thanks for any replies and help in advance. :)

    I'm hoping the same thing but I pulled the trigger and purchased it 10 minutes ago.

    First off every AG screen protector will take away from the clarity but the powersupport AG takes away very little so much so that it is barely noticable. Plus it is really smooth and your finger will just glide across the screen. Ive tried a bunch and i can honestly say it is well worth the price.

    I have always used crystal protectors before but bought a PS anti-glare this time and if it takes away from the clarity I haven't noticed it. Plus it's very nice to the touch and really does prevent fingerprints. It went on very easily (easiest i have ever used and I've been using screen protectors for a decade or more). I'm very happy with mine. Hopefully you will be too because it is pricey.

    I have a Power Support AG on my iPhone 4 right now, and I had their AG on my iPad 1.

    My Power Support Anti-Glare Film Input

    I've had the PS AG film on my iPad 2 for several weeks now and it looks great. I certainly hesitated on ordering the AG, but after installing it, I was very happy with the clarity of the display. The glare factor is gone and I rarely have to clean off any finger prints. When I show my iPad to others, who have iPads themselves, the first thing they say is, "what a great looking screen". I think you'll be happy with the PS AG film.

    Same here. I always use clear ones so I was worried, but don't regret it one bit.

    No, it does not.

    Without the screen protector, the screen rez is 1024x768.

    With a AG screen protector, the screen Rez is still 1024x768.

    You are thinking loss in clarity and yes an AG screen protector does take away some clarity.

    My apologies for using the wrong word. When i said resolution i assumed people would know what i was talking about, but yes you are correct the question should be about screen clarity.
