    Got BSE last week, and tried to put them on yesterday. BSE for back protection is awesome. For the front, no way! The screen was too distorted with BSE. I was planning to use the BSE front until the PS Crystal is out. I guess I'll just have to wait.

    I love the back protection of my BSE. WAY better than Zagg.

    I would beware of bse. My front skin was a piece of s***. I asked for a refund they only refunded me 2 dollars. What a joke!

    It's because that's the difference between getting the total body and just the back.

    That's the nature of that kind of material. It svcks for a front skin IMHO. Far better to even pick up a cheap eBay static-cling dry application style than go with that vinyl material on the front.

    SGP or others work well also for more cost. I have an SGP on my iphone4, and put a cheap Fellowes dry applic style from walmart on my ipad1. It worked well enuf that I never forked over the $$$ for the SGP. Right now I have a $7 eBay version on my ipad2; works well. I do have the BSE back installed and am happy with it.

    Btw corners on my BSE went down fine with no hair dryer, just some patience. Having used these on other devices before, I knew to be patient. After the initial install, i waited a half hour before pressing the corners in place and ensuring alignment. Checked again in another half hour and they'd fully adhered. Hair dryer would be faster though. :)

    Got wrapsol and BSE last week. Applied one of each on two different iPads. Wrapsol was easier to apply. It's cut a little shorter all around and the corner cuts lay down easier than the BSE. I think Wrapsol is accommodating more for stretching during application. BSE fits almost completely over the entire back going right up to the edge for each side. In order for the corners to stay down I needed to use a hair dryer. They both look good. Wrapsol's price even with the discount code is to high IMO, but if you really must have a matte look and feel then it is the only option.

    I only use the back pieces. I don't like the feel of either on the front. I use nothing on the screen but if I were to, I'd get powersupport.

    What does it feel like? Looks great! Have you tried it with a smart cover?

    I don't really care for the smart covers but as for the feel, i love it. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about with people saying it's so rubbery. When I used a Zagg on my iPhone 4, i felt that way, but these feel nothing like that. Mine is as smooth as the original glass with no peeling edges.

    Phantomskinz has a matte option, and IMO is superior to BSE, Zagg, and Bodyguardz. I can't compare it with Wrapsol, since I have not used their product and probably never will due to the price difference.

    Sgp Steinhell is by far THE best screen protectors money can buy,, zaggs ( for example) have a terrible " orange peel " effect,, steinhells protectors are crystal clear and you can't even tell it's there.

    For back protection BSE is the best in value. Zagg's renowned orange peel rough feel and look ruins the esthetics of the iPad. I'd consider trying Wrapsol but is as expensive as Zagg.

    Both SGP and Power Support are the best screen protectors but Power Support, like Zagg, is getting too expensive.

    My only concern with the back protectors being cut too close to the edges is that if you have a case that grips the iPad, in time the protector rubs off.
